Last year, Sunrisers Hyderabad did some drastic changes to do well in the 2022 IPL edition. The franchise also cut ties with its most successful player, David Warner, who won them the title in 2016 with his leadership skills. However, things didn’t change for them as SRH ended at the eighth position in the last year’s competition. With six triumphs and eight defeats in 14 games, SRH failed to leave an impact in the tournament under Kane Williamson.

In November 2022, they released Williamson too, after his flop show in the previous edition. This year, they will look to have a great season with some influential names such as Mayank Agarwal, Harry Brook, Adil Rashid, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen. However, their presence might bench newcomers looking to make their debuts in the upcoming competition.

Here are 5 SRH players who might be benched throughout the season

5. Nitish Kumar Reddy

This mini-auction, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) roped in Andhra Pradesh cricketer, Nitish Kumar Reddy, at his base price of INR 20 lakh. In the IPL, he will look to be efficient for the franchise using his first-class experience. So far, he has racked up 84 runs and 19 wickets for Andhra in six first-class matches.

In the ongoing Ranji Trophy tournament, he looked solid with his medium-fast bowling taking 18 wickets in five matches. However, these impressive figures might not convince his IPL franchise to include him in the playing XI. 

Currently, SRH have a fantastic Indian fast bowlers that includes names such as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan. These three pacers were magnificent for the franchise in the last season, as they shared 52 wickets among each other. With the availability of these three pacers, Reddy might not find a spot in SRH’s playing XI.
