The banned Australian cricketer David Warner is not featuring in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). He was not allowed to play in the cash-rich tournament after Cricket Australia (CA) suspended him for a period of one year following his involvement in the ball tampering saga in Cape Town. Despite not playing, the left-hander has been following his team’s progress closely and had a lovely message for SRH ahead of the qualifiers.
He took to his official Instagram handle and wished the Orange Army all the luck in the world for their game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Tuesday. Warner went on to praise Kane Williamson who has led admirably well in his absence. However, his post melted the heart of his fans who are missing him so much. He was such an important part of the franchise in the last couple of years and had raked a lot of runs for his team.
David Warner was overwhelmed after reading all the comments of his fans who were missing him badly in the IPL. He thanked everyone for all the support and went on to say that he will make a come back next year. The Australian was also confident of his team winning the coveted title. “Thanks, everyone for your kind comments, God bless and the girls and I are cheering @sunrisershyd on and will see you next year. Let’s bring the trophy back to Hyderabad in a few days @candywarner1,” his comment read.
As it turned out, CSK romped home in a thrilling encounter courtesy of Faf du Plessis who fought until the end for his team and played a heroic knock of 67 runs off just 42 deliveries. Despite their batsmen not doing well, the bowlers of SRH made the score look like a monumental one and had left the opposition reeling at 92/7 at one stage. But they failed to seal the game and paid the price for the same.
