David Warner, the Australian cricketer who is leading the team Sun Risers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League is not going to take the responsibility of the team’s captain anymore. The team management has taken a decision to appoint Kane Williamson as the new captain of the team and has sent a press release over the same. Kane Williamson has already taken this responsibility in the past, in the absence of Warner.
“SunRisers Hyderabad would like to announce that Kane Williamson will be taking over the captaincy for tomorrow’s match and for the remainder of IPL 2021. The team management has also made the decision that they will be changing their overseas combination for tomorrow’s match against Rajasthan Royals. This decision has not come lightly as the management respects the enormous impact David Warner has had for the franchise over a number of years. As we face the remainder of the season we are sure David will continue to help us strive for success both on and off the field.” read the press release from the team management.
After SRH losing their match against Chennai Super Kings, captain Warner took full responsibility for the loss. He agreed that he played slow in the middle which he should not have done. In the wake of the team losing back-to-back matches, the team management decided to bring a change in captaincy, with the hope that the team will win the upcoming games.
Sun Risers Hyderabad played 6 games so far and won only one game this season. They are in last place on the points table.
