Sunrisers Hyderabad has done it brilliantly well in the auction they have grabbed some very good players and few absolute steals like Shakib Al Hasan for ‘2 CR’ is a great buy he is an Versatile Cricketer he can fit in at any slot in batting order and provides you valuable overs as well. The most talkative pick in this Sunrisers squad is Manish Pandey bought for whooping ’11 CR’ which is Eleven times of his actual base price.
Well if you think of Sunrisers the first thing that comes to mind is Bowlers and then the skipper David Warner majestic knocks over the years which single-handedly won many games for them, If Shikhar and Warner hasn’t Contributed with the bat One can’t see SRH putting up a good total on the board though there are some valuable cameo’s from B Cutting and Henriques but SRH always lacking an Indian middle order player, So they desperately need a player who can stand up and play till the 20th Over and experienced as well. Manish is an excellent choice for it though seems little over priced but SRH having all bases covered made them go for Manish for Whooping Bid.
With the likes of Saha, Williamson, Y Pathan and Manish SRH middle order looking more reliable than ever and the Finishers like C Brathwaite and Deepak Hooda will surely add the right blend of mixture to this Squad. SRH is always has been a team of bowlers and they stood up to their reputation and brought very good bowlers this time too having Bhuvi retained. They bought B Thampi, S Sharma, S Kaul, T Natrajan and C Jordan. S Sharma is a very good swing bowler and can be the one who is going to share a new ball with Bhuvi. Having Bowlers Like Thampi, Kaul and Jordan will also provide good death bowling. Though all pacers won’t be making into the Playing XI but they are a useful Commodity to this team. In Spin department they have in form and Exciting talent Rashid khan, Nabi and Shakib SRH has a Good Spin attack but if they have one Indian good Spinner would have been a very much Complete Side. But having Foreign Spinners like Nabi and Shakib can do the job and Hooda giving two overs it’s very well packed Side.
