IPL 2021: 5 matches in 6 matches or no poor form, David Warner lost captaincy due to fight with this man
David Warner was discharged from the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021. In his place, Kane Williamson has been given the captaincy. This step has been taken after Sunrisers Hyderabad lost five out of six matches. David Warner himself is also seen battling for runs this season. But a big reason for removing him from the captaincy is also the conflict with the team management. Warner had expressed his displeasure over many decisions this season. It was clear from his statements that there was something wrong with the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp. It is understood that Warner is not well matched with the Sunrisers team management at this time, which includes Cricket Director Tom Moody and mentor VVS Laxman.
Sunrisers said in a statement about changing the captain, "Sunrisers Hyderabad announce that Kane Williamson will be captain in tomorrow's match and the rest of the IPL matches. This decision was not easy as the team management respects Warner a lot. We hope that he will perform brilliantly in the remaining matches. The management of Hyderabad has also said that in the May 2 match against Rajasthan Royals, it will also change the composition of foreign players. In such a situation, Warner's playing XI can also be discharged. Jason Holder may replace him in the team.
Warner is not getting along with Tom Moody
The language of the Sunrisers' statement indicates that all is not well in the team's camp. According to sources in the news agency PTI, Moody and Warner do not get along at all and differences between Delhi Capitals and the inclusion of Virat Singh by removing Manish Pandey further increased. Warner also said after the defeat that the decision to remove Pandey was tough. Quoting a source, the news agency PTI said, 'This statement did not appeal to the team management. Anyway, there is no consensus about the selection of Warner and Moody playing XI.
At the same time, Kane Williamson has already captained the Sunrisers Hyderabad. When Warner was facing the ban in IPL 2018, this New Zealand player became the head of the team. Williamson then scored 735 runs in 17 matches and took the team to the IPL final for the second time. He has captained 26 matches in the IPL so far and has won 14 and lost 12.
