Sunrisers Hyderabad has always been one of the most consistent teams. The Orange Army is probably the most balanced team in IPL. SRH too have realized the importance of keeping a 'core' intact. That core has only gone from strength to strength.
Let’s go deep and analyze how far Sunrisers can go this season!
Some Economic Buys by Sunrisers:
Virat Singh (Rs. 1.9 crore)
Priyam Garg (Rs. 1.9 crore)
Mitchell Marsh (Rs. 2 crore)
Fabian Allen (Rs. 50 lakh)
Newbies on The Block:
Dynamic left-hand batsman, Virat has the ability to bat at the top of the order and finish games in the shortest format of the game. He will be a good option to open the innings alongside Warner or Bairstow in case they want to try another combination of foreign players
An all-rounder from Jamaica, he has been a regular in the West Indies domestic T20 league and will be looking to use his experience in the IPL as well. A brilliant fielder as well.
Captain of the India U-19 2020 World Cup. Known to be a gutsy batsman springing up valuable overs in the middle of the innings.
Match Winners for Sunrisers Hyderabad:
Rashid bagged 17 wickets from 15 games in the IPL last year. He has been one of their biggest match-winners over the past three years and is an integral part of SRH squad.
An all-rounder with a capability to give a strong finish to their batting and also an invaluable spinner for their attack alongside his country mate Rashid Khan. He was in excellent form during CPL 2020.
He is the pillar of Sunrisers Middle order. He would also want to use this IPL as an opportunity to cement his spot in the Indian team.
Apart from the 4 foreign players (Warner, Bairstow, Rashid and Nabi), they don't have genuine match winners who have taken IPL by storm except Bhuvi (he didn't have a great IPL last year and has been out of action since a long time). So unless a couple of Indian players have a standout season I don't see them making it through the playoffs
