Led by Australia's David Warner, the Hyderabad-based won the title in 2016 and finished runners-up two years later. The side boasts a good mix of young and experienced players and the upcoming season is not going to be different. Ahead of their IPL 2021 opening match, SRH's official Twitter handle shared a video interacting with their new signings Kedar Jadhav, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Jagadeesha Suchith after team's first practice session.
Sharing the video, the franchise tweeted: "We caught up with the new Risers on the block during our first training session yesterday! #OrangeOrNothing #OrangeArmy #IPL2021 @JadhavKedar @Mujeeb_R88 @Suchithj27".
Jadhav, after being released by CSK, was roped in for his base price of Rs 2 crore, Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman came at a bargain of Rs 1.5 crore, while Suchith was bought for Rs 30 lakh at the mini-auction held in February this year.
"Irrespective of the opposition, it's important to get your basics covered in whatever time we have left in the first game. Today, we have just finished our first training session and the boys had a wonderful hit. The pitches were very good to start on. Overall, it was a complete session, " Jadhav said, shedding light on his first practice session with the SRH squad.
