Sunrisers Hyderabad played their 1st IPL in 2012 when Deccan Chargers were terminated.
On Paper SRH is not such a strong side but is good balanced side.
Sunrisers Hyderabad won IPL in 2016 and in 2018 they were runner-ups.In 2017,SRH was in play-offs.
SRH is too reliant on their foreign batsmans and have David Warner,Jonny Bairstow and Williamson.
SRH’s strength basically is bowling.They do not have World’s best bowlers but still wins many games from bowling.
They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar,Rashid Khan,Siddarth Kaul and Khaleel Ahmed as their top bowlers.
In 2020 Auction SRH bought new faces Mitchell Marsh,Fabian Allen and Abdul Samad which makes their bench strong.
So,here is what should be SRH’s Best Playing XI:-
David Warner will be their Captain and their frontline Batsman in this IPL.Warner is three times Orange Cap Winner.
Warner is the most consistent batsman in history of IPL. Warner is their key batsman and has scored over 3500 runs for SRH at an average of 50 and strike rate of 140+.
SRH won IPL in 2016 under the Captaincy of David Warner.
Last year,pair of Jonny and Warner was unstoppable.Their pair not at all allowed middle-order to play.
In first three innings,there were three hundred partnerships between them and both used to attack and dominate bowlers.
Bairstow scored hundred in his second ever IPL Game. Bairstow scored 445 runs in 10 innings at an average of 55.62 and strike rate of 157.
Kane Williamson is one of the smartest batsman in Sunrisers side.Kane’s job is to play till and understands the game very well.

Williamson has always stood up whenever Warner is not there whether as Captain or player.
Last year,when their main batsmans left the tournament,he was the man who handled the team.
Manish Pandey scored brilliant knocks in last 3-4 innings.Manish is best Indian Batsman in Sunrisers side.
This IPL will be very crucial for Manish Pandey if he wants to be a permanent in team India’s squad.
Last year,Vijay Shankar played for India in ICC World Cup 2019.Since that his name is nowhere.
He played finisher’s role for Sunrisers Hyderabad last year. He is also a medium fast bowler who can bowl 2-3 overs.
Talented star Abhishek Sharma has not yet proved his worth for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

We all know his knock he played in his debut for Delhi Daredevils.Sunrisers Hyderabad will be expecting that from Abhishek Sharma.
Abhishek is also a spin arm bowler.
In his place they can also go with Jammu and Kashmir all-rounder Abdul Samad.
Rashid Khan is SRH’s strongest player.He is the real game changer for them.He is a proper match winner for them.
Khan is always wicket-taker for SRH and doesn’t allows batsmans to go after him.
Rashid Khan is valuable with the bat and is good fielder.SRH can’t rely on Abhishek and Vijay as their bowlers so Rashid need to bat up.He can be a finisher as well for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is opening bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad.He is very economical with the ball and doesn’t give batsman a chance to attack.

Khaleel impressed everyone with his performance.
He needs to repeat his previous year heroics if he wants SRH should go for him next year as well.
Sunrisers Hyderabad used him as a death bowler.In IPL 2018,he was brilliant in death overs.With his performance for SRH,he got picked in the Indian squad and played 2-3 games.
Sandeep Sharma is also opener bowler.Sandeep is a good swing bowler and irritates the Batsman in the start.
