Hyderabad: Delhi Capitals skipper David Warner credited his spinners Akshar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav for registering a thrilling seven-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Monday. Batting first, Delhi restricted Sunrisers to 137 for six after scoring 144 for nine. For Delhi, Akshar took two wickets for 21 runs in four overs and Kuldeep took one wicket for 22 runs in the same over, increasing the difficulties of Hyderabad. But before the match, a different form of him was seen, which onlookers were stunned.
Actually, David Warner’s attachment to India is not hidden from anyone. He is very fond of Indian films, food. Often used to make Tiktok videos on South Indian songs. In such a situation, before the match against his old team Sunrisers Hyderabad, he took blessings by touching the feet of his mentor Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Before the match, David Warner approached Bhuvneshnar Kumar, three years his junior, and fell at his feet, after which Bhuvi immediately hugged Warner. Ishant Sharma, standing next to him, burst into laughter. The video of the incident is viral on social media. (ipl news 2023)
Apart from the spinners, Warner also praised fast bowler Mukesh Kumar and veteran Ishant Sharma for defending 13 runs in the last over. At the post-match award ceremony, Warner said, ‘Mukesh was absolutely amazing there under pressure and our two left-arm spinners were brilliant. You would not want the batsman to get used to the bowlers, so I was not using both together and it worked.
When asked about Ishant, who bowled brilliantly in the last two matches, he said, ‘He should get credit. He has worked very hard to come back to IPL and what he did was extraordinary. He was telling me from the very first match that I am ready to play. We have lost five matches in a row so today’s win is great. Hopefully we will win the next three matches, then think about it. Our next match is also from Hyderabad. (live ipl news 2023)
