2021 IPL Players List: Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad
Sunrisers Hyderabad still manages to punch above their weight, and they have done the same even in the IPL 2020. The team used its resources wisely and made it to the playoffs despite not having a considerable depth in their batting line-up, particularly middle-order. The Royal Challengers Bangalore were also defeated in the eliminator but fell one step short of making it to the final.

Having won the IPL once back in 2016, SRH has been one of the few teams since then to make it to the top four each year. In the upcoming auction, they will undoubtedly improve their batting and, keeping the same in mind, and they have decided to release a few players. After the auction last year, they already had Rs 10.1 crore left and releasing cricketers helped them go at a few superstars full-throttle when bidding.

As for the list of retained players, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is one of the first names who last season did not play all games, but proved his worth reinforcing the batting in the second half. On social media, David Warner has also stated that the franchise would not release Williamson at any cost. Another unsurprising retention is that of Rashid Khan, who in every season has been excellent for them.
