Hyderabad endured a disappointing start to their 2020 Indian T20 League season and but got back to winnings ways, which they have continued so far by beating Bangalore in the Eliminator to make it to Qualifier 2.

HYD's opening match saw them fall short by 10 runs while chasing a target of 164 against Bangalore and their second encounter turned out to be somewhat of a walk in the park for Kolkata, who comfortably chased down a target of 143 to win the contest by seven wickets and two overs to spare.

A major reason behind their dismal start to the season was their top-order batting woes with skipper David Warner, in particular, struggling to find form. However, Warner has since returned to the standards expected of him and we find him leading the Hyderabad table. Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson and Jonny Bairstow have also been reliable batsmen for Hyderabad, having scored runs quite consistently.

But Hyderabad will still need the likes of Manish Pandey, Rashid Khan, Priyam Garg and Vijay Shankar to step up if they want to be competitive in the all-important Qualifier 2.

With that in mind, here’s a list of players with most runs for HYD in the Indian T20 League 2020 so far:

Player Runs Average Strike Rate
David Warner 548 39.14 134.64
Manish Pandey 425 32.69 127.62
Jonny Bairstow 345 31.36 126.83
Kane Williamson 317 45.28 133.75
Wriddhiman Saha 214 71.33 139.86
