SRH Team Squad 2017
Hyderabad IPL team players names is placed here. The 2016 champions of the Indian Premier League were Sunrisers Hyderabad, who achieved this feat on the back of a strong squad and a lot of confidence in themselves. It is definitely a no surprise to see that four players from the team found their names in most runs and most wickets statistics. Let us take a look at the names which made the tournament a grand success for the franchise.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Players Released Ahead of IPL 10: Aditya Tare, Eoin Morgan, Ashish Reddy, T Suman, Trent Boult, Karn Sharma
The list of Sunrisers Hyderabad retained players by the team is placed below. David Warner was given the task of leading the men, who did so with great panache and elegance. He was in fact one of the most consistent batsmen in the tournament, which led to become the second highest run scorer last season. He scored a total of 848 runs in his 17 innings, with his best score being 93. However, it wasn’t only him who made this feat possible.
Shikhar Dhawan proved his worth to the team by blasting 501 runs in his journey to the trophy. Yuvraj Singh is another batsman who did a good job. He returned from the injury during the mid season, and scored 236 runs in 10 innings.
Their teams prowess in the format is reflected in both – their batting and their bowling. Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned out to be the most impressive bowler in the entire tournament, having taken 23 wickets in 17 matches. His best bowling figure is 4/29, which came against Gujarat Lions. They also had the Bangladeshi bowler Mustafizur Rahman, who took 17 wickets during his time in the league.
There have also been other players such as Barinder Sran and Moises Henriques, who took 14 and 12 wickets respectively.
One thing which can be said of the Sunrisers Hyderabad is that they didn’t lose their rhythm. Having made it to the last stage, they lost their last two group matches, which made it a must win situation for them in the playoffs. Towards the end of the league stage, their form appeared to be dwindling a bit as they had lost their last two matches and missed out on the first qualifier. They entered the eliminator as the underdogs, with Kolkata Knight Riders their opponents. They moved on to defeat them by 22 runs, owing to superb spells by Kumar and Moises Henriques. They next faced Gujarat Lions, where they had to score 162 to win. When they came to bat, everyone else succumbed to pressure except Warner, and his 93 off 58 deliveries got his side the ticket to final.
Against Bangalore, they managed to set 208 runs on the board, and at one point, it appeared that they may lose the match. But after getting quick wickets of the hosts, Cutting brought his team back in the game and they won by eight runs. To keep calm under such an intense pressure is something which only the champions can do, and the lads from Hyderabad have proven just that. They also became the first team to win the league after finishing the league outside of top two.
With title now their’s to defend next season, we cannot wait to see what changes they might make to their already strong squad. But one thing is for certain – they will give everyone else a run for their money. IPL 2017 srh squad is placed below.
