Star Australian batsman and the skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League, David Warner, was dismissed in a bizarre manner in the first match of SRH in IPL 2020 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Prior to this, SRH won the toss and elected to field first. Both the teams came up with certain unexpected changes in the match.
RCB scored 163-5 in the first innings, thanks to half-centuries, from debutant, Devdutt Padikkal, and AB de Villiers. SRH suffered a major setback in the first innings as Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who recently, flew from England after the bilateral ODI series win, seems in great trouble after having bowled his first over for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their first match of IPL 2020 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Marsh looked in serious agony after having bowled his first bowl for SRH.

In the second over, Jonny Bairstow was batting in full flow and tried to smash Umesh Yadav in front of the wicket. However, the ball touched Yadav’s fingertips and hit the wicket. David Warner was on the non-striker’s end and was out of the crease. Due to this, he had to eventually leave the field.
