SRH were placed at the bottom of the Vivo IPL 2021 points table with a solitary win in the seven outings. Due to the poor performances, the franchise had to drop Australian batter David Warner from the captaincy role and Kane Williamson was made the skipper for the remainder of the season.

The fate of SRH did not change even after the change in the captaincy. Williamson could not lead SRH to victory in his only game as the captain after which the BCCI suspended the Vivo IPL 2021 for an indefinite time.
