SRH has 7 slots to fill with a budget of 17 Cr. Let’s look at the current squad before IPL 2020 Auctions SRH:
With over dependency on Warner and Bairstow SRH found it difficult to score quick runs post their openers hence they would like to strengthen their middle order with domestic IND players.
SRH might go for domestic lower middle batsmen who can finish the innings as that has been their undoing for the last 2-3 seasons.
Fast Bowling all-rounder who can get quick runs and gives a bowling alternative could be another option
They would also like to have an overseas backup for Stanlake who has fitness issues with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Siddharth Kaul also struggling recently they can rope in fast bowlers.
