IPL 2019: When David Warner Vowed 500 Runs to VVS Laxman, Tom Moody
Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman has revealed their former skipper David Warner vowed to score 500 runs for the franchise in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. Warner is at the top of the ladder in the run-getters list as he has scored 450 runs. The southpaw has scored his runs at an average of 75 and at a strike rate of 145.16.
Furthermore, Warner has scored five fifties and one hundred in the ongoing season. The left-handed batsman has batted at the top of his game and he has been instrumental in the success of the team.
Warner has been in sublime form.
Consequently, Warner has produced the runs as he had promised to VVS Laxman and Tom Moody before the season. Warner will play only 12 matches for the Orange Army as he will join Australian team. No England and Australian player will participate in the ongoing IPL after May 1.
VVS Laxman said while doing commentary, “David Warner came across to me and Tom Moody and said, I know I’m playing only 12 matches then I’ll promise you I’ll score 500 runs before going”.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad got back on track when they defeated Chennai Super Kings. David Warner was once again batted at his best as he gave a quick start to his team. The combative batsman scored a quickfire knock of 50 runs off just 25 balls.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the fifth position in the points table. They have won four matches and have lost as many in the ongoing edition of the tourney.
Consequently, David Warner will like to continue his good form going. He is going to play a key role if SRH is to make their way into the playoff stages. Sunrisers Hyderabad will play their next match against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 21 at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium at Hyderabad.
