Doesn’t matter what David Warner never fails while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. The flamboyant striker of the ball has been brilliant for the team once again the IPL, where he already topped the list of highest run-scorers. In between, he got a good chance to break the record of Virender Sehwag and Jos Buttler.

Both opening batsman Virender Sehwag and Buttler have smashed five fifty-plus knocks on a row in the IPL. David Warner, who scored fifty against Chennai Super Kings at Cheppauk Stadium equalled the record. Now, if he can get one more fifty in his kitty, he is going to be the owner of a new record in the tournament.

David Warner enjoys good numbers against Rajasthan:

So far, Warner has bagged 574 runs in 10 matches so far this season at an average of 71.75. Coming into the fixture against Rajasthan Royals, Warner has five back-to-back fifties to his name and with another one, he would go past Virender Sehwag and Jos Buttler to create an IPL record.

The good numbers for David Warner against Rajasthan Royals further boosts the hopes of him and his fans to finish the record. Even in IPL 2019,  his 69 and Jonny Bairstow’s 45 helped Sunrisers Hyderabad to chase down a massive tally on the board.

Recently, in another record, David Warner became the first batsman to score in excess of 500 runs in five consecutive editions, in which, he played. The flamboyant striker of the ball has crossed the milestone mark in 2014, 2015, 2016 and the 2017 edition of the tournament before crossing 500-run mark in the ongoing edition of the tournament.

Coming to Sunrisers Hyderabad, they would love to win the game against Rajasthan Royals at any cost. This would give them a much-needed two points, which would bolster their chances for the playoff stage.

For now, David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad is placed on number four of the IPL 2019 points table. Whereas, the Rajasthan Royals are on number seven of the points table. Warner will be key for the team, especially, in the absence of Jonny Bairstow at the top.
