Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner is one of the most destructive batsmen in the shortest format of the game with a great performance over the years in the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, Warner has so far struggled for his franchise in the IPL 2020, failing to score a half-century in the four matches played by the team. The slimy 33-year-old has come forward in the fortunes of SRH who have struggled to win after a slow start for their captain. However, Warner is able to wreak havoc on his day with a good knock able to speed up the cricketer’s gameplay. Mumbai Indians (MI) strike bowler Jasprit Bumrah would like to ensure another low score for the opener after two players went face to face in the 17th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
David Warner has scored 115 runs in four matches for SRH at an average of 28.75 and a strike rate of 117.35. Warner has accumulated scores of 6, 36, 45 and 28 so far in the ongoing edition of the tournament, which certainly seems low considering the batsman’s abilities.
Bumrah has taken five wickets in four matches at an average of 27. Indian fast bowlers will try to take more wickets, as the Purple Cap race is steadily getting faster.
Warner will be itching to suffer on Sunday due to his poor run in the headlines. Bumrah will be eager to thwart the Australian and dismiss him early. Fans can certainly expect a cracker.
