    IPL 2018: David Warner Wishes SRH Ahead of Qualifier Against CSK

    Former Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner sent his wishes to Sunrisers Hyderabad team ahead of the first qualifier, where they will take on MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings.

    Hyderabad seem to have lost a bit of form after a blazing start but they still finished on the top of the table.

    Warner is missing the IPL because of the ball tampering scandal and in his absence New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is leading the team. Warner and Williamson are known to be close friends.

    The Australian opener tweeted saying, "Good luck to @SunRisers tonight, keep playing well gentlemen. Been simply outstanding and being well lead by The great man himself Kane 👍👍"

    The yellow brigade have been on a roll since making their comeback to the IPL fold after serving a two-year-ban, and have rarely lost the momentum this season with the old guards and new sensations firing in unison.

    In their final league game at their adopted home ground in Pune on Sunday, CSK rode on Suresh Raina's gutsy half century to not only romp home by five wickets but also stop Kings XI Punjab from entering the play-offs.

    On the other hand, the Sunrisers have been on a three-game losing run, having already sealed their play-off spot with a victory on May 10 against Delhi Daredevils.

    Interestingly, it was the CSK who halted Sunrisers' six-game winning streak with a comprehensive eight-wicket drubbing on May 13 in Pune.
