UWeWorld’s take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad Squad

SRH made some sensible and low cost purchases at the auction. They got back up for all their main players in the squad. They also have the impact players in their squad like David Warner, Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra. SRH look compact and ready to depend their IPL crown. This squad looks mighty dangerous and super impressive. We cant wait to see the Afghanistan Players in Action. We wish SRH all the very best in their title defense.
