Warner put on a 118-run opening stand with Jonny Bairstow, the Englishman he will likely square off against during this year's Ashes. Bairstow played a composed innings of 39 off 35 balls before being castled by Piyush Chawla in the 13 over.
KKR vs SRH: Where will this IPL match be played?
Apart from their batting which boasts of global players like Martin Guptill and Shakib-Al-Hasan, SRH also has a strong bowling line up with the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Nabi, and Khaleel Ahmed. However, Indian all-rounder Vijay Shankar proved his worth once again as his cameo of 40 off 24 deliveries helped SRH reach a strong total of 181/3 in 20 overs. Later, Rashid Khan was chosen as the "Man of the Match" for his all round efforts.
But these are moments which a certain Andre Russell cherishes. Putting behind the embarrassing ball tampering scandal, that kept him out previous year, the Aussie smashed three sixes and nine boundaries in his 53-ball knock.
The Lakers And Luke Walton Have Agreed To Mutually Part Ways
As the Kings are not the most stable franchise in the league, the hope is Walton gets enough time to develop their young core. The Lakers battled health problems for much of the season, with only Kentavious Caldwell-Pope playing in all 82 games.
For the hosts, Russell was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/32.
Rashid, who hit a 10-ball 34 past year to help Sunrisers beat KKR in the second qualifier and qualify for the final, added they would also look to such a player lower down the order.
But Russell, who took two of the three wickets, including that of Warner, came into the party with his pyrotechnics at No.5, hitting four huge sixes besides as many boundaries and the Knights won by six wickets. Warner had missed the last season for his involvement in the ball tampering scandal.
Shubman Gill, however, delivered the finishing touch by blasting Shakib Al Hasan for two sixes to cap a stunning comeback victory. But Robin Utthapa took a brilliant low diving catch just inches above the ground to end Warner's fabulous innings.
Luke Walton out as Lakers coach after 3 losing seasons
Walton's Lakers went 37-45 this season and rumors of a coaching change persisted throughout the disappointing year. Rondo, who is on the sixth team of his career, praised Walton for his ability to relate to players.
The Kane Williamson-led side has been in cracking form for the past few seasons since winning the trophy in 2016 under the leadership of David Warner.
When Rana went lbw in the 16th over from the first ball after a delay of over 10 minutes caused by the lights in one of the towers going off, it appeared the Knight Riders were down and out too.
