David Warner will be the cynosure of all eyes on his return for Hyderabad when they open their Indian T20 League campaign against two-time champions Kolkata at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.

Under Warner, Hyderabad won their maiden title in 2016 and in 2017, the Australian southpaw was the leading run-getter for his team. After missing last year s edition due to the suspension for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, Warner will be keen to make a strong statement and prove his credentials which may also make his case stronger for a spot in Australia s ICC World Cup 2019 team.
