Shikhar Dhawan won the IPL with Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016

Since his move away from Delhi after the first season, Dhawan has turned up for Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

SRH confirmed in the statement that the decision to trade Shikhar was best for both parties.

Sunrisers swapped Dhawan for Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma with Delhi.

In a media statement issued on Monday, Sunrirsers said the rules did not permit an increase in the amount using the RTM card unless they had signed Dhawan in the open auction for a bigger price.

However, the decision has not enjoyed a positive response from the Sun Risers fans who have criticised the trade of a player who had emerged as a fan-favourite after joining the franchise back in 2013.

He said he was praying for the "pilgrims killed for the sole fact of being Christians", asking that those grieving be comforted. There had been a lull in major attacks since December when a gunman attacked a church and a Christian-owned shop near Cairo.

The left-hander was a constant at the top of the order for Sunrisers Hyderabad last season, but they struggled to find a regular opening partner, with Kane Williamson, Wriddhiman Saha, Alex Hales and Shreevats Goswami all opening at different times in the tournament.

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce that one of our long standing players, Shikhar Dhawan, will be playing for another franchise in 2019". 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. We thank Shikhar for his contribution to the team over the years and wish him the very best. "Unfortunately, the player hasn't been settled for the amount he has been bought for, which unfortunately we can not rectify, as per IPL rules", the statement said.

"We have traded Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Daredevils for Vijay Shankar, Shahbhaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma". 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. In that he scored 2518 runs at an average of 34.49.

Welcoming the addition of Dhawan to the team, Parth Jindal, Director- Delhi Daredevils, said: "We are thrilled at the prospect of having Shikhar turn up in DD colours for the next season of the IPL".
