Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has been one of the most consistent performers of the Indian Premier League right since its inception in the fray. However, with time, their depth has slimmed down by leaps and bounds, most likely due to poor selection in the auctions.
Things don’t look forward to changing either with a batting side that isn’t much deep and heavily reliable on the top three and they will have to do more than something extraordinary with a bowling lineup which has a glittering side to it in the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and some mediocrity attached to it too. We will look at the two strongest and weakest players of the side for the imminent IPL where the Orange Army will kickstart their campaign against RCB on the 21st of September.
David Warner and Jonny Bairstow
Warner is one of the most successful batsmen of the Indian Premier League and also the athlete with the highest number of Orange Caps in the tournament. He is a relentless hitter of the ball and can impose a lethal punishment on the bowlers trying to make their headways against his airtight defense. His strokes are absolutely top-notch and his opportune bursts of excellence will be one of the few slivers of hopes that Hyderabad will be banking upon.
Bairstow is in the form of his life as he has been belting out masterclasses one after the other against West Indies, Pakistan, and Australia. This form is most likely to reflect in the upcoming IPL that will set his batting soul free, where the English hard-hitter can absolutely destroy the opponents in the flash of an eye.
Virat Singh and Priyam Garg
These two are youngsters and have been roped in by Sunrisers Hyderabad in an attempt to harness the future. However, it will need a lot more than just excellent spirit and indomitable talent in the glamorous ranks of IPL.
Still untested in the league of elites, it will need a lot more grit and character for these two to substantiate their mettle. Despite they possess a wide arsenal of strokes up their sleeves, when they face the heat of the best of the world, their character will be out to the test.
