IPL Records: 5 Records held by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the tournament's history
Sunrisers Hyderabad is one of the dominant teams in the IPL. Since their first IPL season in 2013, they have been a consistent side. Except for 2014 and 2015, when they finished sixth in the points table, they have always qualified for the playoffs.
In 2013, they reached the playoffs under the captaincy of Kumar Sangakkara. In 2016, they won their first title under David Warner.
In 2017, they finished in the fourth place and last season they finished as runners-up under the leadership of Kane Williamson, who led the team exceptionally well in the absence of first-choice skipper Warner.
Primarily known for their excellent bowling attack, the Sunrisers have quite a few records to their name.
In this article, we will have a look at five unique records held by Sunrisers Hyderabad and their players in the Indian Premier League.
