The batting department is filled with required power in the form of Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa. Dinesh Karthik has always been their best player in the ranks. The young Gill also found his touch while Nitish Rana can deliver the goods as well.

In bowling, they picked Lockie Ferguson while Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine will look after spin section. The flamboyant Andre Russell will their go-to player during crunch situations.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has got the flexibility to their side:

Perhaps, Sunrisers is the only franchise, who can try various combinations in the tournament. The presence of all-rounders will give a lot of flexibility to the side. In between, the return of David Warner is a great boost as well.

With Jonny Bairstow, Martin Guptill in the side, they can try out different combinations by including the Indian bowlers. Shakib Al Hasan also fit to play for the team, which would be a great thing for SRH.
