Warner crushes GL hopes, Sunrisers into maiden IPL final
New Delhi: Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner butchered the Gujarat Lions bowlers with unbeaten 58-balls 93-runs innings and helped SRH beat GL by 4 wickets in the Qualifier 2 of IPL 2016 here on Friday night at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.
With this spectacular win, SRH registered themselves for the finals of the Indian Premiere League, where they will clash with Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.
If Warner’s knock was a pure class, then Bipul Sharma’s cameo of 27 runs off just 11 balls with 3 sixes was audacious.
Previously, with Aaron Finch 32-balls 50-runs knock, GL set a decent total of 162 runs against Warner and brigade.
SRH bowlers Bhuneshwar Kumar continued his good form with bowling figures 4-0-27-2.
Ben Cutting also impressed as bagged two important wickets of Smith and Finch.
Gujarat Lions- Finch 50, McCullum 32; Bhuvneshwar 2/27, Cutting 2/20
Sunrisers Hyderabad- Warner 93, Bipul 27; Shivil Kaushik 2/22
