Last year’s Indian T20 League runners-up Sunrisers Hyderabad have been boosted this season by the return of David Warner, who is back after serving out his one-year suspension received in the aftermath of the ball-tampering scandal.

And Sandeep Sharma, the fast bowler who joined Hyderabad from Punjab ahead of the 2018 season, believes that Warner’s comeback will be vital to the franchise’s success this season.

“When he returned this year, it never looked like he was apart from the team, [so] his return will make a huge difference to Hyderabad’s chances,” he told CricketCountry in a chat. (READDavid Warner reveals he was nervous on IPL return)
