One of the finest batters in the modern game, and a true gentleman, Kane Williamson, was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) ahead of the India Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction. The Kiwi batter took over the job from David Warner after the Australian opener’s controversial exit from the team last year. With Willamson at the helm, Hyderabad had hoped to reach the heights of 2016 when they had won the IPL title, but the franchise couldn’t even qualify for the playoffs.
