SunRisers Hyderabad on Thursday named South Africa batter Aiden Markram as their captain for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Markram tasted success with the SRH’s sister franchise, Sunrisers Eastern Cape, leading them to the inaugural SA 20 title recently. Last season, Markram scored 381 runs in 14 matches for SRH at an average of 47.63. SRH will begin a new era in the IPL, having let go of stalwarts Kane Williamson and David Warner in the past couple of seasons.
“THE. WAIT. IS. OVER. #OrangeArmy, say hello to our new captain Aiden Markram,” SRH posted a video on Twitter.
