Dropping Warner was not related to cricket: SRH batting coach

SunRisers Hyderabad batting coach Brad Haddin has stated that the decision to drop Australia opener David Warner from the IPL team playing XI midway was not related to cricket and his form.

“I tell you what, it was not a cricket decision that he was not playing for SunRisers Hyderabad. I think the one thing you have to realise about David is that he was not out of form, he was out of match practice. They had a long break. He did not go to Bangladesh or the West Indies. But he turned up in a really good headspace. He was hitting the ball well, circumstances were out of our control, even the coaching staff,” Haddin said on the Grade Cricketers Podcast.

Under Warner’s captaincy, SRH won their maiden IPL title in 2016 where they won a close-game against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.

“But it was not because he was out of form. All he needed was some match time. He hit the ball well. He just needed to spend some time in the middle to get at the rhythm again. As the tournament went on, you saw his class. He got a bit of rhythm back into his game and he was good to watch,” he added.

Warner was the player of the tournament in ICC Men’s T20 World Cup where Australia won their maiden trophy by defeating New Zealand in the final by 8 wickets.
