They are likewise in the main 5 for the greatest number of contacts in the group and the two players make it into the Best 10 rundown for most passes finished this season. The couple has shown improvement over set up public cooperative individuals and are an essential motivation behind why Hyderabad are in the racing to be in the end of the season games this season.
