Australia’s David Warner was part of Sunrisers Hyderabad for a long time where he shared the dressing room with a lot of big-name cricketers. Among them was Kane Williamson, the New Zealand skipper, whom he passed on his captaincy after he was removed from the position. Not only was Warner removed, but he was also dropped from the playing eleven. Meanwhile, the Australian is all set to start the IPL with a new team—Delhi Capitals when the IPL resumes in 2022. Prior to that, Warner has shared a heartfelt note for Williamson on Instagram.
“Going to miss my breakfast time with the Williamson’s and I will miss playing cricket with you brother!!”
