IPL auction 2018: Full Sunrisers Hyderabad team.

IPL auction 2018 players list: Sunrisers Hyderabad started the Indian Premier League auction with a bang when they cancelled Kings XI Punjab only to retain their star opener, Shikhar Dhawan, using Right-to-match (RTM) card for Rs 5.2 crore. Other players who were retained through RTM were the hot target Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan for Rs 9 crore and Deepak Hooda for Rs 3.6 crore. A right-to-match card gives the franchise the opportunity to buy back its player during the auction by matching the highest bid made for the player by another franchise once the bidding is over. SRH earlier, at the IPL retention 2018 had retained their captain and Australian opener, David Warner and one of best bowlers in the world Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Other players that the south-Indian team were bought on day 1 were Shakib Al-Hasan for Rs 2 crore, Ricky Bhui for Rs 20 lakh, Basil Thampi for Rs 95 lakh amongst others. SRH has been quite smart in spending money and have concentrated more on building a balanced squad rather than going for big names. Maybe the men behind it are their coach Tom Moody and mento VVS Laxman.  Interestingly, the most expensive player of IPL 2018 emerged to be England all-rounder Ben Stokes for the second year in the row. Other players who were the hot favourites of this years auction were KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Mitchell Starc, Rashid Khan, Krunal Pandya. Also, the young India U19 players had started a bidding war with Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Prithvi Shaw being sold to KKR and DD respectively.
