IPL 2023 Auction: Big Changes! Sunrisers Hyderabad Full Squad – Retained & Released Players
Sunrisers Hyderabad plan to make wholesale changes to their squad for IPL 2023, as seen by the big moves they made on retention deadline day. They will head into December’s auction with a budget of INR 42.25 crore as they look for new leadership to replace Kane Williamson.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have released their captain Kane Williamson, West Indies power-hitter Nicholas Pooran and bowling all-rounder Romario Shepherd ahead of the IPL 2023 mini-auction.
Williamson was, incidentally, their most expensive player at INR 14 crore and spent eight seasons with the Orange Army. But following an underwhelming IPL 2022 season where they won six matches out of 14 and amassed 12 points, finishing in the 8th spot out of league standings, the Kiwi captain was released. SRH will be in hunt for a new captain for the upcoming season with the options of South Africa power-hitter Aiden Markram and senior India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar at place.
Kane Williamson and Nicholas Pooran were among 12 players released by SRH. “To me, 14 crores is a lot of money for any player,” former coach Tom Moody said a day ahead of the retention deadline on Williamson.
