Ahead of the fixture, the excitement among fans was at its peaks as it was also DC skipper, David Warner’s homecoming as he took the field in Hyderabad where he had played for SRH between 2014 and 2019 before the action was shifted to the UAE where he played his last couple of seasons for the franchise. Ahead of the match, Warner was seen in a fun mood as he shared a light moment with his former teammate and SRH fast bowler, Bhuvneshwar Kumar by touching his feet.

In a video shared by the IPL official Twitter handle, David Warner could be seen running towards Bhuvneshwar and hilariously touching his feet before hugging him. Seeing Warner’s antics, Bhuvneshwar and Ishant Sharma couldn’t help but burst into laughter.

Here is the video of the incident:

David Warner played for SRH for seven seasons between 2014 and 2021 (barring 2018 when he suffered a ban) and even led them to an IPL title in 2016. The southpaw scored runs quite consistently for his franchise as he won the coveted Orange Cap thrice playing for SRH in 2015, 2017, and 2019.

His successful run with the ‘Orange Army’ ended after the 2021 season when SRH finished at the bottom of the points table and Warner was seen warming the bench, following which he was bought by Delhi Capitals in the following season. The southpaw was picked up by the Delhi-based franchise at the mega auction in 2022 for INR 6.25 Crore.

The entire Delhi Capitals batting continued their disastrous form of the season as they were restricted to 144/9 in the first innings. Washington Sundar was the pick of the bowlers for his side as he picked 3/28 in his four-over spell while Bhuvneshwar Kumar finished his quota with figures of 2/11.
