The 92 unbeaten David Warner against the Hyderabad Sunrisers in the IPL match on Thursday was one of the best innings Rishabh Pant witnessed from the outside, the Delhi Capitals captain said himself. Warner’s great 58 -ball effort helped Delhi beat SRH by 21 runs. “The way he hit, the way he did the rhythm of the scene, it was one of the best scenes I have ever seen (at the Delhi camp),” Pant said at a post -match presentation.
He also praised Rovman Powell who made 67 unbeaten out of 35 balls.
“We know what he (Powell) can give us, we support him and he’s performing brilliantly now. We only take one game at a time and try to give 100%. A good win is important for us.” Playing against his former franchisee, Warner said he doesn’t need extra motivation.
“It was a very good goal, I had some success here. I knew if I played my shot, it would come out.
“Challenging here in Mumbai with the humidity and I cooked there towards the back, I’m getting older. Having Rovman on the end there is amazing. I don’t need extra motivation, we’ve seen what happened before, it’s great to win , “said the Australian.
SRH suffered its third consecutive defeat.
“You know for us it’s just back to the drawing board. Great beats from David Warner and then by Powell. Great learning opportunities for everyone. Umran has been a great discovery,” said captain Kane Williamson.
“You learn from the best when you’re up against them. Things can change quickly if we sort it all out. They have rhythm beats in the middle sequence. Both of them (Pooran and Markam) have been great.
“Just try to play a role for the team. Stay patient. Every team is strong. Try to contribute to the team’s goals.”
