In the points table, the Hyderabad team was thrown to the tenth position. In the mini-auction held in December 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad bought Pat Cummins, who led Australia to the ODI World Cup title, for a record price of Rs 20.50 crore. He became the second most expensive player in IPL history. In this auction, his compatriot Mitchell Starc Kolkata Knight Ridersbought for Rs 24.75 crore.

Australia won the ODI World Cup last year under the leadership of Cummins. Apart from this, he also won the World Test Championship title. However, surprisingly, Cummins is not the captain of Australia's T20 team. It is likely that the Australian team will play this year's T20 World Cup under the leadership of new captain Mitchell Marsh. (Pat Cummins) Not only that, Sunrisers have given Markram the command of their team Eastern Cape in the South African T20 League. Sunrisers Eastern Cape have been brilliant in winning the title in the last two seasons. In the final of this season, they defeated Durban Super Giants by 89 runs. In the league stage as well, the team won seven out of 10 matches and topped the points table with 33 points.

Cummins withdrew from IPL 2023 to focus on international cricket. Before that he was part of the Kolkata team from 2020 to 2022. Cummins is the third captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last three seasons. In 2022, under Kane Williamson, the team finished eighth. Markram took command last season and now Cummins will be seen doing the same. In the 2023 IPL, Markram was also a flop and managed to score 248 runs at a strike rate of 129 in 14 matches.

Former New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori has been appointed as the new head coach, replacing Brian Lara. In 2023, Lara replaced Tom Moody as the coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
