Absolute pleasure watching Warner and Bairstow bat in IPL 2019: Kane Williamson

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson said he is awestruck by David Warner and Jonny Bairstow’s ball-striking ability in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL).Williamson’s comments came after David Warner and Jonny Bairstow brought up their fourth hundred-plus opening stand in IPL 2019 in their nine-wicket thrashing of Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. SRH vs KKR – Match report | Highlights Warner and Bairstow were at their brutal best as they made light work of a 160-run chase against KKR, who slipped to their fifth straight loss. 160 seemed to be a tricky target, considering the slowness on the Hyderabad pitch that made life difficult for KKR batsmen earlier in the afternoon.However, Warner and Bairstow were hitting the big ones at will right from the word go. The right-left duo didn’t allow the Kolkata spinners to settle down. Warner smashed KC Cariappa for 20 runs inside the powerplay as the mystery spinner looked clueless after replacing out-of-form Kuldeep Yadav in the playing XI.Well played, Jonny #SRH pic.twitter.com/37MpfzJ6npIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 21, 2019Warner got out for 67 off just 38 balls in the 13th over but the Australian opener had already done enough damage. Bairstow remained unbeaten on 80 from just 43 balls and took Sunrisers past the finish line as early as the 15 over.”The two at the top have been doing it all season, hopefully, they can continue, they were outstanding. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch the two at the top hit the ball like that,” Williamson said after Sunrsisers 9-wicket win.advertisementWilliamson though conceded the impending departure of Warner and Bairstow will be big losses to the Sunrisers. Notably, Bairstow will leave to join the England national team on April 23 while Warner is expected to miss the final few weeks of IPL 2019 for the World Cup preparation with Australia.”Without a doubt, Warner and Bairstow will be big losses, they are world class players, we knew at the start of the tournament that we will lose them at the back end of the tournament and new guys will come in then,” Williamson added.Meanwhile, Williamson also lauded his bowlers’ performance to restrict Kolkata Knight Riders to 159 for 8 after the visitors raced to a strong start inside the powerplay.Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed picked up three wickets, including that of dangerous KKR openers Chris Lynn (51) and Sunil Narine (25). Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed in-form Andre Russell for just 15 to knock the wind out of KKR’s batting performance on Sunday.”To take nothing away from the first half, the bowler’s came back from adversity, it was a really good effort,” Williamson added.Following the nine-wicket win, Sunrisers Hyderabad climbed back to the top-four of the points table. They now have 10 points from nine matches and face a stiff test against Chennai Super Kings on April 23.Also Read | Dinesh Karthik slams KKR bowlers after 5th straight defeatAlso See:last_img read more
