As the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) took on the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Eden Gardens, most of the fans were looking forward to seeing David Warner. The Aussie lad was making a comeback in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after a gap of one year. He received the ban by Cricket Australia (CA) for a period of one year while the IPL governing council too followed the suit.

Warner wasted no time in unleashing himself in the Orange jersey. He smashed two boundaries off Piyush Chawla in the second over. He continued to score boundaries for the Sunrisers as he even smashed Sunil Narine for two consecutive boundaries. Warner reached his fifty in style with a six on a short ball by Andre Russell.

The Australian southpaw went on to register his 37th half-century in the IPL, which is the highest by any cricketer as he surpassed Gautam Gambhir‘s tally of 36. However, that didn’t stop him as he and Jonny Bairstow put up a 118-run partnership for the opening wicket. Warner’s knock was cut short as Robin Uthappa held onto a superlative of a catch.
