David Warner posted an emotional message on Instagram on Friday, thanking his supporters Sunrisers Hyderabad. The message came on a day when SRH is playing its final match Against Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season. Warner has not been included in the playing XI. He played his last match for SRH against Punjab Kings on 25 September. “Thank you for the memories made. To all the fans, you have always been a driving force for our team to give 100%. I can’t thank you enough enough for the support shown. It’s been a wonderful ride.” .My family and I are going to miss you all!!SRH fans support.
Warner has had a troubled season at SRH, in which he was dropped from the captaincy of the franchise before being dropped from the side. The left-handed Australian opener has suffered one of his worst IPL seasons this year, scoring 195 runs in 8 matches with just two half-centuries to his name. Warner’s performance has had a huge impact on SRH’s season as Will is at the bottom of the points table despite the result of his last match.
Warner holds the record for the most runs for a franchise in the IPL, with 4014 runs in his kitty from just 95 matches at an average of 49.55. He has scored two centuries and forty fifties for the franchise since joining them in 2014. He also captained SRH to their only IPL title, when the Hyderabad team defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final in 2016.
With a big auction looming next season, there are signs that Warner may have decided to move on from the franchise.
