The Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner recently trolled his teammate Rashid Khan on Twitter. The Afghan leg-spinner had posted a photo where he was seen posing for a selfie in a black cultural dress. Warner replied to the pic and said “Nice selfie sir”. But there were two laughing emojis with the compliment which meant it was more a troll than an appreciation.

Rashid though took the comment as a compliment and replied by thanking his captain and said he was missing him. Here is the series of tweets that the duo exchanged.

Sunrisers Hyderabad might have been knocked out of the IPL after losing to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator match but the captain David Warner had done a tremendous for them. He scored 641 runs in 14 matches at an average of 58.27 and ended up as the leading run-scorer in the tournament. The Australian also notched up a century and 4 half-centuries and was instrumental in the team’s success.

This was the fourth time in a row that Warner ended up as the leading run-getter for SRH. He had played a pivotal role in his team’s triumph last year and this season as well, he played a key role in taking his side to the playoffs.

Rashid, on the other hand, made the limelights after he was bagged by the franchise from the auction for a whopping bid of INR 4 crore. The leg-spinner did full justice to his price tag and accounted for 17 wickets in 14 matches. He went for just 6.63 runs an over which is terrific in the shortest format of the game. At one stage, he was the leading wicket-taker in the league before his teammate Bhuvneshwar Kumar overtook him.

The best part about his bowling was that he claimed the wickets of some of the top quality batsmen like Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Brendon McCullum and Suresh Raina. The 18-year-old troubled almost every batsman that he bowled at and his variations proved to be unplayable at times.
