David Warner and Jonny Bairstow put up a show at Rajiv Gandhi international stadium in Hyderabad against Royal Challengers Banglore. This is the first time in the history of IPL that single pair had put up a three consecutive 100+ opening partnership. SRH at the end of 20 overs scored 231/2.
Bairstow and Warner put up 185 for the first wicket taking the game away from RCB. Kohli and co. will have to put up an exceptional show on the flat pitch if they want to achieve the target.
Warner is back with SRH after serving his ban. He returned with a bang. David Warner already has two half-centuries in his bag and is the orange cap holder in the tournament.
Meanwhile, Twitter was all busy to praise the SRH centurion.

That is a very special innings from Warner. It’s 42° in Hyderabad right now. He’s batted for the entire 20 overs. His dot ball percentage of 13% is the second lowest ever in an IPL hundred & his 13 twos are the second most ever in any IPL innings. #IPL #SRHvRCB

Aaron Finch: “It will be ‘bloody hard’ to fit Steve Smith and David Warner into Australia’s World Cup squad.”
David Warner: Hold my Beer.

It looks like RCB have been batted out by this game and only a miracle could bring them back. Such powerful and clean hitting from both Warner and Bairstow. What surprised me the most the amount of doubles these 2 men ran in that weather. Amazing stuff#SRHvsRCB #IPL2019
