K. Shanmugam, CEO, SunRisers Hyderabad said “We are happy to announce Kane Williamson as the captain and Bhuvneshwar Kumar as the vice-captain of SunRisers Hyderabad for IPL 2018.”
Kane Williamson has been with SunRisers Hyderabad since 2015. He is often recognised as one of the best batsmen in contemporary international cricket and his captaincy for his national side has been appreciated by many.
Williamson said in acceptance of the captaincy, “I’ve accepted the role to stand in as captain for this season. It’s an exciting opportunity with the talented group of players. I look forward to the challenges ahead.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been representing SRH since 2014 and was the purple cap holder for bagging the maximum number of wickets in 2016. He was instrumental in helping SunRisers lift the IPL trophy. In 2017, he repeated the feat by bagging the purple cap yet again.
