Star Australian opener David Warner, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has announced that he would no longer be a member of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) playing XI for the remainder of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) United Arab Emirates (UAE) leg.
David Warner, considered as one of the most successful batters in Indian Premier League (IPL) history, was dropped in the 40th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) against Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Monday, September 27 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The Australian opener had a terrible season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. After the team’s dismal performance in the first half of the IPL 2021, Warner was relieved of the leadership and even demoted from the playing XI. In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, he had a dismal season, scoring only 195 runs with a strike rate of 107 in eight games.
Concerning his accomplishments with the Orange Army, David Warner is the top run-getter for the Hyderabad franchise in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL), having scored over 4000 runs with the Orange Army at an average of 49.55 and a strike rate of 142.59.
During this time, he also managed to break 42 half-centuries. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won their first Indian Premier League (IPL) title under David Warner in 2016, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final. However, following his performance in the Indian Premier League 2021, it would not be surprising if he is released by the SRH ahead of the IPL 2022 auction. In addition, with the addition of two new clubs, the 34-year-old may easily become a part of a new franchise in the cash-rich league.
Meanwhile, the official Instagram account of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) tweeted a photo after the first ten overs of the match versus Rajasthan Royals. In the same thread, a fan wondered where Warner was throughout the RR versus SRH game.
