Australia opener David Warner on Tuesday took a dig at his former Indian Premier League franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad. Ahead of the mega IPL 2022 auction, SRH released Warner, which led him to his only title win in 2016. Things did not go as planned for SRH in the last season of the IPL, where they finished at the bottom of the points table in the form of Warner. He was also sacked as captain midway through the tournament.

Warner made fun of SRH when a fan asked newly-appointed head coach Tom Moody if the team would have a good auction next year.

Warner responded to a fan’s tweet, tweeting, “She’s in doubt.”

SRH responded to their former captain on Twitter and congratulated him on Australia’s Ashes win and hoped that the left-hander will have a good IPL 2022 auction when he hits the hammer next year.

“Congratulations Davy on winning the Ashes – looks like you are back in form and enjoying the after party! On the other hand, we hope your auction goes well,” tweeted the official Twitter handle of SRH .

Australia on Tuesday took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the three-match series while retaining the Ashes by winning the Boxing Day Test against England.

After losing the captaincy to Kane Williamson in the middle of IPL 2021, Warner was also dropped from the playing XI in the final leg of the tournament. He had a tough time with the bat last season where he scored just 195 runs in eight matches.

However, the disastrous opener made a comeback and found his form in the 2021 T20 World Cup where he was also adjudged the Player of the Tournament. He continued his good form in the ongoing Ashes series with 240 runs in four innings.
