Famously known as the “Eagles” and “Orange Army”, Sunrisers Hyderabad made their debut in 2013 as one of the ten franchise cricket teams in the Indian Premier League. As the name implies, the team represents Hyderabad and is owned by the SUN group (Kalanithi Maran).
New Zealand national team’s captain Kane Williamson is currently leading the team, the team also consists of young rising stars such as Abdul Samad and Umran Malik on board. The team won its first-ever IPL title in 2016 by defeating Royal Challengers Rajasthan in the final match by a total of 8 runs.
Regarding the acquisition by CARS24, K Shanmugam (CEO, Sunrisers Hyderabad) said, “Our entire team couldn’t be more excited about being sponsored by a brand as young and revolutionary as CARS24”.
Shanmugam further adds that CARS24’s international appeal, market leadership on the back of strong technology, when combined with their highly skilled team and wide fan following, will only bring in the best results for both brands.
Also, Shanmugam firmly believes that with world-class cricketers including Brain Lara, Tom Moody, and Hemang Badani on the coach’s list, the team is returning to the game being stronger than ever before.
