" Eoin Morgan (17) and Naman Ojha (2) also didn't last long."
Hyderabad, May 11 - Leading from the front, skipper David Warner struck a decent knock to help Sunrisers Hyderabad score 185/5 in 20 overs against Kings XI Punjab in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Monday.

Warner was the top scorer for his side with 81 off 52 balls, including six boundaries and five sixes.

Opting to bat, Sunrisers got off to a flying start with openers Warner and Shikhar Dhawan scoring 56 off first six overs.

But bowling change by Kings XI captain George Bailey worked wonders for the visitors, as spinner Glenn Maxwell broke the opening stand in his very first ball of the seventh over

A clever Maxwell looped the ball up outside off seeing Dhawan stepping out of the crease. The batsman was beaten in flight and wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha makes no mistake whipping the bails off in a flash.

The wicket didn't bother Warner as he kept on scoring freely, thus bringing up his half-century in just 36 balls.

He was well supported in the other end by incoming batsman Moises Henriques (28). The duo struck the ball to all parts and sneaking in with quick singles and twos, helped team reach 100 in the 13th over.

But Henriques had to return back to the pavilion in the very next over as he was caught off the bowling off Gurkeerat Singh. Sunrisers score was 121/2 in 13.4 overs.

Eoin Morgan (17) and Naman Ojha (2) also didn't last long.

For Kings XI, Beuran Hendricks (2/40) was the pick of the bowlers.
