Brave call to axe David Warner as captain

News Analysis

He has been one of the greats of the IPL, but freeing up his slot could lend greater balance to SRH

Did David Warner voluntarily step down as the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain? Or was Warner told he had no choice?

ESPNcricinfo understands Warner agreed with the team management it was better he stepped down to allow flexibility in team selection, which could potentially lead the Sunrisers to recover from their joint worst ever start in an IPL season. They are right now last on the points table, with a solitary win in six games.
