 David Warner posts heartfelt message for Sunrisers Hyderabad

Signing off in style, David Warner played his last match for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season but his absence will be felt in the SRH squad. His brilliant knock (81) played a pivotal role in helping Sunrisers Hyderabad move a step closer to the play-offs after they defeated Kings XI Punjab.

Warner was in imperious form in the ongoing IPL and signed off his season with 692 runs, the highest so far in the tournament, before heading home for World Cup preparations. Before heading Down Under, Warner posted a heartfelt message for the Orange Army and his teammates in the Hyderabad camp. 

"I can not express my gratitude enough to the @sunrisershyd family for your support, not just this season but also for the last year. It’s been a long time waiting but it was great to be back amongst the boys. Owners, support staff, players, social media team and the fans thank you very much for welcoming me back with open arms. I thoroughly enjoyed being back out there swinging that willow. Good luck to the guys for the rest of the tournament and finish." 

David's wife Candice also took to Instagram to congratulate her husband on a fine innings, saying, 'the girls and I are forever proud of you'.

Playing his last match of season on Monday night before heading home for World Cup preparations, Australia's Warner struck a belligerent 81 off 56 balls to complete his IPL 2019 campaign with 692 runs, the highest so far in the tournament, and guided Sunrisers Hyderabad to a 45-run win over Kings XI Punjab. 

Warner along with Steve Smith were handed 12-month bans by Cricket Australia for their role in ball-tampering in South Africa last year, a punishment which both the players have already served.

Post the ban, Warner was in imperious form in the ongoing IPL and is the current 'Orange Cap' holder.

"I have had time off to work harder at my game. Put the bat down for 16-18 weeks and just worked hard on being the best father and best husband, that has worked for me. Yeah, I try to be the funny man in the team, the prankster.

"It's obviously great to get out there and do your job properly. We've got a great deck to bat on. The groundstaff have worked tirelessly to prepare good wickets and then it's about going back to basics and backing your instincts," said Warner.
