IPL 2021: David Warner Axed as SRH Skipper, Kane Williamson to Lead Team
In a massive development from the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp, the team has removed David Warner as the skipper and Kane Williamson will lead the team for the rest of the season.
SRH put out an official statement on their social media handles. One of the paragraphs from the report read, “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.”

This season has been horrific for the Men in Orange, as they have only won a single game, out of the six they have played. In fact the performance of Warner had been rather ordinary, and had only scored 193 runs in six outings.
