Dhawan to captain Sunrisers in Champions League

New Delhi, Sep 14, 2013, (IANS) :

 Stylish batsman Shikhar Dhawan will captain Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Champions League T20 starting Tuesday.

Dhawan has been given the responsibility in the absence of Kumar Sangakkara, who has opted to play for Sri Lankan franchise Kandurat Maroon in the tournament.

"Meet the new #SRH Captain for #CLT20!" read a post on Sunrisers' Twitter handle Saturday with Dhawan's picture below it.


Dhawan was the leading run-getter for Sunrisers in the 2013 Indian Premier League despite missing the early part of the tournament. He scored 311 runs in 10 matches at 38.87.
