Australian batsman David Warner has wished the Hyderabad team ahead of the first Qualifier of Indian Premier League 2018 which is against Chennai.
In the previous seasons, David Warner has played the skipper's role of Hyderabad but due to his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, he was subsequently banned from the IPL by the BCCI.
Even though he is not the part of Hyderabad team still, he has always given his support throughout the season.
Just before the first Qualifier, Warner has tweeted, "Good luck to @SunRisers tonight, keep playing well gentlemen. Been simply outstanding and being well lead by The great man himself Kane."
In the absence of David Warner, Kane Williamson is leading the squad and has proved his calibre and leadership skills.

Warner was replaced by an explosive opener Alex Hales of England.
