SRH new jersey

The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will be nothing like before; the maiden 10-teams affair in the T20 tournament will begin in Bengaluru when franchises face each other in a high-intense bidding war, slated to take place later this weekend. While IPL new entry Gujarat franchise revealed their official name Gujarat Titans on Wednesday, the 2016 IPL champions Sunrisers Hyderabad unveiled the team's jersey for the upcoming edition.

The Hyderabad franchise has continued with Orange and black colour shades for the upcoming season. The new jersey picture was revealed by the official Twitter handle with a caption, "Presenting our new jersey. The #OrangeArmour for the #OrangeArmy," along with the picture. The franchise roped in Cars24 as their front jersey sponsor earlier this month.

SRH's earlier title sponsor JK Lakshmi decided to part ways with the team. Sunrisers Hyderabad had a disappointing outing in the 14th edition of IPL, finishing on the bottom of the points table and facing criticism for sacking Australian batter David Warner and later ruling him out of the playing squad well. The franchise is making overhaul changes to this edition to seek a better tour in the upcoming edition.

The franchise had an abysmal outing in the IPL 2021, where they ended up at the bottom of the points table after winning only three matches in the league stage. Not only this, the Orange Army faced a lot of backlash for sacking David Warner as their captain and then unceremoniously dumping him from the playing XI as well. The Hyderabad franchise has retained the services of Kane Williamson (12 crores), while young prodigies all-rounder Abdul Samad from Jammu and Kashmir and Umran Malik are the other retained players.

Both the players have been retained at the value of Rs. 4 crores each. SRH have an available purse of Rs 68 crore, which can be utilised at the auction. In terms of coaching, Tom Moody has been trusted once again for the head coach role, whereas Muttiah Muralitharan remains as the Spin-Bowling coach. Brain Lara, the batting stalwart, has been appointed as batting coach, Dale Steyn as fast bowling coach, Simon Katich as the assistant coach, and Hemang Badani as the fielding coach.
