David Warner, Rashid Khan, star as Sunrisers Hyderabad wallop Gujarat Lions. GL 135/7 (20.0 Ovs), SRH 140/1 (15.3 Ovs).
Sunrisers Hyderabad overpowered Gujarat Lions by nine wickets in the IPL encounter.
David Warner roared back to form with a blistering 76 after rookie Afghan spinner Rashid Khan weaved a mesmerising spell as Sunrisers Hyderabad overpowered Gujarat Lions by nine wickets in an IPL encounter, here on Sunday.
It was Rashid's 3 for 19 that helped Sunrisers restrict Lions to a paltry 135 for 7 in 20 overs and then Warner blasted his way to an unbeaten 76 off 45 balls to finish the match in 15.3 overs.
All-rounder Moises Henriques (52 not out) once again proved his worth with the willow as the duo added 108 runs for the unbeaten second wicket.
While this was Hyderabad's second win in as many matches, last year's top-four finisher Lions now have had two defeats in a row.
Warner, who had a poor Test series against India, would be happy as he was in his elements, hitting six boundaries and four huge sixes.
