Following a string of poor returns with the bat in Indian Premier League 2021, David Warner has been shown the bench by the Sunrisers Hyderabad management for their match against Rajasthan Royals at the Dubai International Stadium. England opener Jason Roy has been handed his debut cap as he replaces the veteran Aussie.
Warner scored 0 and 2 on his return to Sunrisers playing XI in the UAE which took his tally to a hardly inspiring 195 runs this season in eight innings at a strike rate of 107.73 and average of 24.37. The figures are presently his worst in any IPL season.
A big day for @JasonRoy20 as he makes his debut for the #Risers tonight. Go well, Jason! #SRHvRR #OrangeArmy #OrangeOrNothing #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/bzRXTDWFOI
