Captain David Warner's belligerent innings of 96 not out helped Sunrisers Hyderabad overcome Gujarat Lions by four wickets on Friday to enter the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL). After Aaron Finch's 32-ball 50 lifted Gujarat to 162 for seven in the second qualifier at the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium, Warner singlehandedly drove his team past the target as he forged a 46-run unbroken stand with Bipul Sharma (27 not out off 11 balls) for the seventh wicket. Warner, who hit 11 fours and three sixes in his 58-ball stay, ran out of support and his side was reduced to 117/6 in 15.5 overs when the last recognized batsman, Naman Ojha departed.
