Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2023


First of all, this squad is known for its strong roster and spectacular victory in the 2016 IPL final. They also came close to winning in 2018 when they faced CSK in the final, but were unable to match against the legendary Shane Watson, who made the most runs possible. Unlike other IPL crews, SRH was not founded in 2008, but in 2010, however, during their shorter activity, they managed to reach the playoffs six times out of nine seasons.

The real loss for the fans of the team was the replacement of beloved skipper Warner David with Kane Williamson as their new stalwart leader.

Batting order today on Sunrisers Hyderabad is mixed. On the one hand, fans place bets online on their favorite crew that has already proven its ability to be champions. On the other hand, the new captain and lineup can significantly affect the performance of the IPL SRH team 2023.

About Sunrisers Hyderabad

The history begins in 2012, when the Deccan Chargers team ceased to exist due to the fact that Deccan Chronicle, which owns the franchise, went bankrupt and transferred the rights to Sun TV Network. The new team line-up was formed and presented in December 2012.

Sun TV Network, the new owners of the franchise, is India’s biggest amusement network, owning 30 TV channels and 40 fm stations, which allows them to invest the necessary funds in the team and not be afraid of bankruptcy. Already on December 20th, a new SRH logo was introduced, followed by the release of a new team anthem composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar.

At the moment, captain 2023 is Kane Williamson, who replaced the legendary skipper David Warner. Trained by Tom Moody.
The squad played its first season in 2013 with a mix of old Chargers and new players. The first captain was Sangakkara Kumar, but after 9 IPL matches, it was decided to replace him with White Cameron. In their first competitive season, the team made it to the playoffs, but lost to the Rajasthan Royals.

The 2014 period began for the team with the appointment of new captain Dhawan Shikhar and vice-captain Darren Sammy. The first 20 IPL matches of that year were played in the United Arab Emirates due to the Indian elections. The squad performed worse than in its first season, losing eight out of fifteen matches and finishing sixth in the standings without reaching the playoffs.

The 2015 season was a period of great change for the squad. As many as eleven players were fired. It was in this year that Warner David was named captain, and Muttiah Muralitharan, who had a lot of experience in raising first-class bowlers, became the coach. This year the team played better, but won only half of the fourteen matches, which did not allow SRH to reach the playoffs. However, thanks to his outstanding performance, David Warner earned his first orange cap.

2016 traditionally began with an auction and changes in the team. The management decided to keep fifteen players, and nine were fired. The whole season was tight with difficult games against the Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils, but thanks to the efforts of captain David Warner and the performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, SRH managed to reach the final with ten wins and six losses.

The final battle with Royal Challengers Bangalore still excites fans and fans of betting online. The result of the match was the long-awaited victory of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the first athlete to win the purple cap.

Due to the success of the previous season, the management decided not to change the squad much in 2017, in this regard, only six players were fired and 17 people from the previous squad were retained. A total of US$5.6 million was spent at the auction. As per tradition, as the winners of the IPL SRH held the opening ceremony of the tournament. The team started the tournament with a win at Delhi Daredevils, but then lost in several games in a row.

The good news for fans and fans of online betting is the fact that Kumar has kept his purple cap, while permanent skipper David Warner has earned another orange cap.

The 2018 season saw the return to the championship of the Royals and Super Kings, who were banned from the tournament for two years due to the match-rigging scandal. In this regard, before the auction, the IPL committee decided that the teams would be allowed to keep no more than five players from the previous composition. The management of the squad decided to keep only two players, which allowed them to start an auction with three right to match cards (RTM).

Much to the dismay of fans, legendary captain Warner has been forced out of his post due to the ball tampering scandal in Australia. Kane Williamson from New Zealand was appointed to his position. Alex Hales came to the vacant position of batsman. Despite a poor start and poor morale due to the loss of their beloved skipper, the team managed to reach the final but lost to Super Kings in the decider match, finishing in a respectable second place. The new captain kept up the tradition and won the orange cap, just like his predecessor did before.

On the eve of the 2018 auction, the team acquired Shahbaz Nadeem in exchange for Shikhar Dhawan. Also added to the line-up were Martin Guptill, Jonny Bairstow and Wriddhiman Saha. There were 9 players fired. David Warner returned to the IPL following a BCCI ban, but management kept Kane Williamson in the skipper position due to his performance this season. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was appointed as his assistant.

2019 started off with 5 players fired and 18 team members retained, showing a good effectiveness of the lineup. Priyam Garg and Mitchell Marsh were acquired. Tom Moody and Simon Helmot were fired as head coach and vice coach. Trevor Bayliss and Brad Haddin were appointed to their positions, respectively.

Performance in 2021/2020 season

Good news for fans is the return of David Warner to the position of skipper in 2020. The odds for betting skyrocketed at the time due to this news. The squad played the season averagely, winning exactly half of the victories out of 16 matches, which, however, allowed them to reach the playoffs, where they won against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, but lost to the Delhi Capitals at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, which is located in Dubai. It was on the basis of this SRH match that David Warner won the title of top scorer of the edition.

On the eve of the 2021 auction, management fired five players and retained twenty two. Kedar Jadhav, Rahman and J Suchith were bought at the auction. The start of the season was extremely unsuccessful. SRH only won 1 match out of 8, which led to a change in captaincy from Warner to Kane Williamson.
