Here’s why Shikhar Dhawan left Sunrisers Hyderabad for Delhi Daredevils

Shikhar Dhawan has left Sunrisers Hyderabad for Delhi Daredevils and the move was confirmed by both the franchises. It is the biggest off-season transfer in the history of the Indian Premier League. According to reports, the left hand batsman was unhappy with his fee and the wages he was getting at the franchise.

After negotiations with Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab failed, the Delhi Daredevils snapped up the Indian opener to make their top order stronger.

In the press release posted by Sunrisers Hyderabad, it was clearly stated that he was unsettled due to the amount he was bought for in the auctions.

“The Sunrisers were delighted to pick Shikhar up in the auction after using one of its RTM (right to match) cards earlier in the year. Unfortunately, it has become apparent that the player has been unsettled ever since with the amount he was bought for in the auction, which unfortunately we cannot rectify due to IPL rules," read SRH's official statement.

"The franchise has made the decision to trade Shikhar as they feel it is best for both parties. Sunrisers value the great contribution that Shikhar has made over the years, and saddened that due to financial reasons, he feels it’s time to move on. We wish him and his family all the best,” the statement added.
