Warner, who is expected to feature for the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) as their opener, will be a key member of the team.
For the 2018 IPL season, he was retained and appointed captain by Sunrisers Hyderabad, but he stepped down as captain following the events of ball-tampering in South Africa. The BCCI later announced that Warner would not be allowed to play in the 2018 IPL season.
Being one of the most prolific run-getters in the history of IPL, he was the proud owner of the orange cap in 2015, 2017 and 2018 and also lifted the trophy in 2016 as skipper.
Meanwhile, IPL, which was supposed to begin from March 29 has been postponed till April 15 due to the COVI19 outbreak.
