Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag has taken on Sunrisers Hyderabad for releasing David Warner.
Warner left the franchise after several years of exceptional display. He was captain of Hyderabad from 2015 to much of the 2021 season, establishing himself as one of the batters in IPL and leading the franchise to their only title in 2016.
However, he was first sacked and then dropped from the Playing XI after a fallout with the team management in IPL 2021. Delhi Capitals bought him in the mega auction.
Sehwag said releasing Warner was Hyderabad’s ‘biggest mistake’ and the team management should have solved the issues instead of letting him go.
“Releasing David Warner has been Sunrisers Hyderabad’s biggest mistake. Anyone can have a poor season in IPL. Virat’s season has been really bad. That doesn’t mean Bangalore must release him,” he said.
