Delhi Capitals opening batter David Warner reserved his best for his former team SunRisers Hyderabad as he played an unbeaten knock of 92 to help the Rishabh Pant-led side post 207/3 in 20 overs.

The shot is now being hailed as "shot of the tournament" by many on Twitter.
Warner played the shot in the penultimate over of Delhi's innings of the bowling off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
On the first ball of the 19th over, Warner reversed his stance and seemed to be setting himself for a ramp shot. However, Bhuvneshwar bowled it wide and the batter got into a tangle but he somehow managed to get his bat down in time and the ball raced for a boundary towards the third man region.
As soon as the shot was played, many fans took to Twitter and labelled it as the "shot of the tournament".
