Sunrisers Hyderabad’s David Warner led them to a maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) title on Sunday after the bowlers derailed Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) chase to fashion an eight-run victory.
Australian Warner (69) led from the front, top scoring for his side to steer Hyderabad to 208-7 after opting to bat at Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
