We want to turn Uppal Stadium into Sunrisers' fortress: Warner

News

"These (Hyderabad) are different conditions. The thing here is that we are trying to turn this ground into our fortress. Every team tries to win as many games at home as they can," said Warner, who enthralled one and all with his 59-ball-126 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

"Whether you win or loss the toss, you have to have a positive mindset and tell the guys to play freely. I expect my guys to go out there and give their 100 percent," said Warner.

The defending champions are in firm contention to seal a berth for the play-offs.

"We never take anything for granted. You don't be complacent. It's all about momentum in this game. You got to keep winning. Keep playing every game to win as we always do and try to get up in the position. We know the finals going to be played here.

"The teams are going to be thinking of how they are going to beat us at our home venue if we manage to make the final.

That s an added bonus for us. So we try to make our way up to the top two and give yourself the added bonus of making it to the final. We just got to wait and see how it pans out," he said.

On his own knock, Warner said:"It's always pleasing to go out there and score runs. It's also great that I went out there and had a clear gameplan. Sometimes against quality bowling opposition where there is a lot of pace, it's easy."

On Sunrisers batting strategy, Warner's advice to his team's batsmen is to commit to their shots. They did exactly that during the KKR match.
