Late-City-MB_1-2Star Sri Lankan batsman Kusal Perera may replace David Warner in Sunrisers Hyderabad squad for the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which begins next month. 

“Yes we have approached Kusal Perera as a replacement for Warner. Like Warner, he is also a devastating batsman and our analyst informed us that he has been in tremendous form in the last few months. Though nothing has been finalised as yet, we are hopeful Perera will join our squad,” a Sunrisers Hyderabad official told yesterday.

Earlier, Cricket Australia (CA) banned Steve Smith and David Warner for 12 months in the wake of ball tampering during their four-Test series against South Africa. 

Following CA’s decision, the BCCI also banned the duo from this year’s IPL.
