IPL 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad strongest possible XI
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to take place in 2020 and the IPL Auction 2020 happened yesterday in Kolkata. Sunrisers Hyderabad used their funds wisely as they did not spend too much on a particular player. They grabbed some Indian domestic stars who could prove to be worthy bids if used properly. Indian U-19 skipper Priyam Garg and Virat Singh were the two biggest Indian signings of Hyderabad. Besides, the franchise even got Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen in the overseas section.
The Hyderabad-based franchise would not make much alterations to their playing XI as the team had a good bunch of players in 2019. Their 4 overseas players might remain the same as they had an outstanding season last year.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Full Squad: Kane Williamson, David Warner, Manish Pandey, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mitchell Marsh, Fabian Allen, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sanjay Yadav, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami, Bavanaka Sandeep.
This article features the strongest possible line-up of Sunrisers Hyderabad for Indian Premier League 2020 which is as follows.

Warner smashed 692 runs in IPL 2019 in just 12 matches at an average of 69.20.
