#2 – Strong bowling unit

Sunrisers Hyderabad have one of the strongest bowling lineups in the IPL, with top-quality fast bowlers in their ranks. Their recruitment of Mustafizur Rahman during the IPL auctions might well turn out to be the best signing of the season.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, and Ashish Nehra have been the mainstay of the Sunrisers’ bowling lineup. The four seamers have 55 wickets between them with Bhuvneshwar and Mustaifzur in the running for the purple cap having picked up 18 and 16 wickets respectively.

Despite having a below-par season, Moises Henriques also contributed with the ball picking up ten wickets. Nehra missed out on the start of the season owing to injury and will miss the remainder of the tournament too. Although missing Nehra's experience will be a blow to SRH, they do have the bowling firepower to go all the way.
