On Monday, after the scorching and fabulous win over the Rajasthan Royals in Match 39 of the Indian Premier League held in Dubai International Stadium, there were speculations regarding opening batsmen David Warner’s position in the team franchise and his contributions, as head coach Trevor Bayliss drops very shocking news about it mentioning that young players should be given more time seeing the performance of Warner throughout this tournament. Fans were very upset about his performance and contributions as he failed to deliver an all-star performance. SRH who are currently at the bottom of the points table recorded their second win without the services of David Warner.
The current Australian opener was again dropped from the initial playing eleven squad by head coach and staff management, due to the dip in his performance and form as he failed to tick the boxes as per his team’s target. He just scored a low 195 runs in the last eight matches, which is his worst performance as he is always considered as an orange cap contender for the Indian Premier League.
His strike rate of 107.73 is considered the lowest compared to the performance in the past number of years. Since 2014, he has been scoring over 500 runs every year in the Indian Premier League. He also lead his team to the trophy in 2016, after beating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final.
When asked about any updates on David Warner, head coach Trevor Bayliss in the press conference mentioned “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,” reports India Today.
