Australia opener David Warner has revealed that he will put his name in the 2022 IPL mega auctions. Warner is unlikely to be retained by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the next season. The southpaw, the franchise’s most successful batter and the skipper was stripped off his duties owing to poor show in the first leg. Later, he was also dropped from the team. The IPL 2022 is going to be bigger with the addition of two new teams and a player of the caliber of Warner is likely to fetch big money. However, the southpaw needs to show some form ahead of the mega auction. Currently, he is going through a pretty lean patch.
Warner said he understands that SRH might not retain him thus he will put his name in the auction. “I will put my name in the auction. By the signs of the recent IPL, I won’t be retained by the Sunrisers, so I’m looking forward to a fresh start,” Warner told SEN radio.
Warner revealed getting dropped from the team was a hard pill to swallow. “I kind of laughed at the reasoning, that two guys were hitting the ball out of the middle a little bit better than I was. Given that when you’re playing the game you’re playing the scenario.
“Obviously there are a lot of moving parts around there. What you have to do as a professional athlete is take it on the chin and do everything you can for the team.
While many expected Warner to come back hard in the 20-20 Wold Cup, the southpaw has so far disappointed his fans. He will have another opportunity when he steps out to bat against Sri Lanka.
