Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner is elated at the support his team has received from fans in IPL 2017. The Australian dynmaite took to Twitter to express his gratitude to Sunrisers Hyderabad fans after the defending champions stunned table-toppers Mumbai Indians by seven wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal on Monday.

“A solid performance tonight by our lads @SunRisers well played to all. Thanks to our fans for coming to the games. Appreciate the support,” Warner tweeted.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have 15 points from 13 games and are placed fourth in the points table with Kings XI Punjab close on their heels with 10 points from 11 games.

SRH play Gujarat Lions on May 13 and a win in their next contest is crucial to bolster their qualification chances. (SCHEDULE)

Sunrisers Hyderabad have suffered just one defeat at home in this IPL -- losing to Rising Pune Supergiant. However, Warner & Co bounced back to win their next tie at home against Mumbai Indians. (RESULTS)

Sunrisers Hyderabad would be particularly pleased with the win over Mumbai Indians as Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques steered the team to successfully chase down 139-run target despite losing their skipper and IPL-10 top run-getter David Warner in the second over of their innings.
