It was after his tweet when people over social media trolled the Pakistani batsman for his mistake. The cricketer soon realised his mistake, deleted his tweet and posted a new one but the damage had already been done by then.

Earlier on Sunday night, SRH held their nerve in a last-over thriller to edge RCB by 8 runs for their maiden IPL crown. SRH scored 208/7 and kept RCB to 200/7 in the final.

Cricket world showered praise over David Warner for his achievement.
