IPL 2023: Aiden Markram named as captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad

Markram recently led Sunrisers Eastern Cape to the first-ever SA20 title and ended the competition as the third-leading run-maker.

After Kane Williamson was released by Sunrisers prior to the IPL sale last December, the team had to take over as the team's captain.

Williamson skipped the final league match last season and returned to New Zealand for the birth of his child.

While leading Eastern Cape in the SA20, Markram demonstrated that he could succeed as a skipper and a batter.

Sunrisers paid INR 2.6 crore to buy Markram at the 2022 auction.
