David Warner is not only renowned for his explosive batting style but also for the lighter side that he has, as revealed by his teammate Rashid Khan. Recently Rashid gave an insight on Warner’s departure as he decided to fly back home to attend Australia’s World Cup preparatory camp starting from May 2.
Rashid wished Warner a safe journey on Twitter, while also revealing the one thing he will miss the most about David Warner in IPL. Posting an image of himself alongside Warner and his SRH and Afghanistan teammate Mohammad Nabi, Rashid wrote, “Safe flight my bro @davidwarner31.We are already missing you it was an absolutely[sic] pleasure to play together again and 1 thing I will miss a lot while you were telling me in ground MASHALLAH and INSHALLAH . See u soon in World Cup.”

Elsewhere, after a stunning knock in his last game in the IPL 2019, Warner applauded the crowd after being dismissed and penned a heartfelt wish for his franchise and all the fans. He wrote, “I cannot express my gratitude enough to the @SunRisers family for your support, not just this season but also for the last year. It’s been a long time waiting but it was great to be back. ”
Ever since Warner came back to play in the IPL after a 12-month lay-off due to the ball-tampering saga, he has been phenomenal. He and Bairstow have been responsible for giving Sunrisers a flying start in almost every game of the tournament. Meanwhile the 32-year-old is the leading run scorer of this IPL with 692 runs and 8 fifties to his name. Now, with Warner and Bairstow both gone, SRH have their task cut to qualify for the playoffs without their stalwarts.
They currently sit in fourth place, with 12 points from as many games and will need to win both their remaining matches starting with the crucial match against Mumbai Indians on 2nd May before drawing their campaign to a close with their fixture against RCB on May 4.
