IPL 2019: Sunrisers Hyderabad infuse power-packed side with new talent
Sunrisers Hyderabad in the presence of their Team Mentor V.V.S Laxman, Head Coach Tom Moody and Bowling Coach Muttiah Muralitharan showcased the newly-recruited talent for the twelfth edition of Indian Premier League. The team has reinforced its solid, all-round strength with new additions like Martin Guptill, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem.
Formed in 2013, Sunrisers Hyderabad have been one of the most consistent performers, having won the tournament in 2016 and finishing as finalists in 2018. They are all set to clinch their second title with a formidable bowling core and exceptional batting line-up. David Warner’s return will bolster the team, along with the presence of experienced players like Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan.
The team has as many as 23 players in the squad which is a right blend of youth and experience with a good mix of Indian and international talent. The Orange Army will start their campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders on 24th March, 2019 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium will continue to be the home ground for the Orange Army. Kane Williamson will lead the charge and guide this talented side to victory.
“We have a very stable squad and the performance of the team in 2018 exhibited the same as we topped the table. The new, young players will bring in even more exuberance and aggression to this side. Under the able leadership of Kane Williamson, this team has the potential and capability to go one step ahead and bag the trophy this time around,” head coach Tom Moody said.
