David Warner's brother Steven Warner slams SRH after dropping him from the team
Sunrisers Hyderabad had a decent season in the last edition of the Indian Premier League. They went on to finish at the third spot under the captaincy of David Warner.
In IPL 2020, they qualified for the playoffs where they knocked the Royal Challengers Bangalore out of the tournament in the eliminator. However, they were knocked out by Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier.
However, they have failed to perform up to the expectations in the ongoing season of the cash-rich T20 league. SRH lost four consecutive games and is struggling to win the games.
Sunrisers Hyderabad dropped David Warner from the leadership and team as well. Kane Williamson has been appointed as the new captain for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
After that, Steven Warner, brother of David Warner slammed SRH on Instagram for dropping him from the side and wrote "Leave this here @sunrisershyd a bloke that has carried this team for years, your openers aren’t the issues how about getting a decent middle-order that scores some runs."
Here is the picture:

Warner should take a transfer to different team— cn (@charan96161963) May 2, 2021
Even warner was talking bad about SRH management in the post match presentation, so I think the management and warner have some rift going on 😑— Prasad Pagadala (@Prasad14Pagadal) May 2, 2021
Sunrises Hyderabad fully deserve this thumping for what they've done to David Warner.— Sabeeha Majid 🏏 (@SabeehaMajid) May 2, 2021

Removing David Warner proven even more disastrous for Sunrisers Hyderabad.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 2, 2021
Warner is too emotionally attached to SRH. He literally carried this whole team on his own and won them their only trophy in 2016. Haven't seen any player's family supporting and celebrating the success of their team the way Warner's family did— CricKing Wear Mask😷😷 (@cricking333) May 2, 2021
SRH lost their last game against Rajasthan Royals:
In their last game against Rajasthan Royals, SRH had to chase a mammoth target of 221 runs. both the openers Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow got a good start in the powerplay and scored 57 runs off it.
They failed to convert their starts to big ones and returned to the pavilion with the numbers of 31 and 30 respectively. Kane Williamson also failed to handle the pressure and departed after scoring 20 runs from 21 balls.
Then once again, the middle-order of Sunrisers Hyderabad didn't live up to the expectations of the fans and the team management as well.
None of them has scored even 20 runs for the side. Mustafizur Rahman and Chris Morris had been the best with the ball for Rajasthan Royals as they bagged 3 wickets each to their name. In the end, they won the game with a margin of 55 runs.
The hero of Rajasthan Royals, Jos Buttler was awarded the Man of the Match for his spectacular batting show.
