Australian phenom David Warner recently took a trip down the memory lane and shared his favourite moment from his Indian Premier League (IPL) career. The 33-year-old explosive batsman has been with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) since 2014, and he led them to the title for the first time in 2016.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Warner shared a snap from 2016, when the Sunrisers picked up the coveted trophy, and the Aussie opener deemed that moment as his favourite.
David Warner picks his first IPL win as favourite moment:
SRH overcame the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the final, beating Virat Kohli’s men by eight runs to end their trophy drought. The moment was a special one for Warner, and he shared it on his Instagram earlier in the day.
Warner’s post read: “My favourite IPL moment would have to be this for sure. My Indian family @SunrisersHyderabad.”
Under normal circumstances, the left-handed batsman would have led SRH in the IPL’s 13th edition, but now that India is battling against the Coronavirus Pandemic, the BCCI has postponed the cash-rich league until April 15 although the chances of having the tournament begin from the set date are very slim.
BCCI planning to have IPL next year: Reports
While the governing body will push back the IPL, with the Asia Cup 2020 and 2020 T20 World Cup lined up later this year, they will have to host the lucrative league next year, as per a reliable source.
“IPL will not happen this year. It will now happen next year. We all know how the situation is at the moment in the country and no one will take any risk,” a BCCI source was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
“One can’t have social distancing in the stadium. It’s better to play IPL next year. Also, no mega auction will take place. We will inform the franchises once we get final confirmation from the Indian government, the same season can continue next season,” he added.
