Ravichandran Ashwin, an off-spinner for Team India, predicts that Sunrisers Eastern Cape captain
Aiden Markram would also be chosen to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.
The same owners own both the SA20 squad and the IPL franchise.
Prior to the IPL 2023 auction, SRH retained a number of players, including Markram.
Hyderabad will have a new captain for the 2019 IPL season after Kiwi great Kane Williamson was sacked after a disappointing 2022 season.
In the first SA20, Markram performed a fantastic job of leading Sunrisers Eastern Cape to victory.
In 12 games, the all-around batsman scored 366 runs at an average of 33.27 and a strike rate of 127.97.
He eliminated Joburg Super Kings in the second semi-final by smashing 100 off 58 balls.
