On Thursday, May 4, SunRisers Hyderabad skipper Aiden Markram noted that his team needed to start producing consistently strong cricket if they wanted to make the semifinals in IPL 2023.
After eight matches in the IPL 2023, SunRisers Hyderabad have only managed three victories, putting them in the bottom three of the league. SunRisers Hyderabad have underachieved in IPL 2023 despite boasting a potent batting team that has two top-tier local players (Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi).
Aiden Markram, captain, scored 132 runs in 7 games despite being in incredible form in SA20 & the international cricket season before to the IPL season.
Only Abhishek Sharma (139 runs in 6 games) and Heirich The Dutchman (153 runs in 6 games) have been reliable scorers for the SunRisers.
We have to go back to playing consistent cricket, and tonight is our chance to do so. Batting has to improve, bowling was excellent, but we’ve disappointed using our bat,” Aiden Markram remarked during the toss before their home game versus Kolkata Knight Riders.
Kartik Tyagi returned to SunRisers Hyderabad after recovering from an injury, but Umran Malik was released due to a lackluster start to the 2023 Indian Premier League campaign.
There is still hope for SunRisers Hyderabad to make the playoffs, but they must be successful in winning at least five of their remaining six games.

Bad At Swinging A Bat
In the wake of the Orange Army’s third straight loss in the Indian the premier League (IPL) 2023 match between the Capitals of Delhi and the Sunrisers Hyderabad team at the Gujarat International Stadium, Hyderabad, captain Aiden Markram wasted no time in laying into his team’s batters.
To emphasize, SRH required 145 to gain control but only scored 137 for 6, resulting in a 7-run loss. Markram, speaking after the match, criticized the batting unit’s performance, saying that despite the fine work of the bowlers, they deserved to lose. However, due to the batting unit’s poor showing, the bowlers too must accept loss.

Rolled Over By Self-Control
I’m a terrible batter. Unfortunately, this cricket team lacks the necessary focus and enthusiasm to win. To be really liberated and improved upon, we must revisit our past.
It’s challenging because even if you say the correct things, men still need to believe them. If we can play the kind of cricket we’re interested in without making any major mistakes, it’ll be much easier to get some shut-eye.
Tonight, we didn’t try hard enough, and that’s why we’re failing. That’s something I’d really want to accomplish, Markram stated; “men need to work hard” at inspiring the squad.
“I’m quite happy with how they handled everything; they kept it simple and made good use of the resources they had. Adding some little optimism, he said, “I guess our bowling is not deserving to be placed on the losing side.”
