Hyderabad will host IPL matches for the first time since 2019. Sunrisers Hyderabad will play seven home matches at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium during the Indian Premier League in 2023.
South African batter Aiden Markram was appointed as the new skipper of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) team for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season. The 28-year-old Markram recently led Sunrisers Eastern Cape to the first-ever SA20 title and finished the competition as the third-leading run-maker.
Abdul Samad was retained by SRH as the franchise keeps hope on the batsman after he showcased his dominating performance in previous seasons.
Aiden Markram will turn out to be one of the important players for the upcoming season after the debate between Mayank Agarwal and Aiden was over, in terms of who will lead the side.
Mayank Agarwal on the other hand is a bonus for SRH as they have successfully got a stable opening pair, both of which individuals have been doing well in previous seasons.
Harry Brook won the T20 World Cup, made his debut for England in all three forms of the game, and was then signed for the first time in the IPL for the astounding sum of INR 13.25 Cr. A young player who has never played in the IPL might seem like a risk, but Brook has already shown the potential to be one of England’s greatest players by the time he departs. The 24-year-old has been expected to perform as a finisher for SRH after hitting at close to 100 in his brief Test career.
