David Warner was not allowed to travel with team during CSK game


David Warner, the veteran Australian opener, has had a tough time of it recently. He was dismissed from the SunRisers Hyderabad team for his inability to consistently produce. And he wasn't even permitted to see his club play Chennai Super Kings, according to sources (CSK).

Warner, on the other hand, has long been a vital member of SRH's team and a reliable performer. However, because of his poor performance, he was relieved of his leadership in the first phase of the IPL 2021. And he was succeeded as captain by Kane Williamson. Warner had two opportunities in the UAE leg, but he could only muster a score of 0 and 2 in both innings, ultimately being dropped from the playing XI.

And now that he's not in the dugout, there's a lot of discussions. This was brought to our attention by Twitter user Mufaddal Vohra, who tweeted about it. Last night's game, David Warner was not permitted to go to the stadium with the squad.

However, SRH has already out of the playoffs race this season. They once again lost to CSK. After the loss, Kane Williamson said: “Not quite enough runs. It wasn’t an easy surface and although we didn’t get enough we showed a fighting spirit in the last quarter with the ball. We need 10-15 extra runs with the bat though and we need to make those small changes."

"After the powerplay, we were 40-something and although you feel like you want more, it was a good start on that surface. You want to score a few more runs though, but we saw some nice contributions from the lower order.”

“We need to improve. This team is at the top of the table. If you make better decisions with the bat, the final score could have been a little more. CSK played really well. It looked challenging and variable. We are back to the drawing board. Although every match is about the W or the L against your name, you do look at the growth of the team. This season has been a bit disjointed given that it was played in two halves, but we’ll look to grow and build some momentum,” he concluded.
