After a disappointing start to their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 crusade, David Warner used to be on Saturday removed as the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper. The decision didn’t go down mannered with many fans. The 2016 champions SRH announced that Kane Williamson will be replacing Warner with instant effect and that they’re going to make changes to their out of the country combination starting Sunday when they face Rajasthan Royals. Warner has been probably the most consistent performers for SRH and one of IPL’s leading scorers. He has scored in excess of 500 runs in every of the final six seasons and won the Orange Cap thrice between 2015 and 2019 – more than any other player in IPL’s history.
SRH won their only title under Warner’s leadership and understandably fans have a special place for him, and they took to Twitter to lend their make stronger.
Warner deserves better remedy man. He’s in the top 5 all time greats of the league.
SRH qualified to KOs in 2016, 2017, 2019, 2020 under him.
Just 4-5 games didn’t go mannered and he gets ditched.

When the entire hopes were down, he used to be the biggest hope for SRH and won matches single-handedly from nowhere. Still get left out of the team for two naughty games despite carrying the team all the way through their history.

Fans questioned the SRH management’s decision to remove captaincy from Warner as he used to be not the only reason for team’s naughty run so far.
Warner became SRH skipper in 2015 and right through his four stints at the helm in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2020, SRH made the playoffs thrice and went the entire way in 2016.
Warner is the most successful out of the country batsman in the history of IPL with 5,447 runs from 148 matches at an average of 42.22 and strike rate of 140.13. He’s the only IPL player to smash 50 half-centuries in in the tournament.
