Knicknamed the Orange Army, Sunrisers Hyderabad are owned by Kalanithi Maran from the Sun TV Network and were founded in 2012.

The team is coached by former England head coach and Australian batsman Trevor Bayliss and capitained by fellow Aussie David Warner.

The Sunrisers usually play at the 55,000-capacity Rajiv Ghandi International Cricket Stadium and won the IPL in 2016.

In the 2019 season the team ended with sx wins and nine losses but despite only coming fourth in the playoffs, current captain David Warner won the league’s orange cap, given to the league’s leading run scorer.

Fans will be hoping that the opening batsman pairing of Warner and England player Jonny Bairstow will continue their good partnership, and New Zealander Kane Williamson also chips in with plenty of runs.

Despite the batting talent in the squad, the Sunrisers are thought of as one of the league’s best bowling teams, with medium pacer Bhuvanesh Kumar their leading wicket taker in the 2019 season.

They’ll also be hoping that Australian fast bowler Billy Stanlake will contribute his fair share of wickets, alongside Afghani Rashid Khan, one of the league’s biggest threats.

Khan’s dependable countryman and all-rounder Mohammad Nabi is another player the Orange Army will be expecting to have a good season.
