Indian T20 League: Hyderabad unveil new kit ahead of mega auction
Hyderabad franchise has revealed their new kit ahead of the mega auction, which will take place on February 12 and 13 in Bangalore. The team is coming off a last position finish in the last season. They could win only three games in 14 games, which was their worst performance since their first season in 2013. The 2016 winners took to Twitter to share pictures of the new kit.
The new kit is much different from the last one. The last one had a combination of Orange and Black with an Orange shirt and black trousers. Adding to this, there was a golden stripe on the shoulders and an orange stripe on the trousers. This time, the kit has gone into a complete overhaul. This time, the franchise has done away with the Black trouser and replaced them with an Orange ones.
Further, the Golden stripe has also been done away with. The sleeves have remained Black but there are Orang dots this year.
The 2016 winners have retained two uncapped Indian players in the form of Abdul Samad and Umran Malik (for 4 crores each) alongside their skipper Kane Williamson (14 crores) . Williamson was appointed as skipper in the middle of the season last year after David Warner had a horrendous time with the bat. The team was also struggling to win games. This year, Warner has been released by the franchise and it is pretty much confirmed that his seven-year association with the team has ended as well.
