Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the Indian Premier League in 2016 under the captaincy of David Warner. Warner did not play the IPL last year because he was banned from playing cricket after the ball-tampering scandal. Kane Williamson led the team and took it to the finals but couldn’t win.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to win the trophy this year as they have got many star players like Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan. Some emerging players like Vijay Shankar, Deepak Hooda, Siddharth Kaul and Basil Thampi are also there to help the team.
