IPL 2020: Warner reappointed captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad

IPL 2020: Warner reappointed captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad

Hyderabad, Feb 27 (UNI) Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday announced Australia's David Warner as the captain of their team for Indian Premier League 2020, starting March 29.

The franchise confirmed the news on Twitter and said, "OrangeArmy, our captain for IPL2020 is @davidwarner31".

Warner, who led the Sunrisers to tile win in 2016, takes over from New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson.

"I am thrilled to be given the captaincy for this coming IPL 2020. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead the side once again," Warner said in a video posted by the Sunrisers Hyderbad.

"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," he added.

The 33-year-old had stepped down as captain after he was barred from participating in the 2018 season of the tournament in the aftermath of the 2018 ball-tampering scandal.

Warner served a one-year ban for his role and returned to international cricket before last year's World Cup and has been in remarkable form since then.
