Sunrisers Hyderabad finished as the wooden spoon holders in the IPL 2021 season and they could not recover from the poor outings they had in the first phase of the tournament in India. Their dependence on the overseas contingent was visible and the injuries to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan did not help their cause as well.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has been expected to stick with Kane Williamson as the skipper of the side while Rashid Khan will be the next retention for the franchise. The franchise is also expected to retain just the two players and they might consider picking up a strong Indian contingent in the mega auction. Here are 3 big players who won’t be retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of IPL 2022.
IPL 2022: 3 Big Players Who Won’t Be Retained By Sunrisers Hyderabad
David Warner has been one of the all-time best players in IPL with some phenomenal numbers to back it up as well. He led the Sunrisers franchise to a title win in 2016 and he has been one of the standout players of the tournament as well. However, he was sacked from captaincy in the middle of the tournament this year.
Sunrisers have already made their intentions clear of not looking at David Warner as the future and instead are looking into Kane Williamson for the leadership duties. Warner will be one of the most demanded players in the upcoming auction or could be picked by the two new teams.
