IPL 2022: Our bowlers made the job easier, says Delhi’s David Warner after nine-wicket win over Punjab | Cricket News



MUMBAI: After registering their third win in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season on Wednesday, Delhi Capitals‘ (DC) David Warner said that the bowlers made life easier for the batters after bowling Punjab Kings (PBKS) out for 115.
Warner smashed an unbeaten 60 to lead the Covid-affected Delhi Capitals to a thumping nine-wicket victory over PBKS here at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
This was Warner’s third successive half-century and his 53rd in the tournament. He hit 10 fours and one six in his 30-ball knock. The left-handed batter also went past 1,000 runs against Punjab Kings and is only the second player in IPL history to do so against a single team.

Warner said that he was grateful to be able to get out of their hotel rooms and play the match.
“I think the bowlers did a fantastic job and made it easier for us…It was a different surface compared to the last night, but credit to our bowlers. Was grateful that we were able to get out of our rooms and play tonight,” said David Warner in a post-match presentation.
Warner was in an 83-run opening stand in just 6.3 overs with the opener Prithvi Shaw. After another spectacular performance with the bat, the opener said his daughters wonder why he cannot get hundreds like Jos Buttler who is the Orange Cap holder this season and has already smashed two centuries for his team Rajasthan Royals.

“I was just trying to be positive and am happy to have played with Shaw.. For me it’s about sticking to the basics and I tried to put my best footwork forward. Hopefully, I will be able to do (the same) going forward. My kids just want to know why I cannot get a hundred like Jos (Buttler) does. It’s great that the little ones around the world keep watching this game,” he added.
Punjab King’s 115 is the lowest total by any team so far in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022. The total was chased down by DC with 57 balls to spare, as the team boosted its net run-rate.
