David Warner is enjoying a great Indian Premier League season with the bat for the Delhi Capitals. In five games, he has scored 219 runs in five games with a stellar average of 55. Warner, who was part of SunRisers Hyderabad last season, was released from the franchise ahead of the mega sale after struggling with the bat in the past two IPL seasons. Speaking about Warner’s current form, former India batter Sunil Gavaskar thinks the veteran Australian batter looks happier since he’s DC.
Gavaskar said the positive atmosphere in the DC locker room has done wonders for Warner, something he may not have gotten over the past two seasons at SRH.
“Sometimes when you’re not doing well, the atmosphere in the dressing room isn’t always the best and that affects your game. That seems to have happened with David Warner. Since moving to Delhi Capitals, Warner looks happier and you can see that in his performance. When that kind of performance happens, it makes the player want to do something more,” Gavaskar told Star Sports .
“It also lifts the other players on the team because they know what a (quality) player he is. What a fantastic player David Warner has been for the franchises he has played for. Last year was an exception, because anyone can do that. seeing him come back like this is just fantastic,” he added.
Despite Warner’s excellent return with the bat, DC has struggled to get their season started.
The Rishabh Pant-led team is currently seventh in the table with seven points from as many matches.
