Suspended Australian cricketer David Warner surprised Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fans when his name popped up in the comment section of their Instagram live.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was having an interaction with the fans before the tournament kicks-off and Warner wrote a hello for the pacer. "Hello Bhuvi," he wrote. SRH have appointed Bhuvneshwar as the vice-captain, while naming Kane Williamson as the captain in Warner's place for IPL 2018.
Warner and his Australian teammate Steve Smith are suspended from participating in the IPL 2018 after the ball-tampering scandal. They have been banned by Cricket Australia for one year each and IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla cleared that the duo can't play in the cash-rich league as well.
Fans were quite emotional seeing the comment of Warner. Here is how they reacted:
