Last Night Performance:
David Warner signed off from VIVO IPL 2019 in style; the Australian top-scored for the Sunrisers for the fifth time this season. His 81 – which came off 56 balls and contained 7 boundaries and 2 sixes – took his tally of runs for the season to 692. Warner also created his own scoring opportunity by playing the switch-hit on a couple of occasions. The one other feature of Warner’s innings, which won’t be evident from a glance at the scorecard, is how hard he ran between the wickets; Warner’s 81 contained 25 singles and 8 twos.
Given the enormity of the chase in front of Kings XI Punjab, the spotlight was on their openers, Chris Gayle and KL Rahul. After Gayle was dismissed at the start of the third over, the onus fell on the shoulders of Rahul, who did not disappoint. Rahul once again started slowly, but accelerated as the innings progressed; he battled hard, constructed his innings, and played some delightful strokes in his 56-ball 79.
