David Warner has been one of the most consistent batsman in IPL history scoring tonnes of runs each season . He played some of the most impactful innings for Sunrisers winning many games but probably none better his 93 notout off 58 balls vs Gujarat Lions in 2016 qualifiers which took SRH to IPL final and a subsequent IPL title.

In the game Gujarat Lions scored 162/7 batting first . A pretty decent target to chase . However Sunrisers faltered badly as Dhawan was runout for 0 , Yuvraj , Hooda getting out for single digits while Henriques got out for 11 . David Warner was holding up one end and was playing a gem of an innings finding the gaps superbly for his piercing cover drives and running very hard for singles to twos as he singlehandedly took the innings along . Naman Ojha (10) stood for a while with him as Warner was looking for someone to hang around as he himself was raising his batting to another gear with couple of mighty sixes . Then came the help from spinner Bipul Sharma . The lefthander smote 3 mighty sixes to Warner’s relief to swing the game towards Sunrisers

Finally Warner hit a four and a single in the 20th over and scripted an outstanding 4 wicket victory against all odds with himself unselfishly remaining 93 notout off a mere 58 deliveries and taking SRH into the final of 2016 edition.
