IPL Auction 2019: Top 3 well-balanced squads
#1 Sunrisers Hyderabad
SRH are the runners-up of the last season. Last season, the Kane Williamson-led side performed exceedingly well in the absence of their usual captain David Warner. The Australian batsman's return should make them even more stronger in the 2019 season. It will be interesting to see who will lead the side next year.
Hyderabad traded Shikhar Dhawan for Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar and Shahbaz Nadeem.
During the auction, SRH made some valuable addition to their squad by bringing in Wriddhiman Saha, Johnny Bairstow and Martin Guptill.
Their squad is looking perfect on paper. Last season their batting was a bit weak but the return of David Warner will surely strengthen their batting. Kane Williamson was the top scorer of last season so they'll expect him to perform in this season as well. While Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda will be their other main batsmen.
The Sunrisers possess arguably the best bowling attack of tournament. They have reliable fast bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Billy Stanlake, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Basil Thampi and Khaleel Ahmed. Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan will be key for them in the spin department. The addition of Shahbaz Nadeem will make their spin department even more strong.
Basil Thampi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Hooda, Manish Pandey, T Natarajan, Ricky Bhui, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Khaleel Ahmed, Yusuf Pathan, Billy Stanlake, David Warner, Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Shakib Al Hasan, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Martin Guptill
