David Warner became the fourth man to reach the landmark of 10,000 T20 runs during Sunrisers Hyderabad’s clash with Chennai Super Kings.

The Australian opener was from his best, using up 55 balls for 57 runs in an innings that left his side somewhat under par after winning the toss and opting to bat.

That fact made clearer by the dominance of Kane Williamson, who smashed 26 in 10 deliveries after replacing Warner at the crease in the 18th over.

It was the 34-year-old’s second half century of this year’s Indian Premier League, following 54 against Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier in the campaign.

No overseas player has scored as many IPL runs as the Australian left-hander, who has managed 5,447. Only Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan sit ahead of him on the all-time list.
