Sunil Gavaskar statement
Sunil Gavaskar on Monday said opener David Warner will be one of the most sought after players in the IPL-2022 auction following his success in the recent World Cup. Gavaskar said that if Sunrisers Hyderabad decides not to retain him next year, Warner will get a hefty amount. Gavaskar told a news channel, “There will definitely be a lot of demand for Warner. Don’t forget that there are also two new teams. Warner has experience, he also has leadership qualities. He is very energetic on the field. He will definitely be on top of the two new teams or those wanted by any other team as it doesn’t look like Sunrisers is going to retain him.”
Former cricketer Gavaskar said, “To be honest, it is a bit difficult to say anything about this. He was made to sit in the hotel, while some ordinary players, who did not even qualify for the playing XI, were on the field. There must have been more besides the lack of form. As far as Australia is concerned, I think they are probably saying that this kind of thing was needed for the performance we have seen in this World Cup.”
Warner struggled with form in IPL 2021
Warner’s IPL 2021 season was very bad and Sunrisers Hyderabad removed him from the captaincy in the first phase. Whereas in the second phase, he did not get a place in the playing XI in many matches. In such a situation, Warner proved himself in the World Cup and performed well. There were also reports that Warner was not allowed to accompany the team to the stadiums in the UAE before performing well in the last few league games of IPL-2021.David Warner’s great performance in T20 World Cup 2021
