VIDEO: David Warner bowls his first-ever IPL over against DC
The skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad, David Warner has bowled in the match against Delhi Capitals. Vijay Shankar, who was bowling his 2nd over, injured his hamstring when he bowled the fifth ball of the over.
With one ball remaining to complete the over, someone has to bowl as the all-rounder left the field. David Warner has taken the responsibility to complete the over.
The first ball of David Warner has gone for a wide and he had to roll his arms one more time to complete the over. Pant played the next delivery towards the long-off to take a single on the last ball of the over.

Delhi registers another loss as Hyderabad keep playoff hopes alive:
Hyderabad batted first at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium after losing the toss. They managed a big total of 219 runs with the loss of just 2 wickets. Two openers David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha made a devastating fifty. In reply, Delhi were all out for only 131 runs.
Chasing a target of 220, Delhi were never in a position that they could win the match. Hyderabad had been putting pressure on them from the beginning. All the batsmen failed miserably. Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan registered this year’s best bowling figure in 4-0-7-3. Rishabh Pant was the highest run-scored for Delhi with 36 runs.
Earlier, Hyderabad openers Warner and Saha both picked-up fifties. Warner scored 66 runs off just 34 balls and Saha scored 87 runs off just 45 balls. Later, Manish Pandey’s unbeaten 44 off 31 balls gave Hyderabad the huge total of 219 runs.
This is Hyderabad’s second-highest run win in the Indian Premier League (IPL). As a result, they still have a chance to play in the top four. Now they have 10 points in 12 matches. Hyderabad will go to the playoffs if they win next two matches and complete some equations.
