IPL 2024 SRH Captain: The new season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to start from March 22. But before that, major changes are being made by IPL franchises in their teams. Meanwhile, big news has come out from the camp of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). In fact, 2016 champion team Sunrisers Hyderabad has handed over the command of the team to captain Pat Cummins, who made Australia the world champion last year and has removed Aiden Markram, who took command last season, from the captaincy. Apart from this, SRH has also changed its head coach and bowling coach.

The most surprising thing about the decision to hand over the command of SRH to Cummins is that Cummins is not the captain of Australia's T20 team. There is a possibility that the Australian team will play the T20 World Cup this year under the leadership of new captain Mitchell Marsh. Because Cummins is currently playing under the captaincy of Marsh in the ongoing T20 series against New Zealand. Whereas Markram has been consistently performing well for the franchise. SRH has handed over the command of its team Eastern Cape to Markram in the South African T20 League. Sunrisers Eastern Cape had performed brilliantly in the last two seasons and won titles. Despite this, Markram was removed from the captaincy.

Cummins had withdrawn his name from IPL 2023

It is noteworthy that Cummins did not play in IPL 2023 held last year. He had withdrawn his name from the league to concentrate on international cricket. Before that, he was a part of the Kolkata team from 2020 to 2022.

Cummins will be the third captain of SRH in the last three seasons.

Let us tell you that Cummins is the third captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last three seasons. In 2022, the team finished eighth under the captaincy of Kane Williamson. He was released before the 2023 season. Last season, Markram took the command and now Cummins will be seen doing it.

SRH bought Cummins for 20.50 crores

Let us tell you that in the mini auction in December 2023, Sunrisers had bought Pat Cummins for a record price of Rs 20.50 crore. He became the second most expensive player in IPL history.

Daniel Vettori will be the new head coach of SRH

Apart from the captain, Sunrisers Hyderabad has also changed the head coach. In place of Brian Lara, former New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori will now take over the responsibility of head coach of the team.

Dale Steyn's leave

Apart from the change in captain and head coach, SRH has also changed its bowling coach. Now former Kiwi all-rounder James Franklin will be the new bowling coach of Sunrisers. Franklin will replace Dale Steyn of South Africa. Let us tell you that Steyn was made the bowling coach of Hyderabad in 2022. But this year he will not be able to be a part of IPL due to personal reasons.

Sunrisers will play the first match against Kolkata

Let us tell you that the Sunrisers team will start its IPL 2024 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. This match will be played on 23 March. After this the team will play a match against Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad on 27th March.
