Warner sparkles in SRH's victory

Inspired by skipper David Warner’s whirlwind fifty, Sunrisers Hyderabad outplayed Chennai Super Kings by 22 runs to notch up a much-needed win and hand the table-toppers their second consecutive defeat in the IPL here on Saturday.

Put into bat, Warner (28-ball 61) and Shikhar Dhawan (37) stitched an 86-run opening stand to help SRH post 197 for seven in 20 overs. Warner (378 runs from 8 games) struck from the word go as the left-handed opener hit 11 fours and a six to register his 5th half-century of the tournament and get the orange cap from Rajasthan Royals’ Ajinkya Rahane (339 from 9 matches).

Backing their batsmen’s effort, bowlers played their part to restrict CSK to 170 for six in 20 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2-32) drew first blood, ousting Brendon McCullum (12).
