Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are definitely missing their regular captain David Warner in the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). More than the team, the cricketer himself is regretting it to miss out on the action after he was banned by Cricket Australia (CA) for one year after which even BCCI barred him from playing in the IPL. However, the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) has even stopped him from visiting India in order to support his team which left a lot of SRH fans disappointed.
Warner was found guilty by CA in the ball-tampering scandal which shocked the cricketing fraternity in March. The stalwarts like Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft were also banned for a significant period along with him. All of them have felt sorry for their sin and even apologized for the same as well to the cricket fans and their nations for their actions during the Cape Town Test match against South Africa.
David Warner has been clearly indicated during that at some stage he will visit India to support his team and cheer for them while sitting in the stands. But a Twitter user named ‘Srujana Konakanchi has revealed her chat with Warner’s wife Candice in which she has informed that BCCI has denied his request to visit India and support Sunrisers.
“He was wanting to come over but unfortunately the BCCI have stopped him from coming over to watch. He will be back next year. Even he is disappointed as he wanted his team to support the team he loves,” Candice’s replies read. It is surprising to know that he was stopped from watching an IPL game in India. Maybe the BCCI didn’t want any controversy regarding the incident to mar the ongoing tournament but it is unfair on Warner that he was denied a chance to support his team.
Here’s the tweet:
#Day29 #WarnerOffField Now this is surprising !! @davidwarner31 wish to be here yet BCCI isn't okay with it? When @CountyChamp has given the green signal for players to come down and play, why not BCCI at least let them watch and support? @CandyFalzon @tarun_0707 @SunRisersC pic.twitter.com/MlppUahsBi
