With IPL Auctions coming to an end, the teams are finally looking to be at their full strength. One of the teams that had it easy in the IPL Auctions was Sunrisers Hyderabad, who did not have to worry much about the auctions. Having all the bases covered, the auctions were more like a mere formality for the orange army.

Sunrisers Hyderabad went in with a total purse of 10.75 crores which made it pretty obvious that they were not going to buy any big players. Throughout the auction, they only got 3 players; Mujeeb-Ur Rahman, Kedar Jadhav, and Jagadeesha Suchith. They bought Mujeeb for 1.5 crore, Kedar Jadhav for 2 crore, and Jagadeesha Suchith for 30 lakh.

However, with all their bases already covered, it seems highly unlikely that they will make any adjustments to their playing XI. Kedar Jadhav might get an opportunity here and there, but he is likely to warm the bench.

David Warner is an obvious choice as an opener for Sunrisers Hyderabad as he has been their spine and is leading the team from the front. He is one of the most prolific batsmen in the history of IPL with over 5000 runs in IPL. He is one batsman Sunrisers Hyderabad do not want to leave, so much so that he leads the side as well.

David Warner has been so successful with the bat that in his last 6 seasons, he has scored over 500 runs in each edition. The Australian has also won 3 orange caps in the last 6 seasons, which shows the level of consistency which he has maintained over the years.

In IPL 2020, David Warner scored 548 runs at an average of just under 40. He was the third highest run-getter of the tournament. He will look to continue the havoc he created in the previous 6 seasons with the bat, and hopefully lift the trophy as a captain.
