Warner ascends to another IPL record

Australian opening batsman David Warner hit yet another scorching half-century for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the clash against Kolkata Knight Riders, to establish his strong hold over the top position in the Indian Premier League (IPL) batting charts this season.

In the midst of an amazing run-scoring spree, it seems nothing can currently stop Warner from demolishing records for fun. He struck a magnificent 67 off 38 balls during his 131-run opening stand with England's Jonny Bairstow, who joined the action with an unbeaten 80, to help Hyderabad cruise to another victory with an emphatic 9-wickets margin.

The left-handed opener has amassed 517 runs on his comeback to the IPL, after missing the previous edition of the lucrative tournament alongside compatriot Steve Smith due to the ball-tampering scandal.

This marks the fifth successive season that Warner has scored more than 500 runs through the course of an IPL tournament. Exuding class and dominance, it seems Warner could well be on his way to scoring a heap of runs with a number of matches to go till the conclusion of the league.
