Reading Time: 2 minutes

Table of Contents

Let us take a look at Sunrisers Hyderabad squad, strengths, weakness and their key players.

Squad

Kane Williamson, David Warner, Manish Pandey, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mitchell Marsh, Fabian Allen, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sanjay Yadav, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami, Bavanaka Sandeep, Basil Thampi.

Strengths

Openers: The opening duo of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow were unstoppable last year. The majority of the team’s runs were against their names and they will be looking to do the same again this season too.

Bowling: SRH has one of the best bowling attacks in the league. They have acquired some impressive bowlers in their earlier seasons and they are the weapons of SRH. The pace department is led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan will lead the spin bowling.

Captaincy: Ever since David Warner has become the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, a change has been seen. He has been able to motivate the players and make them play together as a team. SRH is a bowling-oriented squad and David Warner uses his bowlers quite effectively. Sunrisers are not a squad with many superstars, but they win with the team effort which has also paid of when they won their first ever IPL trophy in 2016. SRH will hope they can repeat this feat once again this year. Captain David Warner always leads from the front and gets runs from a blazing start.

Weakness

Batting: The openers score a mighty amount of the runs, leaving the middle order and finishers to play just a few overs, but even then, they fail to impress us. Players like Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma will all be under the radar and Hyderabad will hope it works out this season. At this year’s auction, SRH bought Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen, both being a much-needed addition for the finisher’s role.

Back-ups: Sunrisers Hyderabad has some really good bowlers and enough backups too, but when it comes to their batting unit there are only a few options. They only have three proper top order players with David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson and these are the players they depend the most on. In case an injury occurs, SRH could land in big trouble.

Key Players

1. David Warner
2. Jonny Bairstow
3. Rashid Khan
4. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
5. Vijay Shankar

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was. Tell them you were talking about Benny Leonard though, and you might hear a lot of "Who's that?" from the same group. But Benny Leonard most definitely belongs...

The Green Light: The Rugby Championship 2020

In what has been a challenging year for many rugby fans and mainly the players, the Southern Hemisphere's Rugby Championship 2020 tournament has just been confirmed for the back end of the season. The Rugby Championship tournament - previously known as the Tri-Nations - was inaugurated in 1996 with the three rugby-rich countries; Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, all contesting for the converted trophy.

IPL Talking Points

Efficient CSK get the job done again Before the tournament began, the Chennai Super Kings were touted to struggle by everybody analysing the game. But, on the opening day, post the opening powerplay overs, MS Dhoni proved once again why the IPL betting odds are always in their favor. From a position where they could have chased a tall score, CSK restricted MI to a chaseable total and then led by solid innings from...

Rahul’s Historic Ton Thumps Bangalore

KL Rahul struck the highest score by an Indian in Indian Premier League as Kings XI Punjab beat Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore by 97 runs. Rahul, who scored 132 not out, also achieved the highest individual score by a captain and the best for a Kings XI Punjab player with a generous Royal Challengers Bangalore bearing the brunt of his assault, offering little in the form of resistance. After being invited to bat first, KXIP...

The Torchbearers Of Modern Football

We are standing at the end of an era that was tinted with brightness and glam. Two of the greatest sportsmen ever to grace the surface of earth are at the twilight of their careers. They are aliens, some say. Some say they are superheroes in shorts. Two names at the heart of the footballing world, for the best part of two decades. The torchbearers of modern day football. The pace-setters of the business...

Different Options For Purchasing Golf Shoes

Golf is one of the most popular sports among wealthy and upper middle class men. While some play golf competitively, others play golf as a hobby and for networking with others. The performance of the golfer depends to some extent on the golfing gear and equipment which he is using. Usually golfers are wearing special golf shoes, which are designed so that the golfer can play his shots comfortably, without slipping. Hence many of...

Russell Wilson Is An All-Time Great QB

Russell Wilson, 0 MVPs, 0 MVP votes, 0 respect. He is one of the best quarterbacks I've ever seen, and he is showing himself to be the MVP so far this year. Russell Wilson at every stage of his career has consistently been elite and has carried the Seahawks into relevancy. He is underrated, has been elite, and has been one of the best QBs in the world since he's gotten here. How is it that...
