Warner had previously led SunRisers Hyderabad to IPL triumph in 2016 and he was the second-highest scorer in that edition, only behind then Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli.
However, midway during the 2021 season, Warner was removed as SRH captain and then he warmed the benches in the last few matches. The franchise did not retain the left-handed batter before the 2022 edition.
Delhi Capitals batted first against SRH and posted 207/3 in 20 overs owing to knocks of 92 and 67 from Warner and Rovman Powell.
Khaleel Ahmed then returned with three wickets as Delhi Capitals went on to win the contest by 21 runs.
