Why is David Warner not playing today’s IPL?
Capitals, whose 24-member squad comprised of seven overseas players, have been severely affected by overseas players yet to report their respective teams.
Much like a large number of Australian players, batter David Warner and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will also be missing the first few matches. Despite being rested from Australia’s white-ball squads for the tour of Pakistan, Warner, and Marsh will be allowed to take part in IPL 2022 only after April 5.
