Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most-watched cricket leagues in the world. Every year, it breaks numerous TRP records as some of the biggest names in the cricket world participate in this league with 10 teams (as of 2023). The league’s growing popularity can be understood by the fact that IPL started with eight teams back in 2008.
However, in the coming years, we have seen a series of new teams replacing the old ones. One such team that has garnered a lot of attention is Sunrisers Hyderabad, which was founded in 2012 after the termination of Deccan Chargers and made its debut in the IPL 2013 season.
