Aiden Markram’s stocks are continuously rising. After leading the Sunrisers Eastern Cape to a title-winning campaign in 2023 SA20, the South African has been appointed to lead the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2023.
An SRH official revealed that the franchise management, in consultation with head coach Brian Lara, decided to make Aiden Markram the skipper after his astounding performance in the recent SA20, in which the South African led the Sunrisers Eastern Cape side to the title.

“I am open to taking up the SRH leadership if it comes my way, but I will not mind if it does not. I am prepared, but it is up to the management,” Markram told Cricbuzz recently in Johannesburg.
Markram has good leadership skills. It was under him that the South African team won their only World Cup trophy beating Pakistan in the final of the under-19 World Cup.
Additionally, Delhi Capitals have announced David Warner as the skipper in place of Rishabh Pant. “David will be our captain, and Axar Patel will be his deputy,” said a member of the ownership group of Delhi Capitals.
