Hyderabad: Batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan will captain Sunrisers Hyderabad in this year’s Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament, which will begin on Tuesday.

The left-handed opener has been entrusted with the responsibility after Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara decided to play for his home side Kandurata Maroons in the upcoming tournament.

“Meet the new #SRH Captain for #CLT20! Utho, Chalo, Let’s #RiseUp!” read a post on Sunrisers Hyderabad team’s Twitter handle on Saturday with Dhawan’s picture below it.

Dhawan will lead the Hyderabad outfit, which boasts of players like former West Indies skipper Darren Sammy, JP Duminy, Dale Steyn and Cameron White among others.

Dhawan has been in phenomenal form ever since scoring a blistering 187 on his Test debut against Australia in Mohali.

Dhawan, who missed the first seven matches of th is year’s Indian Premier League due to a hand injury sustained in the Mohali Test, was the leading run-getter for Sunrisers, scoring 311 runs in 10 matches at 38.87. (PTI)
