The Purple Cap winner is undoubtedly the best of bowling attacks the team has to offer. He has had also shown his potential as a captain in the 2019 season when Williamson had to step down due to injury. Kumar is in a strong form of late and speaks of great promise for the Hyderabad team.
The Afghan player is a killer with his spin attacks and he has proved his mettle as a solid match-winner for SRH already. Khan has been through some great spells lately and is in a smashing form of late. His presence in the team would do much to bolster the SRH bowling side to greater heights.
