The 28th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) locking horns against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Entering the game, Sunrisers Hyderabad were in a panic mode as they made many key changes to their squad, the main being the change in the leadership.
The highlight of the entire match was David Warner sitting outside as he was replaced by Kane Williamson as the captain and after being sacked, the Australian batsman didn’t find a place in the playing XI too. Though Warner was made to sit on the bench, he tried his best to support the team in whatever way he can.
The opening batsman perfectly essayed his role of the 12th man as throughout the game, he was seen carrying drinks for the players. Warner also gave him valuable inputs to the players and the new captain Williamson during the break. Meanwhile, a video featuring the Australian star has gone viral on social media.
In the short clip, the batter can be seen having fun while sitting in the dug-out. In the viral clip, Warner was having a race with his SRH teammates for drinks as the two indulged in a funny and fake fight.

SRH loses to RR by 55 runs
The massive setup changes by SRH didn’t reap good results as they registered an embarrassing loss against Rajasthan Royals by 55 runs. The game commenced with Hyderbad winning the toss and electing to field first. However, it was a bad day at the office for the Men in Orange as they looked sloppy on the field and failed to complete the catches to dismiss the opposition batters.
Batting first, the Royals managed to put up a massive target of 220 runs on the scoreboard as Jos Buttler smashed a stunning 124 runs in just 64 balls. He was aptly supported by Sanju Samson who added 48 runs to the scoreboard. Chasing 221, no SRH batter took the responsibility of scoring runs for the side as they lost their wickets cheaply. In 20 overs, SRH could score only 165 runs and they lost the game by 55 runs.
