The high tide of SunRisers Hyderabad may leave the shore of the IPL devastated this season and may take the title away with it. Yes, you may not consider it right before reading this.
In IPL Auction 2018 SunRisers Hyderabad ended with a good quality and quantity of balloons in his stick to entertain the IPL fans this season with some fame balloon as S Dhawan, Shakibul Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, David Warner, Kane Williamson and many more. One may wonder about the thought of franchise that what they have thought before the auction as they have bagged the captains from the different plains on the earth. Although the team has won the IPL 2016 and this times also looks furious and will try to bag the title again with its able team in all the aspects.
Following a breakdown of SunRisers Hyderabad squad will move you out from the illusion that SunRisers Hyderabad team is nothing in front of RCB, CSK etc.
Retaining Myth: SunRisers Hyderabad retained the captain David Warner for 12.5 Cr and most wicket taker Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for 8.5 Cr. These are the only names that franchisers retained but they manage to get their team back at the end of IPL Auction with some new faces. The trio of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, and Deepak Hooda may prove to be very useful for the team.
Day winning Bid: For SunRisers Hyderabad the day winning bid was to bring Shakibul Hasan in their squad as he has good records over the era of IPL and he is good with both bat and bowl and can lead the team as well in the time of need with lots of experience of International Cricket.
List of captains: Although DA Warner will lead the team there are plenty of minds which can keep the team out of trouble with an enormous number of options for the franchisers and every card is in the form to win the pack of it. Like Kane Williamson is leading NewZealand team, Shakibul Al Hasan is the captain of the test format for Bangladesh, S Dhawan leads the domestic team of Delhi and Deepak Hooda head the team of Baroda.
The PLUS Point: Manish Pandey in the squad of SunRisers Hyderabad is the plus point for them to go for batting at any point of the time and can accelerate the run rate as well and the good news for SunRisers Hyderabad is that he is in the good form nowadays and it is said that he is the fittest player in the country. He can burst the crackers and can slow down the fire and keep the wickets safe from one end as needed. Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan are the sub plus point for the team as well as they can hit hard from the bat and can send the bowl over the rope in need and Pathan can bowl in death overs and is able to provide the breakthrough.
The Fear: As the team, SunRisers Hyderabad is full of overseas players and only four of the overseas player can play at a time so it will become a question of concern for the head to decide whom to take in the playing squad. David Warner will lead the team and Rashid will play for the spin now they are left with only two options for the overseas player while the local player will get more chances on this team.
RTM Card: S Dhawan was brought in the team through the use of RTM card in the IPL Auction 2018 and He is the key player of the squad and is in the good form too. A good start from the opener leads the team to a good total and Dhawan is a perfect match for it.
SunRisers Hyderabad Squad: David Warner(retained 12.5 Cr), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar(retained 8.5 Cr), Manish Pandey(11 Cr), Rashid Khan(9 Cr), Wriddhiman Saha(5 Cr), S Dhawan(5.2 Cr), Deepak Hooda (3.6 Cr), Syed Khaleel Ahmad(3 Cr),Siddharth Kaul(3.8 Cr), Sandeep Sharma(3 Cr), Kane Williamson(3 Cr), Shakibul Hasan(2 Cr), Carlos Brathwaite(2 Cr), Yusuf Pathan(1.9 Cr), Mohammad Nabi(1 Cr), Shreevats Goswami(1 Cr), Chris Jordan(1 Cr), Basil Thampi(95 lakh), Billy Stanlake(50 lakh), T Natarajan(40 lakh), Bipul Sharma(20 lakh), Mehdi Hasan(20 lakh), Ricky Bhui(20 lakh), Sachin Baby(20 lakh), Tanmay Agarwal(20 lakh).
