Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL Team 2017
IPL 2017 Sunrisers Hyderabad team squad
Hyderabad IPL team 2017 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. IPL Hyderabad team 2017 is placed below.
David Warner once again is given the task of leading the men, who did so with great panache and elegance last year. 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.
It would be unfair to just keep the captain in the limelight as the team that he led had everyone chipping in at crucial instances. Their teams prowess in the format is reflected in both – their batting and their bowling. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Ben Cutting, Mustafizur Rahman & Moises Henriques all contributed at crucial junctures. There were stages where they got setbacks and more towards the playoffs as they lost a couple of matches last season. But they got their act together and they went on to become the crowned champions of 2016.
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.
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. Barinder Sran and Moises Henriques 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 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.
As far as acquisitions go for the team, Pravin Tambe, Chris Jordan, Mohammed Nabi, Rashid Khan have joined the team to bolster the bowling attack. While the team is more balanced than it was last year and with a stable tenure of the teammates, it’s only certain that their performance would improve day and night. The viewers would hope to see similar performances in the upcoming edition of the league as well.
While the team is a young unit, the biggest positive is the intent and the aggression that comes with it. Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Mustafizur and most of the lads are in their mid 20’s and they are bound to get better and better with each passing game and that will help the Sunrisers to stand in good stead. With title now their’s to defend next season, one thing is for certain – they will give everyone else a run for their money. IPL SRH squad 2017 is placed below.
