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.
By only releasing half of their overseas contingent, SRH was able to collect about INR 35 Cr which aided them for the mini-auction budget. More than one-third of that was spent on the inexperienced and young Harry Brook. Heinrich Klaasen, who has been in excellent form, has taken the position of Nicholas Pooran. Adil Rashid was acquired by SRH in order to cover the wrist spin gap created by Rashid Khan’s absence the previous year. Mayank Agarwal, who considerably strengthens that top order is also a part.
Harry Brook can turn out to be one of the lethal and most dangerous batsman in IPL for SRH. He 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.
