David Warner’s journey in IPL 2020 has started on a disappointing note as the Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper was run-out in the most unfortunate of manners. He had scored six off six balls before being run-out at the non-striker’s end in the second over of the ongoing game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
This was David Warner’s first game as SRH captain since he was re-appointed. The game started on a good note for him as he won the toss and invited RCB to bat first. In reply, RCB scored 163 for 5 in the allotted 20 overs with debutant Devdutt Padikkal and veteran AB de Villiers scoring fifties.
Padikkal and Aaron Finch gave RCB a solid start by adding 90 runs in 11 overs before departing in quick succession. Captain Virat Kohli did not last long either as RCB found themselves in trouble. However, de Villiers held firm from one end and slammed 51 off just 30 deliveries to ensure RCB end up with a challenging total. For SRH, T Natarajan, Vijay Shankar and Abhishek Sharma picked one wicket apiece.

David Warner’s run-out:
In reply, SRH made a quick start as Jonny Bairstow and David Warner collected 18 runs from the first nine balls before the latter was run-out. Umesh Yadav, bowling the second over, pitched one up that was hit straight by Bairstow. But before the ball could go past Yadav, he managed to make a contact with it.
The deflected ball went on to hit the stumps and David Warner had no option but to walk away as he was standing outside the crease.
Here is a clip of the run-out:
