Pandey will add the steel in middle-order
A whopping Rs. 11 crore sum spent on Manish Pandey has a valid justification. The player has grown into a consistent and mature player for India in T20Is. He was emphatic at KKR and has the ability to bat long and play the finishing role.
Interesting bunch of all-rounders
The franchise have gone for the promising Carlos Brathwaite.
The West Indian will look to have a crack and show his mettle.
Bangladesh's senior player Shakib Al Hasan gives them the edge with his spin. He is also a classy middle-order batsman.
Afghan Mohammad Nabi adds bench strength.
Besides the trio, their RTM player Deepak Hooda makes them look strong and spoilt for choices.
Shakib is a vital cog in SRH's set-up
The former KKR player is a world class all-rounder and his presence bodes well. A productive left-arm spinner, besides the silken touch with the bat in the middle, gives Warner's side character. He will need to be consistent in his offing as a senior member.
Bowling looks to have a real go at opposition
Like KKR, SRH have gone for a strong bowling line-up.
Purple Cap holder Bhuvneshwar Kumar is their leader in attack with all the attributes of a complete bowler.
Afghanistan's Rashid Khan adds steel to the spin attack, besides Mehdi Hasan and T Natarajan.
Siddarth Kaul, Basil Thampi and Sandeep Sharma are quality support cast.
Chris Jordan and Billy Stanlake add vital experience in pace.
Bhuvi their go to option in bowling
The Indian star pacer is two-time holder of the Purple Cap. It shows how successful he has been in the format. He is India's leading bowler in limited overs and knows the SRH team in and out. Warner's most trusted asset, Bhuvi is a gem.
What's our take on Sunrisers Hyderabad?
Having both the Orange and the Purple Cap holders, team SRH could not have asked for better leaders. Manish Pandey's addition is an important factor in the middle-order. With every department stacked up, they are likely to give teams a run for their money.

As everyone knows SRH's captain Kane Williamson himself is an overseas player, so SRH can play with 3 more foreign players in a match, who will most likely be Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan and Carlos Brathwaite.
