Kane Williamson takes over as captain of SRH

May 2, 2021

Kane Williamson will take over as captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for the remainder of the IPL 2021, the franchise announced on Saturday.

Williamson will take over from David Warner, under whom SRH have lost five of their six games this season and are at the bottom of the standings.

The Australian batsman also hasn’t been in the best of form in the ongoing edition. In his six innings, Warner scored 3, 54, 36, 37, 6 and 57.

The decision comes against the backdrop of Sunrisers’ latest defeat to Chennai Super Kings post which Warner said he took “full responsibility.” Incidentally, in the previous game he had stated that the decision to drop Manish Pandey from the XI as a ‘harsh’ call from the ‘selectors’.

Warner, who led the Sunrisers to the IPL title in 2016, is likely to be replaced by West Indies captain Jason Holder.

Williamson has previously led Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2018 and 2019 seasons. He was named captain in 2018 after Warner had been barred from participating in that season of the tournament in the aftermath of Sandpapergate controversy in Cape Town.
