Sunrisers Hyderabad will soon miss out on a seasoned player come to the end of the season. Though David Warner was once the big-hitting opener of the team, SRH will let go of him, and Warner will be allowed to join the auction pool once again.
Incidentally, David Warner was dropped from playing XI because of his poor form, and now Warner himself has hinted that he won’t be returning to the team again. Warner posted, “Unfortunately, won’t be again but keep supporting, please.”This season, Warner managed to accumulate only 181 runs in eight matches with an average strike rate of 24.37. In fact, his current strike rate is at an all-time low in his IPL stints. 34-year-old Warner joined SRH in 2014 and captained the side to its maiden IPL title in 2016.
If one can recollect, David Warner was dropped from the leadership role after the 2018 ball-tampering scandal, but he was made the skipper in 2020. He was once again removed as a captain during the first leg of the season due to the team’s poor performance and his differences with team director Tom Moody and head coach Trevor Bayliss.
On its part, SRH has already announced that they are willing to let youngsters experience not just the matches but time at the ground and around the set-up.
