Sunrisers proud of their effort, says captain Cameron White
Sunrisers Hyderabad came up short against Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator here but their inaugural Indian Premier League campaign was a successful one, their captain Cameron White has said.
Sunrisers won 10 out of their 16 league matches before losing the knock-out game against Rajasthan Royals at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Wednesday.
“It’s been a great effort from Sunrisers this season. We won 10 games and made the playoffs. With a new franchise and new players coming together, I would call it a fantastic and successful campaign,” White told reporters after their four-wicket loss here.
“With the new auction coming up, I don’t know who will remain with the team. There could be a new set of players, whatever the franchise decides on, we will be strong enough next year,” said White, who shared the captaincy with Kumar Sangakkara this season. While the Sunrisers’ bowling took them to the playoffs, their batting failed to deliver consistently.
