RR vs SRH IPL: Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals are set to lock horns at the Feroz Shah Kotla in a pivotal IPL 2021 match. Since this is a head-to-head game, the stakes are high and neither team can ill-afford to drop this game.

But the jaw-dropping decision and a move that caused a stir across social media platforms involve David Warner. Believe it or not, Sunrisers Hyderbad have dropped Warner from their playing 11. The Australian is a big-name player, no doubt about that, but he is not the same player anymore, at least this season. He is finding it hard to score, at the 110 strike rate.

Mohammed Nabi replaced Warner as the fourth overseas player in SRH Playing 11 for the game against RR.
