New Delhi, Pretr. Star Australian batsman David Warner on Tuesday claimed that the Sunrisers Hyderabad management did not give any reason to remove him from the captaincy of this IPL season. This time the team was captained by Kane Williamson and under his leadership Sunrisers Hyderabad’s performance was very poor and this team finished last in the points table this season.

New Zealand’s Kane Williamson was given the command of Sunrisers after David Warner was removed from the captaincy in the first phase of IPL. Despite the change of captaincy, Sunrisers’ performance did not improve and the team remained at the bottom of the IPL points table. Warner was not even given a place in the team in the last few matches. David Warner said, ‘With all due respect to the team owners, Trevor Bayliss, Laxman, Moody and Murali, I would say that any decision is unanimous. What was disappointing for me was that I was not even told why I was dropped from the captaincy. It is difficult if a decision has been taken on the basis of form, as past performance should not have been overlooked.

He said it was difficult to digest being dropped from the captaincy, but he wanted to move on. He said, ‘Especially when you have played 100 matches for the team. I think four out of the first five matches in Chennai were poor. I have a few questions, but can’t seem to find an answer. We have to move forward. David Warner said that he would like to play for Sunrisers Hyderabad in future too, but it is not in his hands. He said, ‘I enjoyed playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. I hope to come back. In the jersey of Sunrisers or any other team, I don’t know.
