Warner endured a disappointing 2021 with Sunrisers Hyderabad, scoring 195 runs in eight innings at an average of 24.37 and a strike rate of 107.73. He was sacked as captain and eventually dropped by Sunrisers. Warner had captained Sunrisers to the 2016 title.
But after a disappointing IPL, Warner was the second-highest scorer in the T20 World Cup with a tally of 289 runs, an average of over 48, and a strike rate of 146.70. He was instrumental in Australia winning its maiden T20 world title.
