Sunrisers captain Warner himself admitted that he was a bit nervous when Puran was batting. He said, ‘Enjoyed it, but when Nicholas was batting and there were four overs left, he was a little nervous.

Paying respect to Rashid, Warner said, “Rashid should be given a lot of respect, he is a world class bowler and he is good in the team. Of course, Bhuvi’s (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) exit is disappointing, but his exit will give other players a chance.

Bairstow said, ‘I was satisfied, of course I had my third half-century but it is important to achieve consistency with two consecutive half-centuries.
