In the mini-auction for IPL 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad extended their purse and got some big names. They had released players such as Kane Williamson and Nicholas Pooran and were looking for fresh talent to improve their performance in the upcoming season. Sunrisers Hyderabad is owned by Kalanithi Maran of the SUN Group and was founded in 2012 after the Hyderabad-based Deccan Chargers were terminated by the IPL.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Performance In IPL 2022:
Sunrisers Hyderabad did not have a great season last year and they finished in eighth position in the points table. They managed to win 6 matches out of 14.
Strength Of SRH
For the upcoming season, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team appears to have a well-balanced squad. They have added Mayank Agarwal to their squad who brings stability to the top of the batting order. With 113 IPL games under his belt, Agarwal’s experience will prove to be a valuable asset for the team. Rahul Tripathi had an outstanding performance in the last IPL scoring 413 runs at an average of 37.55 and a strike rate of 158.24.
Harry Brook, who was the most expensive buy for SRH this season will add an extra dimension to their options. With his impressive batting skills, Harry Brook can win the matches for SRH on his back alone.
Aiden Markram is also in solid form and recently under his captaincy Sunrisers Eastern Cape won the inaugural edition of the South Africa T20 league.
In bowling, Umran Malik and Bhuvneshwar Kumare are other cards SRH will heavily rely on.
Weakness Of SRH
Sunrisers Hyderabad is coming up with a new and fresh team that too with a new captain. It will be important for them to make a great combination of players to form their perfect playing XI. SRH also does not have any experienced Indian batters in their list apart from Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi. It means they would definitely look to have overseas batters which will eventually hamper their bowling attack.
Harry Brook is indeed an exciting buy for SRH, but players like Brook and Glenn Philips do not have enough experience to play on Indian pitches, especially against spin.
The X-factor of SRH For IPL 2023:
Among all the important names, Umran Malik pops up first when someone is looking for an X-factor in SRH. Abdul Samad and Abhishek Sharma are other players who have the ability to make it big both with the bat and ball. It will be also interesting to see how Washington Sundar performs after coming back from the injury.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Final Squad:
Abdul Samad, Umran Malik, Washington Sundar, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Kartik Tyagi, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Aiden Markram, Marco Jansen, Glenn Phillips, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Heinrich Klaasen, Adil Rashid, Mayank Markande, Vivrant Sharma, Samarth Vyas, Sanvir Singh, Upendra Singh Yadav, Mayank Dagar, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Akeal Hosein, Anmolpreet Singh
