IPL: Five Overseas Stars Loved by Their Home Crowd
Before the IPL, the support used to be one-way.
Gone are the days when only Indian IPL players were cheered and supported by the home crowd. The IPL has brought so much diversity that the foreign players are now equally admired and their number of fans have increased exponentially since then. The following list shows the top players to change the trend.
#5 David Warner (Hyderabad)
After being appointed as the captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015, Warner ended the season as the tournament's leading run scorer, rewarding him with the orange cap. In 2016, he led his team to its first championship, scoring 69 runs off 38 balls in the final against Royal Challengers Bangalore, and followed it with another orange cap to his name in 2017. This success and consistency gave him a special place in Hyderabad fans' hearts.
