David Warner showed that his duck against Rising Pune Supergiants was just a one-off blip in an otherwise red-hot streak. Like he had done during his 25-ball 58 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first face-off this season, Warner hammered the visitors' attack to all parts of the ground during his 50-ball 92, his fifth half-century in seven matches. His knock led Sunrisers Hyderabad to the top half of the table with a 15-run win, after the sides had managed to play a full game despite rain delaying the start by an hour.

Warner used his force, timing and gigantic bat to hit boundaries regularly. He found an able partner in Kane Williamson who scored 50 off 38 in his first game of the season. Their second-wicket stand of 124 runs in 12.1 overs charged Sunrisers to 194 for 5, their highest total of the season. The Royal Challengers chase showed promising signs initially and the hosts helped them by dropping AB de Villiers twice, but Sunrisers' quicks and the pressure of a rising asking rate were too much for the visitors.
