Sunrisers Hyderabad team

Now, let`s do deep research about the team combination, squad strength, and different player options available for the SRH team for the IPL 2020. Sunrisers Hyderabad has always punched above their weights in the IPL matches every season since 2013.    

Captain: David Warner

David Warner led the team to their maiden IPL trophy in the 2016 season and has scored over 600+ runs in the last two seasons he played. He will be an excellent opener cum captain for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in this season too. 

Batsmen: Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad

Kane Williamson is a classy batsman who can play on any kind of surface with ease. Manish Pandey is a quality batsman from Indian ranks who possess good fitness and temperament. Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, and Abdul Samad are the rookie players waiting for their chances in the playing XI. 

All-rounders: Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Mitchell Marsh, Fabian Allen, Mohammed Nabi, Sanjay Yadav, Bavanka Sandeep

Vijay Shankar is a medium pacer and good hitter down the order who played for the Indian team recently. Mitchell Marsh is a big-hitting all-rounder who can give effective overs with the ball in hand. Mohammed Nabi and Fabian Allen are spin bowling all-rounders who can score important runs down the order. Abhishek Sharma, Sanjay Yadav, and Bavanka Sandeep are young under-19 recruits who are waiting to showcase their immense talents at the big stage. 

Wicket-Keepers: Johnny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami

Johnny Bairstow is an aggressive opener who can take the game away from the opposition in a quick time. Wriddhiman Saha is the best gloves man in India and he can play good knocks in the middle order. Shreevats Goswami will be the reserve keeper in the team. 

Bowlers: Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Basil Thampi, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem, Rashid Khan, Siddharth kaul, Billy Stanlake

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will be the leader of their bowling attack like the previous two seasons. They have rich resources of local pace bowling talents with the likes of Basil Thampi, Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel, Natarajan, and Sandeep Sharma. Rashid Khan is the No.1 T20I bowler in ICC rankings. Shabaz Nadeem will look to add value with his left-arm spin bowling to the team. 

Best possible XI

David Warner (C), Johnny Bairstow (Wk), Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Rashid Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem

Remaining Players: Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Mitchell Marsh, Fabian Allen, Mohammed Nabi, Sanjay Yadav, Bavanka Sandeep, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Siddharth kaul, Billy Stanlake

SRH in IPL 2020 Prediction

SRH has arguably the dangerous top-4 batsmen in their playing XI with Warner, Williamson, Bairstow, and Pandey. They rely heavily on their top-order to score runs and lack players who can score big runs in the lower middle order. They have a rich depth of fast bowling resources with Bhuvaneshwar Kumar leading the pace department. But, they lack good spin bowlers in their squad barring the Afghan duo of Rashid and Nabi. Sunrisers Hyderabad lacks firepower in their lower middle order and have very few resources in the spin department. We expect the Sunrisers Hyderabad to finish in the league phase of the IPL2020 season due to their weaknesses in the spin department and lower-middle order.
