The 28th match of the 14th season (IPL 2021) of the Indian Premier League was played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Sunrisers are a bit upset in IPL 2021 and in this way they have made many changes in their team.
The biggest change has been about leadership in the team. Before the match, a statement was issued by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team that Kane Williamson was being given the captaincy of the team in place of David Warner. The highlight of this match was the absence of David Warner from the playing eleven.
During the match, the eyes of the camera went to David Warner sitting outside several times. David Warner was out of the captaincy in this match, but he could not find a place in the playing eleven as well. In this match, Warner had to sit on the bench. Despite this, he played the responsibilities of the 12th player and tried his best to help the team.
The Australia and Sunrisers opener fully played his role of the 12th player during the entire match. He was seen carrying drinks for the players on the field. During the break, Warner is also seen guiding players and new captain Williamson. Meanwhile, a video of the Australian star is going viral on social media.
In a short clip, you can see that David Warner, sitting in the dugout, is seen fighting with his fellow player of Sunrisers Hyderabad for the responsibility of the 12th player. David Warner is frantically fighting with fellow players to take drinks and hemat on the ground.
Even such a big change in Sunrisers Hyderabad could not be of any benefit. The team suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals by 55 runs. Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and decided to bowl first. Fielding did not start well for Hyderabad.
The players missed a number of catches, which were beneficial for the batsmen of the opposing team. Batting first, Rajasthan Royals gave Hyderabad a big target of 220 runs. Jose Butler played a brilliant innings of 124 runs in 64 balls. He got the support of captain Sanju Samson, who added 48 runs to the scoreboard.
Chasing the target of 221 runs given by Rajasthan Royals, Sunrisers Hyderabad batsmen could not show a good game. The batsmen lost their wickets cheaply. The team could score only 165 runs in 20 overs and lost the match by 55 runs.
