Despite being one of the greatest players to have played for the franchise, David Warner was to an extent, ill-treated by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the fourteenth edition of the league. Not only was he stripped of his captaincy, but he was dropped from the XI as well. This angered several cricket fans across the globe.

To add to that, the Hyderabad-based franchise chose not to retain him ahead of the upcoming IPL 2021 mega auction. The speculations regarding a rift between the player and the team further strengthened after the Aussie opener went on to take a sly dig at his former franchise on Twitter. While a fan had replied to Tom Moody’s tweet, which was about the third Ashes Test match, which got completed today morning, he asked the SRH head coach to have a good auction for the team.

“How about having a good auction for srh tom? Please?” read the user’s tweet. While replying to this tweet, the former SRH skipper tried to ridicule the idea of the team doing well in the upcoming auction. This slander instantly became viral as well.

Several fans want David Warner in their favourite IPL franchise

“Baha doubt it” read David Warner’s tweet, which was a reply to the tweet asking the former Aussie cricketer to have a good auction for the Williamson-led side. Thus, several fans reacted to it and were apparently shocked by the bluntness of the SRH legend. Many users replied to his tweet and started speculating him joining a new franchise ahead of the fifteenth edition of the league.

 

It is to be remembered that the 35-year-old was a popular figure in Hyderabad, and went on to be synonymous with the orange army. However, after his poor form in the IPL 2021, his franchise announced Kane Williamson as their new captain and axed him. They went on to bench him as well.

Post the second phase of IPL 2021, the dynamic opener was superb in the T20 WC 2021 and was one of the main reasons why Australia won their maiden WC in the shortest format of the game. As a matter of fact, he went on to win the player of the series award too. Thus, several teams would want to buy him in the IPL 2021 mega auction.
