The team made its debut in IPL 2013 by replacing Deccan Chargers— the former Hyderabad-based IPL franchise previously owned by Deccan Chronicle group that went bankrupt. It was in 2018 when Kavya Maran began to rise to considerable fame after taking charge as the CEO of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

According to various reports, the Sun TV Network acquired Sunrisers Hyderabad for a five-year deal of INR 85.05 Crores approximately. In simpler terms, the bid was for INR 11 Crores per year ($1.02 million) approximately.

Additionally, the Sun TV network owns the SunRisers Eastern Cape franchise in South Africa’s T20 League and Sun NXT— one of the leading digital OTT platforms in South India.

Apart from managing the sports team, Kavya plays an important role in managing the operational aspects of the Sun TV Network, thereby contributing to the wide range of business activities of the Maran family. Moreover, her source of income includes Brand sponsorships and long-term investments. As a result, she earns substantial funds as an executive director of Sun Network which provides a huge backup to invest a huge amount in the franchise league teams.

However, Kavya Maran earns the majority of her income as a co-founder and CEO of Sunrisers Hyderabad.


Though Kavya Maran is blessed to be born as a billionaire’s daughter, it will be soon to predict her fortunes as the Sunrisers Hyderabad co-owner for the ongoing IPL 2024 season. Her strategic move to secure the services of the World Cup 2023 heroes Pat Cummins and Travis Head proved to be valuable in the recent match of SRH vs MI. It resulted in her team riding high on their first success of IPL 2024 with a grand win.

As Pat Cummins marks his T20 captaincy in this IPL season, it remains to be seen if the Sunrisers Hyderabad can win their second IPL trophy after 2016. Ultimately, it is a challenge for Pat Cummins to prove his worth and justify the trust placed in him by Kavya Maran, who made a big investment in him during the previous year’s auction
