Sunrisers Hyderabad’s IPL Journey has been a mixed bag of happiness and sorrow. After winning their maiden IPL in 2016 under David Warner’s captaincy, the team has failed to live up to the expectations of their fans in subsequent editions.

Here’s a look at 4 players who can make an impact to change the fortunes of SRH:
Pat Cummins 
The Australian Test captain own the year 2023 by winning several trophies and is now rated as the one of best captains in the game of cricket. SRH team had an excellent auction and bought Cummins for a whopping Rs 20.75 crore. The team management has full faith on their newly appointed captain to showcase his class in IPL 2024.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Rated as one of the best swing bowlers in cricket, Bhuvi has been performing consistently for SRH since his inclusion in the team in 2013. Bhuvneshwar is an experienced campaigner who won the purple cap twice in 2016 and 2017. He will add much value to SRH bowling line-up in IPL 2024. He took 16 wickets in IPL 2023.
Heinrich Klaasen 
This South African batsman is rated as one of the clean strikers of the cricket ball. Klaasen can hit big sixes as he plays spin bowling very well. He can produce match-winning results with his hitting ability and strength. He had a breakthrough year in IPL 2023 and scored 448 runs including a century against RCB. 
Travis Head
A destructive batsman in his own right, Travis Head can decimate bowling attacks when he is on a song. SRH made a good choice by investing in Travis Head at the auctions. Travis Head can provide good starts with the bat for SRH. 

With appointing Pat Cummins as their captain, SRH’s fortunes of winning their 2nd IPL trophy rests upon their captain and it will interesting to see what Pat Cummins has in his armoury which will help his team to have a good outing in IPL 2024.
