Just ahead of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Delhi Capitals (DC) clash in Dubai, SRH skipper David Warner announced the inclusion of Wriddhiman Saha in the playing XI. Saha, being the wicketkeeper-batsman, was roped in as a replacement to Jonny Bairstow. 

Indeed, it was a blessing in disguise, as Saha, who opened the innings with David Warner, went on to make a 107-run partnership in just 9.4 overs, following which skipper Warner departed. Saha continued his batting and smashed 87 runs off only 45 balls. 

In his terrific innings, that comprised of two sixes and 12 fours, he set SRH total soaring as high as 219/2 in 20 overs, an unlikely result in Dubai. As he wrapped the entire SRH innings, tweets showered in praising the young man.
