Australian opener David Warner has been going through a tough time now. Warner was dropped by the SRH team management after he failed to perform in a constant basis. If reports are to be believed, then Warner wasn’t allowed to accompany his teammates in the match against Chennai Super Kings last night.
David Warner has been one of the most consistent run scorers for SRH in the past six seasons. The left-handed batsmen was sacked from captaincy duties during the 1st leg of the season. Kane Williamson was given the responsibility of leading the SRH side for the rest of the season. Warner failed to score with the bat as well. His last two scores in the UAE leg are 0 & 2.
David Warner’s absence in the SRH dugout for the last two matches has created a lot of debate. It is certainly a disgrace for a player who has done so much for the franchise over the past seasons.
Mufaddal Vohra, a Twitter user has tweeted about this. “David Warner wasn’t even allowed to travel with the team to the stadium last night for the game.”
This news is also confirmed by a popular sports journalist Boria Majumdar.
SRH are out of the playoffs race with 4 points from 11 matches so far. SRH lost a game against CSK last night.
After the loss, Kane Williamson said: “Not quite enough runs. It wasn’t an easy surface and although we didn’t get enough, we showed a fighting spirit in the last quarter with the ball. We need 10-15 extra runs with the bat though and we need to make those small changes. After the powerplay we were 40-something and although you feel like you want more, it was a good start on that surface. You want to score a few more runs though, but we saw some nice contributions from the lower order.”
“We need to improve. This team is at the top of the table. If you make better decisions with the bat, the final score could have been a little more. CSK played really well. It looked challenging and variable. We are back to the drawing board. Although every match is about the W or the L against your name, you do look at the growth of the team. This season has been a bit disjointed given that it was played in two halves, but we’ll look to grow and build some momentum,” he concluded.
