The Sunrisers Hyderabad are the latest side among the eight active teams of the Indian Premier League. The Hyderabad franchise took over from the Deccan Chargers in the 2013 edition and has enjoyed a fair bit of success. They got hold of the title in the 2016 edition and fell one step short in 2018 where they lost in the final.
The SRH team is known to be the team with the best bowling line-up due to the presence of some of the key T20 bowlers. Their title-winning skipper David Warner stands as the backbone of the batting line-up who has an impeccable record for the Hyderabad team.
