New Delhi.Sunrisers Hyderabad are continuously struggling in IPL 2023. The team has won only 2 matches out of 7 and lost 5 matches. Hyderabad has lost its last three consecutive matches and with this it seems to be losing crores. In fact, in the auction, Hyderabad had bought Aiden Markram for Rs 2.60 crore and handed over the command of the team to him, but under the leadership of Markram, Hyderabad is not able to return to the winning track.
In the opening match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took command, but in the second match of Hyderabad, Markram returned and then won 2 consecutive victories against Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, but after that Hyderabad is continuously losing the match. Even Hyderabad lost at home for the third time.

Hyderabad lost again at home
After Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians, now Delhi Capitals also defeated Markram’s team at home. Delhi defeated the hosts by 7 runs and the biggest villain of this defeat of Hyderabad proved to be the captain himself, who could not support the team when needed. Talking about Markram’s performance so far, he joined the team late and got out on zero in his very first match of the league.

Captain could not maintain the rhythm
After getting out on zero, Markram scored an unbeaten 37 and 50 in the next two matches, but the captain could not maintain his rhythm and could only score 22, 12, and 3 runs in the next three matches. Against Mumbai, Chennai and now Delhi, his performance kept on falling. Hyderabad had joined them by spending Rs 2.60 crore.

Hyderabad was cheated of crores!
Hyderabad not only included Markram in the team, but also handed over the command of the team, but even then he is not able to change the story of Hyderabad. While he was in strong form before coming to IPL. He played an inning of 175, 51 not out in ODIs against Netherlands, but his form derailed as soon as he started his campaign in IPL. In such a situation, Hyderabad got a loss of Rs 2.60 crore in a way, because they are neither able to improve the performance of the team nor themselves.
