Sunrisers Hyderabad has been one of the most consistent teams in the IPL in the last few years.
After winning the IPL title in 2016, they made their way to the IPL final again in 2018. They eventually couldn’t win the tournament in 2018, but they were consistent right through the tournament and even the last year, the men in orange made it to the IPL playoffs.
The reason behind the consistent success of the Sunrisers Hyderabad is the fact that they are an all-round team. While they have got a very strong bowling attack, they have enough batting capability in the squad as well.
Here are the 3 Sunrisers batsmen you should pick if you are looking to assemble a fantasy XI for a game involving SRH –
#1 David Warner:
David Warner missed IPL 2018 due to suspension, but on his comeback in IPL 2019, the Aussie opener finished as the highest run-scorer of the tournament and he didn’t even play all the games for SRH.
Warner played just 12 games for SRH in IPL 2019 and returned to national duty. But, he had already piled close to 700 runs in 12 games and nobody could get past his runs’ tally till the end of the tournament.
Warner is always a good fantasy pick in SRH games because of his consistency. He is one of the only two overseas batsmen so far whose IPL average is more than 40.
#2 Kane Williamson:
Kane Williamson didn’t play regularly for Sunrisers Hyderabad last season because of injury issues, but in IPL 2018, he had played all the games and the Kiwi skipper had ended up with the orange cap as he had scored 735 runs in 17 games at an average of 52.50.
Williamson is another player who has this ability to bat long and because of the fact that he mostly plays risk-free cricket, he is a heavy run-scorer even in the shortest format of the game.
If Williamson is in your fantasy XI, he is likely to earn you a lot of points.
#3 Manish Pandey
Manish Pandey will probably bat at no. 4 for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the upcoming season and that’s an ideal batting slot for him because he is a wonderful player of spin and can really take on the spinners in the middle overs.
The good thing about Manish is that he is a floater and can be used at various positions in the batting order. The 30-year old right-hander was the third-highest run-scorer for the Sunrisers last season as he scored 344 runs in 12 games at an average of 43.
