Twitter Reactions: David Warner runs riot in Hyderabad against RCB to notch up his 4th IPL ton

If Bairstow was smacking the ball cleanly, Warner ran 50 runs by placing the ball perfectly throughout the innings.

The season opener of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was definitely a huge anti-climax. Since then, the scores of over 180 are being scored easily and the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have just crossed the limit with their exceptional batting. If it was Jonny Bairstow to start off for them, his opening partner David Warner ran riot to bat through the innings in the game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

The pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium has surprised so many by dishing out the flattest of tracks this year. Both the matches at the venue have been high-scoring so far and the ongoing second match has been the best. The SRH have posted a mammoth total of 231 runs after they were put in to bat first by Virat Kohli.

The assault never stopped which began in the first over of Moeen Ali. The duo of Bairstow and Warner literally went after everything against the poor bowlers of the opposition. The latter played second fiddle when his partner was going berserk at the other hand. When you second fiddle, Warner’s strike-rate was still over 150 throughout the innings. It’s just that Bairstow was in a different mood on the day as he easily outscored the Australian.

After Bairstow, Warner takes over

While it was about clean hitting from Jonny Bairstow, David Warner put up an exhibition of some swift running when he was not able to hit the boundaries. The duo hardly played any dot ball during their opening stand of 184 runs which has shattered records. With all respect to Bairstow, Warner literally stole the show in the last five overs. He just stepped on the gas like anything timing everything right from the outset.

May it be the shots down the ground, reverse sweeps, switch hits or manoeuvring the ball for a couple, David Warner did everything. Deservedly, he also raced past the 100-run mark and there came the trademark celebration. The famous jump with helmet in one hand and the wounded Tiger roared ferociously. Warner is really making up for the runs he missed over the last 12 months and he is no stopping this season it seems.

Coming back to the match, the former SRH skipper remained unbeaten on 100 off just 55 balls with five fours and as many sixes which proves that the Australian ran 50 % of runs on the way to one of his best IPL hundreds.
