New Delhi: When the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise went to the IPL-2023 auction, the challenge before them was to prepare a new team. This franchise was among those who had said goodbye to the big names of their last season. Kane Williamson captained this team in IPL-2022 but this season the team did not retain him. Something similar happened with Nicholas Pooran. The Sunrisers team was insisting on preparing a young team in the auction and it did so. The command of this team has been handed over to a young man only. My name is Aiden Markram.
That Markram, who recently won the title of the first season of South Africa’s T20 League to another team of the same franchise. He has also been appointed as the captain of the South African team. Now it has to be seen whether this team can end its title drought under the captaincy of Markram or not. This team won its first and only title of IPL in 2016, but after that this team has remained away from the title.

power in batting
This team has such players who have the power to turn the match. Sunrisers have added Mayank Agarwal this season, who has a lot of IPL experience. Earlier it seemed that Mayank would become the captain of the team but it did not happen. However, he will remain one of the main batsmen of the team and as an opener The responsibility of giving a good start will be on him. Apart from Mayank, the team has added young England batsman Harry Brook. This player has shown in his short career what a capable player he is. In the 20 T20 matches played so far, this player has scored runs at a strike rate of 137.77 and has also scored a century.
At the same time, the team has players like Captain Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and Glenn Phillips. Talking about Indian players, the team has a batsman like Rahul Tripathi who was successful in scoring the most runs for the team last season. The season was impressed by his game. At the same time, Washington Sundar can also contribute with the bat. If the team has a good opener in the form of Mayank, then Brook can prove to be the best finisher for this team. In the middle order, Rahul Tripathi and the captain can handle the team well.

bowling is sharp
If the bowling of this team is said to be the strength of Sunrisers, then it will not be wrong because this team has the experience of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while Umran Malik and T. Natarajan have the enthusiasm. South African young fast bowler Marco Janson is also a part of this team and this left arm bowler brings variety to the team. Apart from all these, Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqui, India’s young fast bowler Karthik Tyagi are also there. All these together make the team a great bowling unit.
Last season, a deficiency was seen in this team that this team did not have good spinners. Only Sundar was a good spinner, but this time the team has joined England’s best spinner Adil Rashid. Leg-spinner Mayank Markande, who was a part of Mumbai Indians, is also with this team. Apart from this, Akil Hussain of West Indies will also strengthen the spin attack of the team.

lack of backup and experience
If this team is seen then this team looks balanced. This team has capable players for their first choice playing-11. If the team’s first choice players like- Mayank, Rahul, Brook, Sundar, Natarajan, Klaasen, Umran, Markram Phillips leave, then this team will not face any problem, but if someone gets injured, then the team will have their place. There are no players like him for the taking. The backup players are not so talented and experienced that they can take their place. In such a situation, the team management will have to use its main players for the whole season in such a way that they do not get tired nor are they afraid of injury.
Apart from this, there seems to be a lack of experience with the team, especially among Indian players. Apart from Mayank and Bhuvneshwar, there is no Indian in this team who has experience. Rahul Tripathi has been playing IPL for a long time but still he makes some mistakes. If Indian players are seen in the backup of the team, then no such name is visible which is big. Also, except for a few of the main players, no one has much experience and in such a situation, maintaining consistency in good performance can prove to be a challenge for this team.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Full Squad:Aiden Markram (Captain), Abdul Samad, Fazalhaq Farooqui, Karthik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Janson, Washington Sundar, T. Natarajan, Umran Malik, Rahul Tripathi, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal.
