For the 2018 season, the Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were reinstated in the league after serving a two-year suspension from the competition due to the involvement of their players in the 2013 IPL betting scandal.

SRH Coach and Captain:
Sunrisers Hyderabad has an issue with their consistency in holding the Captaincy for the team. David Warner was the captain when the team clinched the championship title in 2016 season however he had to step down as BCCI did not allow him to play in IPL 2018 following the Australian ball-tampering controversy. In 2018, Kane Williamson’s was handed over the captaincy and he did fairly good but there was no fire power from the captain which needed for the team to beat the title in his leadership. The team dynamics, aggression needed to win the title so Kane Williamson was released by SRH last year.
Aiden Markram has been given the responsibility to captain the side this year 2023 and hope he brings good fortunes to the team and the winning combination is set right for the SRH team much in advance.
Coach Brian Lara’s intellectual and experience could bring SRH into the playoffs in this year’s tournament alongside the most talented Muttiah Muralidharan, Dale Steyn and Hemang Badani.
