"One of my favorite things to do is lead this unbelieveable franchise @sunrisershyd the entire team from fans. Owners, staff, players and ground staff. We have always had an amazing bunch of people be apart of the franchise and I am looking forward to the coming season," Warner wrote in his Instagram post.
In 2016, Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad to glory, defeating Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight runs in the grand final. Since then, the franchise has been performing brilliantly. In 2018, Warner was undergoing a ban from international cricket, Kane Williamson stood up in his absence and led the team to the final. But they lost, courtesy of a splendid century from Shane Watson.
Warner returned back to lead the team in 2019 and in 2020, his team made the qualifiers and lost to Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2.
The 34-year-old sustained a groin injury during the ODI series against India and missed the following T20I series. He did made a comeback for the Test series, but his performances weren't upto the mark.
Just to clarify a comment I made on commentary last night, that “My Groin”will need on going treatment and will have an annoying pain for at least 6-9 months. I am returning to play for NSW on the 4th March 2021 #horsesmouth
