ESPNcricinfo staff
Pick which players you think Sunrisers Hyderabad should keep, if they are given a limited choice ahead of next year's reshuffle

Next year, the IPL will see another reshuffle, with most players going back into the auction. Teams may be allowed to retain a few players - a maximum of four retained players were allowed in 2011 and five in 2014. If Sunrisers Hyderabad can keep some of their players, who should they use their quota on? Swipe right for the players you think should stay and left for those who should go back into the auction.

    What's in it for the players to be retained? They should get an opportunity to renegotiate with the franchise. Better perfornace needs to be rewarded and poor performers put back in auction.

    Franchises need to be allowed to retain 11. They have invested so much in grooming the team.

    Warner, dhawan, bhuvi, Yuvaraj, Rashid Khan, if there is chance for more then musthafizzer , henrices, cutting

    SRH should look to retain Warner, Bhuvneshwar, Rashid, Dhawan and Williamson (in that order, depending on the limit). These star players are more likely to get higher bids in the auction hence retaining them is the ideal choice.

    Tom Moody will look to get more Australians in his team, perhaps targetting Henriques and Cutting again. Although Mustafizur is an excellent talent, I feel the BCB will look to protect him and he will eventually go down the Starc route (skipping IPL altogether). Yuvraj and Nehra are spent forces, time to invest into the future like Siraj and Shankar. SRH's #1 target next year should be good wicket keeper batsman, can't believe we let go of De Kock!

    If 3 players 1. Warner 2. Bhuvi 3. Williamson should be retained, warner and williamson are current solid batmens around the world and also gives solidity to bating. Further to it another 2 fast bowlers and 2 spinners should build.. there after try to buy genuine alrouder and 2 reliable, consistent and hitting indian batsmens. Thereafter there will not be looking back and results will come.

    warner henriques dhawan cutting rashid nabi BK Siraj Kaul williamson. These core players will build franchse. if not all allowed only 5 players then -Warner, BK ,Rashid, Siraj and Williamson. If only 3 allowed then Warner, Rashid, BK. These 3 form vital cog of sunrisers fanbase any day. Please trash all other players esp nehra and yv, including naman hooda bipul etc- let yv go play for punjab or rcb. and nehra retire.If possible get Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni it will be great for these Hyderabadi die-hard cricket fans.

    Don't retain Fizz. He is not suppose to be benched another year.
