5 reasons why Sunrisers Hyderabad can win IPL 2018
Who is the X-Factor in the SRH team that has led to the Kane Williamson-led team dominating the league?
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been almost unstoppable in this edition of the Indian Premier League. They comfortably sit at the top of the table with 18 points and have already secured a spot in play-offs.
SRH won the 2016 edition of the IPL when they were led from the front by the flamboyant David Warner.
They look quite dangerous this time as well and have been firing on all cylinders in every single department - batting, bowling and fielding.
Their all-round performances often nullify the opposition team's aggression and enthusiasm, helping the Sunrisers to win matches with ease. They have strengthened their stand as title heavyweights and could go all the way to lifting the coveted trophy.
Here are five reasons why Sunrisers can be the Champions of IPL 2018:
#1 The stellar form of Kane Williamson
Kane Williamson has been a household name in international cricket and a key player in the Kiwi national side. His ability to steer the innings and change the run rate according to the need of the situation is what makes him such a dependable batsman.
He was signed by Sunrisers Hyderabad back in 2015 and was given the mantle of captaincy at the start of this season, after Warner was banned by BCCI and Cricket Australia. He has very ably handled the team and has led them to a play-off spot.
The SRK skipper has been on fire with the bat, leading from the front, scoring 625 runs in 13 innings and has struck 8 half-centuries so far.
