IPL 2020 Sunrisers Hyderabad captain – The only bad light for David Warner’s career came during the 2018 season where he was banned by his own board, Cricket Australia. He was banned for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal which happened in Cape Town, South Africa.
Due to this saga, Cricket Australia banned David Warner from playing any form of cricket. This was also the reason why he was taken out of the captaincy that season. But still Sunrisers Hyderabad have given many match-winning performances throughout the IPL so far.
Kane Williamson was an ideal replacement as the captain for the Sunrisers Hyderabad Team. Even when Warner returned after serving a ban for one year, he allowed the Kiwi Captain to continue as the SRH captain. Due to that, SRH reached the final of the 2018 season and in 2019, they reached the playoff stage.
