David Warner, The senior Australian opener has been one of the best batsmen in the history of the Indian Premier League. The left-hander has close to 6000 runs to his name in the same league. He parted ways with the Sunrisers Hyderabad after the captaincy saga last year and entered the mega-auction.
The Delhi Capitals dominated the bid in the mega event to bag David Warner for a whopping INR 6.25 CR. His former franchise SRH did not look interested to bid for the marquee batter. He has represented the same franchise (Delhi Daredevils) during the initial phase of his career in the IPL.
David Warner marked his presence for the Rishabh Pant-led team with a significant contribution. The left-hander managed to score 432 runs in as few as 12 league games that he featured in. Warner average 48 in the season and had an incredible strike rate of 150. He scored five half-centuries in the season.
The Australian made a severe impact with the bat and was involved in several match-winning opening stands for DC. Unfortunately, DC fell short by just 1 victory as they were eliminated in their last game of the season. It was a season full of ups and downs for the Delhi-based team. Their campaign was hit by injuries and the unavailability of players.
David Warner on his daughters’ expectations
Meanwhile, David Warner and his wife Candice Warner opened up about what the daughters expect from the left-hander every time he enters the field during an interaction with the local broadcaster Fox Cricket.
“It was an experience. The girls take David (Warner) getting out really, really hard. And it’s me going afterward. ‘No, it’s okay. He actually did really well. He contributed to the team’. But they expect him to get 100 every single game,” said Candice Warner.
“It’s not.It’s actually hard because when you come home, and every day it’s just like why can’t you get a 100? It’s not that simple,” said David Warner.
