Notably, SRH roped in Aiden Markram in 2022 after playing for the Punjab Kings in the 2021 edition. Additionally, the side did not retain former skipper Kane Williamson prior to the auction nor did the side re-acquire the services of the Kiwi batter in the bidding arena.
Aiden Markram recently won the inaugural SA20 title in South Africa with the Sunrisers Eastern Cape. In 12 matches, the flamboyant batter amassed 366 runs which included a century in the top-tier league. Moreover, Hyderabad boasts quite a few high-profile cricketers namely- Mayank Agarwal, Umran Malik, and Glenn Phillips among others.
