    SunRisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has taken to Twitter to refute a rumour that New Zealander Kane Williamson will be leaving the IPL franchise.

    Twitter user ‘MKGUPTA21’ called Warner out on the claims, asking whether the Kiwi was going to another IPL team via “inside trading”.

    Warner said, “First I have heard of this. Kane will not be going anywhere.”

    Williamson had a stellar season with SunRisers over the previous IPL campaign, scoring 317 in 11 innings, including three half-centuries and a strike rate of 133.75.

    The New Zealander has been part of the Hyderabad set up since 2015 and also played a CPL season with Barbados Tridents in 2017.
