David Warner, who once made Sunrisers Hyderabad champion in the Indian Premier League (IPL), was not treated well by the franchise in the 14th season of the IPL. This is the reason that now he will not play for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022. Australian legend David Warner has announced that he wants to get off to a fresh start in the new season.
Actually, Sunrisers Hyderabad snatched the captaincy from David Warner after 6 matches of IPL 2021. The surprising thing was that in the last half a dozen matches, he was dropped from the team. The reason behind this was definitely his form and taking away the captaincy meant that the team was not performing well. However, even under the captaincy of Kane Williamson, the Hyderabad team could not do much.
On the other hand, David Warner, who is playing for his team in the T20 World Cup, has made it clear that his road is over with Sunrisers Hyderabad and he will find himself in the mega auction. David Warner said on Sen Radio, “I will put my name in the auction. As per the recent IPL indications, I will not be retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad, so I am looking forward to a fresh start.”
Now let’s talk about which team can bid on Sunrisers Hyderabad and how new teams can add David Warner without any auction. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has allowed two new IPL teams, Lucknow and Ahmedabad, that they can pick three players each before the auction and they can also have one foreigner each.
In this way, David Warner can be picked by the team of Lucknow or Ahmedabad and if he goes into action, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings will have an eye on David Warner, as he provides the option of captaincy in addition to the option of opening. Apart from this, the eyes of Kolkata Knight Riders can also be on David Warner, because Eoin Morgan’s form has not been good this year.
