IPL 2023 Auction: Out of the ten teams that will be seen playing in IPL 2023, only one team is seen as such, which will not only have to buy players in the auction, but will also have to take care of who to make its captain. We are talking about Sunrisers Hyderabad, whose captaincy was earlier in the hands of Kane Williamson. But now SRH has released him and Kane Williamson is back in the auction. Although Punjab Kings have also released their captain Mayank Agarwal, but Punjab has already announced that Shikhar Dhawan will lead their team next year. Meanwhile, there is a possibility that Sunrisers Hyderabad can play a big bet on Mayank Agarwal. Somewhere in his mind it would also be that Mayank Agarwal can also take over the command of the team. Irfan Pathan, the former fast bowler of the Indian team, has definitely pointed this out. But nothing has been said clearly.
In the year 2022, Punjab Kings made Mayank Agarwal their captain
When KL Rahul parted ways with Punjab Kings ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction, Punjab named Mayank Agarwal as their new captain. Not only this, he was also given a hefty amount of Rs 12 crore while retaining him. But Mayank Agarwal was not only not successful as a captain, but the good batting he was doing also kept on going. Mayank Agarwal played 13 matches for Punjab in the year 2022 IPL and only 196 runs are in his account. His batting average was 16.33, which cannot be called right in any way. However, when Mayank Agarwal joined Punjab Kings for the first time in the year 2018, he was performing consistently well with the bat. The journey of Punjab Kings ended at the sixth position in IPL 2022. Now talking on the Star Sports show Game Plan, former fast bowler Irfan Pathan has said that the Sunrisers Hyderabad team can bet on Mayank Agarwal.
Irfan Pathan expressed possibility about Mayank Agarwal
Irfan Pathan has said that SRH would like to rope in Mayank Agarwal as they need an opener. They also do not have experienced players like Kane Williamson this time, who used to guide the team and bat at any number when needed. Irfan Pathan hinted that Mayank Agarwal has captained an IPL team before, he plays with a lot of freedom and the SRH management might be thinking of taking him on as a leader. Although later he also said that let’s see what happens. The special thing is that before this time’s auction, the team of Sunrisers Hyderabad team has the most money left. 42.25 crore is left with SRH. This team has the ability to buy whoever they want. The reason for the team having so much money is that it has released most of its expensive players. It remains to be seen who the Sunrisers Hyderabad team appoints as captain for the next season, its cards can be seen opening on December 23, when the mini auction for IPL 2023 will take place.
