David Warner was released by SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) after a disappointing IPL 2021 season

Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer used Sarojini Nagar market reference after Delhi-based Indian Premier League franchise bought Australian batter, David Warner, during the IPL 2022 mega auction on Saturday (February 12). Sarojini Nagar market is a very popular market in India's capital, known for cheap products. 

Delhi Capitals roped in Warner for Rs 6.25 crore  - a price tag that is like a bargain price as said by Jaffer, who is known for his humorous posts on social media. 

On his official Twitter handle, Jaffer wrote: "Delhi people are known to strike a bargain, but getting David Warner for just 6.25cr is a Sarojini Nagar market level bargain  #IPLAuction2022 #IPL2022" 

Here's is his viral post:

Here's Warner message: 

Warner was released by SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) after a disappointing IPL 2021 season which also saw him stripped of the team's captaincy. But the opener bounced back brilliantly and played a crucial role in Australia's T20 World Cup glory last year.

The 35-year-old had a base price of Rs 2 crore. Warner also started his IPL career with Delhi Daredevils, who changed their name to Delhi Capitals in December 2018.
