There has been talk of Sunrisers Hyderabad sacking David Warner from the captaincy for a few days now. Not only this, Warner was also dismissed from the team’s playing eleven against Rajasthan Royals. Due to these incidents there was much controversy on this subject. Most senior cricketers thought it was a foolish decision to remove Warner from the captaincy. Now, Graeme Swann spoke about the issue and said that the reason for Warner’s comment on the boycott of Manish Pandey is that the Australian was removed from the captaincy. David Warner suspended the touching picture of his daughter Ivy on social media after IPL 2021.
Manish Pandey was dropped from the team after struggling to score runs against Punjab Kings and Delhi Capital. Warner called the decision harsh. “It was a harsh call in my opinion. But at the end of the day, it is the decision of the selectors,” Warner said during the post-match conference. Now, Graeme Swann feels Warner paid the price for his comment on Manish Pandey. He said that nobody is happy to give a statement like Warner.
“Nobody is happy about it, and sad to get rid of him as captain and remove him from the team. It seems like more punishment to me than anything,” Swan said Star sports. For now, we all know that IPL 2021 has been postponed indefinitely during an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in bio-bubbles.
