But before packing his bags, the SRH skipper left a heartfelt note for his fans, appreciating their support over the past couple of months.

The defending champions crashed out of the cash-rich as they lost to two-time champions Kolkata by 7 wickets in a rain-truncated match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Warner took to social media to thank all the Hyderabad fans for their support throughout the tournament. Warner's post read: "Thanks to all the @SunRisers fans for all your support. It means a lot to us as a franchise and players."

The southpaw expressed his disappointment for not being able to successfully defend their title but he also said the tried tried their best. His post read: "Thanks to India and @SunRisers for your hospitality the last few months. We couldn't get the job done but we tried our best. 🙏"

With 641 runs in 14 games, Warner still leads the race as far as most runs scored in the league is concerned. Second on the Orange Cap list is Gautam Gambhir who has 486 runs in 15 matches.

However, Warner's runs in the end could help them seal a place in the final as they crashed out in the first qualifier itself. However, the Aussie will be happy with his personal performance and would like to take the momentum into the Champions Trophy 2017 as well.
