Big Shock To Hyderabad Sunrisers

Rahane will lead the Rajasthan Royals side in the Indian Premier League 2018

Wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha on Tuesday said Sunrisers Hyderabad have enough bench strength to replace Australian batsman David Warner, who is facing a lengthy ban from Cricket Australia for his role in the ball-tampering scandal.

Mentor V.V.S. Laxman is on record saying the team will wait for Cricket Australia's decision on Warner before taking a call.

He, along with his skipper Steve Smith, and fellow opener Cameron Bancroft were sent back home with Cricket Australia naming Tim Paine as the captain for the fourth Test against the Proteas. "Whatever the team management decides, one has to follow it".

Sutherland, who accepted that this is a rather dark day in the history of Australian cricket, added that the integrity officer of Cricket Australia Iain Roy feels that this is nothing more than an isolated incident.

Warner is a genuine rock star in India and had initially been confident of retaining his lucrative leadership post with Hyderabad, who he led to the IPL title in 2016.

"In light of recent events, David Warner has stepped down as captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad".




Warner's participation in the T20 tournament, where he was due to collect $2.4 million, is in doubt.

Warner's resignation comes just two days after worldwide team-mate Smith quit as Rajasthan Royals skipper.

CEO James Sutherland said that the sanction against the trio was announced based on preliminary investigations.

The 31-year-old Warner also reportedly irked the entire Australian dressing room by partying after the scandal.

The electronics company today noted its current deal with the opening batsman was in its final weeks.

Saha said Sunrisers have a solid middle-order to meet the challenge in case Warner is left out in the wake of the ball-tampering row.
