New Delhi: Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman said on Thursday that he feels the side has abundance of talent and potential to come out on top in the upcoming Indian Premier League season 9 that starts from Saturday.
"We got abundance of potential and talent in this team and if we play to our potential, we will achieve our goal which is to win the IPL," Laxman said.
Sunrisers bought some big name players in world cricket this time including veteran Yuvraj Singh.
Laxman hoped that the flamboyant batsman Yuvraj, who sustained an injury during the recent ICC World T20, would join the team soon.
"It's unfortunate that he (Yuvraj Singh) has injured his ankle during the match against Australia. But, I am sure that he will be joining us very quickly sooner than later. I am hoping that our physio will be looking after him, Laxman said.
Skipper David Warner too felt that the SRH team is well balanced and talent of world potential. "Obviously, on the back of what Laxman (team mentor VVS Laxman) said, we have got talent of world potential. Definitely, we got great balance in the side," he said. Pointing to the presence of stars like Shikhar Dhawan and Ashish Nehra, he said the team has the ammunition in batting and bowling to make matters difficult for its rivals.
Sunrisers will open their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 12.
