The David Warner-led Hyderabad side picked up India batsman Kedar Jadhav for 2 crores in the IPL auction in Chennai on Thursday. The experienced middle-order batsman’s ability to clear boundaries will bolster the already strong Hyderabad squad.
Apart from Jadhav, SRH also landed J Suchit for 30 lakhs and Afghanistan cricketer Mujeeb ur Rahman for 1.5 crores.
With Rashid Khan already in the squad, the addition of his compatriot Mujeeb will make Hyderabad a force to reckon with.
Under Warner’s leadership the Hyderabad side reached the playoffs in the previous edition in the UAE. The Hyderabad outfit eventually lost to runner-up Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 2. Hyderabad have won the coveted trophy under Warner’s leadership in 2016.
