The hottest trend in T20 leagues across the world is the dominance of bowling heavy teams. And this is what Sunrisers Hyderbad do in IPL.
They have carefully picked their bowlers and the result is that they feature one of the strongest bowling units in IPL. That doesn’t mean they lack in the batting department. With Williamson, Warner and Yusuf they do have a scintillating batting force. And hence they are a strong favorites for winning the title in IPL 2019.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Strengths
Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohamad Nabi, Shakib, Siddarth Kaul and Khaleel Ahmed. These bowlers can win you games on most days and assembling them together only amplifies their threat.
In spin department they can pick from Shakib, Rashid, Nabi and Nadeem and mind you the first three of them can bat and in pace bowling department they can pick from Bhuvi, Stanlake, Kaul, Khaleel and Basil Thampi.
This wide pool of resources makes SRH a force to reckon with and the same can be said about their batting might.
Warner and Williamson will walk into any team while Guptill and Baristow are hard to keep out. Then there is Shankar, Pandey, Hooda, Yusuf and Saha in the middle order to deliver the final punches.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Weaknesses
On paper there are hardly any weaknesses as they have covered almost all their bases.
The question will arise when some of their key players will move away to prepare for the World Cup. There are Indian players in the squad who can replace them but will that be enough?
Sunrisers Hyderabad: IPL 2019 Prediction
The team of SRH will easily end in the top four unless they make a major goof up. They have the big players for the knock outs. So, they are undoubtedly one of the chief contenders for the IPL 2019 title.
