IPL 2020| CSK team preview: MS Dhoni searches inspiration for his troops once more
17 Sep 2020
Australia opener and former Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner has finally opened up about him being removed from the SRH captaincy and then getting dropped from the side.
In an interview to Economic Times, Warner said, “When you are dropped from the team you have loved the most for years without any real fault of yours and stripped of captaincy without being given a reason, it hurts. At the same time there are no complaints. The fans in India have always been there for me.”
Interestingly, Warner had led the Hyderabad-based franchise to the IPL title back in 2016 when they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final.
Warner further added that he might have been out of form then but he was pushing his limits during the practice sessions.
“Whatever may have been the reason for me not finding a spot in an IPL team, I can tell you I was training the hardest I ever did. I didn’t miss a single day. I was batting extremely well in the nets,” he added.
The left-handed batsman did turn it around for himself in the T20 World Cup after he was adjudged the Man of the tournament as Australia lifted their first-ever T20 title.
