How did the Sunrisers spend at the 2017 auction?

The Sunrisers had 20.9 crore rupees left in the bank and the Tom Moody managed side were keen on including local talent over splurging huge amounts on the big names. A total of 8.65 crore was spent on this year’s auction with majority of it being spent on youngsters. The auction also saw the inclusion of 2 Afghanistan internationals, Mohammad Nabi and Rashid khan.

Players Acquired in IPL 10 by Hyderabad (SRH)

Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Chris Jordan, Tanmay Agarwal, Ben Laughlin, Mohammed Siraj, EklavyaDwivedi& Pravin Tambe.

The Local Lads: Tanmay Agarwal (21) and Mohammad Siraj(23), the two youngsters were included in the squad after stacking up impressive numbers in the domestic tournaments. The former is an attacking opening batsman, while the latter is a fearless pacer.

Siraj’s debut Ranji season yielded him 41 wickets at an average of 18.92. His tally of 41 scalps put him at number three, behind Shabaz Nadeem and Anupam Sanklecha. He also managed 9 wickets in the Interstate twenty-20 tournament at 6.57 runs per over. The ability to bowl a 140 Kmph toe crusher requires some serious brilliance and Mohammed Siraj has that in abundance. From sharpening his skills in an incognito mode to attracting a bid of 2.6 crores, (13 times his base price) this pacer is certainly a talent to keep an eye on.

Tanmay Agarwal was included in the side at his base price 10Lakh. For people who’ve watched him bat, it might seem a bargain and a certain VVS Laxman has surely used this to the team’s advantage. The southpaw had a decent Ranji season where he notched up 462 runs in 7 games at 38.50. His power hitting was noticed in the Interstate twenty-20 tournament where he bludgeoned

some of India’s finest pacers to all corners of the park. He topped the aggregate for the tournament with 250 runs in 5 games striking at 162.33. With an attractive technique and a disguised ability clear the boundary he’s a player to watch out for.

The Afghan Duo: 

The focal point of the 2017 auction was the addition of 5 Afghanistan internationals in the IPL draft. Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan were picked by the Sunrisers Hyderabad. While the former was auctioned for 30 Lakh, the latter attracted a massive bid of 4 Crore rupees.

Afghanistan have been on an 11-game winning streak in T20 internationals, a new record. The duo has been the architects in most their wins. The leg-break bowler has impressive T20 stats; 40 wickets in 24 games at 13.02 and an economy rate of just above 6. If Nabi was the top wicket-taker at the 2016 World T20 Cup in India with 12, Rashid finished a close second with 11. The inclusion of Rashid Khan can prove to be a master stroke considering the tracks in India and the scouts must be lauded for such polished work.

SRH Team Preview | Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 10 Team Preview

The Champions play their first game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on the 5th of April in their own backyard. The team has a fine blend of experience and exuberance. The balance of the team seems to have settled to a nicety. With Warner and Dhawan a certain opening combination, the likes of Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh who can hold one end and strike meaty blows, follow. Deepak Hooda and Vijay Shankar are heading into the tournament with a lot of runs in the domestic games and can produce special knocks.

The team quintessentially has a plethora of all-rounders; Henriques, Ben Cutting, Chris Jordan, Nabi, all can give the ball a heavy tonk. The bowling unit has been the nucleus of this team and has a lot of variety. The robustness of Mustafizur, Chris Jordan and Barinder Singh Sran is backed by the dexterity of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Ashish Nehra the spearhead of this young bowling unit will add more quality. Pace, swing, spin, yorker bowling ability, this line up has it all; can trouble the best in the world and often win the game with relative ease.

The only team to successfully defend their crown were the Chennai Super Kings in the year 2011.

The Sunrisers are a force to reckon with but with the shortest format of the game being impulsive, a title defense will require a sturdy display of character.
