David Warner reinstated as Sunrisers Hyderabad captain in Indian Premier League
David Warner was on Thursday reinstated as IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)'s captain, a position that he had to give up after the ball-tampering scandal in 2018.
The 33-year-old Warner, who led the Sunrisers to the trophy in 2016, will take over from New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson for the season starting March 29.
"I am thrilled to be given the captaincy for this coming IPL XIII. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead the side once again," Warner said in a video posted by the Sunrisers.
"I'd like to thank Kane (Williamson) for the way you guys led the team throughout the last couple of years and I'd be leaning on you guys for support and insight to the game as well," he said.
