Bhuvneshwar Kumar another option for SRH? 

Former captain of SRH, Bhuvneshwar knows the franchise inside out. Having led the Orange Army in six matches of IPL 2019, Bhuvi knows what it takes to captain an IPL side. He also led the franchise after Williamson returned home during the ending phase of IPL 2022. So, he could be a good choice for a make-shift captain.
