Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is best known for its stunning bowling-attack for the last two seasons, something they are repeating in 2018 IPL season as well.

Head coach of the SRH Tom Moody was also in full praise for his bowling unit after they have saved Sunday’s (29 April) IPL 2018 encounter against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Jaipur. It was the third lowest total that was successfully defended by the SRH bowlers so far in the IPL 2018.

As per reports in Cricbuzz, Moody stated, “I think once you get a bowling unit that is young, impressive and always looking to develop, they generate their own growth and energy. I think that's what we are finding within our group. There's a positive energy within that group, they're all learning off each other. There's a strong work ethic along with a strong determination to learn from each other.”

The SRH coach further added, "We've got bowlers who not only have experience but a great, diverse level of skill and we were very aware during the auction process that we wanted to make sure our depth in quality of Indian pace attack is a strong one. It's not a great surprise to me that they [young Indian pacers] have delivered.”

Meanwhile, Siddarth Kaul, who is the leading wicket-taker in the IPL 2018 at the moment, was lavished praise on the Indian seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar who has had great influence at the SRH camp, saying his tips greatly helped the youngsters.

The 27-year-old Punjab pacer further said, “No one gives us instructions as to how to bowl because we are all mature enough. Some have played domestic [cricket], most of them have played IPL for some years, some have played international cricket.”

He signed off by saying, “Bhuvneshwar Kumar has helped us all the time, when he is playing with the team and in the nets. It is a big advantage when a player having international exposure gives us tips in a particular situation. When he offers us advice, it helps immensely to players who have started their career.
