3 players who can help Sunrisers Hyderabad win IPL 2019
Sunrisers Hyderabad is going to be one of the favorites in IPL 2019. They finished as the runner-up last season as they were beaten by Chennai Super Kings. They were really impressive in their league games and finished at the top spot in the points table with a total of 18 points in 14 matches, winning 9 while losing 5.
This season they have got more strength in their squad as they welcome back David Warner in their squad who was banned from playing professional cricket for one year.
They retained their core players, the likes of Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, and Rashid Khan among several others. They went into the auction and strengthened their squad with the buys of Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, and Martin Guptill.
Some of the players in their squad will leave early due to their international commitments but looking at their squad, we can say they are still going to be a difficult side to beat. Here, we will see 3 players who can help them win their 2nd IPL title this season.
#1 David Warner
David Warner was banned from playing in last year's IPL due to his international ball tampering issue against South Africa. But he is returning back to the IPL with the franchise who loves him for what he does on the pitch.
He has been their best batsmen in the previous seasons and they will look up to him to provide some new energy and motivation to their squad. He will start the innings with the bat for them and might get the captaincy job which he used to do before the last season.
He scored 848 runs in 2016 at an average of 60.57 in 17 innings while he scored another 641 runs in 2017 at an average of 58.27 in 14 innings.
He has been putting up big numbers in his whole career at SRH and will hope to lead them with the bat again. His contribution will have a major impact on deciding if SRH can go all the way and win their second IPL title this season or not.
