With just two spots available, who all should Sunrisers Hyderabad sign in the auction?

...
Sunrisers Hyderabad, who had a fantastic IPL auction in 2018, have geared up for the 2019 IPL auction in the best possible manner as they released the players who they feel are surplus in their squad. By releasing them, they will look to address their issues.​

First and foremost, SRH will be happy to welcome their captain David Warner, who was banned from taking part in the 2018 IPL due to his involvement in the ball-tampering saga that hit the Australian cricket earlier this year. They also traded off their star batsman Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Daredevils and got the services of Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem in return. ​

Going into the auction, Sunrisers have retained 17 players and go into the auction with a purse of 9.7 crore for a maximum of five players including two overseas professionals.​

Areas Sunrisers need to address:

Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to buy an Indian middle-order batsman as they have a fragile middle-order in spite of having the likes of Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan etc.By releasing Wriddhiman Saha, they will also look for a wicketkeeper-batsman who can bat in the middle-order. It won't be a surprise if they buy back Saha for a cheaper price in the auction. ​

Retained: 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, Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem.​

Released: Sachin Baby, Tanmay Agarwal, Wriddhiman Saha, Chris Jordan, Carlos Brathwaite, Alex Hales, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Shikhar Dhawan.
