David Warner’s Instagram Story After Getting Axed As SRH Captain Will Make Every Fan Emotional


David Warner’s Instagram Story Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) took a bold decision recently during the ongoing Indian Premier League. They sacked David Warner as the captain of the team and appointed Kane Williamson as skipper of SRH and stated that the management is willing to change the overseas combination clearly hinting that the Australian opener could be changed.

David Warner’s Instagram Story This news came as a shocking development given the fact that Warner is the second-highest run-getter at the moment for Sunrisers Hyderabad. He has scored 193 runs in six matches so far but his strike-rate of around 110, which has raised eyebrows. The SRH franchise faced a lot of flak from the fans for this decision. SRH said in its media release,

“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.”

Meanwhile, it is still not known whether David Warner had any issues with the management. Warner has recently stated that it was selectors’ decision to leave out Manish Pandey from the playing XI. Interestingly, his sacking comes a couple of games after his comment on the matter. Many are speculating if that is the reason he has been removed from the captaincy.

The director of cricket of SRH, Tom Moody stated that though David Warner was shocked and disappointed, he came to the terms and understood the reason behind it along with what the team wants to achieve.

Warner happens to be one of the top batsmen in the league. He has been the key for SRH over the last few seasons and hence it would be interesting to see how the side copes with him at the helm. SRH would hope a change of captain would bring about a change of fortunes for the side. They need to start winning to keep their playoff hopes alive. They are currently placed at the bottom of the table with a solitary win in six games.
