  • Kane Williamson IPL 2019

David Warner was a bundle of nerves upon his Indian Premier League return but it didn't show in Kolkata, where the suspended superstar blasted 85 to make an emphatic World Cup statement.

Sunrisers Hyderabad beat the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous encounter in the second qualifier of the 11th edition, progressing into the finals.

Russell (4x4, 4x6) came in to bat in the 16th over with KKR needing 68 off 27 balls chasing 182 for victory just after a well-settled Nitish Rana (68; 47b 8x4 3x6) was removed by Rashid Khan.

Though still serving his ban from global cricket, Warner has been piling on the runs in the T20 format. Opening the innings alongside IPL debutant Jonny Bairstow, Warner looked in his elements right from the time Knight Riders skipper asked the visitors to bat first.

As Australia started their second ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah, Warner gave a timely reminder of his ability to dismantle an attack while powering Hyderabad to a total of 3-181. Such was the Warner assault that four of the regular KKR bowlers including the frontline spin duo of Sunil Narine (0/29 in three overs) and Kuldeep (0/18 in 2 overs) did not even bowl their full quota of four overs. He was banned for a year from all the global games due to the ball-tampering scandal in Australia's away test against South Africa. The suspension did not include club games but IPL's governing council decided not to allow the disgraced duo in the 11th edition of the T20 league past year in a bid to avoid controversy. With the firepower of Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn and Andre Russell, we're in for a highly competitive game.

Russell scored an unbeaten 49 runs off 19 balls, including 4 fours and 4 sixes and became the game changer for his side.

Warner also broke Gautam Gambhir's record of most fifties in IPL. The match seemed to be slipping off KKR's grip but Rana kept KKR in the hunt with his defiant fifty.

"We have got quite a few days before our next home game".

SRH were dealt with a major blow after Kane Williamson, who was the last season's top run scorer, was ruled out for the initial part of the tournament owing to injury.

"We are definitely better balanced than we were previous year with much better fast bowling options and more quality depth in all departments".
