Twitter slams SRH for sacking Warner as their captain
David Warner failed to lead his troops in the right direction in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. Under his captaincy, the Sunrisers lost the first three games in a row and then won against Punjab Kings. After that, they again lost to Chennai Super Kings.
Overall, they managed to win just 1 game and lost 5 games this season and are at the bottom of this season’s points table. Meanwhile, the SRH team management made a harsh decision by sacking David Warner as their captain. Kane Williamson will be the captain of the SRH for the rest of the IPL 2020 season.
The SRH franchise confirmed the news on social channels. “The decision has not come lightly as the management respects the enormous impact David Warner has had for the franchise over a number of years,” the club said in a statement. “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.
“The team management has also made the decision that they will be changing their overseas combination for tomorrow’s (Sunday) match against Rajasthan Royals.”
The recent decision comes after Sunrisers’ recent defeat to Chennai Super Kings and after the match, Warner said he took “full responsibility”.
Meanwhile, fans took to Twitter and hit out at SRH for sacking Warner as her captain. Check out the tweets below:
Accept it or not David Warner loved Sunrisers Hyderabad Team more than his National Team.
500 plus Runs Every Season from 2016. Also this season is not over yet. Very Pathetic Management and this Management decision is by Tom Moody and VVS Laxman for sure. #DavidWarner pic.twitter.com/cNALDIBRCO

SRH has also announced there will be a change in their overseas combination for their next match.
Kane Williamson is new Captain and they can't drop Bairstow and Rashid Khan. It means Warner is likely to be benched ??
Can't even imagine #SRH without David Warner.

one bad season isn’t going to change his legacy in the IPL.
Warner came back strong after sandpaper-gate and he will come back strong from this too. 🧡 pic.twitter.com/BAHcx2kq2i

Warner as a captain for SRH

Warner dropped from captaincy. What a disrespect! SRH should learn from RCB and stick with their captain no matter what. 😡

Carried the team for years, the most consistent OS captain, one of the most prolific overseas players in the league, scored truckloads of runs and danced his ass off on Butta Bomma. Warner is more Hyderabadi than Australian. Horrible call, @SunRisers.
