Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a pretty disappointing start to the ongoing season of Indian Premier League. The Orange Army have lost three matches on the trot and were under the pump as they got set for their crucial clash against Punjab Kings in Chennai. While the SRH fans have not had too many moments to cherish so far this season, it was a completely different scenario on Wednesday. As David Warner announced at the toss that Kane Williamson is back in the playing XI, the fans went berserk as they hailed the comeback of Kiwi skipper in the side.

Kane Williamson is back

The 30-year-old has been out of action for a while as he has been nursing an elbow injury. In his absence, SRH have struggled to get going with an extremely inexperienced middle-order. Williamson certainly provides a lot of stability to their side and most importantly, he allows David Warner and Jonny Bairstow to play more freely at the top. Having failed to chase targets in their last three matches, Hyderabad fans would be hoping to get their first win of the season with dependable Kane back in the side.

Twitter goes berserk

All the cricket fans could not express their excitement to see Williamson back in IPL. The Kiwi skipper is one of the most beloved cricketers in India and the reaction of fans just prove it once again. Some of the people were also happy to see experienced Kedar Jadhav get a game for SRH.

With Sunrisers Hyderabad set to chase once again, it will be really interesting to see if the calm head of Kane Williamson can finally reap benefits as they aim to get their first win of the season.
