In the 2020 IPL, David Warner was third on the list of most runs and he scored 548 runs in 16 matches with an average of 39 and his strike rate was close to 135. Last year, the Sunrisers also did extremely well and reached the eliminator round. Although Sunrisers could not make it to the final last time, the team played very well under the captaincy of David Warner.

But this year Hyderabad’s performance has hurt not only the fans of Hyderabad but also the fans of cricket and Hyderabad is at the bottom of the table.

The management of Sunrisers Hyderabad has given a press release informing that Kane Williamson will captain all the matches of IPL 2021 from now on and also informed that in tomorrow’s match, the team management will reshuffle the configuration of their foreign players.

Along with this, the management of Sunrisers has also said that they respect the contribution of David Warner. And he hopes that David Warner will continue to contribute his significant contribution to the team going forward whether on field or off field.

At the same time it is being speculated that David Warner may not be seen in tomorrow’s match against Rajasthan and he will be replaced by England opener Jason Roy who is also in good form recently.

Tomorrow’s match is going to be important for both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals as both are at the eighth and seventh position of the table. And both of them would like to win the match tomorrow and get 2 points so that they remains relevant in the tournament.

Talk of Jason Roy, Jason Roy has played only 8 matches in the IPL so far, and in these eight matches, he has scored 179 runs, in which his highest score is 91. Jason Roy has an average of 29 in the IPL and a strike rate of 133.

Before this, Kane Williamson captained the Sunrisers in 2018 in the absence of David Warner, and Sunrisers Hyderabad topped the table that season. SRH scored 18 points with a win in 9 matches out of their 14 matches in the league phase.
