David Warner Joins Rohit Sharma In An Exclusive Club Of Players
Warner joins Rohit Sharma in an exclusive club of players. The Mumbai Indians skipper is the only other player in the IPL with more than 1000 runs against one franchise. Sharma has scored 1018 runs in 30 games against KKR, whereas Warner has scored 1005 in 22 innings against Punjab.
Warner averages more than 50 against Punjab Kings and strikes them at 142.35. On Wednesday, the Australia opener scored his twelfth fifty against PBKS as Delhi Capitals took care of a 116-run target to enlist their third victory of the IPL 2022 season.
Delhi Capitals Crush Punjab Kings
Delhi Capitals on Wednesday set records as they pounded Punjab Kings by 9 wickets in a vivacious show after a Covid-19 emergency in their camp. Skipper Rishabh Pant said that apprehension and disarray were leading the pack up to Wednesday’s match against PBKS after two of their players – – Mitchell Marsh and Tim Seifert – tested Covid positive.
Notwithstanding, DC came out all weapons blasting, bowling out PBKS for a pitiful 115. In reply, Warner and Prithvi Shaw punished Punjab with a rankling opening partnership of 83 runs in only 39 balls.
Warner crushed 10 fours and a six and stayed unbeaten on 60 from only 30 balls as DC pursued the objective in 10.3 overs. It was Warner’s third fifty on the trot in IPL 2022 as the hard-hitting Australian opener has slid into his new franchise after having had a horror run at SunRisers Hyderabad in 2021.
