David Warner on Wednesday became the fourth player, after Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, and Shoaib Malik to 10,000 runs in T20 cricket. He reached the landmark with a brace off Lungi Ngidi in the 15th over.
Next over, he brought up his slowest T20 fifty – his 50th fifty in IPL – with a six over midwicket. He was eventually dismissed for 57 off 55. His 106-run partnership with Manish Pandey formed the cornerstone of SRH’s batting against the Chennai Super Kings.
Warner, who has been with SRH since 2014, had an injury-disrupted Australia season in the lead up to this IPL.
