Almost everyone knew before the start of the UAE leg of IPL 2021 that all was not well between David Warner and SRH management, but as the season progressed and Warner was dropped from the team, the differences became way too evident.
Warner, in his numerous replies to the comments of the fans on Instagram, hinted that he was not treated right by the SRH management. And now in his latest comment on SRH captain’s Kane Williamson’s post, Warner wrote that he was surprised Kane didn’t post any photos with him. Warner further wrote that he thought both of them were very “tight”.

However, when the second leg started, it seemed Warner would get a consistent run, but he has dropped again after a couple of failures and on top of that, he was not even named in the matchday squads of SRH any further which meant he couldn’t travel to the ground with the rest of the squad.
If he wanted to travel, David Warner had to travel with the other young players of the SRH set up, who were also not in the matchday squad and had to sit separately from the dugout in the specially designated box for the franchise representatives.
SRH management has been criticized heavily by the fans, not for dropping Warner, but for the way, he was treated after being dropped and Warner’s latest Instagram post suggests that SRH will probably not retain him ahead of the next mega auction either. That might mark the end of a great association of a legendary player with the club he gave it all for.
