Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner has been a proactive cricketer and has again has led the side from the front when his side needed the most. After a powering knock with the bat, Warner incited a run out to put Hyderabad on top against Kings XI Punjab.
Chasing a massive total of 202 runs, Punjab would have a wanted a good start from their in-form players – KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. After a good start scoring nine runs in the first over, an unfortunate error of judgement cost Punjab their first wicket.
David Warner produces a brilliant run out
A mix-up between the openers – KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal and the latter had to depart. Brilliant stop by skipper David Warner at extra cover though. He sprinted across and stopped the drive with a dive. Mayank was committed for the second, but Rahul sent him back.
And by the time he can react, Warner’s throw is already at the bowler’s end. Bowler Khaleel Ahmed whipped off the bails leaving Mayank Agarwal stranded well outside the crease.

Earlier in the day, Kings XI Punjab pulled things back in the last five overs after David Warner and Jonny Bairstow gave a prolific start. Both set off aggressively but Warner took a step back when Bairstow started to find the boundaries after the powerplay.
They reached their respective landmarks and only when Bairstow was nearing his hundred did he slow down, that caused all the mayhem. Bairstow fell three short of his century while Warner chipped in with 52 before Punjab pulled things back. They managed only 41 runs in the last five overs losing six wickets to manage to post 201 runs.
