DC vs SRH in IPL 2021: David Warner’s flow show continued in IPL 2021 as SRH returned to action in UAE. Warner departed for a three-ball duck against Delhi Capitals while facing pacer Anrich Nortje in the very 1st over. The swashbuckling opener was coming on the back of a lack of cricket for the last 5 months. It affected him badly as he failed to pounce on the opportunity in absence of Jonny Bairstow.

DC vs SRH in IPL 2021: One of the vital cogs of SRH in deciding their fate of IPL 2021, David Warner struggled with his strike rate even though he slammed two half-centuries. In six games, he scored 193 runs with an average of 32.16 but it was his uncharacteristic slow strike rate of 110.28 that irked the SRH team management.

DC vs SRH in IPL 2021

  • Warner strike rate is under the scanner. He has a batting strike rate of just 110 in IPL 2021
  • It was the second instance when Warner departed cheaply against DC. Last time, he had scored 6 runs and the match had entered a super over with DC winning the match.
  • Warner is the leading run-scorer for SRH in IPL. His failure led to the franchise staying at No.8 in the IPL 2021 Points Table.
  • For SRH, a lot will also depend on David Warner’s batting. He struggled on slow pitches in India but the wicket in Dubai is two-paced and he will have to be on his top while also keeping a healthy strike rate.
  • He had slammed 548 runs in the last edition of IPL held in UAE. As a result, SRH had qualified for the playoffs.
  • With England’s attacking batsman Jason Roy in the fray of the opening slot, Warner needs to be wary of his performances.

DC vs SRH in IPL 2021: Absence of cricket 

David Warner’s dismissal was quite familiar with the recent struggle with AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell and a number of CSK players. The players are away from the action in the last five months.

It’s going to be difficult for him [MS Dhoni], because once you are not playing international cricket, the IPL is a very difficult tournament, its not like CPL and other leagues. IPL is where you face top-quality bowlers,” Gautam Gambhir had told GamePlan.

The above statement is applicable for all the batsmen who have missed live cricket for the last few months.
