Sunrisers Hyderabad is one of the most consistent sides in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Ever since their emergence in 2013, SRH has made it to the playoffs at almost all the occasions.
The David Warner-led side looks one of the most balanced teams ahead of the 13th edition of the tournament as well. With a tremendous bowling attack and power-hitting top-order batsmen, the Hyderabad-based franchise is a possible contender to make it to the final four. Here are the top 5 Sunrisers Hyderabad players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
1. David Warner
David Warner led the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016, which is the same year when they lifted the trophy. This year too, the Aussie will take charge for them. Warner’s consistency in terms of batting is also second to none.
2. Jonny Bairstow
Just like last year, Jonny Bairstow will continue to open the batting for SRH. Bairstow is one of the finest white-ball opening batsmen in the current lot, and it would be interesting for the fans to see how he performs at the UAE pitches.
3. Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan’s bowling is always something to watch out for, irrespective of the opposition and pitch conditions. The Afghan has played for the Sunrisers from his first match in this multi-franchise league and is an integral part of their side.
4. Mohammad Nabi
Mohammad Nabi shone like gold in this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) during his stint at the St Lucia Zouks. The 35-year old is one of the best Afghan cricketers of all-time and will be looking forward to replicating his performance in IPL as well.
5. Manish Pandey
Manish Pandey is one of the most underrated white-ball batsmen in the current Indian team. He has performed well whenever given responsibility and has the capability to finish off the games for his side as well. In this IPL season, the Karnataka-born has a lot to prove to the selectors.
