IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad can manage without David Warner says Saha

IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad can manage without David Warner says Saha

Warner was recently stripped off the vice-captaincy of the Australian side after the infamous ball tampering saga in the third Test against South Africa.

"The CoA, in consultation with BCCI acting president Mr CK Khanna, IPL chairman Mr Rajeev Shukla and BCCI acting hon. secretary Mr Amitabh Choudhary, has chose to ban Mr Smith and Mr Warner with immediate effect from participation in IPL 2018", the BCCI said in a statement as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

Smith, who has been replaced as Australia's Test skipper by Tim Paine, gave up his role as the leader of the Rajasthan Royals on Monday.

"To be honest, I don't understand what all the cry is about. The new captain of the team will be announced shortly", Sunrisers chief executive K. Shanmugam said on the team's Twitter page.

The ICC mega event, which is scheduled to take place in the United Kingdom, will start from May 30 next year. The ICC suspended Smith for one Test and docked his entire match fee while Bancroft got a 75 percent fine and three demerit points.

"The team was planned with the captain in mind".

Smith later admitted the move was planned by the team's "leadership group". The support staff led by head coach Tom Moody and ably assisted by VVS Laxman and Muttiah Muralitharan did their homework and tried to retain the core of the team and bought fresh faces, who can make an impact straight away.

The Australian newspaper said there had been a "fierce feud" in the dressing room sparked by Warner's alleged testimony to Cricket Australia's integrity officers, with pace spearheads Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood reportedly livid at being implicated.

Sponsors have voiced "deep concern" over reputational damage with electronics giant LG dropping Warner as brand ambassador on Wednesday, amid fears other could follow suit.

SRH mentor and former India batting great V.V.S. Laxman has said the team management will wait for for Cricket Australia's decision on the player before commenting on his participation in the cash-rich T20 tournament.

Asked if there is an alternative plan in the event of any harsh action against Warner, he said SRH is not even thinking along those lines at the moment.
