IPL 2022 Auction: After a slow start to the day, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) ended up buying 10 players on the opening day of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 auction on Saturday.

SRH had a rocky season last year, where they finished at the bottom of the table with just six points. In the middle of the campaign, SRH had sacked their skipper David Warner and appointed Kane Williamson for the role. What followed only made SRH’s relationship with Warner sour. The Australian cricketer was then hardly given a chance in the second leg of the tournament in the UAE.

Under Warner’s captaincy, SRH won their maiden IPL title in 2016, which remains their only trophy so far in the tournament.
