Sunrisers Hyderabad have retained Shikhar Dhawan and Dale Steyn for the 2014 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. They had an option of retaining five players, but opted only for the two. Hyderabad finished fourth in the 2013 IPL season behind Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.

 

They even participated in the 2013 Champions League Twenty20 season. They were led by Dhawan and it was no surprise that he has been retained.

 

 

Steyn was one of the best bowlers in the 2013 IPL season and Hyderabad have made sure they have retained his services for the coming season.

 

Other players who could have been retained were Darren Sammy, Thisara Perera, Quinton de Kock and Ishant Sharma.
