Tamil Nadu and SunRisers Hyderabad seam-bowling all-rounder Vijay Shankar is sweating out in the nets in a bid to learn the nuances of swinging the ball in a bid to add potency to his gentle medium pace bowling.

And, it seems that the all-rounder has got a pretty good tutor in the form of swing-king Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is helping his teammate hone his skills in the nets.

Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad dropped a bombshell on Saturday when they announced that Kane Williamson will take over the leadership role from the incumbent David Warner following the latters’ poor performance with both the bat as well as a leader.

Warner, who has endured a lean season thus far, took complete responsibility after his team suffered their fifth defeat in six matches this season.

In a statement issued by SunRisers Hyderabad on Twitter, the 2016 champions said that while Williamson will be taking over the captaincy from their next fixture, the ‘Orange Army’ is also likely to make a change to their overseas combinations, signaling that David Warner may well be benched in the upcoming games.

”SunRisers Hyderabad would like to announce that Kane Williamson will be taking over the captaincy for tomorrow’s match and for the remainder of IPL 2021. The team management has also made the decision that they will be changing their overseas combination for tomorrow’s match against Rajasthan Royals,” SRH said in an official statement.

“This decision has not come lightly as the management respects the enormous impact David Warner has had for the franchise over a number of years. As we face the remainder of the season we are sure David will continue to help us strive for success both on and off the field,” it added.
