Sunrisers Hyderabad have been one of the most consistent teams in the Indian Premier League. They have reached the playoffs in all of the last five editions of the league while winning one in 2016. In 2020 also, it looked like SRH could fall off the race for the top-four but a late push saw them emerge as the third-best team of the 13th edition.

David Warner has been the skipper of the side for four of the last six editions and that has resulted in an upsurge in performance of the team. There is a genuine camaraderie between the players and that has resulted in the superior performances on the field.

Warner was recently ruled out of the limited-overs series and will be in a race to be fit for the first Test which begins from December 17th in Adelaide. In a statement, Cricket Australia said that Warner, who had suffered a groin injury during the 2nd ODI against India in Sydney on Sunday, will be rested from the remaining ODIs and T20Is so that he can regain fitness for the upcoming four-match Test series against India.

Warner suffered the injury during a fielding mishap in the match when he was trying to save a ball struck by Shikhar Dhawan towards the mid-off in the 4th over India’s innings. Warner dived to stop the ball, but immediately after the dive, he looked in pain.
