With a good mixture of experienced campaigners and young guns, Sunrisers Hyderabad have a formidable team as compared to the last three seasons.Â It should be fair to say that they probably have one of the best top-orders in this season's IPL.

The quartet of Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh possess the ability to rip apart any opposition. In the middle-order, the likes of Aditya Tare and Eoin Morgan are good options.Â (IPL 9: Kings XI Punjab Rely On 'Big Show' Glenn Maxwell For Impact)
The bowling department has been strengthened by the addition of Ashish Nehra, who was India's most effective bowler in the recently concluded T20 World Cup with five wickets from five games. Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh's young sensation has also been a great buy. Mustafizur, who finished the World T20 with nine wickets in three games, including a haul of 5/22 against New Zealand in Kolkata, could startÂ ahead of Trent Boult, who spent the entire tournament on the bench for the Kiwis.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team Potential:
On paper, Sunrisers Hyderabad look a very strong unit and will provide a tough competition for all other participating teams. Their only weakness is a thin Indian bench strength. With their overseas bench strength looking settled, they could face a problem if some key Indian players get injured. With Yuvraj Singh missing the semi-final against West Indies in Mumbai due to an ankle injury, he could be a doubtful starter for their first match and the team will look to fill the void.Â
