David Warner endured a lean run with the bat for SRH in IPL 2021. He couldn’t give ideal starts at the top of the order, something which he had done consistently for the franchise for a number of years. Warner’s poor numbers with the bat had a severe impact on the team’s performance in the tournament.
For the first time in the history of the tournament, SRH succumbed to the bottom of the points table, managing only 3 wins in 14 matches.
Recent reports suggest that Sunrisers Hyderabad aren’t likely to retain David Warner for the next season and the Australian cricketer is likely to find himself back at the auction pool.
Punjab Kings could be interested in buying his services for next year. He could not only open the innings for the team but also take on the leadership role. He could be an ideal replacement for KL Rahul for the Kings.
