There is still time left before players begin preparations for Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL). However, Australian batsman David Warner is ready for IPL 2020, at least on social media. The recently appointed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain took to Instagram and posted an old photo of him and his IPL teammate Rashid Khan. In the picture, posted by Warner, he and Khan can be seen celebrating a fall of a wicket. What's interesting is that in this year's IPL, players will have to follow social distancing norms and hugging teammates may not be allowed.
