SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) are one of the most successful franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL). SRH made their debut in 2013, where they reached the playoffs, eventually finishing at the fourth place.
The Orange Army won their maiden IPL title in 2016, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by eight runs in the final. SRH have qualified for the knockout stage in every season of the tournament since 2016.
In 2018, the Sunrisers reached the finals of the IPL, but lost to Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets, following a match-winning ton from Shane Watson.
SRH are considered one of the best bowling sides, often admired for their ability to defend low totals. David Warner is their leading run-scorer, having won the Orange Cap three times – in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the leading wicket-taker for SRH, having won the purple cap for two consecutive years – in 2016 and 2017.
