SRH coach says ‘Warner is watching the game from his hotel’: Sunrisers Hyderabad head coach almost confirms that David Warner is unlikely to return to XI at the 2021 IPL. Australia’s first match was knocked out of SRH XI as the Hyderabad-based franchise made up to four changes against Rajasthan Royals. Luckily, Warner’s replacement Jason Roy was one of the biggest stars in SRH’s victory at Sevenwicket, his second in 10 games this season, in Dubai on Monday.
The decision to lose David Warner for the RR match was well thought out. As the left-hander did not travel to the stadium with the team. And instead watched the match from his hotel room.
SRH coach says ‘Warner is watching the game from his hotel’: If Bayliss was asking for the reasons for Warner’s exclusion, Bayliss said. The SRH Senh think tank wanted to give young people a lot of time.
“We can’t make the final so have made a decision that we want the young players to experience not just the matches but time at the ground, around the set-up, and for this match, we made the decision. He was not the only experience player we left back at the hotel,” Bayliss said during a post-match press conference.
The World Cup coach added that this experiment with youngsters is likely to continue in future games. Warner, who has 5,449 IPL runs and is one of the most consistent players overseas. Has woefully few runs this year. He has only 195 runs in 8 games this year. And his hit rate of 107.73 is by far the worst of his career in the IPL.
