Williamson replaces Warner as SRH captain for the remainder of the season
The disappointing performances of Sunrisers Hyderabad have finally taken their toll. Out of form David Warner, who led the team with such distinction over the years while winning the IPL title in 2016, has finally been replaced by Kane Williamson, who led the team to the final in 2018.
In a press release, the SRH management has announced the above change for the remainder of the season and mentioned about changing the overseas composition for the coming game against Rajasthan Royals in an effort to revive their chances in the remainder of the event.

Warner was not in his best form and struggled in this IPL to gain any momentum in his free stroking style of batting as a result of which Sunrisers were struggling to get good starts and are unable to chase down even moderate targets . Now it appears and he will be benched and top West Indian allrounder Jason Holder will be back in the team to add more strength in the bowling and lower-order batting. Holder’s inclusion will add a lot more balance and variety in the Sunrisers bowling attack. Williamson replaces Warner as SRH captain for the remainder of the season.
With Kane Williamson replacing an out of form Warner as captain, it remains to be seen whether Sunrisers Hyderabad can revive their fortunes. It’s an uphill task for them as they need to win a minimum of 80% of their remaining games to have a chance .
