‘Jos’ kids will be happy’ – David Warner’s hilarious reaction to not going after the century against Hyderabad

David Warner had the opportunity to score a hundred against his ex-team against Hyderabad on May 6. However, he didn’t try to get to the landmark, and instead prioritized that the team reaches a competitive total. Warner was on 92 with one over to go. When Rovman Powell asked Warner if he wants the strike so that he can get a hundred, Warner denied saying that team runs are more important. Rovman Powell blasted Umran Malik in the final over and took Delhi to 207-3.

Had the Aussie reached the 100-run mark, it would have been his fifth hundred in his Indian T20 League career and third for the 2020 finalists. In his first stint with the franchise from 2009 to 2013, Warner hit two hundreds, one in 2010 and the other one in 2012. On the other hand, England and Rajasthan batter Jos Buttler has hit three hundreds in the ongoing 15th season. When Warner was asked why he didn’t go for a hundred, he hilariously said that he will let his English counterpart score centuries.

“Hopefully they (his kids) are still asleep but I think they might be happy. But I still didn’t get a hundred! Jeebiess, that’s right! I’ll leave that (the hundreds) to Jos,” Warner said at the post-match presentation.

Last month, the southpaw had revealed that his kids ask him why he is not hitting centuries in the tournament. “The kids just want to know why I cannot get a hundred and why I cannot do it like Jos Buttler who is hitting sixes as well,” Warner had said after the game against Punjab Kings where he had scored 60 runs.

Talking about the game between Delhi and Hyderabad, the Men In Blue and Red won the game by 21 runs. With this win, they have registered their fifth win of the season. They need to win at least three out of four games to qualify for the playoffs.
