IPL 2021: Retained Players Of Hyderabad, 3 Slots To Fill

After another run into the Playoffs, their fifth on the bounce, SRH needs little in the form of reinforcement as evidenced by their 22-man retention list.

They also have only INR 10.75 cr in the kitty and will mostly spectate at the auction except when a player that fits specific requirements comes calling.

– Death-overs batting has been a concern for SRH. Over the last three editions, they’ve scored only at 8.89, 9.62 and 8.96 and have lost 40+ wickets each time in this phase.

There is also a tendency to collapse in routine chases as was seen twice last year (vs RCB & KXIP).

Mitchell Marsh, who had a good BBL season, and Jason Holder who filled in for him admirably are options alongside Indian youngsters. SRH won’t say no to someone with more gravitas, Indian or overseas.

-While they have an army of fast bowlers, none of them are tear-away quick with Billy Stanlake now released. One quick bowler may be up for grabs.
