new Delhi. Cricketers who arrived from England and Australia on September 16 in the opening matches of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) may be missing. But these cricketers have started preparing to leave their mark in further matches. These include the legendary Australian opener David Warner, who also has the burden of captaining Sunrisers Hyderabad on his shoulders. After reaching the UAE, Warner has started a tremendous exercise in the isolation period to keep pace with the hot and humid weather there.
Sunrisers posted a video of Warner’s physical work
Warner’s team Sunrisers Hyderabad has shared a video of Warner doing tremendous physical work in his hotel room. After reaching the UAE, Warner has to spend an isolation period of 6 days and during this time the biggest challenge for him is to maintain his fitness level at the IPL standard. For this, they are spending too much time in workouts.

There will be three tests before returning to the field
Warner will have to undergo a corona test three times in the UAE during the isolation period. The first test has been done at Dubai airport as soon as it reaches UAE. If they are found negative in all three Tests, then only they will get a chance to return to the field. On finding positive, their isolation period will be extended further.
IPL’s most successful batsman for many seasons
David Warner has proved to be the most successful batsman of all IPL teams during the last several seasons. He achieved the Purple Cap by scoring 692 runs in IPL-2019, so in 2018 he could not play due to the ban. But in IPL-2017 too, he achieved the Purple Cap by scoring 641 runs. In IPL-2016 too, he had scored 848 runs to win the title to his team and was second after Virat Kohli, who scored 973 runs.
Earlier in the IPL-2015 too, Purple Cap Warner got the highest score for scoring the most runs. He scored 562 runs. In IPL-2014, Warner was at number four after scoring 528 runs. Due to this consistently good performance, Warner can be considered important for Sunrisers.
