Sunrisers Hyderabad, the 2016 IPL champions, have released five players this year.

They have arguably the best bowling attack in the tournament, but they still lack good finishers to go with their heavy top order. Keeping that in mind, here are the top five players SRH can go for in the IPL Auction next month.

5. Dhruv Shorey

Released from CSK, Dhruv Shorey has been performing consistently in the domestic circuit. He has the ability to hit the ball long.

He can be a cheap buy for SRH and can be the perfect replacement for Yusuf Pathan, who has been released by SRH this year. Shorey can show his class if given the opportunity.

4. Aaron Finch

Aaron Finch can be picked up as a backup opener in case someone is injured or not available for the whole season like Jonny Bairstow last year. Also, with Martin Guptill now released, Finch is a great option for SRH.

The current form of the Australian skipper in T20Is is very good and he’s been known for striking the ball hard. He is slightly underrated in the IPL and can really make his name if he gets to play for the Sunrisers. After all, he is holder of a special T20 record.

Aaron Finch can be a good purchase for SRH.

3. Stuart Binny

This may suprise many, but SRH can go for Stuart Binny. The reasons? They have four overseas players almost locked in and need an Indian player who can bat with a high strike rate and can bowl a few overs, too.

Stuart Binny has been known for playing aggressively and with a strike rate of 175 in the previous season, he can be a good pick for the Sunrisers.

Would Stuart Binny be a good fit for SRH?

2. Glenn Maxwell

Englishman Liam Livingstone originally made this list. However, with his decision to pull out of the IPL to focus on red ball cricket, a spot has opened up for another all-rounder.

That man is Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell, who would also work wonders for CSK, could be the player that SRH needs in IPL 2020. With Shakib out and Mohammad Nabi in scratchy form of late, Maxwell can provide some crucial overs with the ball. However, more importantly, he can help finish the innings well – something SRH have struggled with.

1. David Miller

Finishing the innings has been the biggest problem for SRH for quite some time now. Who else will be the best pick for them apart from The “Killer” Miller? Everyone knows how destructive he can be on his day and can make up for the finishing skills SRH lacks.

Miller can be the perfect pick for Sunrisers Hyderabad given that their bowling attack can restrict teams.

So, this was our choice of players that SRH can go for this Auction.

Tell us how you like them and which players you’d like to join the Orange Army.
