IPL 2018: David Warner steps down from Sunrisers Hyderabad captaincy

  • Cameron Bancroft and Australia Steve Smith during the press conference

The third offender, Cameron Bancroft, who carried out the ball-tampering scheme using sandpaper, has been banned for nine months, and same as Smith, can't skipper Australia for 12 months after his return. When the ICC laid out their one-Test ban to Smith for the ball-tampering charge, the chief executive David Richardson said the game needed to take a hard look at how it was being portrayed. Royals have already named Ajinkya Rahane as their captain for the season, but Sunrisers have not yet announced who will replace Warner. "The new captain of the team will be announced shortly", Sunrisers CEO K. Shanmugam announced on Twitter on Wednesday. "He's made a mistake and certainly admitted that and they are disappointed with that action", Williamson had said.

A report on Wednesday cited an official from the Board of Control for Cricket in India stating the IPL will be forced to ban any Aussie players suspended by Cricket Australia. 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. But had we included them now, they would be in the forefront of all promotional events and that wouldn't have given any good mileage to the brand of IPL.

IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla told reporters here "They (Cricket Australia) have banned two players and we are also barring these two players from this year's IPL,".

Warner has been one of the highest scorers for SRH. Cricket Australia are expected to hand down lengthy bans to the pair, and Bancroft, on Thursday (NZ time), but it was unknown if the bans would extend to IPL play. Overall, this decision will affect both the Royals' and Sunrisers' camp because for them these two players were big stars and really needed batsman.

Both Warner and Smith were bought by their respective franchises at the same price of Dollars 1.84 million (approx Rs 12.50 crore) each.

The three will be allowed to play club cricket and were encouraged by the CA to do so "to maintain links with the cricket community".
