Sunrisers Hyderabad, SRH News, Records, Standings, Squad & Fixture

Sunrisers Hyderabad-SRH

Sunrisers Hyderabad represents the city of Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise is owned by Kalanithi Maran of the Sun TV channel Network and was founded in 2012 after the Hyderabad-based Deccan Chargers were terminated due to prolonged financial issues.

They debuted in 2013 and made an instant impact by qualifying for the playoffs. They had retained 20 players from the Deccan Chargers squad in addition to buying Thisara Perera, Darren Sammy, Sudeep Tyagi, Nathan McCullum, Quinton de Kock and Clint McKay

Promising start:
Former Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara led the team in its inaugural season, captaining it for 9 Matches before Cameron White captained the team for the remaining 7 matches and the Eliminator match in the Playoffs.

SRH made it to the playoffs after winning 10 of 16 games. Their journey came to an end with a defeat to Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator.

Dismal season:
The promising start in 2014 was followed by a dismal season in 2014.  The Sunrisers retained only two players - Shikhar Dhawan and Darren Sammy - in an attempt to overhaul the squad. Dhawan was handed the captaincy while Sammy was named his deputy. However, the move did not yield good results as the team finished a lowly sixth in the 8-team tournament.

Dhawan led SRH for the first 10 Matches while Sammy led the team for remaining 4 Matches in the League. But the fortunes of the team did not change as they managed to win only 6 of the 14 games and failed to reach the Play-offs.

In 2015, David Warner was appointed the captain but SRH team performance did not improve much. Under Warner's captaincy, they again finished 6th with 7 wins and 7 losses and failed to reach the Play-offs.

Change in fortunes:
After two dismal seasons, the franchise bounced back in style in 2016. With skipper Warner leading from the front, they went on to defy all the odds and won their maiden IPL title. They finished the league stage at third position with 8 wins from 14 games. In the Eliminator, they defeated two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders before getting the better of table-toppers Gujarat Lions in the second Qualifier to make it to the final. In the title-decider, they beat Royal Challengers Bangalore to lift the coveted title.

In 2017, they made it to the playoffs again with Warner leading from the front once again. The left-handed batsman finished the season as the top-scorer, helping his side finish third in the table with 8 wins. Their journey ended with a defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator.

Home ground:
The Sunrisers play their home games at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium which is owned by the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) and has a seating capacity of 65,000.
In 2015, they also played their home games at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

2018 auction:
Sunrisers Hyderabad entered this year's auction with a purse of RS 59 crores and spent Rs 58.35 crore on 23 players to build a solid squad. The 2016 Indian Premier League champions had retained their skipper David Warner and pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar ahead of the auction.

Two-times IPL winner Manish Pandey was their costliest purchase - they secured him for a whopping Rs 11 crore.  In addition, they used the Right To Match card to retain Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, Afghan spinner Rashid Khan and the all-rounder Deepak Hooda. They also bought back New Zealand star Kane Williamson to add more solidarity to their already strong batting lineup. With the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Basil Thampi, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Rashid Khan also in the team, the bowling lineup also looks formidable.

David Warner Felt Hurt After Being Stripped Of SRH Captaincy And Axed Without Fault

David Warner played a key role in helping the Australian side win their maiden T20I World Cup in the 2021 edition. The left-hander emerged as the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament, scoring 289 runs in 7 innings at a superb average of 48.17. David Warner also won the Player of the Tournament award.

And now, David Warner has opened up on being stripped from captaincy and being dropped from the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side in the IPL 2021, and how he put this setback behind him and won the Player of the Tournament award.

David Warner Isn’t Complaining After Being Stripped Of Captaincy And Axe From The Sunrisers Hyderabad Franchise In IPL 2021

The Aussie left-hander stated that he was hurt when he was dropped from the SRH side for no fault of his. Adding that he does not want to complain, the 35-year-old said that the Indian fans have always supported him, and he plays to entertain the fans of the game.

“When you are dropped from the team you have loved the most for years without any real fault of yours and stripped of captaincy without being given a reason, it hurts. At the same time there are no complaints. The fans in India have always been there for me and it is for them that you play. We play to entertain. We play to push for excellence,” said David Warner in a chat.

David Warner also said that even though he did not find a spot in the SRH playing XI, he continued to give his best and put in a lot of hard work in training. The left-hander also added that he was batting extremely well in the nets.

“Whatever may have been the reason for me not finding a spot in an IPL team, I can tell you I was training the hardest I ever did. I didn’t not miss a single day. I was batting extremely well in the nets and it was only a matter of time before it all started to work out,” added Warner.

IPL 2021 has been David Warner’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73. As the IPL 2021 season resumed in UAE, the Aussie opener featured in the first two games for SRH but aggregated just 2 runs.

David Warner has been SRH’s star opener for a number of years, having carried the weight of a fragile middle order single-handedly. He was the Orange Cap winner in 2015, 2017, and 2019, having amassed 4014 runs in 95 games for the franchise at a whopping average of 49.56 and striking at 142.59.

He is still the IPL’s 5th highest scorer, having amassed 5449 runs in 150 games averaging 41.59 with 4 tons and 50 fifties. He has hit the maximum number of the fifties in IPL history. David Warner led SRH to their maiden IPL title in 2016 as they defeated Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final by eight runs.

David Warner Will Try To Keep Working Hard As He Knew There Will Be More Opportunities In-Store

David Warner also said that even though he was hurt, he also knew that there was another opportunity coming his way in the form of the 2021 T20I World Cup. Adding that sport is a great leveller, David Warner concluded by stating that he will continue to work hard and stay true to cricket.

“So yes, while it hurt, I knew I will have another opportunity. Sport is a great leveller and if you are true to the sport and keep working hard, you will always have a second chance. I just wanted to keep working the hardest and stay true. I am glad it worked out for me,” concluded Warner.

“Please keep my father in your prayers. He is suffering from a brain hemorrhage,” Patel had tweeted.

The Indian southpaw was plying his trade with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2019 at the time.  Parthiv Patel had emerged as RCB’s third-highest scorer in the 2019 edition of the IPL. The Indian batsman had amassed 373 runs for the Virat Kohli-led RCB franchise in the IPL 2019.

The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman played 25 Tests, 38 One Day Internationals (ODIs), and 2 T20Is for Team India. Parthiv Patel has scored 934 runs in Tests while he has 736 runs to his name in ODIs. In T20Is, he scored 36 runs. After retiring from cricket, he is currently playing the role of a commentator. He is currently doing commentary in IPL 2021.

A pocket-sized attacking wicket-keeper-batsman, Parthiv Patel entered the international scene in 2002 when, at 17 years and 153 days, he became Test cricket’s youngest wicketkeeper after making his debut at Trent Bridge.

IPL 2021: Pragyan Ojha Reckons Manish Pandey Needs To Take A Break

Pragyan Ojha, former Indian spinner said Manish Pandey has not been delivering as per expectations despite the trust shown in him by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team management in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and a couple of games break can work in his favour.

Speaking to Sports Today, Pragyan Ojha said all-rounder Kedar Jadhav can be a good option for Sunrisers Hyderabad who is lacking experience in the middle-order. SRH slipped to their 3rd straight defeat of the season on Saturday as MI defended 150 in Chennai.

Pragyan Ojha: Manish Pandey Should Take A Break From Next 2 Games

Pragyan Ojha, speaking to Sports Today, pointed out that Manish Pandey might need time to take a backseat and reassess his game to deliver better in IPL 2021 season. Pragyan Ojha’s comments came after Manish Pandey got out early after a good start from David Warner and Jonny Bairstow in SRH’s failed chase of 151 against Mumbai Indians.

Sunrisers Hyderabad slipped to their worst-ever start in an IPL season after losing their first three matches of the new season. Chasing 151 against MI, SRH got off to a solid start with openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow adding 67 runs but the former champions were bundled out for 137.

Pragyan Ojha — File Photo
Pragyan Ojha — File Photo

Manish Pandey, who bats at No. 3 for SRH, began his season with a 44-ball 61 not out but the Karnataka batsman was not able to finish the match in their chase of 188 against Kolkata Knight Riders. Against RCB, his strike rate came under the scanner as he hit 38 off 39 balls as Sunrisers lost by 7 runs while chasing 150 at Chepauk.

“For someone like Manish Pandey, it will be good for him if he gets a couple of games break. At times, it really helps, ” said Pragyan Ojha

Manish Pandey has been a consistent performer for Sunrisers over the years but the senior India batsman has failed to take up responsibility in the middle-order, which lacks experience at the moment. Following Manish Pandey’s exit on Saturday, Sunrisers did not get any momentum going into their innings.

After David Warner was run out in the 12th over, the trio of Virat Singh, Abdul Samad, and Abhishekh Sharma failed to chip in with useful contributions. Vijay Shankar’s 28-ball 26 ended in vain as the all-rounder was not able to take the team past the finish line.

“No. 3, it is a very crucial position. He has to deliver. Match after match, the pressure mounts. People who are watching can make out that Manish Pandey is not delivering. At times, it is important that you take a backseat, take a couple of games break and then think about your game.”

“When you’re playing continuously and you’re not doing well, you might not know what is happening and what is not. You need to take a pause,” Ojha added.

Sunrisers Hyderabad missed the experience of Kane Williamson as the New Zealand captain has not yet completely recovered from an elbow injury. However, David Warner said on Saturday that the senior batsman is close to regaining full fitness. SRH will look to open their account in the new season when they take on Punjab Kings in Chennai on Wednesday.

Pragyan Ojha: Kedhar Jadhav Can Deliver Some Handy Off-Spin And Give Stability In The Batting

Kedar Jadhav had scored only 62 runs in 8 games for Chennai Super Kings at a modest average of 20.66 and a strike rate of 93.93 which is poor by T20 standards and he was released by CSK. Despite playing 87 IPL games, he has an average of only 22.82 and has only 4 fifties. He hasn’t bowled in IPL.

Adding that Sunrisers might benefit if they bring in former Chennai Super Kings player Kedar Jadhav, Ojha said: “You need someone like Kedar Jadhav. If you see that middle-order, it did not carry forward the hard work done by David Warner and Jonny Bairstow.”

“Maybe they can look in for Kedar Jadhav who can deliver because I think they have a few more games in Chennai. He can deliver some handy off-spin and give some stability in the batting,” he added.

In the players’ auction, Hyderabad acquired Kedar Jadhav, Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Jagadeesha Suchith to their ranks. The side had bowed out of IPL 2020 in Qualifier 2 last year after suffering a loss against Delhi Capitals. SRH also wanted to bolster their middle-order and so they bought Kedar Jadhav for INR 2 Crores.

Iyer said, “We had two outings against SRH and I think this is a better outfield to bat against them. Putting on a good total would be a responsibility, and it’s a good surface too. You have to take the positives, and do the homework right and I think we have done that well. Rashid is an amazing bowler who can change the game. We have to be aware of him and play smartly. Pravin Dube and Hetmyer come in. It’s important to keep things simple, and it’s only a matter of executing our plan today.”

On the other hand, SunRisers Hyderabad captain David Warner confirmed that they have maintained their last winning combination.

Warner said, “We would have bowled first, so happy with the toss. You can see a few indentations on the pitch too and hopefully we can take some early wickets in the powerplay. We are supposed to win close games, and that was a kick in the backside to perform and we have performed well since then. Everyone knows their roles in the team. It’s a new wicket, new game, different kind of pressure. We have no changes, Wriddhiman Saha has a hamstring tear, so we’re playing the same team as the last game.”

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) innings

On the fourth ball of that innings, Shreevats Goswami was dismissed by Mohammed Siraj for a duck. In the late moment of the powerplay, Siraj took another wicket as he dismissed another opener and captain David Warner for 17 runs. Though the on-field umpire originally gave not out decision in that caught behind the appeal, the RCB took the review and after monitoring closely along with using the Ultra Edge system, that decision was finally changed in RCB’s favour. However, there was no clear evidence to completely support any decision.

In the ninth over, Adam Zampa dismissed Manish Pandey for 24 runs. Later, in the 12th over, Yuzvendra Chahal took the wicket of Priyam Garg (7). At that stage, SRH were struggling on 67/4.

But Kane Williamson batted superbly which helped their side to fight back. Williamson and Holder put 65 runs partnership for the unbroken fifth wicket and it helped SRH to achieve the success in that chase.
