Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) is a cricket team established in 2013. The predecessor of the Hyderabad team was Deccan Challengers, who also won the second IPL under the captainship of Adam Gilchrist. SRH's annual performance is more than average, leading to the play-offs. But apart from the 2016 season they have won, SRH has been failing as a team in performance in IPL. They have well-known players from their countries. Assistant personnel includes people such as VVS Laxman and Muralitharan. Here are the top 10 best batsmen of Sun Risers Hyderabad
10. Jonny Bairstow
Bairstow has built a potent opening combination with David Warner, one of England's limited-overs side highlights. He scored 445 runs in 10 games with an average of 55.62. The England man can open the innings with David Warner, who made the most explosive team in the IPL 14.
9. Yuvraj Singh
An Indian champion in the 2007, 2011 World Cup qualifiers, Yuvraj was ready for SRH in his short time. He has scored 488 runs in 22 games with an average of 27.11. He assists with his off-spin bowling and is a leader on the field and dressing room.
8. Naman Ojha
One of SRH’s most expensive players held his form a few seasons ago. Pandey has scored 628 runs in 27 games with an average of 33.05. He scored 114 undefeated at Royal Challengers Bangalore and wrote his name in IPL history by becoming the first Indian to score a 100 in the competition.
7. Manish Pandey
One of SRH's most expensive players held his form a few seasons ago. Pandey has scored 628 runs in 27 games with an average of 33.05. He scored 114 undefeated at Royal Challengers Bangalore and wrote his name in IPL history by becoming the first Indian to score a 100 in the competition.
6. Moises Henriques
All-rounder Australian player has donated a lot of SRH hats and played great matches. He scored 755 runs in 42 games with a score of 27.96 and a strike of 128.83. He has played mainly in SRH's top order placing, but his versatility means he can get in or out of the bottom if needed.
5. Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma, with 5230 runs, is the fourth-highest run capturer in the history of IPL, most of his runs coming to Mumbai Indians, his side from Deccan Challengers after 2011. Rohit Sharma made 1219 runs during his journey in SRH.
4. Adam Gilchrist
Adam Gilchrist and Rohit Sharma were the most impressive batsmen of the Deccan Challengers for the initial span of three years. After the first season, Gilchrist also took over the captainship from VVS Laxman, leading the team to moderate success.
3. Kane Williamson
Kane Williamson joined the Hyderabad franchise in 2015, and with the assistance of Manish Pandey, formed the middle order of the team over the years. Except for Pandey, Williamson is the only player besides the top two to have scored more than 1000 runs in SRH.
2. Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is the fifth-highest run capturer in the IPL and is one of only five batsmen to have won more than 5000 runs. Most of Dhawan’s runs have also reached the Hyderabad franchise, which he played until 2018, forming a deadly opening combination with Warner for most of this season. Dhawan was also part of the Deccan challenges side before dismantling it.
1. David Warner
David Warner is the only overseas player to have scored more than 5000 runs in the IPL and the third-highest scorer in the league, behind Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. Most of Warner's 5254 runs came as captain and opened as the batsman for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
