Bhuveneshwar Kumar- Sunrisers ‘biggest match winner, Kumar has evolved as one of the best bowlers in IPL. He picks wickets with the new ball and chokes runs in death overs. Few regard him as one of the best death over bowlers in the world right now.
Shikhar Dhawan– The Southpaw has remained a reliable opener for SRH for some seasons now. He has also been effective in bringing his experience to the table.
