In a surprising turn of events at the IPL 2024 Auction, Australian cricketer David Warner, currently with the Delhi Capitals (DC), found himself blocked by his former team, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), on both X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram.

The drama unfolded as SRH engaged in a high-stakes bidding war during the auction to acquire the services of Travis Head. The Cricket World Cup 2023 hero fetched an impressive Rs 6.8 crore, making him one of the notable buys of the day. The auction room witnessed intense competition, especially from Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who vigorously pursued the Australian opener.

Kaviya Maran, the determined owner of SRH, played a pivotal role in ensuring the successful acquisition of Travis Head. Despite CSK’s formidable challenge and last-minute bidding, Maran displayed strategic prowess by promptly responding to each bid, leaving no room for hesitation at the SRH table. The atmosphere in the auction room was charged with excitement as Maran’s decisive moves showcased the team’s unwavering commitment to securing Head for the upcoming season.
