Ton-up Warner powers Sunrisers Hyderabad to 209-3 against KKR

Swashbuckling opener David Warner smashed a sensational century to power Sunrisers Hyderabad to an imposing 209-3 against Kolkata Knight Riders in their IPL encounter here today.

Skipper Warner led from the front as he blasted 10 fours and 8 sixes in his 59-ball 126-run innings to single-handedly destroy the famed bowling attack of KKR after captain Gautam Gambhir had decided to bowl after winning the toss.

Warner and Shikhar Dhawan (29) produced a scintillating 139-run opening partnership in 76 balls. Once they were back into the hut, Kane Williamson (40) and Yuvraj Singh (6 not out) then took Sunrisers across the 200-mark.

This is the third time that Sunrisers have scored a 200- plus total. They had scored 207-4 and 207-3 respectively against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab early in the season.

For KKR, who are sitting pretty at the top of the table, none of the bowlers could make any impression as they were taken to the cleaners by Warner.
