“I Take the whole responsibility” says David Warner after SRH’s defeat

Match 23: SRH lost the match against CSK

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper David Warner took full responsibility for the team’s loss against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) last night in Delhi.

While talking to the commentators after the match, Warner blamed his slow inning for the loss and said that he was very frustrated as every time he tried to hit a ball it would go directly to the fielders. The Australian batsman said that he took too many balls to score his 57, which is not acceptable in T20 cricket. Warner scored 57 off 55 balls and batted for the first 17 overs of the first innings. Warner praised Manish Pandey‘s inning and welcomed him back into the playing XI, saying

“He batted exceptionally well”.

Warner credited Kane Williamson and Kedar Jadhav for helping the team reach a respectable total in the end as the duo came in and scored some quick runs. 

“I take full responsibility. The way that I batted was obviously very slow. Obviously, I hit a lot of fielders and was very, very frustrated. Look I take full responsibility from the batting point of view. I felt Manish [Pandey] coming back into the team, the way that he batted was exceptional. And obviously Kane [Williamson] and Kedar [Jadhav] towards the back end there, they put some boundaries away and got us to a respectable total. I felt that we were probably just below par from where we were. But yeah look, at the end of the day, I’ll take full responsibility,”

Warner said at the post-match presentation. 

“I probably hit 15 good shots to the fielders, I couldn’t do ..much about it. They are the ones that make or break your innings. It gets frustrating as a batsman when you find the fielders,”

added the opener.
