Sunrisers Hyderabad should have kept these three players

Sunrisers Hyderabad should have kept these three players
In their previous IPL season, SRH had a year to forget, finishing last in the points standings. The Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling unit has long been regarded as the strongest in the league. They were, however, fairly ordinary in 2021. Only Rashid Khan appeared to be in good rhythm, while the other bowlers lacked flamboyance.

After the former Hyderabad-based franchise was dismissed from the IPL, the team joined the league in 2013. Since, they've been a constant fixture, winning the title in 2016 after defeating RCB in the final under David Warner's captaincy. In most seasons, their performance has been fairly good.

Their retention leading up to the IPL 2022 Super Auction have been the most shocking. They have kept Kane Williamson, which is understandable given that he is the front-runner for captaincy. Abdul Samad and Umran Malik are the other two retainers. Although the Jammu-Kashmir team is talented, the Orange Army had more choices.

Let's discuss three SRH players that should have been kept ahead of the IPL 2022 super auction in this post.

1. Rashid Khan
The franchise has released Rashid Khan, which was the biggest news from the retentions. Khan has been the most consistent performer for Sunrisers Hyderabad, despite the fact that he remains unpredictably unpredictable and unplayable on his days.

The leg-spinner has 93 dismissals to his record in 76 IPL games, with a bowling average of 20.56. He has a 6.33 economy rate, which is excellent in 20-over cricket. The most talked-about aspect of his game is his arm speed, and he is extremely swift in the air when compared to other wrist-spinners. He is only 23 years old and has a promising future.

2. David Warner
David Warner, the team's top run-scorer, is the only skipper to lead SRH to an IPL victory. He is the epitome of consistency, having won the Orange Cap three times in the league while representing Hyderabad (2015,2017 and 2019). He was the driving force behind Hyderabad's victory in the 2016 title race.

Warner has 5449 IPL runs at an average of 41.6 in 150 matches. He also has 50 fifties and 400s to his credit. He is the fifth best run-scorer in IPL history and has the most runs among international players. He is currently one of the top batters in the cricket world.

3. Manish Pandey
Manish Pandey, the first Indian to strike a century and the Player of the Match in the 2014 IPL final, has had numerous highs and lows throughout his career. He began his IPL career with RCB, then moved on to KKR before being purchased by SRH in the 2018 auction for INR 11 crores.

He's appeared in 154 IPL games and scored 3560 runs. He has a 30.49 batting average and a 121.83 strike rate. He was also a retention option for Sunrisers Hyderabad because every team requires an Indian middle-order hitter who can be a regular member of the playing 11. He's also made some excellent plays under stress.
