Sunrisers Hyderabad to play their IPL 2020 opener vs Mumbai Indians on April 1

IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad released their full schedule for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday. The Hyderabad based franchise will play their IPL 2020 opener on April 1 against Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.

Overall, SRH is going to play 14 matches in IPL 2020 with their last group match scheduled against Kolkata Knight Riders on May 15 at the Eden Gardens. However, there is no official confirmation on the complete schedule of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Sunrisers Hyderabad, which has won the IPL once and qualified for the playoffs five times, retained most of its squad including youngsters Abhishek Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma. SRH roped in some promising youngsters in the ranks during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 auction last week. The Kane Williamson-led side got two strong uncapped Indian youngsters to bolster the batting. They were joined by foreigners Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen to bring more depth.

SRH managed to get together a talent pool that is enough to decimate any bowling attack that they play against in the IPL auctions. With a solid core at the top, assisted by a sturdy and sensible middle-order and followed by a series of big-hitting batsmen, they have a line-up that any team would drool on.

Here’s a look at the complete SRH squad:

Kane Williamson (captain), David Warner, Manish Pandey, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mitchell Marsh, Fabian Allen, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sanjay Yadav, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami, Bavanaka Sandeep, Basil Thampi.
