Sunrisers Hyderabad Squad: Players to Watchout

#1. David Warner

Since his return to top level cricket in 2019, David Warner has been simply sublime. He scored 548 runs last year including four half centuries throughout the season. The groin injury that he suffered in the ODI series against India towards the end of 2020 has not been fully dealt with and might come back to haunt him in the Indian summer.

#2. Rashid Khan

Afghanistan’s ace cricketer, Rashid Khan, has been a vital cog in the wheel for SRH with the ball just like skipper Warner is with the bat. SRH’s prime forte has been their bowling for quite a few years now and Rashid has been the leader of the pack with the ball. Not to forget his occasional lower middle order contributions, he is one of the most important players for the Hyderabad-based franchise.

#3. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvneshwar Kumar could not play the entire IPL 2020 season due to his hamstring issue but has now returned to full fitness just before the 14th edition of the IPL begins. He’s back in form in India colours as the lead bowler and will like to continue the same in Orange.

#4. Jonny Bairstow

Jonny Bairstow is one of the most dynamic and bombastic batsmen in world cricket at the moment. The English wicket-keeper batsman is reputed for his skills behind the stumps as well as striking the ball clean and out of the park. His partnerships with David Warner for the past two years were the highlights of SRH's campaign.

#5. Kane Williamson

The Kiwi skipper, Kane Williamson, is an important pillar of the team. He had proven the worth of his salt when he was the captain and this time seems to be taking on a more challenging role as the supporting batsman to Warner and Bairstow. This might lead to inhibition free rendition of the New Zealand star batsman.
