    "As for me, it was a challenging season with injuries hampering me, though I did a decent job and will look to come back better in the next season," Bhuvneshwar Kumar said after his team's loss against Punjab Kings.

    Sunrisers Hyderabad stand-in skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar was satisfied with his performance in the IPL as managing his injuries became a "challenge" in an otherwise disappointing season for his team.
    After winning five back-to-back games out of the first seven, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost six out of the next seven to finish eighth in the 10-team IPL table. "As for me, it was a challenging season with injuries hampering me, though I did a decent job and will look to come back better in the next season," Kumar said at the post-match presentation.
    As far as the season's positives go, Umran Malik and Abhishek Sharma's emergence augurs well for the franchise, said the senior India seamer. "We have had many positives, Umran Malik and Abhishek Sharma were the obvious positives, but we have a decent core of batting with Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran coming up pretty well," he added.
    But he had a word of advice for the team management. "We will have to look at our squad and the management will have to work out on the weaknesses ahead of the next season. We won five on the bounce and had the momentum, but it didn't go our way and we pretty much lost all our matches in the second half of the tournament." For winning skipper Mayank Agarwal, it was all about not being able to stitch back-to-back victories.
    "We couldn't stitch two back-to-back wins. We lost wickets in a cluster, and that at times derailed us. We have played an aggressive brand of cricket overall. We are going to sit and discuss now after the IPL. We were here to get two points and we were here to enjoy ourselves," Agarwal said.
