The bad behavior of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team management with David Warner is in the headlines these days. This team has been out of the race for the playoffs of IPL 2021. Warner was removed from the captaincy by Hyderabad after the poor performance. Then he was also dropped from the playing XI. The matches are being played in UAE when IPL 2021 resumes and even here David Warner is not visible at the stadium. It has come to light that the team management of Sunrisers Hyderabad did not allow Warner to go to the stadium. Meanwhile, another news is coming out. Former South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has also disclosed such behavior. He has said that the same thing happened to him in IPL 2020.
In a conversation with ESPNcricinfo, Dale Steyn while talking about the matter related to Warner said, ‘Everyone is seeing that Warner is not coming on the field, which is understandable because the team wants to give opportunities to the youngsters. They know they don’t have chances in the tournament. In such a situation, only a few players can be taken on the field. I know, I fell victim to this rule with RCB in IPL 2020. I wanted to go on the field, but if there is a fixed limit for carrying players, then only as many can be taken. Apart from these, players are not allowed on the field. That’s why they might be doing this.
