5 IPL teams with the most number of captains
#4 Sunrisers Hyderabad – 5 captains
SRH were founded in 2012 after the Deccan Chargers outfit were terminated by the IPL. In terms of the number of captain-changes per seasons, SRH tops all the IPL teams. They have had five different captains in the four seasons they have played.
In the first season, they were captained by Kumar Sangakkara and Cameron White, who split games almost equally between them. Amidst a lacklustre season, they lost to Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator. Their next season was no different as the team tried two more captains with Shikhar Dhawan leading for the first 10 games and Sammy leading for the last four. Their bad run continued as they finished sixth.
In the 2015 and 2016 seasons, the team was led by David Warner who seemed to have finally solved the captaincy issues as SRH went on to win the 2016 championship with the Aussie himself leading from the front. Unless he produces a few uncharacteristically shoddy performances in the coming seasons, it is hard to imagine someone replacing Warner as captain of SRH in the foreseeable future.
