A few days back, SRH removed Warner as their captain as the team positioned at the bottom of the points table and gave the captaincy to New Zealand’s Kane Williamson. But it came as a shock when the team management also excluded Warner from the playing XI. However, the decision wasn’t fruitful at all rather they again lost the match and it was by a huge margin of 55 runs.

After the match, Kartik was asked by an Australian sports journalist Mel McLaughlin about his opinion on Warner’s removal was captain.

“Mel. Firstly replacing him was downright shocking/absurd, but u know what was the icing on the cake” he doesn’t fit into the Team combination. Seriously, suddenly, wow ur best player, one of IPL’s best suddenly doesn’t fit into ur team after having played so many yrs & 2days ago,” Kartik said on Twitter.

“So basically saying that the ones watching are in kindergarten and we don’t understand. Seriously since when did Warner not fit into the team combo. Who is replacing him Sachin/Lara, Sir Garfield, Sir Viv #IPL2021,” added Kartik.
