Who is replacing him Sir Sachin/Lara, Sir Garfield, Sir Viv': Karthik on Warner
A few days back, David Warner was removed from Sunrisers Hyderabad’s captaincy. The team management decided to take the decision with the side languishing at the bottom position in the Indian Premier League 2021 points table. Instead of Warner, New Zealand’s Kane Williamson was made the skipper of the SRH side for the rest of the tournament. Former India spinner Murali Karthik was asked by an Australian sports journalist about his take on Warner’s removal as SRH captain. Karthik said that replacing Warner was ‘shocking and absurd’.
“Mel. Firstly replacing him was downright shocking/absurd, but you know what was the icing on the cake" he does not fit into the Team combination. Seriously, suddenly, wow your best player, one of IPL’s best suddenly does not fit into your team after having played so many yours and 2days ago,” Karthik said on Twitter. “So basically saying that the ones watching are in kindergarten and we don’t understand. Seriously since when did Warner not fit into the team combo. Who is replacing him Sir Sachin/Lara, Sir Garfield, Sir Viv #IPL2021,” added Karthik. Former India batsman Aakash Chopra also talked to Warner on his Youtube channel.
"The sun has set for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their captain has changed but not their fortunes. They have won just one of their seven encounters. They changed the combination and played Nabi with Rashid," said Chopra.
