David Warner's absence from the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) squad has been one of the main talking points around their match against Rajasthan Royals on Monday. The Australian opener was earlier stripped off the SRH captaincy after a poor start to this years' IPL with Kane Williamson replacing him. However, with the southpaw not finding form at all even in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, he was dropped from the squad to play against Rajasthan Royals. Post this development, it came into the light that he was not even present at the stadium and when a fan enquired about this on Instagram, Warner replied saying, "Unfortunately won't be again but keep supporting please." This indicates that his time at SRH might have come to an end, which opens up the possibility of him entering the mega auctions next year.
Warner was also seen uploading Instagram stories of him watching SRH's match where Jason Roy and Kane Williamson both struck fifties to help the 2016 champions register their second win this season.
Take a look at this below:
However, fans were not happy with this development and criticised Sunrisers Hyderabad management for their poor treatment of a player who won them their only IPL trophy, in 2016. Check out some reactions below:
