Although the auction for the upcoming IPL 2023 will be a regular auction as opposed to a mega auction, the excitement is still sky-high. Sunrisers Hyderabad started their IPL 2022 campaign with two back-to-back losses.

However, the men in orange bounced back and won their next 5 games on the trot. At that time, it looked as if they could finish among the top 2 teams in IPL 2022 points table. However, the team panicked when they had to be calm. In their next 7 games, they could win just a single match and be eliminated.

A lot of factors were responsible for SRHs sudden dip in performance. The biggest of them was the inability of their captain Kane Williamson to bind the team together during crunch situations. While Sunrisers Hyderabad failed to qualify for the playoffs, a few of their players performed exceptionally well in the IPL 2022.

Rahul Tripathy has garnered a lot of attention in the IPL 2022, courtesy of his splendid performance with the bat. He got a big jump when SRH placed the highest bidding amount of 8.5 crores to acquire the prolific batsmen. His previous IPL prize money was just 60 lakhs.

Rahul Tripathi fired from all cylinders this IPL, scoring 413 runs in 14 innings, at an average of 38 and strike rate of close to 160. He was instrumental in taking SRH to victory in a few initial games. His performance in IPL 2022 has given enough reasons for Sunrisers Hyderabad to acquire him ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
