Sunrisers Hyderabad endured their worst ever season last year. They finished at the bottom of the table. It wasn’t just the wooden finish that hurt but the way the squad played that stuck out. They looked listless right throughout the tournament. Here are 5 Players SRH Should Target In The Auctions
SRH have faltered further failing to retain Rashid Khan and David Warner. They need to make several right chances in the auction to arrest the slide.
We look at 5 Players SRH Should Target In The Auctions
#5 Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins is Australia’s newly appointed Test captain. He was always someone who was revered in the team. Cummins possesses a cool ahead. It helps him stay in the game throughout. Many IPL teams will want a player like him in their squad. He is a handy lower-order batsman too. SRH have always lacked a specialist overseas pacer. Cummins might just be that perfect fit.
#4 Dinesh Karthik
SRH for have long struggled to have a solid finisher in their ranks. It has always put a lot of pressure on their top-order. At times the openers have been forced to play well within themselves. SRH will be keen to fix this issue in the upcoming mega auctions. Dinesh Karthik has played the role of a finisher with aplomb for both KKR and India. SRH will benefit from picking up a player like Karthik.
#3 Marcus Stoinis
SRH were expecting a lot from a player like Mitchell Marsh whom they had picked in 2020. But Marsh limped out from the tournament in the very first game. Right since SRH have lacked a seam-bowling allrounder. A player like Stoinis might more than just make up for that vacuum. He is a gun player in this format. SRH will do well to pick a player like Stoinis in the auction.
#2 Ishan Kishan
The one area where SRH have struggled perennially is having a quality Indian batsman in the ranks. Players like Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, and Vijay Shankar have failed to carry the team ahead.
SRH badly need a player who can bat across different phases of the game and explore the field 360 degrees. Ishan Kishan perfectly fits the bill. He will empower SRH’s Indian batters to play fearlessly. SRH must surely target this pocket-sized dynamite.
#1 Wanindu Hasaranga
He is one of the best bowlers in the T20I format. Hasaranga is a proven match-winner in these conditions. He is a handy batsman too. Hasaranga is someone who is always up for a fight. He is Sri Lanka’s best player in the format.
Hasaranga showed his mental acumen and skill in the India series. His confidence is contagious. Hasaranga is one player who can naturally fill in for Rashid Khan who has left the orange shores. SRH will be a dynamic unit if they pick up a player of Hasaranga’s calibre.
