    Possible replacements -
    • CM Gautam
    • Eklavya Dwivedi
    • Shahzad Mohommadi (can solve the explosive opening problem too)
    • Naman Ojha
    • Vishnu Vinod (did good for RCB)

    Naman is in DD. Saha is an excellent keeper, but hasn't scored anything in 8 matches, which is worrying for SRH.

    I think this season SRH have been able to cover all options in the bowling department, and our middle order looks a bit more settled with the inclusion of Vijay Shankar. The form of the SRH bowlers is a bit of a worry. Khaleel Ahmed can often be expensive, Kaul hasn't been at his best ever since the end of the IPL. Bhuvi doesn't seem as penetrative as he was before his injury last year. Hopefully, all that can be put aside.

    Some smart picks overall, Bairstow was a very good choice for an overseas wicketkeeper. A T20 specialist like Shahbaz Nadeem could complement Rashid Khan well. Think a seam-bowling allrounder would've been useful such as Carlos Brathwaite, allowing more flexibility to play both Rashid and Nadeem. Looking at the first game, I think SRH should go with this:

    Warner
    Bairstow
    Pandey
    Shankar
    Shakib
    Hooda
    Yusuf
    Rashid
    Bhuvi
    Kaul
    Sandeep

    Something tells me that Warner is going to struggle to score runs quickly in the first few games so I'd play Bairstow at the top rather than Goswami.

    Delhi must be knocking themselves on their head as to how they let go of Vijay Shankar. And Vijay Shankar did a good job last season for Delhi with some really useful knocks. I remember that knock he played against CSK where he almost won the game from an impossible position. And now that he is coming off a massive confidence surge after a successful India stint, watch out for him. If Shankar and Yusuf play together, SRH's middle order is fixed.

    I would be really surprised if SRH do not make another final, and maybe even win it this time. This team is like clockwork - perfectly put together.
