David Warner, on Thursday, produced a brilliant innings for Delhi against Hyderabad in the Indian T20 League 2022. He scored 92 runs in 58 balls to help Delhi reach a score of 207-3 in their 20 overs. The opening batter played some brilliant strokes and stayed not out in the end. However, he missed his first hundred of the season by just eight runs .

While the left-hander has four half-centuries in the season, he hasn't scored a hundred yet. Warner had the opportunity to get to the three figure mark but he decided to play for the team. With Warner needing another eight runs for the century, Rovman Powell asked Warner if he wants the strike. However, Warner, being a team man, asked him to score boundaries.  When asked about him letting go of the opportunity to score a century, David Warner hilariously said that he has left scoring hundreds for Jos Buttler. Notably, Buttler is the highest run-scorer of this season. He has scored 588 runs in 10 matches, including three centuries this season.

"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.

Notably, Warner had previously stated that his daughters want him to score a century like Buttler. "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.

Returning to the game, Warner along with Rovman Powell( 67 runs in 35 balls), helped Delhi to a monstorous total. Later, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur grabbed three and two wickets respectively to help the men in blue and red win the match by 21 runs.

Meanwhile, after 50 matches, David Warner is the fourth-highest run-scorer in the Indian T20 League 2022. He has scored 356 runs in eight matches at an average of 59.33 . Delhi, on the other hand, has played 10 games in the season, winning five of them. The Rishabh Pant-led team currently stands fifth in the points table. They play their next game against Chennai on the 8th of May at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai.
