Nos. 4, 5, 6, and 7 managed 12, 0, 7 and 6 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and could not accelerate to death in their second match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). However, Warner clarified that the players are working on their skills in the net, but there has been a lack of execution on the field. SRH posted a video on social media in which Captain’s Corner was written, where Warner gave a glimpse of the team’s pre-match training session.
