The thirteenth edition of the IPL will hit the ground running from 19 September, Saturday in the UAE. The much-awaited season of the league will be conducted across three venues – Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah over 53 days. A total of 56 league stage matches will be followed by the four playoff games in November 2020.
As the countdown to the tournament opener gradually goes into single digits, the teams are preparing themselves to be at the top of their game. Among these teams, are the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who will be the happiest to play in bowling conditions that the UAE offers.
The Sunrisers have won just one title yet in 2016 under the leadership of the Australian opener David Warner. In 2020, he might be itching to go big once again and take them all the way.
The pitches in the UAE are generally on the slower side and they aid spin as the pitches get older. IPL 2020 might see that happening as a total of 60 matches on 3 venues will be a lot to take for the pitches in play. With a spin squad of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Shahbaz Nadeem, and Abhishek Sharma, SRH will be well-placed to be among the frontrunners to win the IPL.
They have quite the bowlers in their arsenal to choke the batsmen on slow and turning tracks. Bowling has been the prime forte for SRH even in India and it will be boosted by the conditions available on the venues for IPL 13.
