David Warner, the captain of SunRisers Hyderabad, left Australia to participate in the IPL. On April 11, SRH will play their first match in Bengaluru.
Candice Warner, David Warner’s wife, posted cute photos of the SunRisers Hyderabad captain with their daughters on Thursday, just days before he leaves for India for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). “We love you, Daddy. SunRisers (@SunRisers) Prepare for the launch of @davidwarner31! #OrangeArmy, #IPL2021 “Candice shared the photos on Twitter. The franchise reacted to the tweet by writing: “Captain, I’ll see you soon. We’ll look after him well. Candice Warner (@CandiceWarner31)” Warner had earlier in the day posted a photo with his wife and captioned it, “our last wine together for a few months.”
“Our last bottle of wine together for a few months; we’ve been fortunate to spend some quality time together at home, so it’s time to pack our belongings and go to India. @candywarner1 #cricket #ipl #india #missyou, I love you “In an Instagram post, Warner shared himself.
Warner is the tournament’s third-highest run scorer overall and the leading run scorer for foreign players. He has 5,254 runs at an average of 42.71 from 142 matches so far. In the IPL, the southpaw has slammed four tonnes and 48 fifties.
Jason Roy, an England batsman, joined SRH on Wednesday as a substitute for Mitchell Marsh. Due to personal reasons, the Australia all-rounder will be unavailable for the whole season.
SRH qualified for the playoffs last year under Warner’s leadership, but the team lost in Qualifier 2 to the Delhi Capitals.
SRH continued to punch above their weight to reach the playoff stage through injuries to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mitchell Marsh.
On April 11, SRH will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 14 opener at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
