Here is our Team Preview of one of the best contenders of IPL 2020 Sunrisers Hyderabad who made their team debut in 2013 and has been performing consistenly against the strong team like CSK, MI by proving themselves as Champions in 2016 and made their play-off chances in the year 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019 which also includes final in 2018. The Team management retained David Warner in 2018 and he proved them by scoring a minimum of 400 runs in every edition of IPL. He will be leading the team in IPL 2020.
STRONG ZONES OF SRH:
Sunrisers Hyderabad has a very strong contendar of overseas players with the huge names like David Warner, Rashid Khan and it makes a healthy competition between themselves such as choosing the four overseas slots in the Team. Kane Williamson may find it hard to get into the starting XI, with Warner and Bairstow open the batting for SRH . Manish Pandey down the order will have huge responsibiilities in his hand as he has to stand and finish the matches if the top order fails to perform on a particular day. On getting into the bowling side , they have two Afghanistan top quality spinners with the name Rashid Khan & Nabi their attack will be very useful in UAE condition also they have the capability of batting as well.
Weak Zones of SRH:
Sunrisers may have a lot of bowling options but they are completely dependent on their spin bowlers, on seeing the other side bowling with Bhuvanesh Kumar leading the pace attack there is no proper strike bowler for them as Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is also struggling with his poor form . Also they will lose games if they try to defend the low target , since they don’t have an option for proper death bowling in their XI . Khaleel , Sandeep Sharma have huge responsibilities on their shoulders to prove themselves in IPL 2020.
PROBABLE XI for SRH:
David Warner(c), Johny Bairstrow, Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar , Mohammad Nabi , Rashid Khan , Shabaz Nadeem, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed.
Players to Watch out For :
Manish Pandey down the order will be playing dual roles( Floater & Hitter) for his Team depending on the top order performance . If he performs well in the middle Sunrisers have a higher chance of winning games in IPL 2020.
