Pumped up David Warner says, “we have beaten RCB in 2016 finals, we can do the same in eliminator’
SRH skipper Warner is looking forward to eliminator against RCB and according to the opener, they are capable to beat the Virat Kohli-led side just like they defeated them in the IPL 2016 finals.
“RCB are a very good side. They have a lot of dangerous players. We beat them in the 2016 final. Another do-or-die game. Hopefully, we can carry the momentum from this MI game and win,” Warner said after winning against Mumbai Indians.
