Delhi Capitals lost their third match in a row as the David Warner-led side suffered a horror 57-run defeat to Rajasthan Royals. Skipper David Warner, who took over the reins for the season in the absence of Rishabh Pant, scored a half-century himself but didn’t impress critics with his pace of scoring runs as the team couldn’t get anywhere near Rajasthan’s total of 199 runs. Former Delhi Capitals captain Virender Sehwag, issuing a brutal message for Warner, urged the Australian batter to pull up his socks and score quicker runs, or else, “don’t play in IPL”.
“I feel it is time that we tell him in English now so that Warner listens to it and feels hurt. David, if you are listening, please play well. Score 50 in 25 balls. Learn from Jaiswal, he hit it in 25 balls. If you cannot do that, do not come and play in the IPL,” Sehwag said on Cricbuzz.
“It would have been better for the team if David Warner got out for 30 runs, rather than making 55-60. Players like Rovman Powell and Ishan Porel could have come out much earlier and maybe could have done anything. No balls were left for those players, and they are big hitters in team,” he added.
