Sunrisers Hyderabad had a pretty decent campaign in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League. They had mixed spells at the start of the season. However, as the games progressed, they started making a statement in the form of wins.
David Warner’s team qualified for the playoffs with a better Net Run Rate (+0.608) as compared to Royal Challengers Bangalore (-0-172) and Kolkata Knight Riders (-0.214). As a result, they finished third in the points table while RCB and KKR finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Sunrisers locked horns with RCB in the Eliminator where Warner’s team got the better of Kohli & Co. Delhi Capitals put an end to Sunrisers’ journey by eliminating them in the second qualifier. However, they will be looking forward to a great season this time around.
Ahead of the auction, they released as many as 5 players namely Sanjay Yadav, B Sandeep, Billy Stanlake, Fabian Allen, Yarra Prithviraj. Sunrisers came into the auction with only 3 available slots with just one for an overseas player.
