Aiden Markram To Lead SRH in IPL 2023


Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has appointed South African batsman Aiden Markram as the new captain of their franchise for the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sunrisers Hyderabad retained 12 players before the mini-auction last year, and Aiden Markram was one of those 12.

Before the mini-auction, Sunrisers Hyderabad dropped their key player and former captain Kane Williamson from the team. After a disappointing performance last season, Hyderabad took such a drastic decision. The captaincy of the group fell vacant after Williamson.

In the mini-auction, Hyderabad bought Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal to strengthen the batting department of the team. Although there were rumors of Mayank Agarwal being given the command of the team, but finally putting an end to all the speculations, the Hyderabad team has handed over the big responsibility to Markram.

Markram was bought by SRH during the IPL 2022 mega auction for INR 2.60 Crore. Last season, he was impressed with the bat, scoring 381 runs in 12 innings at an average of 47.63, and a strike rate of 139.05 including three half-centuries.

This Year, Markram has captained SRH’s associate franchise, Sunrisers Eastern Cape. With his outstanding contribution Sunrisers was crowned champions in the first edition of the SA T20.

He played 14 matches for SRH this season and scored 381 runs. He scored a wonderful century against Joburg Superkings in the semi-finals & helped his team to enter the finals and later won the title by defeating Pretoria Capitals in the finals.
