The David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad got off to a poor start in the Indian Premier League 2020 edition, but later, found their footing, eventually finishing in the third position. The franchise did not release many players, keeping their core group intact, and at the 2021 auction, only decided to buy three players.

SRH were still able to make headlines after buying former Chennai Super Kings allrounder Kedar Jadhav at his base price of 2 crore. Jadhav had a forgettable season in the UAE - and when his name was initially called, no franchise raised their paddle.

But SRH got an opportunity to sign him again at the acceleration section of the auction, and they bought the player without being challenged by any other franchises.

SRH also bought Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman for 1.5 crore who was released by Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab), and J Suchith for 30 lakh.
