David Warner is unarguably one of the greatest batters in the history of the Indian T20 league. When it comes to the cash-rich league, he has built a legacy for himself. Besides, he has won the Orange Cap thrice.

While he made it a habit of scoring runs for fun during his time at Hyderabad, he now represents the Delhi-based franchise. It is to be noted that the Aussie opener started his Indian T20 league career in Delhi itself. He made his debut for them in 2009. Former Delhi player Virender Sehwag has gone on to make some shocking revelations about Warner and his time in Delhi.

The legendary opener recently spoke about how Warner had fought with a few players from the team and thus, was sent home. Sehwag also said that the Australian partied more than practicing or playing matches. While speaking on Cricbuzz, he also revealed that he had vented out his frustration on a few players, and Warner was one of them.

“I too have vented out my frustrations on a couple of players and David Warner was one of them. Because when he had joined newly, he partied more than believing in practice or playing matches. In the first year, he had a fight with a few players so we sent him back for the last two matches,” said Virender Sehwag.

Besides, Warner has had his fair share of controversies, and had grabbed the limelight for his misbehaviour on numerous occasions. In the meanwhile, Sehwag also told that he decided to teach the 35-year-old a lesson, and wanted to show him that there are a lot of other players who can win games for the team as well. He even mentioned that Delhi won the game despite keeping Warner out.

“Sometimes it happens that you keep someone out to teach them a lesson. He was new so it was important to show him that you alone are not important for the team, others are too. There are other players who can play and win the match for the team too. And that’s what happened. We kept him out of the team and won as well,” he added.
