Hyderabad (EMS). Sunrisers Hyderabad seems to have too much confidence in foreign players. For this reason, it has bought many foreign players for the 2024 season of IPL.

He is capable of changing the match anytime with his aggressive batting. As far as Markram is concerned, he is being considered as the first choice for number. Markram’s presence will strengthen the team’s middle order. Apart from this, Heinrich Klaasen will also be in the middle order. He is adept at playing big shots in the middle overs. Klaasen has a good record on Indian pitches. In such a situation, his presence will strengthen the middle order of the team.
Apart from this, with the arrival of all-rounder Glenn Phillips, the team will also get a better fielder. Apart from this, the team will benefit from the arrival of fast bowler Marco Johnson. In the last IPL, he was successful in taking wickets in the initial matches only.
