Sunrisers Hyderabad players and support staff say the team will miss the prolific David Warner, who left Indian shores on Tuesday to join Australia's World Cup preparation camp, at the business end of the Indian Premier League.
Warner, who recently returned to competitive cricket after serving out a one-year ban for ball tampering, is in Australia's 15-member squad for the mega event.
"I can not express my gratitude enough to the @SunRisers family for your support, not just this season but also for the last year. It's been a long time waiting but it was great to be back," the swashbuckling opener posted on his official Twitter handle.
Warner, who is the leading run-scorer in this IPL, will not play any further part in Sunrisers's matches this season. He amassed a staggering 692 runs in the ongoing edition of the cash-rich T20 league.
Afghanistan and SRH spinner Rashid Khan tweeted that he would miss Warner in the team.
"Safe flight my bro @davidwarner31.We are already missing you it was an absolutely pleasure to play together again and 1 thing I will miss a lot while you were telling me in ground MASHALLAH and INSHALLAH . See u soon in World Cup. @SunRisers @IPL," tweeted Rashid along with a photo.
Sunrisers head coach Tom Moody also lavished praise on his countryman for the great character and resilience shown by him.
"Another phenomenal @IPL for @davidwarner31, takes more than skill to emerge from the recent past it shows great character, resilience and determination to rise as he has. #welcomeback #ClassAct #IPL2019," Moody, who also represented Australia, wrote on his Twitter handle.
Sunrisers Hyderabad face Mumbai Indians in a crucial clash at the Wankhede Stadium, in Mumbai, on May 2.
