The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), earlier known as Deccan Chargers, is a franchise cricket team competing in the Indian Premier League. The franchise was founded after the Deccan Chargers were terminated by the IPL in 2012. The SRH played their first IPL in 2013 and have been a vital part of the IPL since then. The Sunrisers Hyderabad are a strong team and have achieved many milestones in these few years.
Owner of Sunrisers Hyderabad
The franchise is owned by Kalanithi Maran of the Sun TV Network, which is one of India’s biggest television networks.
Team Captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad
The team is currently captained by Kane Williamson as well as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, just to get the balance right.
Team Coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad
Tom Moody is their coach.
Home Ground of Sunrisers Hyderabad
The primary home ground of the Sunrisers Hyderabad is the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, with the capacity of a whopping 55,000.
The Sunrisers made their first appearance in 2013 and qualified for the playoffs instantly. Kumar Sangakkara and Cameron White captained the side then. Their mega moment came in 2016, where the Sunrisers, led by David Warner, defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final of the IPL, resulting in their maiden IPL title win. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the first player from the SRH to win the Purple Cap.
Sunrisers Hyderabad continued their good form in the 2017 IPL tournament where they qualified for the playoffs once again, only to be defeated by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar wreaked havoc with the ball once again as he was able to retain the Purple Cap, while their skipper David Warner won the Orange Cap.
New Zealand player Kane Williamson led from the front in David Warner’s absence and won the Orange Cap as well, as he guided the SRH to the finals against Chennai Super Kings. But the Sunrisers were outplayed by the CSK, and they finished as runners-up in the 2018 IPL season.
Ahead of the 2019 IPL auction, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) traded Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Capitals in favor of Shahbaz Nadeem, Vijay Shankar, and Abhishek Sharma. Hyderabad bought big players like Johnny Bairstow and Martin Guptill. The return of David Warner is set to bolster the batting of the SRH, as they would like to go one step further than they did in the IPL 2018 and win the coveted trophy for the second time after replacing the Deccan Chargers and the third time overall.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is one of the strongest teams in the IPL and has got the right balance with David Warner and Johnny Bairstow as openers. Their middle-order should consist of players like Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, and Yusuf Pathan. SRH have the strongest bowling line-up with the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Sandeep Sharma, and Mohammed Nabi. They will back themselves to win the IPL again.
