Sunrisers Hyderabad handed over the captaincy to Kane Williamson replacing David Warner after they have had a disappointing run so far in the IPL 2021. SRH have lost five matches out of the six that they have played. 

But former New Zealand player Simon Doull is of a different opinion about the change in captaincy and has suggested that 'there must have been a falling out' between Warner and the team management for the playing XI and especially on Manish Pandey’s place. 

Warner had earlier said that dropping Pandey in one of the games was a ‘harsh call’.

"I think there must have been a falling out somewhere along the lines and not with the team, there has to be a falling out with the coaching structure. After what he said in that game about leaving Manish Pandey out, it was not his decision at all, he didn't want to do it clearly. And basically, you passed the buck, you blamed it on someone else and I think he has paid the price for that," said Doull while speaking to Cricbuzz.

Doull also talked about the sacking of Tom Moody and then getting him back in the side. 

"That dynamic... you sack a coach, Tom Moody, you employ Trevor Bayliss and then you bring Tom Moody back to oversee your cricket. I don't know how that relationship can possibly work. And I wonder whether one [win] in 5 (6) is the direct result of that relationship not working... And the press release suggests that he [David Warner] won't even play now that's even more strange," Doull added.

The Hyderabad-based franchise will now face RR on Sunday in Delhi.
