The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are off to a blazing start to this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) as Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have been amassing runs at the top, helping them crush sides.
The duo also scored individual centuries in the same innings against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) recently. In awe of their partnership, English skipper Eoin Morgan has drawn a comparison between them and one of the most iconic football partnerships, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Thinking about it since in different sports, in football it happens all the time. Compare Portugal's game where Ronaldo got Wayne Rooney sent off and had to go back and play for Manchester United two weeks later. It's trickier circumstances, but I'm sure Jonny is learning a huge amount from other guys that he's rubbing shoulders with,” he added.
