IPL 2020 – Captain David Warner’s big statement after the defeat of Sunrises Hyderabad

Batsmen need to score runs in top order – David Warner
David Warner further said that batsmen need to score runs in the top order. However, he also said that KKR bowlers bowled well.
We have to play better in the top order. But when the bowler bowls with a good line and length, then nothing can be done. However, we need to put more emphasis. We have to put fours-sixes and more. We played 35 dot balls which is not good for T20 cricket while the wicket was good enough for batting.
