Hyderabad: The wait and the speculations are over as Sunrisers Hyderabad name Aiden Markram as their new captain for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. Having led Sunrisers franchise Eastern Cape to the title in the inaugural SA20 league, Markaram was always going to be a frontrunner. Under the new leader, SRH would like to turn their fortunes in this season after not living up to expectations over the past three years. Markram also becomes the fifth South African player to lead an IPL team.
