SRH ride on David Warner’s 93*, reach IPL 2016 final

prv_f3ccd_1461250933Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner was not a happy man during his team’s second strategic time-out. SRH needed 46 off 25 balls with four wickets in hand after Naman Ojha was caught in the deep for 10. Warner, batting on 74 off 48 at that point, had all the reason to be annoyed as in chase of 163 his batsmen had let him down – not for the first time in the tournament. In SRH’s nine victories before this game, Warner had been the only batsman to make a telling impact with five fifties and a score of 48.

On Friday against Gujarat Lions in Qualifier two, the Australian was SRH’s ‘Man Friday’ waging a lone battle against an inspired Gujarat bowling attack. Much similar to the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s predicament against Gujarat in Qualifier 1, Warner needed an Iqbal Abdulla at the other end to see his team home, and Bipul Sharma proved to be SRH’s Abdulla scoring a crucial cameo off 27 off 11 balls and Warner, most fittingly, hit the winning runs to remain unbeaten on 93 off 58 balls and take his team to their maiden final.
