IPL 2021, DC beats SRH in super over: David Warner says, ‘We couldn’t bat well in the middle overs’, harsh call to leave out Manish Pandey- Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner on Sunday accepted the middle-order conundrum was one of the prime reasons why SRH failed to pull off a win in their fourth out of the fifth match in IPL 2021. He also regretting under bowling Vijay Shankar.

“It has been a tough one. The way our bowlers came back after the powerplay was fantastic. We knew on this surface if you got off to a flier it is always going to be tough in the middle, the bowlers executed well. I thought Vijay, who is not one of our strike bowlers, bowled fantastically, could have bowled him an extra one, that’s the handiness of having him in the middle but the bowlers got us to a good total to chase,” Warner said.

Warner further added that it was a harsh call to leave out Manish Pandey from the playing XI.

“Obviously Jonny at the top of the order and Kane taking it deep, we couldn’t bat well in the middle overs. It depends on the selectors, it was a harsh call as per my opinion (On leaving out Manish Pandey). But at the end of the day it is a decision that they took and you cannot discredit Virat, he’s a very good player and the surface was difficult. They bowled well in the middle and made it challenging for us. If you hit the ball to a world class fielder, you are going to get run out 9 times out of 10 (about his run out),” he added.
