Sunrisers Hyderabad is a team that has always entertained the crowd with their grit and ability to punch above their weight. They are one of the few teams who have regularly challenged the top-tier sides like CSK and MI. All these have been possible due to a settled bowling unit and a couple of batting stalwarts in their ranks.

Another thing which has made them a quality side is their strategic planning and it can be best explained from their auction buys. As far as their IPL legacy is concerned the team is known for their success in defending low totals which in turn has masked their one of their biggest strengths. It is none other than the exemplary on-field discipline that has helped them achieve great heights.

Right from the early days, the Hyderabad franchise has stayed true to the norms of gentlemen’s game. They have always treated their opponents with great respect and there is not a single episode where their stars have been on the wrong side. Except in 2012 when one of their squad members T.P. Sudhindra was alleged to have taken part in spot-fixing activities. Immediately the franchise released him and it shows their stand on controversial matters.
