Delhi Capitals (DC) did not have a good start against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and the team had already lost the wicket of its most experienced and biggest batsman David Warner in the very first over.
In any game, the confidence of the players takes them from the best to the best. When a player is in good form, his confidence also remains high and in such a situation, he tries to perform strong by taking maximum responsibility. This happens in cricket as well, but sometimes this confidence leads to such decisions, which also have the opposite effect and then there is no other option but to repent. At present David Warner There can be no better example of this than (David Warner). The star batsman of Delhi Capitals did something in the big match against Punjab Kings that he had to face situations like Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.
David Warner has been in excellent form this season and is raining heavily for Delhi. Also, in the absence of Prithvi Shaw, he is more responsible in the opening pair. In such a situation, when Delhi came out to bat first in the match against Punjab Kings on Monday 16 May, Warner was expected to make a big innings. Sarfaraz Ahmed was brought in for the opening with him, who returned to the team after several matches. It is not easy to believe what happened after that.
Your own decision was heavy
At the beginning of the innings, Sarfaraz Khan first went to take the strike and he was ready to bat. Spinner Liam Livingston was opening the bowling for Punjab. Seeing him coming to bowl, Warner himself took the decision and asked Sarfaraz to go non-strike and came to take the strike himself. Warner hoped that he would be able to face Livingston’s spin well, but this decision fell heavily on Warner. Livingston’s very first ball was short and was well outside the off-stump. Warner cut while chasing it and gave a simple catch directly in the hands of the point fielder.
From Warner to the experts and fans sitting in the commentary panel, it could not be believed. The special thing is that such a condition of Warner in IPL happened after eight years. That is, after eight years, he got out without scoring on his very first ball, which is called a golden duck.
The situation has become like Kohli-Rahul
Not only this, this season, Warner has now got his name written in that list of legends like KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, which no one will like. These three stars have become the batsmen to be dismissed on the very first ball of a match this season. Rahul had to face such a situation against Gujarat Titans and Virat Kohli against Sunrisers.
