Sunrisers Hyderabad have traded an "unsettled" Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Daredevils in a move that will see the India opener play for the IPL franchise of his home city after 10 years. Dhawan was given the captaincy arm band by Hyderabad in 2014 and is the franchise's highest run-scorer with 2768 runs at an average of 35.03 with a strike rate of 125.13.

Every franchise is allowed four retentions before a player auction, but Sunrisers only retained David Warner and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Since his move away from Delhi after the first season, Dhawan has turned up for Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH did not retain him ahead of the mega auction earlier this year and bought him back from the auction for Rs 5.2 crore by using the RTM (Right To Match) card. The Sunrisers values 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. They shared an animated image of Shikhar Dhawan with the caption Gabbar Is Back. 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. They also confirmed that the cricketer was unhappy with the amount he was being paid and also cleared that it was better for both the parties to part ways after a long standing association. "Unfortunately, it has become apparent that the player has been unsettled ever since with the amount he was bought for in the auction, which we unfortunately we can not rectify due to IPL rules", the part of the statement read.

Dhawan also joins Pant, Gambhir and Manjot Kalra as the locals now playing for the Delhi franchise. Shikhar Dhawan, who played for Delhi in the inaugural IPL season of 2008, joined Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2013 and was playing for them ever since. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad officially confirms the news by releasing a press note on Monday (November 5th).

Parth Jindal, one of the owners and the director of Daredevils, said Dhawan brought vast experience to the roster and would help "solidify" their top order.
