SRH Team Preview: Captained By David Warner, Sunrisers are seen as one of the main contestant for IPL 2020 trophy. A well-managed team which has a great combination of both batsmen and bowlers as well as all-rounders, SRH is the favourite team to look out of many fans.
Trevos Bayliss is the head coech for Hyderabad team this season. Whereas Sri Lankan legend Muralitharan is bowling coach. Under Warner’s captaincy, the team won IPL in 2016. When they play against against the same opposition that they had beaten in 2016 IPL final, they would think about trophy yet this season too.

SRH Team Preview: Analysis
Champions of 2016, SRH would like to replicate the same kind of performance this season. They do have the team strength to do better in all departments. The best strength of this team is Batting and Spin bowling.
Having batsman like Warner and Willamson and spinners like Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, the team looks rock solid. The pace bowling is not weak either with likes of Bhuvneswor Kumar in the team.
SRH Team Preview: Bowling Preview:
Spin bowling has been the major strength for the Hyderabad team over the years. Afghan duo Nabi and Rashid Khan have been phenomenol since their addition in SRH squad. Although overseas players quota is only 4, especially Nabi has proved his worth to the team.
Rashid Khan is not only key bowler for the team, but he could also be pinch hitter at end of the innings, an exceptional fielder. The 21 year’s old is invaluable for SRH one way or the other. Indian spinner Shahbaz Nadeem could also be crucial for SRH team.
Pace bowling department lead by Bhuvneswor Kumar is not bad either. Having both Indian and Foreign backup with the likes of Khaleel Ahmed, Billy Stanlake and Tamil Nadu player Natarajan.
SRH Team Preview: Batting Preview:
It’s going to be very tough job for SRH in the sense that which batsman to choose and who to left out. Both Indian and Foreign Batsman are looking solid and SRH would hope to score 200+ in almost every match played in UAE pitches.
Lead by David Warner in the opening, Jonny Bairstow looks an ideal option as a opening partner. The duo is followed by Kiwi captain Kane Williamson who is also counted as one of the greatest modern day batsman.
However, apart from Manish Pandey there seems to be lack of proper backup of Indian Top order Batsman. Youngster Priyam Garg could prove his worth this season if he gets chance. In middle order there are plenty of options too. Indian All rounder Vijay Shanker could be crucial this season.
Mitchell Marsh, another Aussie player could also be option for SRH in middle order. Mohammad Nabi is a proper batsman as well but the main question is how the SRH would choose their ideal playing eleven.
Saha and Rashid Khan could well deliver too in lower middle order. Everything would be clear when we see first game of Sunrisers in September 21.
