After a successful World T20 campaign for Mishra, Sunrisers will be pretty pleased they brought him back for $791,000. At that price tag, he probably still represents quite a bargain.
Similarly, Sammy for the price of $583,000 is an absolute steal. He is fast becoming one of the best finishers of the game and has had a stellar few months in white-ball cricket. He could very well become the Sunrisers' MVP during their campaign.
India starlet Bhuvneshwar Kumar for $708,000 was another fine buy. He showed during the World T20 that he has the ability to force pressure and swing the ball in any conditions, a handy skill to have in the shortest format of the game.
The $666,000 they paid for Finch again looks like great business. Finch is more consistent than Warner, and if Sunrisers manage to shuffle the team to have them both at the top of the order, there will be fireworks.
Sunrisers have done a good job of compiling a strong and balanced squad. There is a wealth of experience in this team and with a support structure consisting of some of the finest mind in cricket, they look set for a solid campaign.
