The Sunrisers Hyderabad accommodated star players like Tom Moody, Mutthaiah Muralidharan, KL Rahul, and Yuvraj Singh since 2013. Some players were benched despite being picked up by the franchise. The team is famous for solid bowling line-up but lifted the title only once since the inception of the franchise. Let us take a look at some of the benched players of SRH who never played for the team.
- Brendan Taylor
This 32-year old player was one of the core players for Zimbabwe. He is the player who scored the highest number of centuries in ODIs for Zimbabwe. He was bought by the team in the seventh IPL season but was confined to the bench that year and was left unsold in the rest of the seasons.
- Clint Mc Cay
He is an outstanding performer for Australia in all the formats. He did well in the Big Bash League this year. He was picked by Mumbai Indians in 2012 and picked a single wicket in that season. He picked 97 wickets from 59 matches in his ODI career. In 2013, he was unsold but later picked by Sunrisers Hyderabad. He did not get a chance to play for the team in that season.
- Ben Laughlin
He is one of the crucial players for Australia. He is playing for Rajasthan Royals in the current IPL season. Earlier, he was picked by the SRH in the tenth edition of IPL. But he did not play a single game in that season. In 2013, he picked 7 wickets for Chennai Super Kings and in the current season, he picked 5 wickets off 5 games for Rajasthan Royals.
- Chris Lynn
This pinch-hitter is currently playing for Kolkata Knight Riders. He scored 277 runs off 10 innings to date. He was picked by SRH in 2013 but ended up warming the bench in that season.
