In the 16th season of the Indian Premier League, former India opener Aakash Chopra is sure that Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) would make the playoffs (IPL). The most awaited T20 event will start on March 31 in Ahmedabad when Gujarat Titans take on Chennai Super Kings. In the meanwhile, on April 2 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, SRH will open their 2023 IPL season against the runners-up from the previous year, Rajasthan Royals.
The 2016 IPL champions, who had a dreadful season in 2017, have a fantastic team for the next competition. Aiden Markram, a star from South Africa, has been acquired by them, and he has been named the team’s new captain. Notably, they have also signed up a host of other outstanding athletes, like Mayank Agarwal, Adil Rashid, Heinrich Klaasen, and Vivrant Sharma.
The former cricketer predicted that SRH will finish in the top four in the 2023 IPL after the league stage and believed that Markram’s captaincy will be a great advantage for the Orange Army in a video posted on his official YouTube channel.
“This team ought to make it this time. I think Team Hyderabad is looking absolutely fantastic. I believe that Aiden Markram’s leadership will carry this squad to victory. It’s a strong team.
I see many advantages for SRH: Chopra, Aakash
The former player for Kolkata Knight Riders also offered his thoughts on the individuals who might be selected for Hyderabad’s starting Eleven. Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, and Abhishek Sharma are the three Indian batters in the top three positions, the 45-year-old emphasized. He also mentioned foreign players who are skilled with spin and can adapt to Indian playing conditions.
This team has a lot of strengths, in my opinion. This group appears to be a whole unit. Indian batters are at the top of the list. Two of the three (Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi) are quite talented, and Abhishek Sharma isn’t too shabby either, according to Chopra.
Then, you have Aiden Markram, Harry Brook, and Heinrich Klaasen, three foreign middle-order batters who only perform that function. All three of them are good spin players, and I believe they will all succeed in Indian conditions, he continued.
