David Warner is one of the best batsmen in IPL across the seasons. Recently he is going through a bad phase in his batting form. In IPL 2021 he scored 195 runs so far with a strike rate of 107, which is very low in his standards. He scored 5449 runs so far in IPL with a strike rate of 140.
In the first half of the tournament, he was sacked from the captaincy and left out of the playing XI to give the place to English batsman Johnny Bairstow, however in the second leg of the IPL, Johnny Bairstow withdrew from IPL 2021, which made a free pass to David Warner to come back into the playing XI.
Jason Roy’s Brilliance
But David Warner’s batting form let him down again this year, so the management tried Jason Roy instead of struggling Warner. Jason Roy won the man of the match for his contribution with the bat. So it gives a clear indication that Warner has to sit out for the entire season, probably he will not feature for the Orange army again in the coming time.
After seeing Warner’s omission, dejected SRH fans were in the search of the answer to whether they can see him in the orange jersey again. On SRH’s official Instagram page, the fans are questioning the management about Warner’s absence in the playing XI, even they were able to notice that their favorite player was not even in the stadium.
Warner was left out in the hotel
When one of his fans asked “Is warner in the stadium… we didn’t spot him?!! for that David Warner replied, “Unfortunately won’t be again but keep supporting please”.
And SRH’s coach Trevor Bayliss told the media that SRH can’t make it to the final so they want to give the chance to youngsters and further he told not only warner they have left in the hotel they have left Kedar Jadhav and Shahbaz Nadeem in the hotel.
David Warner is the highest run-getter for the SRH team, he was the orange cup holder in 2015, 2017, 2019 IPL season and from 2014 he was the only player to be in the top 5 run-getters in each season. He led SRH to the IPL title in 2016.
