IPL 2022: Sunrisers Hyderabad Bounces Back With International Players

Indian Premier League 2022 is starting on March 26, and a lot of teams are ready to bring in their best performances. The game will start with a match between two past multiple champions, the Chennai Super Kings against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

This year’s IPL is also the best opportunity for the Sunrisers Hyderabad to finally prove their worth after their underwhelming performance in IPL 2021. Their last year’s performance was deemed the worst in IPL history by finishing last at the eighth place where they won 3 out of 14 matches.

The team took a very hard fall from their performance in 2016 where they swept the competition with first place. SRH captain of IPL 2021 David Warner was then stripped off of his title and dropped from the team.

The team brought in a few players from overseas who will hopefully help them get closer to reaching the top.

Sunrisers retained and let go of some of its players in the mega auction. Unfortunately, SRH has to let go Rashid Khan and David Warner for IPL this year. Also leaving the team is mentor WS Laxman to pursue a head role for the NCA.
