New Delhi: 

David Warner became only the second batter after Rohit Sharma recorded more than 1000 runs against one particular franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday.

With the knock, Warner went on to record his third consecutive half-century and his 53rd in the tournament. He hit 10 fours and one six in his 30-ball knock.

“I think the bowlers did a fantastic job and made it easier for us. We had to go hard in the powerplay during the chase. It was a different surface compared to the last night, but credit to our bowlers. Was grateful that we were able to get out of our rooms and play tonight,” said David Warner in a post-match presentation.

He added, “I was just trying to be positive and am happy to have played with Shaw… For me, it’s about sticking to the basics and I tried to put my best footwork forward, hopefully, I’ll be able to do going forward. My kids just want to know why I cannot get a hundred like Jos (Buttler) does. It’s great that the little ones around the world keep watching this game.”

In the match against, bowlers played a key role for Delhi Capitals as they bundled out Punjab Kings for 115 and their batters too pitched in strongly, chasing the target inside 11 overs in the IPL match at Brabourne Stadium here on Wednesday.

Punjab King’s 115 is the lowest total by any team so far in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022.

The total was chased by DC with 57 balls to spare as the team boosted their NRR (Net Run Rate). Capitals never looked in trouble throughout the match as they inflicted a heavy nine-wicket defeat on Punjab Kings.
