The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) opener David Warner has been dropped from the playing XI in the 40th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) against Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai on Monday, September 27.
Notably, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 has been the worst season for the Australian opener. In the first half of the IPL 2021, Warner was removed from the captaincy after the poor performance of the team and was dropped from the playing XI. Notably, Kane Williamson was appointed as the new leader of the side.
Overall he had a forgettable run in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 as he scored only 195 runs at a strike rate of 107 in eight games
Notably, David Warner is the highest run-getter for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he has managed to score over 3000 for the Orange army at an average of 49.55 and strike-rate 142.59.
Also during this period, he was able to smash 42 half-centuries. Meanwhile, Under David Warner Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won their first Indian Premier League (IPL) title in 2016 by defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Notably, Sunrisers Hyderabad replaced David Warner in the team with explosive English opener Jason Roy. Other than that, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav were dropped and Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma were added. Meanwhile, fast bowler Siddarth Kaul replaced injured left-arm pacer, Khaleel Ahmed.
“We will look to adapt early with the ball. Few young players are getting opportunities. Jason Roy is at the top for David Warner. Pandey, Kedar miss out. Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma are playing. Sid Kaul replaces injured Khaleel. : SRH captain Kane Williamson
Here is how Twitterati reacted to David Warner getting dropped from Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) playing XI.
Last time RCB disrespected team legend Gayle faced 2 seasons of humiliation and yet it is still recovering from it …. Dei @SunRisers you are doing same … Warner carried your franchise for 5 years few bad matches throwing him out of 11 .. be ready to face legend curse .

Current form won't change the fact that David Warner is one of the greatest IPL batsman of all time, the way he's been consistent in this league is just next level. Led from the front all these years won SRH the trophy in 2016. Hoping for strong comeback @davidwarner31

So it's almost confirmed, David Warner going to mega auction unless he has a great T20 World Cup for Australia, with many teams need a captain, it will be interesting to see Warner in the auction.

David Warner finding hard to get a place in Sunrisers Hyderabad team is disheartening to see. He's been carrying their batting for long, gave his all for the team, but it seems he isn't allowed to have an off season. Gotta feel for him. Man loves IPL, but isn't going well.

If David Warner isn't retained or RTM'ed by SRH, then I hope that the SRH management allows him to take away the 2016 trophy with him too. This bunch of clowns don't deserve him & also the trophy.

Cameraman I dare you please don't turn the freaking camera towards Warner today 🙏

Imagine if this Warner dropping involved Kohli & not Kane as a skipper🥴🥴

Fresh look to #SRH Roy in for Warner a bold move, but right one. Warner is an IPL legend & probably league's greatest ✈️ batsman with Gayle, but has looked shadow of best. Will be interesting to see how Roy goes on these pitches & counters inevitable spin he'll be targeted with.

Greetings all from my tea stall in Dhaka. Tamarind, Ginger red tea is good.
As Tweeted early, I would have gone bonkers if Warner was selected ahead of Roy, just hope he gets amongst the runs.

Change of management & Coaches and retaining Warner can do wonders for them. Most of their fanbase have soft corner for Warner.

Man considers Hyderabad his second home and now doesn't even find place in the team. He's going to be released. Feel for Warner😓
