Hyderabad, 1/5 (AO Bureau):Sunrisers Hyderabad has appointed New Zealand player Kane Williamson as the new captain of the team for the remaining matches of IPL 2021. The team was currently captained by Australian player David Warner. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s performance in this season is very poor. The Hyderabad team has lost five times in six matches. This team is at the lowest position in the IPL table. David Warner himself is struggling to score runs. Hyderabad have the option of England’s explosive batsman Jason Roy. In the next few matches, Jason Roy can replace David Warner in the team.
“Sunrisers Hyderabad announces that Kane Williamson will be captain in tomorrow’s match and the rest of the IPL matches,” the Sunrisers said in a statement. The team management said that it will also change the combination of foreign players against Rajasthan Royals. . This means that Warner can be dropped from the team. “This decision was not easy as the team management respects Warner a lot,” the statement said. We hope that he will perform brilliantly in the rest of the matches. ”
This has happened on several occasions before Warner was removed from the captaincy of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the middle season. Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik relinquished the captaincy during the IPL held in the UAE last year. KKR himself informed about this by tweeting. He did this before the match against Mumbai Indians. Then Oyen Morgan of England was made the captain of the team in place of Karthik.
Earlier, this has also happened in the 2014 IPL. Even then, Sunrisers Hyderabad had handed over the command of the team to West Indies’ Darren Sammy, removing Shikhan Dhawan from the captaincy in the middle season. The same thing happened with former Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara while captaining the Deccan Chargers in 2012. He left the captaincy not only because of poor form. Rather, he also dropped himself from playing-11. So that Cameron White can get a chance to play.
