IPL 2022 Auction: The Australian star opener David Warner has been facing a lean patch in his career for the last few months & due to his below-the-par performance, he wasn’t included in SRH’s squad for the UAE leg of the IPL 2021.
Meanwhile, David Warner believes that his stint with the SRH squad is over. He further added that he is looking ahead to make a fresh start in the IPL 2022. He also said that he will put his name for the IPL 2022 auction. While speaking on SEN Radio, Warner said that the SRH team management has still not communicated the reason for dropping him from the SRH squad for the UAE leg of the IPL 2021.
He admitted that things didn’t go in his favor last season & he is pretty sure that the SRH squad will not retain him for the future editions of the IPL. Here’s what he said, “Obviously, there are a lot of moving parts around there. What you have to do as a professional athlete is take it on the chin and do everything you can for the team. Not being able to go there, run drinks, and be around was when it sort of hit home that it could be personal, and I’m still yet to get those answers. I will put my name in the auction. By the signs of the recent IPL, I won’t be retained by the Sunrisers, so I’m looking forward to a fresh start.”
David Warner’s Performance in IPL 2021:
The Australian opener has contributed towards the success of SRH as a captain as well as a player. However, his latest stint in the IPL 2021 was absolutely not up to the mark. Due to his consistent poor run in the IPL 2021 fixtures, Warner has been removed from captaincy in the first half of the IPL 2021.
David Warner also failed to retain his position in SRH’s Playing XI after failing to make an impact in the initial matches of the SRH during the UAE leg. He amassed 195 runs from 8 matches in the IPL in 2021 and had an underwhelming strike rate of 107.73 to his name.
