“I didn’t need any more motivation,” David Warner said of facing SunRisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2022.

David Warner guided the SunRisers Hyderabad to their first IPL title in 2016, but the franchise fired him without explanation. Warner was stripped of his captaincy and subsequently dropped from the team before the franchise decided not to keep him, resulting in Warner’s return to the auction pool. On Thursday, the Australian avenged his unceremonious departure from the squad by flaying them across Mumbai to help his new team Delhi Capitals win by 21 runs in an IPL 2022 match.

Warner hit an unbeaten 92 off 58 balls to lead his side to a match-winning 207 for three in 20 overs.

Following Delhi’s victory and Warner’s match-winning innings, DC assistant coach Shane Watson spoke with Warner about playing his former squad.

“I’m going to start with SunRisers Hyderabad’s former captain. I’ve got a little heat in my belly for tonight’s game “In response to Warner, Watson stated.

“Yeah, see, I didn’t need any extra motivation,” Warner remarked, instantly bringing a smile to Watson’s face.

The captain Rishabh Pant’s dismissal of Shreyas Gopal, in which he plundered the spinner for 23 runs in an over, was the turning point in the DC innings, according to Warner.

“After losing the toss, our task was to come out and attempt to get a good start in the powerplay. We constantly joke about how if one guy gets 80 points and the other gets 40, one of them will most likely win the game. It was amazing to be up there with Rovi tonight (Rovman Powell). I believe the way Rishi (Rishabh Pant) came out and dismissed Shreyas Gopal was the turning point in the innings for us “said the Australian, who is left-handed.

Warner received excellent help from Rovman Powell, who hammered 67 off 35 balls for Delhi.

“I was a touch off at the start of the competition. I simply maintain believing in the work I’ve done over the last few years. It’s just a matter of trusting myself and the process. The most recent games. It’s helpful to have the support of the coaching staff and the captain “added the Caribbean superstar.

In reply, SRH managed only 186 for eight in their 20 overs, with Nicholas Pooran (62 off 34) leading the way. Delhi Capitals’ Khaleel Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers, taking three for 30 in four overs.
