IPL: Sunrisers Hyderabad's first ever IPL XI- Where are they now?


Sunrisers Hyderabad appointed Kane Williamson as their captain for the IPL 2018.

For Smith and Warner, it's the latest blow to their commercial interests in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal, but it casts a shadow over the future of other Australian players as well.

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said on Wednesday: "The players that they have banned, we are also barring those two players from this season".

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner.

It comes after Aussie captain Steve Smith had already announced he will be standing down from his role as captain of the Rajasthan Royals.

On top of that, the left-handed opener, apparently, voluntarily left a Whatsapp group of all the Australian players after the tampering incident.

Members of the touring party were shocked to see their vice-captain drinking champagne at the team hotel on Monday, when CA's integrity chief Iain Roy grilled players over an illegal plan to scuff the ball in Cape Town. 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. "I understood the IPL has made a call recently, someone told me about that". Following the fiasco, Smith and Warner stood down as captain and vice-captain, respectively.

BlackRock is a major shareholder in gunmakers Sturm Ruger, American Outdoor Brands, and Vista Outdoor Brands. It's owned by Cerberus Capital Management , which plans to shed ownership once the bankruptcy is complete.

New Balance, which sponsors Steve Smith but not the Australian cricket team, would not comment on Wednesday.

Smith and Warner will miss India's Tour of Australia in the year-end & ODI series in India next March.

Confirming the news, Sunrisers Hyderabad said Warner would not be taking charge of the franchise in the upcoming 11th edition of the IPL and that they would shortly announce the new skipper. Both Smith and Warner could be key to Australia's defence of the trophy.

The trio was ordered to return home by Cricket Australia after a preliminary inquiry, which cleared coach Darren Lehmann of any involvement.

"LG Australia will always look to work with ambassadors that share our core brand values and we take these relationships incredibly seriously".

100 hours of voluntary service in community cricket for all three, which will entail non-playing activities like scoring and umpiring.
