Positive atmosphere in DC locker room helped David Warner, Gavaskar believes

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]Apr 28 (ANI): Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar reckons the franchise change is doing Delhi Capitals star starter David Warner a lot of good at the ongoing IPL 2022.

Warner, who was part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp last season, is doing very well for his new franchise.

Praising Warner’s consistent batting performance in the IPL’s most exciting season, Gavaskar said Australia’s senior batsman is feeding off the positive atmosphere within the locker room, which is evident with the kind of form he is in. .

Speaking on ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports, Gavaskar said: “Sometimes when you’re not doing well, the atmosphere in the locker room isn’t always the best and that affects your game. That seems to have happened with David Warner.” “Since moving to Delhi Capitals, Warner looks happier and you can see that in his performance. When that kind of performance happens, what it does is make the player want to do something else. It also elevates the other players in the game. team because they know what a (quality) player he is. What a fabulous player David Warner has been for the franchises he’s played in. Last year was an exception because that can happen to anyone. Seeing him come back like this is just fabulous “added the legendary batsman.

In the five innings of IPL 2022, Warner has squashed 219 runs at an average of 54.75 and a strike rate of 157.55.

Former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden also complimented Warner on the way he is pacing his innings for Delhi Capitals and said the left-handed batsman’s fitness is helping him perform well year on year.

Hayden said: “It doesn’t matter what bowlers, what franchise he plays for. When he gets going, David Warner is a very, very special player. He obviously uses the rhythm (of the ball) very well, but you never see a slide in his game, he never slows down in his game. I think his starting partner Prithvi Shaw is scoring pretty early. Shaw’s strike rate through the power play is very high, but David Warner uses his fitness well and looks to hit deep. He knows how to pace his tackles.” As IPL 2022 slowly draws to a close commercially, the Delhi Capitals take on the Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday as both sides go head-to-head in a maddening rush to claim the two biggest points in a bid to keep their campaign going. afloat.
