IPL 2024 will witness a battle among 10 teams once again. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will eye their second trophy in IPL 2024. Aiden Markram is the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad and might lead the side in the next season too.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will aim for a comeback in the IPL 2024 season after a poor show in the last edition. The franchise was the worst performer in last season. With just 4 wins across 14 points, SRH finished in the last 10th spot in the points table.
Despite the team’s miserable show, Heinrich Klaasen was a standout batter for the side. The South African wicketkeeper shattered 448 runs in 12 matches at an average of 49+. He also shattered a century in the tournament.
Rahul Tripathi was next on the list with 273 runs. However, he gave a below-par average. Mayank Agarwal was next with 270 runs. Skipper Aiden Markram also flopped with the bat, hitting 248 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad released 6 players from their squad ahead of the IPL 2024 auction. Harry Brook and Adil Rashid were some big names that the franchise evicted from their team. During the auction, SRH had the maximum funds with themselves.
SRH bought 6 players during the Indian Premier League 2024 auction. Their top pick was Pat Cummins at Rs. 20.50 crore. Notably, Cummins also broke the record in the IPL auction and became the second-costliest player ever to be bought. SRH also bought Aussie opener Travis Head for Rs. 6.80 crores.
Wanindu Hasaranga was another prominent spinner that SRH picked into their squad. They picked him for Rs. 1.5 crore. Jaydev Unadkat, Jhathavedh Subramanyan, and Akash Singh were the other three players whom SRH picked into their squad.
SRH joined the Indian Premier League in the 2013 season. They reached the playoffs in the 2013 season. However, they did not grab a spot in the top four in the next two seasons. In IPL 2016, Sunrisers Hyderabad scripted history by winning the IPL trophy. They crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final.
In the 2018 edition, they ended as runners-up and lost the final to Chennai Super Kings. They consistently reached playoffs from 2016 to 2020 seasons. However, for the last few seasons, the playoff spot has been like an oasis in the desert for SRH. They have consistently failed to reach playoffs since the 2021 season and finished in the last few spots.
SRH was the worst performer in the last season and they will aim for a big comeback in the next season. With the addition of powerful names like Pat Cummins and Travis Head, SRH will be a much stronger team in the Indian Premier League 2024.
