The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) witnessed a forgettable outing in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) last year, where they finished last for the first time ever in the history of the tournament. Since the Orange Army could not impress much in IPL 2021, the team owners decided to bring about a massive change in the squad and coaching staff. One of the new players they signed at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction was Glenn Phillips.

In a recent Instagram story, Glenn Phillips revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of IPL 2022. So he is in New Zealand right now and will only join the squad once he recovers. He clarified saying, “For those who keep asking – I am stuck in New Zealand due to a positive PCR travel test. I will be joining SRH as soon as I can.”

One of the most important skills for a batter in T20 cricket is the ability to hit sixes. Glenn Phillips has been working hard to master that skill set.

In a virtual interaction, Phillips explained his workout routine and said: “Being in the gym has had a lot to do with it [six-hitting]. I’ve definitely put on some weight and started throwing a bit more tin around. At one stage I was sort of doing 800 [press-ups] a day over three sets. I’d do a set of 300, then 300, and 200.”

Glenn Phillips will be a huge boost for SRH squad. He knows how to clear the boundaries and can also keep the wickets for the team. SRH fans will hope that he joins the squad soon.
