The SunRisers Hyderabad, often abbreviated as SRH are a franchise cricket team based in Hyderabad, Telangana, that plays in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise is owned by Kalanithi Maran of the Sun TV Network and was founded in 2012 after the Hyderabad-based Deccan Chargers were terminated by the IPL. The team is currently captained by Kane Williamson and coached by Tom Moody. The primary homeground of the team is the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium. The team made their first IPL appearance in 2013, where they reached the playoffs, eventually finishing in fourth place. The SunRisers won their maiden IPL title in the 2016 season, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore. Previous season’s runners- up Sunrisers Hyderabad will be boosted by the return David Warner, who didn’t feature in the last edition in the aftermath of the Newlands ball-tampering scandal. Hyderabad have retained most of their core team. However, they traded Shikhar Dhawan for Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem, but most of the other positions had been retained by the respective players in the last season.
