IPL 2020- Sun Risers Hyderabad

Who would have thought that we will be seeing our favorite cricket stars on the ground battling against each other, Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic from March we haven’t seen any cricketing action taking place but gradually we are seeing the cricket making come back recently with West Indies and Pakistan touring to England. Taking some inspiration of Bio-Bubble environment from England, BCCI is now all set to host IPL-2020 in UAE.

With just 10 days left to the start of IPL we bring you our own take on each IPL team. We’ve tried to be as unbiased, neutral as possible and this is purely our opinion and yours could vary. Please feel free to comment your take below and express your opinion. We will start with our very own home team Sun Risers Hyderabad.

SRH is one of the successful team in the IPL; it has won the IPL trophy in the year 2016 and reached the playoffs in 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019 seasons, let’s just look into the team attributes.

SRH has always been a strong team when it comes to the bowling. With Bhuvi leading bowling department they have abundant resources of pace and spin variety consisting of Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Khaleel Ahmed etc.; and has strong batting line up with Warner, Williamson, Bairstow, Manish.  Although SRH has strong bowling and top order but middle order has always been a concern and on top of that they were never really able to find a proper finisher. In this year IPL 2020, SRH tried to fill those gaps with talented players like Vijay Shankar, Mitchell Marsh, Mohammad Nabi, Abdul Samad, and Abhishek Sharma.

 

Boon to SRH:

Strong and Devastating top order with Warner, Bairstow, Manish and Williamson.
Spin duo with Rashid and Nabi, who can create trouble to opposition in slow turning tracks of UAE.
Young talented Hitter whom we can keep an eye on “Abdul Samad”
Recent batting performance from Rashid can chip in few good overs at death.

 

Bane to SRH:

Heavily dependent on top order batsmen Warner and Bairstow.
Can lose the quality services of All-Rounder’s with Warner, Bairstow, and Williamson included in Playing XI.
Lack of proper finisher down the order.

 

Best Playing XI:

David Warner
Johnny Bairstow
Manish Pandey
Vijay Shankar
Wriddhiman Saha
Abdul Samad
Mohammad Nabi / Mitch Marsh
Rashid Khan
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
Sandeep Sharma / Sid kaul
Khaleel Ahmed/ T. Natrajan

Hope this year’s IPL brings joy and entertainment to all the cricket fans across the globe.
