Delhi Capitals lost their third match in a row as Rajasthan took the Capitals down by a 57-run margin on April 8, Saturday. It seems luck isn’t in the favour of the Delhi Capitals as they haven’t been able win any match in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League yet. David Warner, who took over the reins for the season in the absence of Rishabh Pant, managed to score 65 runs off 55 balls, with a run rate of 118.18. Despite being able to score a decent score, the Australian opener failed to impress the critics.
Warner, who has scored 158 runs in the three matches with a run rate of 117.04, has come under the scanner of many former players, and one of them is Virendra Sehwag. Former Indian cricketer and Delhi Capitals captain, Sehwag, has issued a remark for the player and asked him to either pull up his socks or not play in the tournament.
"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 a cricket news channel.
"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 further added.
Delhi Capitals, who failed to chase the target of 200 runs set by the Royals on April 8, faced their third defeat of the season by 57 runs. Hanging at the bottom of the points table, DC will now come across the record-time champion, Mumbai Indians, on April 11, Tuesday.
