David Warner Says Goodbye To SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) After Being Left Out Of The Playing XI Against Mumbai Indians. Veteran Australian opener, David Warner has bid farewell to his SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) family after being left out of the SRH playing XI in their final league game of IPL 2021 against Mumbai Indians.
Notably, David Warner has been at the helm of very harsh treatment by the SRH management ever since the team derailed this year in IPL 2021. Earlier, in the first leg, he was stripped of the captaincy of the franchise and Kane Williamson was named the skipper of the side for the remainder of the IPL 2021 ahead of their 7th game of the tournament this year.
David Warner Posts An Emotional Message For SRH Fans
On Friday, SunRisers Hyderabad are taking on Mumbai Indians in their final league game of IPL 2021. They have already been eliminated out of the tournament due to a very poor run as they have managed to win just 3 games out of the 13 games that they have played so far in the Indian Premier League 2021.
After being left out of the SRH playing XI in their final league game against MI, David Warner came up with an emotional message for the SRH fans as he has already played his final game for the franchise. Ahead of IPL 2022, a mega auction will take place which will allow the franchises to retain just one overseas player and hence, SRH might not go ahead with Warner.
Warner came up with a post on Instagram and wrote, “Thank You for the memories created. To all the fans, you have been a driving force for our team always to give 100%. I can’t thank you all enough for the support shown. It’s been a great ride. My family and I are going to miss you all!! #respect #cricket #hyderabad One last effort today”
