IPL 2018: After being trapped in the ball-tampering case, David Warner has left the captaincy of the IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad. Before Warner, Australian captain Steve Smith, who was caught in the ball-tampering case, had also resigned from the captaincy of Rajasthan Royals.

The Hyderabad team’s mentor VVS Laxman had also said that his franchisee is currently awaiting Cricket Australia’s decision. Cricket Australia’s decision has not yet arrived and Warner has already told his decision to not captain Hyderabad. The news itself was tweeted on its twitter account, Hyderabad Sunrise himself.
