Warner breaks IPL record on the way to historic win
Could David Warner be set to make an impact at the upcoming World Cup?
On the basis of his record-breaking partnership with Jonny Bairstow for Sunrisers Hyderabad overnight, he appears prime to take cricket’s biggest limited-overs tournament by storm.
Warner and Bairstow put on a record 185-run partnership off 16.2 overs, with Hyderabad posting 231 off their 20 overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Warner scored 100* off 55 deliveries in the partnership, before Bangalore were bowled out for 113 chasing the mammoth total.
