Newly appointed Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson believes his former player David Warner continues to be the talk of the future in the playing XI, an Australian world-class player.
After suffering a 55-run defeat at the hands of the Rajasthan Royals, Warner lost five of his first six matches and Williamson did not change his fortunes as he rose to the position.
“There are a lot of leaders in the group. It’s important that we stay tight. And for us it’s about building and adjusting to one side,” Williamson looked a little uncomfortable with the question during the post – match performance.
The captain said the team should be clear about strategies and execution.
“Rather than looking for more than success, we need to be clear about how we work. Warner is a world-class player and we put our cards on the table. I’m sure there will be many conversations,” Williamson escaped at best.
Before the match, he admitted that it was difficult to chase when the Royals scored 220 for 3 wickets.
“Tough day. Total amount of competition from RR. It’s Jose day and he is the best. With the bat you need to get some things going your way and when you lose wickets it makes it even harder to chase 220.
“We have had a lot of challenges over the last three weeks, but we have to make small adjustments and perform better. Jose and Sanju are crucial, so we wanted Rashid to bowl as many deliveries as possible against them.
Butler and Samson stitched a match-winning 150-run partnership.
