The Sunrisers Hyderabad are relatively new to the IPL but already they have made their mark. In 2016 they won their first title, just four seasons after they began as a franchise. Last season they were unable to follow up and win back to back titles, but they still managed to reach the playoffs. They know what it takes to win in the IPL and will be looking for their second victory now they have tasted success. IPL Hyderabad team 2018 is placed below.
The Sunrisers kept two players for the upcoming 2018 season, David Warner and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, which gives them a great platform to build upon.

Both Warner and Kumar need little introduction, both have vast cricket experience in all forms of the game and they are going to provide the Sunrisers with a great platform to build upon once again. David Warner will open the batting and if he gets going then the opposition need to watch out. He can hit the ball a long way and we have seen some memorable hits from him in the past. With him at the top of the order the Sunrisers have both quality and experience, and that should allow them to get off to a good start in the majority of their matches.

Kumar is a great bowler who has many different variations to fool the batsmen with. He is a genuine number one strike bowler and will take a lot of wickets when the competition gets underway. Kumar has vast experience in the IPL and he knows how the pitches perform in India, he should have a great tournament in 2018.
The Sunrisers took their squad up to 25 at the auction, adding a good mix of bowling and batting that should make them very competitive. With Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson and Yusuf Pathan joining David Warner, the Sunrisers have a very good top order, with a great mix of explosive hitting, and players who can bat for a full innings. If these get going, then the opposition needs to watch out, because there will be some huge sixes and big scores coming against them.
They have plenty of batting down in the order too, with Shakib Al-Hasan and Carlos Brathwaite waiting to come in and score runs in the final few overs of a game. All over, their batting looks strong and is backed up by a decent bowling attack, although one that lacks a star to bowl alongside Kumar.

The Sunrisers have finished off their squad nicely, and look extremely strong in the batting department. They have plenty of finishers on their team at the death too, so expect plenty of exciting innings played by their batsmen. Their bowling looks a little weak behind Kumar and he will be expected to take a lot of wickets for them. He will do though, and if someone else can stand out from the crowd, they have a chance of challenging for silverware this season. IPL SRH squad 2018 is placed below.
