  1. David Warner – The swashbuckling southpaw from Australia has been the foundation of the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top-order. Warner bleeds aggression and can dent the confidence of any bowler through his explosive batting talent. When it comes to fielding, there are few who can match his standard of agility. The three-time Orange-Cap-winner has been unarguably one of the most consistent and dependable performers in the history of the league.
  2. Jonny Bairstow – An obstinate right-hand batsman, this Yorkshireman is a recent entrant in the “Orange Army”. Opening with Warner, he provides a left-right hand combination which is unsettling and challenging for most of the bowlers. Bairstow is one mature contender who has shown his ability to adapt and mould his game as per situations. Apart from his pursuits with the bat, he is quite a decent wicket-keeping option for his side.
  3. Rashid Khan –The enigmatic leg-spinner from Afghanistan, Rashid, has troubled batsmen from all over the world. With his ability to mix his stock ball with an unreadable googly and pitching the ball in the right areas, he contains the run-scoring immensely. Whereas the other time he catches many by surprise by bowling quicker through the air. With the bat, he is an absolute power-hitter who has played quite a few quick-fire knocks over the years.
  4. Billy Stanlake – An express fast bowler from a nation known to produce many, Australia, Stanlake is the lone overseas-pacer in the SRH camp. As far as quicks are concerned, SRH has always relied on Indians, however, in Stanlake they have found a genuine quick who could exploit the new ball skillfully and has immense control on the ball. Big Billy, as he is called fondly, has significant strength in his height of 6 feet 8 inches and very unsurprisingly generates vicious bounce on any given track.
