SRH, the 2016 IPL winners haven’t been able to dominate the terms in the last 2 editions of IPL. Bhuvneshwar Kumar would be eager to make a statement that he is not done yet in the upcoming edition of the tournament. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been missing from the Indian setup since the 2022 T20 WC where the selection panel have opted for young bowlers.
Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) decision to pick Joe Root in IPL 2023 Auction could be decisive as he is someone who can hold one end. Root can be seen playing a lot of franchise cricket where he could also be a part of the leadership group along with skipper Samson & head coach Sangakkara.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar to captain the side
According to ESPNcricinfo, it is believed that Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the side in SRH’s first match against RR on 2nd April (Sunday) at Hyderabad. Aiden Markram, the skipper of SRH is on national duty where South Africa are scheduled to play 2 ODIs against the Netherlands. It is reported that Markram would join the SRH camp on 3rd April.

Fascinating Contest on Cards
Bhuvneshwar Kumar had led SRH in IPL 2019 & 2022 for a total of 7 matches where the team won 2. SRH have got a dangerous bowling lineup present where they can rattle the opponent with their pace & impeccable lines & lengths.
SRH fans would be hoping that the newly appointed head coach Brian Lara gets back the team to winning ways. All eyes would be on the rising right-handed batter Harry Brook who was part of England’s T20 WC 2022 triumph where there would be huge expectations from him.
