International Cricket will be the flavor for the next few months. With the ODI World Cup just 13 days away teams and fans are getting ready for the huge event. Once the World Cup is over, the focus will shift to the IPL action.
Teams are soon set to name the players that they want to release and retain ahead of the new season. Sunrisers Hyderabad had spent lots of money during the Auctions held last year-end. They broke the bank to get English talent, Harry Brook.
Despite all the money being pumped in, the 2016 IPL champions finished at the bottom of the table. Hyderabad won just four games and could only get 8 points. This set lots of tongues wagging because the team was expensively assembled. The rumors had already begun swirling on a few player's futures.
Sunrisers Hyderabad device unique way to hint that release of certain players
2016 IPL Champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad are generally known to be very active on various social media platforms. The team in orange on Thursday took to Twitter set tongues wagging. Star pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar was featured on an edited cover of a popular cricket game from the 2000’s.
What caught the eye of the fans was that SRH had named 20 players in the squad. Five names though were missing. The fans then came to the conclusion that those five names would be the ones released. The names include that of West Indian bowler Akeal Hossein.

The other four in question are the Indian talents that were on show last year. Nitish Kumar Reddy, Upendra Yadav, Samarth Vyas, and Anmolpreet Singh are the players in question. This unique way to potentially hint at the departures has set the fans speculating.
Despite his indifferent form with the bat, Harry Brook has seemingly been retained. The Sunrisers Team have also hinted at retaining Aiden Markram as the skipper. Curiously, Heinrich Klassen has been listed as the wicketkeeper. Mayank Agarwal and Abhishek Sharma have been listed as the openers.
SRH has also hinted at a pace-heavy playing XI for the next season. Bhuvneshwar Kumar could be sharing the new ball with Marco Jansen. The other two pacers are T. Natarajan and Umran Malik.
