David Warner – who was in good form in the UK recently was expected to do big things in IPL – was runout in the most unlucky manner against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday in Match 3 of the ongoing Indian Premier League in UAE. Warner was dismissed for six as he was runout while backing up.

Bairstow hit the ball straight back – it was in the air – Umesh Yadav put his hand out trying to pluck the ball off thin air – it clipped his fingers and hit the stumps on his way. Warner was outside the non-striker’s crease and had no chance of making it back in time. He did not even wait for the umpire to go upstairs as he started making the long walk back. He was runout in the second over in the 164-chase. Also Read - India vs Australia 2020: Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari to Join Rest of Squad in Dubai
The wicket of Warner – who is the highest run-getter as an overseas player in the IPL – could be the gamechanger from an RCB point of view.

After having won the toss, SRH opted to field continuing the trend in the tournament. They managed to restrict the RCB side to 163 for five in 20 overs.
Debutant Devdutt Padikkal impressed one and all with his strokeplay as he top-scored with 56 off 42 balls. AB de Villiers also hit a timely 51 off 30 balls to give RCB a good finish. Eyes were on Kohli and he walked out to bat in the 12th over after opener Aaron Finch departed. Kohli was caught out in the deep for 14 off 13 balls.
Australian allrounder Mitchell Marsh walked off the ground after picking up an injury and did not bowl any further. It would be interesting to see he will bat or not if needed.
