Sunrisers Hyderabad have suffered a big blow in the form of an injury to Billy Stanlake. The Australian was a key cog to their bowling department and with pace and bounce, he was just the perfect foil for Bhuvneshwar Kumar's seam and swing.

Although Sunrisers have not named any replacement so far, we take a look at five players who might receive a call-up from SRH as a cover for Stanlake.

#5 Kesrick Williams

2017 HERO Caribbean Premier League - St Lucia Stars v Jamaica Tallawahs
Kesrick Williams has some good variations up his sleeve

He was a fast bowler when he made his first-class debut back in 2011, but Kesrick Williams found his reckoning as a bowler in the shortest format as a bowler who could change his pace and length with dexterity.

While he will not be a like-for-like replacement for Billy Stanlake, but with his variations, he can be a great pick for SRH, especially as the tournament wears on and so do the pitches.
