“I’ll leave that to Jos,” Warner stated after missing a century against SRH.

Warner struck 92* from 58 deliveries but fell short of his ton due to a lack of strike in the last few overs.

In match 50 of the present Indian Premier League (IPL) season, David Warner made it obvious that he didn’t need any extra motivation to perform against his former team Sunrisers Hyderabad. Everyone could observe how SRH removed him from leadership and afterwards from the playing XI in the IPL 2021. However, against his previous squad, the left-hander smashed an undefeated 92 off 58 deliveries.

He had a chance to score a well-deserved century, but he was unable to do so due to a lack of strike in the final two overs of the innings. He also told his partner Rovman Powell to focus on hitting big shots rather than worrying about reaching the three-figure mark. When asked about his lack of a century after the game, Warner joked that he had given the task to Jos Buttler, who has been racking up runs and tons at will while playing for Rajasthan Royals this season.

In the meantime, Warner believes that his daughters will be pleased that he has scored runs. They were questioning him because he wasn’t hammering tons as Buttler had been doing this season. “Hopefully they (his children) are still sleeping, but I believe they are content.” But I didn’t even get a hundred! That’s right, Jeebiess! In the post-match presentation ceremony, Warner said, “I’ll leave that (the hundreds) to Jos.”

"I'll leave that to Jos," Warner stated after missing a century against SRH.

You have to try new shots, adds Warner.

David Warner played strokes at will against the opposition bowlers during his innings. He also took on his former teammate Bhuvneshwar Kumar playing a switch-hit leaving everyone in awe. Talking of the shot, the southpaw stated that as a batter one has to play innovative shots in T20 cricket and also revealed that he bats right-handed in the nets while facing the spinners.

“I was expecting Bhuvi to deliver a yorker, but it was broader.” I saw Jos play one lately while trying to turn, so I practiced in the nets. In the nets, I occasionally bat right-handed against spinners. You must attempt these shots. “I planned to reverse it, but when it got bowled there, I simply tried to back-cut it and it fell off,” he explained.
