Jonny Bairstow is a hard-hitting English wicketkeeper-batsman. Although he usually plays down the order for his national team, for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, he plays as an opener alongside David Warner. An explosive batsman who looks to go after the bowler and exert pressure on the opposition, Bairstow has already become a fan favourite in his short IPL career. Last season saw him score an impressive 445 runs in just 10 matches. With no national team commitments, this time around, he will surely be looking to make an even bigger impact.
