The Sunrisers Hyderabad were a very cohesive unit in last year’s IPL

Sunrisers Hyderabad rose above all expectations to lift the IPL Trophy in 2016. They did so on the back of an incredibly inspired season from David Warner and a well-knit bowling unit. While they weren’t rated highly at the beginning of the season, with their consistent performances, people started to notice that they had a pretty solid unit.

They are rock solid at the top of the order with left-handers Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner forming one of the best opening partnerships. In the middle order, players like Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques have the ability to assess situations and adapt their playing styles accordingly. 

Their bowling unit is arguably the best in the IPL with the likes of Ashish Nehra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman proving to be deadly. 

With that said, they would like to strengthen a few areas of concern in this year’s auction. While Kane Williamson is one of the best players in the world, his suitability to twenty 20 cricket can sometimes be questioned. After having released Karn Sharma, they would need a leg-spinner as well.

Here, we take a look at 5 players the SRH should buy at the IPL auction.

Sunrisers Hyderabad squad - Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, David Warner, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha, Ricky Bhui, Kane Williamson, Siddharth Kaul, Bipul Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, Ben Cutting, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Deepak Hooda, Vijay Shankar
