#IPL2022, SRHvsDC: "One of the best innings," Captain Rishabh Pant praises David Warner

New Delhi: 

Delhi Capitals successfully defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 21 runs at the Brabourne Stadium on Thursday. After defeating SRH, Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant showered praise on David Warner and said it was one of the best innings he has seen in a while for Delhi.

Delhi Capitals opener David Warner scored an unbeaten 92 off 58 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 50th match of Indian Premier League 2022. Warner hit 12 fours and three sixes during his innings. 

Thanks to his innings, Delhi Capitals scored 207 runs for 3 wickets in 20 overs. Warner had an unbeaten century partnership of 122 runs with Rovman Powell (67 *). He also praised Rovman Powell who scored an unbeaten 67 off 35 balls.

After the match, while praising David Warner, captain Rishabh Pant said: “The way he paced his innings, it’s one of the best innings I’ve seen over a period of time for Delhi. I don’t mind having one or two conversations here or there. In the start, he was not getting runs but we backed him and now he’s coming out with flying colours.” 

Rishabh also talked about improvements in the team. He said, “There is always room for improvement, but it’s close to a perfect game for us as a batting unit. I was calm about myself. In high chases, the other team needs 10-12 runs per over, it’s difficult to hit till the 20th over. I was telling the bowlers to be calm. We are just taking one game at a time and trying to give our 100%. I got out to a full toss, that’s part and parcel of the game. Good and important win for us.” 

Coming to the match, chasing a huge target of 208 runs, SRH could score 186 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 8 wickets. For Delhi, Khaleel Ahmed took three wickets while Shardul Thakur took two wickets. This was Delhi’s fifth win in 10 matches. On the other hand, the SRH team has slipped to sixth place.

This was DC’s 5th win in IPL 2022 while SRH fell to their 5th loss of the season, both teams have played 10 games and now have 10 points each. Rishabh Pant-led team have now moved to 5th on the points table, as they have better NRR (Net Run Rate) in comparison to SRH.
