SunRisers Hyderabad In IPL 2023: Preview, Strongest XI, Schedule – All You Need To Know


Sunrisers Hyderabad are all set to begin to their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 campaign against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday. Led by new skipper and South Africa batter Aiden Markram, SRH will be coached by West Indies legend Brian Lara. Having won the title in 2016, SRH’s biggest issue has been their captaincy, with Australian opener David Warner and charismatic New Zealand batter Kane Williamson having to pay the price for the team’s debacle in the last two editions.

SRH have brought in India batter Mayank Agarwal to boost their top order, and in Harry Brook, they have signed one of the most exciting young players in the game.

Brook, 24, is being touted as the next big thing in England cricket. He is expected to play a huge role in the middle order and comes into his maiden IPL season with 2,432 runs from 99 T20s at a strike rate of 148.32.

Lara, who was the team’s strategic advisor and batting coach in 2022, has replaced Australian Tom Moody as head coach, which could give the West Indian legend more room to experiment with the batting order.

Apart from the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the team has Umran Malik, Jansen, T. Natarajan and Kartik Tyagi in the mix. Not to forget Afghanistan’s left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi, who is in the reserves.

However, the Hyderabad side doesn’t have quality spin-bowling options, with Adil Rashid expected to shoulder the maximum burden, though the England cricketer could get vital support from Sundar, Markram, Abhishek and Mayank Markande.

Apart from Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi, the team does not have an experienced Indian batter in the top order.
