David Warner is not only about brutal square cuts and thunderous cover drives. There is a lot more to Warner than just the fierce Australian tag. Ask Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate Rashid Khan and he will give you an insight about the lighter side of the Australian left-hander. While expressing his thoughts on Warner’s departure, Rashid said the one thing that he would miss most about Warner was how he used to say ‘Mashallah and Inshallah’ on the field.

David Warner decided to fly back home to attend Australia’s World Cup preparatory camp starting from May 2.

“Safe flight my bro @davidwarner31.We are already missing you it was an absolutely pleasure to play together again and 1 thing I will miss a lot while you were telling me in ground MASHALLAH and INSHALLAH . See u soon in World Cup. @SunRisers @IPL,” tweeted Rashid along with a photo.

Warner himself posted an emotional message before leaving India. “I cannot express my gratitude enough to the @SunRisers family for your support, not just this season but also for the last year. It’s been a long time waiting but it was great to be back,” the swashbuckling opener posted on his official Twitter handle.

Warner has been in stellar form ever since returning to IPL after a one year gap due to the ball-tampering saga. He is currently the leading run scorer of this IPL with 692 runs and 8 fifties to his name. Warner and Bairstow have been responsible in giving Sunrisers a flying start in almost every game of the tournament. Now with both of them not there, SRH would have their task out in the business end of the tournament.

SRH, currently at No. 4 in the points table with 12 points in as many matches would ideally want to win both of their remaining encounters to ease into the playoffs. SRH will be up against Mumbai Indians on May 2 followed by their last group stage encounter against RCB on May 4.
