SunRisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner praised the team’s death bowling and said that they have artillery in their armoury after a massive 69-run win over Kings XI Punjab on Thursday.
Warner and Jonny Bairstow stitched a 160-run stand for the first wicket, helping their side post a huge total of 201 runs on the board. While defending the total, Rashid Khan took three wickets while Thangarasu Natarajan and Khaleel Ahmed picked two wickets each in the match to take SRH over the line.
We have got a very good death bowling. Bhuvi is not here but guys like Natarajan has been bowling exceptional. Having Rashid Khan in the team and obviously two other blokes early on with the swing bowling. We have got that artillery in our armoury now up my sleeve and putting 200 runs helps,” Warner told Jonny Bairstow in a video posted on iplt20.com.
“For myself, it is applying pressure to the batsman and once you are in you try to bat as many overs as possible. I think we complement each other very well. Having you (Bairstow) there makes it a lot easier for me. I can rotate the strike and you can hit Maxi out of the park. We are always talked about constantly running twos so that is one thing that we pride ourselves on especially when I can’t hit them over stands like this boy,” he added.
