Subramaniam Badrinath | Indian cricket team |
Subramaniam Badrinath played two Test matches for India.

Former Tamil Nadu batsman Subramaniam Badrinath who switched over his base to Vidarbha for the last season has made another switch this year as he has decided to play for Hyderabad for the upcoming season. He will also be leading the team as he is the most experienced campaigner in the roster.

This will not be his first stint as captain as he also led Vidarbha last year in presence of Wasim Jaffer, Vidarbha qualified for the quarter-final stage of the tournament. This year Badrinath will have a tough task as Hyderabad team who is in the group C has not done well in past few tournaments and he will have a big challenge to turn the things around for them.

“Yes, it’ll be pretty challenging and I’m game for it, I was doing the same job for Vidarbha and am glad they made it to the knockouts of the Ranji Trophy and also reached quarters in one-dayers and T20s. It was a big learning experience for me and I’m ready to take up this challenge.

“I agree that it is never easy to form a winning combination overnight. The entire process needs methodical planning and that has to be executed properly. I’ve certain plans in mind and I’m confident that I’ll have a great time with the Hyderabad team.” said Badrinath.

Badrinath had some logical reasons to choose Hyderabad over Vidarbha for this season as he said “First of all, travelling from Hyderabad to Chennai will be easier than it was from Nagpur,” he said. “I initially thought of coming back to Chennai and play for Tamil Nadu. But since we’ll be playing only away matches due to neutral venue concept, I considered Hyderabad as a better option for me as it offers fresh challenges.”

Badri will land here in Hyderabad camp with a dual role of both captain and a mentor of the team as he is the most experienced player in the team. Hyderabad team is a young team and hasn’t done well in past few years. Badri will have the responsibility to buck up the team for the future

“That’s what I’ve been told by the HCA. I’ll be working with coach Bharath Arun, who I’ve known for years, and that makes my job comfortable. We still have some time left and I’m sure everything will fall into place once I take charge of the team. I’ll have a detailed discussion with my coach once the TNPL gets over and prepare a future plan along with him.” said Badri.

In the latest news Hanuma Vihari, who led the team in Ranji Trophy last year has decided to play for Andhra Pradesh for the upcoming season.
