Australian player David Warner will reappear in the captaincy role after a long time after the IPL schedule is set. Sunrisers Hyderabad has once again captained David Warner this season. Warner was banned for a year after allegations of ball-tampering.
After this, Warner returned to the IPL but he was kept away from the captaincy. In his absence, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and then Kane Williamson captained the team.
Kiwi captain Williamson has been the captain of the team for the last two seasons and now this responsibility is being given to Warner again. However, Warner believes that he does not need to be the captain to be the leader of the team.
Warner said, 'I consider it a matter of pride to be the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad. I have a special relationship with the players, staff and owners in this team. I have thanked him again for giving me this responsibility.
I will try my best to win the title to the team. Kane and Bhuvneshwar handled the team responsibly in my absence. Warner believes that he was the leader of the team despite not being the captain.
The Australian opener said, 'I used to see myself as a leader even in the last season. You do not need to be called a captain to be the leader of the team. It is not different for me to be the captain, it will be the same as it was in the previous season.
