The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has been one of the top teams of Indian Premier League (IPL) in the last few years. After winning the 2016 edition, they continued to impress in the next two seasons as well, qualifying for the playoffs on both the occasions. Last year, they were so close but lost the race to Chennai Super Kings in the finals.
The Sun Network owned franchise is more known for its dominating bowling attack but they have equally balanced batting line-up as well. Currently led by Kane Williamson, SRH released eight players while retaining the rest of the squad ahead of the IPL 2019. They now have the purse of 9.50 crores and can buy three Indian and two overseas players in the auction which is going to be held at Jaipur on December 18.
The way their squad looks right now, it seems that they would mostly prefer local players having the certain overseas players who will more often than not play almost every match.
Here we bring you the three players SRH should go with in the auction:
1. Manoj Tiwary
Bengal skipper, Tiwary comes under a bunch of Indian cricketers who had a promising start and even played some international cricket but perhaps, disappeared soon. The 33-year-old after making his international debut way back in 2008 has appeared in mere 8 ODI and 3 T20I matches. In the IPL, he has played for multiple franchises and did well for the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant.
Tiwary could be that player for the SRH who comes and tonks the ball from the word go much like Yusuf Pathan does. He bats deep and could be very handy in the middle-order. Hyderabad has an attacking batting set-up at the top and they need someone who can stick around in the middle. Tiwary could well help them with that, so they might invest in him in the forthcoming auction.
