IPL 2024: Sunrisers Hyderabad Appointed Pat Cummins as New Captain

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captaincy sees a change for IPL 2024. Aiden Markram, who led the team in IPL 2023 (finishing 10th), was recently replaced by Pat Cummins. While Markram secured back-to-back titles for the Sunrisers Eastern Cape in SA20, Cummins' World Cup victory in India might have influenced SRH's decision.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have appointed Australia's Pat Cummins as captain for the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League (IPL). His success at the helm for Australia in Tests and ODIs winning the World Test Championship (WTC) and World Cup last year has seemingly worked in his favour. Aiden Markram was the captain of the team last year but the team couldn't qualify for the playoffs finishing at the last position with only four wins from 14 matches.

Interestingly, Markram was appointed at the helm after he led the Sunrisers' franchise to title in the inaugural edition of SA20. Moreover, he defended the title as well this year in the tournament and it was expected that the South African might get yet another chance to prove his mettle as captain in the cash-rich league. However, SRH has moved on quickly from him and is expecting Cummins to lead them to the trophy for the first time since 2016.
