Both the batsmen helped SRH post 77 runs inside the first six overs against Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Stadium. Wriddhiman Saha was the one who started the onslaught as he took on Delhi’s main bowler Kagiso Rabada.
As soon as Ravichandran Ashwin came to bowl in the third over of the innings, David Warner went into overdrive and started showing off his big-hitting skills.
