Bhuvi was retained by the SRH franchise before the auctions in January, along with Shikhar Dhawan and former captain David Warner.

Due to the recent incidents in South Africa, David Warner was banned from playing cricket by Cricket Australia, along with Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith, who was also retained by Royal’s think tank.
