David Warner was on 92 at the end of the 19th over against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He could have easily completed his hundred had he got a strike on the last six balls of the innings, but Rovman Powell didn’t take a single and played all the deliveries, which kept Warner at the other end.

When the West Indies batter Powell, who scored an unbeaten 67 off 35 balls, was asked about the reason behind keeping Warner away from the strike, he revealed the conversation he had with his batting partner ahead of the last over.

“I asked David Warner before the last over that if I should take a single so you can go for your century. He said ‘look, man, this isn’t how we play cricket. Just smoke how hard you can,” he said.

Warner hit 12 fours and 3 sixes while Rovman smashed 6 sixes and three fours to take DC to 207/3 in 20 overs.
