Australia’s opening batsman David Warner is busy captaining the IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The skipper has 284 runs to his name in eight games but he has been far from his very best. He has played at an average of 35.50 and his strike-rate, which is currently at 121.88, isn’t on the higher side either. Though Warner has a couple of half-centuries, he would be hoping to return back to his aggressive form for SRH’s successful run in the T20 extravaganza.
Despite the heated environment and the tense competition of making it to the playoffs, Warner doesn’t forget to enjoy his game and provides enough entertainment to the audience and his fellow cricketers. The opening batsman on Saturday posted one of his embarrassing videos on his official Instagram handle.
The clip features him and Jonny Bairstow with a match presenter. While talking with the presenter, Warner farted and he makes it a point to record it in the mic. Sharing the video, Warner wrote, “Caption this!! So embarrassing…oops”
SRH campaign in IPL 2020
The 2016 Champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are precariously placed in the middle of the points table. The team, captained by David Warner, have won only three out of their first eight games and need a string of wins to climb the latter. The Orange Army had a disappointing start to their campaign in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League as they lost their first two consecutive fixtures against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 10 runs and 7 sixes wickets respectively.
However, the team bounced back stronger as it defeated the Delhi Capitals (DC) by 15 runs before registering a clinical victory over three-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 7 runs. Following this SRH lost to defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) by 34 runs and clinched the game against wooden-spooners Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by a massive 69 runs.
The Orange Army should be a tad low on confidence, especially after losing their last two games against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The Sunrisers are next scheduled to lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Sunday, October 18 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
