SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper, David Warner has finally reached Chennai on Friday ahead of the start of IPL 2021. On Saturday, the veteran Australian opener shared a video on his Instagram handle, informing fans that he had woken up after a “massive, massive sleep” but asked his fans to come up with ideas for him to pass time while he quarantines in his hotel room.
Captioning the video of the same on Instagram, David Warner said, “I have just woken up after a massive, massive sleep. Arrived yesterday afternoon here in Chennai. Got, I think, six or seven days to get through the quarantine. I need some ideas, please comment below. Give me some ideas. Whether it’s some funny stuff, silly stuff, whatever it is. Please comment below… Netflix shows anything. I need something, please. Thank you.”

Warner, the most successful overseas batsman in the history of the cash-rich league’s history with a tally of as many as 5,254 runs, led SRH to IPL glory in 2016.
David Warner has been one of the standout performers for the Hyderabad-based franchise for the past several years now, scoring over 500 runs in each of the last six seasons, establishing himself as one of the most consistent performers over the period.
Last year after a slow start, Warner managed to get his form back towards the business end of the tournament and finished the season with 548 runs which turned the fortunes of his team and they eventually managed to qualify for the playoffs, after a streak of wins.
SRH start their IPL 2021 campaign against two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Chennai on April 11. The tournament opener is scheduled to be taking place between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on April 9.
