The 9th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Mumbai Indians (MI) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) started with a twist. SRH captain David Warner made as many as four changes- Virat Singh, Abhishek Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Khaleel Ahmed came in place of Wriddhiman Saha, Jason Holder, Shahbaz Nadeem and T Natarajan.

While the changes were a bit surprising to many, some of them were angry with David Warner as he failed to mention the names during the toss. He said: “We would’ve batted first for sure. All four wickets look exactly the same here. We know what we are gonna do here. We have been in this position before, we have made four changes. Can’t remember the names, gotta look at the team-sheet.”

After Warner failed to name the changes, fans lashed out at him and team management.

Here are some of the reactions:
