The Sri Lankan cricketing legend – Kumar Sangakkara – was the first captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Since he was the captain of the Deccan Chargers side, he was directly posted as the skipper in SRH too.

The southpaw managed to score just 15 runs in the first match but made the team win by 22 runs using his captaincy skills. He culminated his IPL career in 2013 in SRH’s attire after playing 71 matches and has 1687 runs with ten fifties.

Sangakkara was appointed as the President of the MCC in 2019. He was the first non-British member to hold the post. He contributes to the sport in all the ways he could, as he is also a commentator. In 2021, he was named as the Director of Cricket of Rajasthan Royals in the IPL.
