The Sunrisers Hyderabad squad’s new captain for the next Indian Premier League (IPL) season is none other than Pat Cummins, the captain of the Australian cricket team and a fast bowler. After three years, Cummins is now the team’s fourth captain after this choice.

Following his departure from Kolkata Knight Riders, the 30-year-old became the second most expensive player in league history when he signed with Sunrisers Hyderabad for an incredible Rs 20.50 crore during the IPL auction in December of last year.

The Sunrisers placed last in the league standings the previous season, with Aiden Markram leading them. Although leading Sunrisers Eastern Cape, the Sunrisers’ affiliate team, to a SA20 league championship this year, Markram lost his position as the franchise’s captain for the Indian Premier League.

Following David Warner’s departure in 2021—after leading the Sunrisers to their only IPL championship in 2016—the team has had numerous skipper changes. Following the team’s eighth-place finish in the 2022 season, Kane Williamson was let go. The previous year, Markram was captain.

With triumphs against India in the finals of the ODI World Cup and the World Test Championship last year, Cummins was well acclaimed for leading Australia in these competitions. Now, he must lead Sunrisers Hyderabad. On March 23, Eden Gardens will host their inaugural game against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Along with Daniel Vettori, who took Brian Lara’s place as head coach ahead of the 2017 season, Sunrisers Hyderabad also welcomed him.
