New Delhi: The match played in IPL 2023 on the evening of 24 April was special in many ways. This was special because the competition was between two such teams, for whom victory is now the only way to move forward inside the league. But, a major reason for its specialness was also the captain of Delhi Capitals, David Warner, whose relations with Sunrisers Hyderabad have been bitter.
In the 15-year history of IPL, Sunrisers is one of the teams that have worn the mantle of becoming champions. And, it was David Warner who made this team the champion for the first time. But, after that, what the franchise, known as Orange Army did with Suluk Warner, became a big controversy in IPL history.

First the captaincy went, then the place in the team
Sunrisers Hyderabad first took his captaincy from Warner. Even then it was fine. But, after locking him in the room, he also longed to play the match. All this incident happened in IPL 2021 with the left-handed batsman. This season, under the captaincy of David Warner, the performance of Sunrisers Hyderabad was very poor in the first 6 matches. The result was that SRH handed over the captaincy from him to Kane Williamson.
He was also dropped from the team two matches after being stripped of the captaincy. Not only this, many times he did not even come on the ground with the rest of the team members. He was asked to stay in the hotel room from where he used to watch the match. Well, it was a bad phase for Warner and it is said that after darkness there is light.
When Hyderabad left Warner, Delhi bought it
The mega auction of IPL 2022 became that light for David Warner. Delhi Capitals expressed confidence in Warner released from Sunrisers Hyderabad and added him to himself for Rs 6.25 crore. David Warner is also with Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023. He also has a captain. And, under his captaincy, on the evening of 24 April, he got that opportunity, which he must have been looking for.
144 was not a winning score but fighting was definitely there
The fort belonged to the Sunrisers. Hyderabad, where Delhi Capitals captain David Warner was also an old player. Batting first, Delhi posted 144 runs on the score board. This score was not a guarantee of victory but it was one on which the fight could be fought. Warner’s heroes fought and won.
David Warner’s celebration says a lot
Delhi Capitals won the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 runs. The brightness of this victory was seen in David Warner’s celebration, which was also proof of his history making.
