Sunrisers Hyderabad marquee players David Warner and Jonny Bairstow to leave the Indian Premier League early due to their international commitments. Sunrisers Hyderabad will definitely feel a huge loss after Warner and Bairstow leave.

Both Warner and Bairstow are currently sitting at number one and two respectively on the list of leading run-scorers in the IPL. SRH skipper Kane Walliamson expressed his feelings while speaking in a post-match presentation after a match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Wlliamson said, “We kept them down to a low total. It was a complete performance. It is a tough tournament. You need to adapt. Let’s hope they continue. Everyone is trying to play their roles. To take nothing away from the first half, the bowlers did really well. It has been a pleasure to watch them bat. We know that we would come in as a middle order when needed. They (Bairstow and Warner) are gonna be big losses. They are world class players and they will be missed at the back end.”

Warner and Bairstow notched up their fourth 100 run partnership stand in the match. Both of them recently registered the highest first wicket partnership of 185 runs in IPL in a match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are sitting at number four on the points table as they have 10 points to their name. Sunrisers will play against Chennai Super Kings today in MA Chidambaram Stadium. Chennai is currently sitting at number two on the points table.
