David Warner reveals “was not explained why I was dropper as SRH captain”

Sunrisers Hyderabad underwent a horrific IPL 2021 and finished the season being consistently associated with the bottommost spot of the leaderboard standings. The orange army apprehends just three positive results in 14-match stretched group stage wander.


In the course of gaining some momentum, SRH experimented with different team combinations and also sacked SRH’s star skipper David Warner midway through the season. Subsequently, NZ white-ball skipper Kane Williamson was announced the superintendent during the Indian leg of schedules in response to SRH’s five losses in the introductory set of six games. Recently, the Australian opener took up the Sports Today platform and talked in detail about the interlinked episodes that saw the downfall of IPL’s one of the most promising skipper.

Warner called-out for lack of communication from the team management, adding that no proper reason was tabled in front of him when team management decided to annul his positioning in playing XI.


“With the utmost respect for the owners, Trevor Baylis, VVS Laxman, Tom Moody, and Muttiah Muralitharan, when a decision is made it should be a unanimous one. You don't know who is the person or who is going for it or who wants you to be selected or not," Warner replied in response to a question about being left-out of the squad.

Warner further pinpointed the fact that several unanswered questions will haunt him in the coming future.

“Another disappointing thing for me was not being explained why I was dropped as a captain. I think if you want to go along with the lines of form, it is a difficult one because I guess what you have done in the past would have some weight moving forward especially playing almost 100 games for a franchise. There are still questions to which I think I'll never get answers, but you have to move on," he added.  

The left-handed destructive batter acknowledged the fact that he would love to find a place in SRH’s team squad in the forthcoming mega auction but it looks like fate has some unrevealed plans.

“I would love to be at SunRisers next year, but time will tell. I would love to be a part of IPL in 2022. I started my career at Delhi and then played for SunRisers. I will be looking forward to whatever opportunity presents itself and give my 100 percent," he further added.

“It's time to look forward to next year and move on where you have another auction. I would love to represent SRH but that decision is not in my hands," said the 34-year-old.

David Warner got a chance to appear in eight of the SRH schedules this season and the Australian zealous batter scored 195 runs in the tenure including two fifty-plus scores. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s poor run in IPL 2021 can be analyzed by the fact that this edition was the lone exhibition in last five years where SRH didn't qualify for the playoffs.
