Riding on David Warner’s stupendous knock, Delhi Capitals roared back into the form after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 21 runs. On Thursday evening, Delhi Capitals squared off against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a vital game for both sides. A loss here would push Delhi Capitals away from the playoffs spot, while Sunrisers Hyderabad were looking to avoid the third consecutive defeat.
Delhi Capitals got a chance to bat first as Kane Williamson invited Delhi Capitals to bat first after winning the coin flip. The Delhi-based franchise had the worst possible start after losing Mandeep Singh in the first over without opening the account.
Mitchell Marsh and Rishabh Pant tried to play the attacking cricket, but they failed to stick around for too long. However, the night belonged to the Aussie opener David Warner, a man on a mission against his former side.
The left-handed southpaw carried the bat and returned unbeaten after scoring 92 runs off 58 deliveries. He got massive support from the West Indian Rovman Powell as the duo added 122 runs off 11 overs to take Delhi Capitals to 207/3 in 20 overs.
David Warner has invented a new reverse shot
Warner played a ridiculously difficult reverse shot during his beautiful knock against the Orange Army to leave everyone shocked. Looking to finish with a flurry in the death, David Warner played an indescribable reverse shot off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Bhuvi came to bowl the 19th over of Delhi’s innings with Warner on strike. The Aussie opener was looking to play a switch hit, but the bowler saw him and bowled a yorker. Despite getting outfoxed, David Warner somehow managed to dig it for a four.
