David Warner: ‘For us it’s about backing yourself and coming out and executing your skills’. In the IPL 2023 match on April 20. The Delhi Capitals defeated the Kolkata Knight Riders by a score of four wickets.
The Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by four wickets on Thursday, April 20. At the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, officially opening their IPL 2023 season. Despite DC’s back-to-back losses in the IPL, David Warner has been their most reliable performer. Notably, the DC skipper struck another fifty to lead the team from the front in the game against KKR.
The strike rate for all of his previous 30-plus scores, though, was around 120, but he finished close to 140 versus KKR. The Capitals did not lose wickets at the start of their innings, as they had in previous games, and Warner was able to hit at a faster rate because he utilized the powerplay. A noteworthy feat was the Australian’s 57 off 41 balls, which included 11 boundaries.
Warner responded that there would be many detractors who would say that he hasn’t been batting the way he typically does when questioned about the criticism he has received for his low strike rate. He said that they would have attacked him for leaving if he had, but that’s just how the game works.
“We didn’t lose three wickets in a row. There are going to be a lot of critics out there to suggest that I haven’t been batting the way I normally bat. But when you lose three wickets in a row in two overs, and I faced three balls, what can you do? You can’t really do anything. You have to have some sense of responsibility. Just like little Bangalore. You know (if) I get out, people would have criticised me getting out but that’s just the game, that’s how it is,”Warner said
David Warner “I felt that I had my rhythm back again”
Warner continued by saying that the team’s ability to perform at its best is dependent upon everyone having faith in themselves. The 36-year-old added that he felt like he had found his groove again and that his time on the internet was joyful. He continued by saying that he lost a lot of wickets in the first two games because he was too cautious, but that he now believes that merely playing his normal game can benefit the team.
“For us it’s about backing yourself and coming out and executing your skills. Today I felt like my match-ups were there and I’ll take the powerplay on. And we didn’t lose wickets in clumps in the first two overs. So that plays a big role as well. But for me I felt that I had my rhythm back again, I had a good couple of net sessions. I was probably a bit tentative losing a lot of wickets in the first couple of games but for me it’s about going out there and just playing like the way I do and the way that I know, and then it’s going to be better off for us and the team,”He said.
