Ever since the beginning of the IPL, there has always been a team from Hyderabad represented in the mix. From 2008, when the tournament started, to 2012, it was the Deccan Chargers, owned by the Deccan Chronicle. However, ahead of the 2013 season, the Deccan Chargers ceased to exist as an IPL team on the orders of the IPL authorities, who decided that the owners of the Chargers were undergoing some financial issues that could not be dealt with satisfactorily.

Both iterations of the Hyderabad-based team has won an IPL title each, proving that it has the capability to win titles, but there are some bowlers who seem to have done well against them when they have met out in the field.
