Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner Varun Chakravarthy produced a brilliant delivery to dismiss SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner during the eighth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Warner was batting beautifully, but failed to read Chakravarthy's delivery soon after the time-out, and ended up offering an easy return catch to legspinner. The Aussie tried to push it casually, probably thinking the ball will turn. But the ball kept it's line.
Watch the dismissal here:
Warner won the toss and, for a change, opted to bat first. But Hyderabad struggled against a disciplined bowling attack from Kolkata. They said a 143-run target.
Both the teams lost their respective openers.
