Schedule : IPL 2013.
Kumar Sangakkara will have the toughest job in next two months, captaining Hyderabad with limited batting resources in Shikhar Dhawan, JP Duminy and Cameron White. Dwarka Ravi Teja has been around since the tournament began while Chris Lynn is a 23 year old brought in from Queensland, Australia. Among the young batting talent, Hyderabad have hired 24 year right hander Biplap Samantray, 28 year old Thalaivan Sargunam from Tamil Nadu and local boys 19 year old Hanuma Vihari and Akshath Reddy, 22.
Parthiv Patel will be the first choice wicket keeper with captain Sangakkara as other option but Sunrisers have also managed to get Quinton de Kock on board. Young South African is seen as next big thing back home, but can he adjust to high demands here in India?
Darren Sammy is one intelligent recuit for SRH. West Indian captain is capable with bat and bowl as well as fields acrobatically. He can turn the match around on his day, easy. Thisara Perera is regular name for Sri Lankans these days in limited overs format. Among newbies, Karan Sharma and Ankit Sharma will hope for few chances.
Dale Steyn bowled his heart out for Deccan last year but couldn't win them many games. This year, he'll want to repeat his performance while leading the attack with Ishant Sharma and Clint McKay. Sudeep Tyagi is India discard after 4 ODIs while Anand Rajan, Ashish Reddy, Veer Pratap Singh and Sachin Rana as upcoming speedsters.
Amit Mishra is almost the lone full time spinner in the squad, and he's a good choice. New Zealander Nathan McCullum is an allround cricketer with offspin as his main trade.
