David Warner TikTok Video: The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) finally got suspended indefinitely after a massive Covid-19 outbreak within the team bio-bubbles. Most of the players have already left for their homes to stay with their families in these testing times while the Australian cricketers are left with no choice than to stay in India until May 15 that is the date when the travel ban imposed by Australia ends. Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner is current spending his time in the team hotel room while reminding the fans of his entertaining TikTok viral video days.
While being stranded in a hotel room in Delhi, David Warner took to his Instagram Story sharing videos of himself watching popular Indian songs on TV. The list of songs which Warner played in his Instagram story was Butta Bomma, Balla Balla, Muqabla and Sauda Khara Khara. Incidentally, when the pandemic hit the world in April, 2020, Warner hogged the limelight while shaking a leg with his wife and daughter on the famous Telegu movie song, Butta Bomma.
After managing to score 193 runs in 6 matches at a strike-rate of 110.28, David Warner was surprisingly dropped from the SRH captaincy role and the playing XI for the game against Rajasthan Royals as well. Earlier the Sunrisers Hyderabad Director of Cricket Tom Moody stated that Warner was ‘shocked’ and ‘disappointed’ on being removed as the captain. Moody also mentioned that dropping the Aussie opener from the playing XI was part of a tactical change for the SRH future in the competition.
“We had to make the hard call. Somebody has to miss out and unfortunately, it’s him. He’s shocked and disappointed. Anyone would be disappointed. He has come to terms with the logic behind what we want to achieve from a franchise’s perspective,” Tom Moody was quoted as saying.
“He has rallied around the team and more importantly the team has rallied around him. I don’t think what’s happened in the past isn’t as relevant and we have made some significant changes in the group in the last 24-48 hours,” Moody added.
“He (David Warner) is not going to be playing in this game and that’s purely a decision based on the combination. We’ve come to the conclusion that at this stage two overseas bat, an all-rounder and Rashid Khan is our best combination,” he concluded.
