In the 28th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) locked horns with  Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Entering the game, SRH made huge changes to their squad, and one of the biggest ones was the change in the leadership as David Warner was replaced by Kane Williamson as the captain of the team and after being sacked, the Australian batsman didn’t find a place in the playing XI too.

Though Warner was made to sit on the bench, he took every possible step to support the team. He perfectly essayed his role of the 12th man as throughout the game, he was seen carrying drinks for the players. David Warner also gave his valuable inputs to the players and the new skipper, Williamson during the break. Meanwhile, a video featuring the Australian star has gone viral on social media.

In the short clip, Warner can be seen having fun while sitting in the dug-out. In the viral video, David Warner was having a race with his SRH teammates for drinks as the two indulged in a funny and fake fight.

The massive changes in the SRh squad didn’t reap good results as they registered an embarrassing loss against Rajasthan Royals by 55 runs. The game commenced with Hyderbad winning the toss and asking RR to bat first. However, it was a bad day at the office for the Men in Orange as they looked sloppy on the field and failed to take important catches to dismiss the opposition batters.

Batting first, the Royals managed to reach a humongous score of 220 runs owing to Jos Buttler playing a fiery knock of 124 runs in just 64 balls. He was aptly supported by Sanju Samson who added 48 runs to the scoreboard. Chasing 221, none of the SRH batsmen ever managed to get going and score runs as they lost their wickets cheaply. In 20 overs, SRH could score only 165 runs and they lost the match by 55 runs.
