Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Jason Holder and the side's new signing Sherfane Rutherford arrived in UAE, ahead of the resumption of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League, on Friday.


Holder and Rutherford featured in the recently-concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 and, hence, will undergo only a two-day isolation before joining the SRH bubble. The bubble to bubble transfer means they will not need to quarantine for six days.

"The big man from the Caribbean is here. Welcome back, @Jaseholder98," SRH tweeted.

"#OrangeArmy, say hello to the latest addition to the #Risers squad. Welcome, Sherfane," it added.

Rutherford will replace Jonny Bairstow in the squad for the second phase.

The 14th season, which was postponed in May this year in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, will resume on Sunday in Dubai with a blockbuster clash between Chennai Super Kings and defending champions Mumbai Indians.

After the Chennai-Mumbai match, the action shifts to Abu Dhabi, where Kolkata Knight Riders square off against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sharjah will host its first game on September 24, when Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Chennai Super Kings.

13 matches will be played in Dubai, 10 in Sharjah, and eight in Abu Dhabi.
