IPL 2021: Sunrisers Hyderabad Best Projected Playing XI (SRH)
During the IPL auction in 2021, Sunrisers Hyderabad purchased the fewest number of three players. For the IPL 2021 season, the franchisee kept the majority of its top players. Sunrisers Hyderabad won the IPL trophy for the first and only time in their history in 2016. Sunrisers Hyderabad has been a regular team in the IPL since 2016, qualifying for the playoffs in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Sunrisers Hyderabad paid Rs. 2 crore for Kedar Jadhav, Rs. 1.5 crore for Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, and Rs. 30 lakh for Jagadeesha Suchith in the IPL 2020 auction. Sunrisers Hyderabad were excluded from the league in the previous edition after losing a qualifier II match to Delhi Capitals. Sunrisers Hyderabad will try to replicate their consistent success in the IPL 2021 with an eye on the trophy. Here’s a look at the best-predicted Sunrisers Hyderabad XI for the first match of the IPL 2021 season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batting will get off to a good start thanks to Jonny Bairstow. Bairstow played 11 innings in the IPL 2020 last year, scoring 345 runs at a strike rate of 126+. He also had three fiftys. In IPL 2021, the English batsman should be allowed to open the innings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad should be led by David Warner in the IPL in 2021. He has proven to be a valuable asset for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Warner, an Australian batsman, was the third-highest run scorer in IPL 2020, with 548 runs in 16 innings. There were four half-centuries in all. Sunrisers Hyderabad has been a dominant team under David Warner’s captaincy, and he could lead the team again in IPL 2021.
In IPL 2020, Kane Williamson batted in 11 innings, scoring 317 runs at a strike rate of 133+. Following IPL 2020, Williamson has posted some excellent results, earning him the top spot in the ICC Test batsmen rankings and the eighth spot in the ICC ODI batsmen rankings. In the first game of the IPL 2021, he could start at third base for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Manish Pandey was the most run-getter for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2020, following David Warner. Pandey scored 425 runs in 15 innings. He hit three half-centuries at a strike rate of 127+. In IPL 2021, he can bat at No. 4 instead of No. 3.
Vijay Shankar has risen to prominence as a result of his successful performances in domestic cricket over the years. He is a patient middle-order batsman who bats in the middle of the order. He scored 97 runs in five innings in IPL 2020, including one fifty. The right-handed batsman is an excellent middle-order choice for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Priyam Garg is another strong batsman in the domestic category. He batted in 10 innings last year, scoring 133 runs. This included a half-century that had never been beaten before. He’ll be an excellent choice for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the lower-middle order.
Behind the stumps, Wriddhiman Saha would be a strong choice. Saha has a lot of experience playing both domestically and abroad. He only played 4 innings last year, but in that period he smashed 214 runs at a 71+ batting average. There were two half-centuries in total, with a strike rate of 139+. This time, the Sunrisers Hyderabad would not forget the wicket-keeper batsman.
The SunRisers Hyderabad spin department will be led by Rashid, but the superstar leg-spinner believes he can also contribute with the bat, especially in the death overs.
Mujeeb ur Rahman
Sunrisers Hyderabad paid Rs. 1.5 crore for Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman, who will be the best spinner to introduce in the first game. The 21-year-old youngster has considerable experience in international domestic leagues and will prove his worth to the team if given the opportunity.
Sandeep Sharma had a great year last year. Sharma took 14 wickets in 13 IPL 2020 matches. He was the tournament’s 12th most wicket-taker. Sandeep Sharma has acquired a lot of experience in the T20 format over the years. In IPL 2021, the right-arm medium pacer should be among Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top pacers.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was only able to play four matches in the IPL 2020 due to injury, taking three wickets. He missed the majority of the matches due to injury and will be looking to make a return in the IPL 2021 season. In the bowling department, he will be a great balance.
T Natarajan attracted the attention of cricket fans in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar in most of the IPL 2020 matches. Natarajan was the most effective bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2020, taking 16 wickets in 16 matches, second only to Rashid Khan. He was called up to the national team as a result of his impressive results in the IPL. He was famous for his success in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2020-21.
