IPL 2024: World champion captain now has the title of Sunrisers Hyderabad…

The Uncut

Chennai: Kangaroo captain Pat Cummins, who made Australia a two-time world champion last year in 2023, has rejuvenated Sunrisers Hyderabad after taking charge of it in IPL 2024.

Last year it was at the tenth position in the points table

Sunrisers Hyderabad took a big decision in the auction before the start of the season and added Pat Cummins to their team at a hefty price of 20.75 crores. Before the start of the season, the command of the team was handed over to the world champion captain and this decision proved to bring golden success for the team.

Adopted aggressive style in batting

Under Cummins’ captaincy, Sunrisers Hyderabad made fundamental changes in their strategy in the league phase. Hyderabad’s bowling was already strong, so they changed their strategy to add edge to their batting and adopted an aggressive approach. The opening pair of Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma thrashed the opposition bowlers with their bats.

After performing brilliantly in the league stage, Hyderabad finished second in the points table. After this, it had to face defeat against KKR in the first qualifier match. But Pat Cummins’ team did not let the second chance to reach the final go waste and defended the target of 176 runs and won by a margin of 36 runs and entered the final for the third time.

There is a chance to win the IPL trophy while captaining for the first time

Under Cummins’ captaincy, Australia defeated India in the World Test Championship immediately after the IPL last year and became the champion. After this, in November, they defeated India in the final and became the world champion for the second time in six months. In such a situation, now he has a great opportunity to win the title while captaining for the first time in the world’s biggest T20 league and he will not let it go waste.
