IPL 2022 Mega Auction: David Warner bags the deal with Delhi Capitals at Rs. 6.25 crore

David Warner navigates to Delhi Capitals team after the franchise pitched an expensive bad for the left-arm Australian opening batsman.

David Warner, an explosive Australian batsman who has long enjoyed his romance with the IPL, had a very tough season in the second leg of IPL in UAE. He was sacked from the captaincy and also slid out of the team. The legendary batsman had to express support to his team Sunrisers Hyderabad through stands.

However, the left-arm opener had made it his mind to move out of Sunrisers Hyderabad and join a new franchise. The hopes have finally turned true when he has been picked up by Delhi Capitals franchise for 6.25 crore.

Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings also showed interest but Delhi Capital closed the deal.

Warner has scored 5, 499 runs in his overall career in IPL to date while scoring 4 centuries and 50 half-centuries running at an average of 41.59 and strike-rate of whopping 139.96.
