After releasing five players including two overseas players– Shakib al Hasan and Martin Guptill, Sunrisers Hyderabad bolstered their squad in the IPL 2020 auction by acquiring the services of Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and West Indies’ spinner Fabian Allen. The Hyderabad-based franchise also got hold of prospects like Abdul Samad and Priyam Garg.
Sunrisers are equipped with many eminent players in their batting arsenal including the likes of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson. They also boast a robust bowling attack that consists of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi and Khaleel Ahmed. Sunrisers, who finished fourth last season, will begin their 2020 IPL campaign at home against defending champion Mumbai Indians on April.
The Orange Army had a decent IPL 2019 season. Hyderabad finished on the fourth place after clinching six wins out of 14 matches last season. With their move of assigning the captaincy to Warner, Hyderabad will aim to clinch their second IPL trophy.
