Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar reckons change of franchise is doing a world of good to Delhi Capitals star opener David Warner in the TATA IPL. Warner, who was part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp last season is doing exceedingly well for his new franchise.
Praising Warner’s consistent batting performance in the most exciting IPL season, Gavaskar said the senior Australia batsman is feeding on the positive atmosphere inside the change room which is evident with the kind of form he’s in.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Gavaskar said, “Sometimes when you are not doing well, the atmosphere in the change room isn’t always the best and that kind of affects your game. That seems to have happened with David Warner. Ever since he’s moved to Delhi Capitals, Warner looks happier and you can see that in his performance. When that kind of performance happens, what it does is makes the player want to do something more. It also lifts the other players in the team because they know what a (quality) player he is. What a fabulous player David Warner has been for the franchises he’s played for. Last year was an exception because that can happen to anybody. To see him comeback this is way is just fabulous.”
