Warner led the Hyderabad-based franchise to their only IPL title in the year 2016. SRH made it to the finals of IPL in 2018, but lost to three-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by eight wickets. Last year, SRH ended their campaign with the third spot in the league table. Delhi Capitals (DC) beat them in the Qualifier. Also during the 13th edition held in the UAE, Warner finished at the third place in the Orange Cap race, scoring 548 runs from 16 fixtures which included four half-centuries. The Sunrisers Hyderabad made very few changes to their squad in the mini auction before the new season. They spent INR 3.8 crore to acquire the trio of Kedar Jadhav, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Jagadeesha Suchith.

Recently, wicketkeeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha revealed via social media that he has started gearing up for the coming season and shared a video of his practice session.Theplayer is known for his remarkable skills behind the stumps and also has the ability to score runs at a frantic pace. A valuable asset to the side, Saha will soon be seen in the orange jersey.

It will be five time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener. SRH will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their first match of the tournament on April 11 in Chennai. They are also scheduled to meet the Kolkata based outfit for their last clash before the playoffs. SRH and KKR will square off in Bangalore on May 21.
