David Warner smashed a marauding 126 runs off 59 deliveries as Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a crucial 48-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday.

The SRH captain smashed 10 fours and eight sixes to power his team to 209/3 in 20 overs.

In reply, KKR could only muster 161 for 7.

Warner and Shikhar Dhawan forged a 139-run partnership for the opening wicket as the former produced an astonishing show of power hitting.

The Australian also became the highest run-scorer of the tournament so far with a tally of 459 runs.

None of the KKR bowlers could stop Warner, who completed his 50 in only 20 deliveries.

Warner got a life at 88 when Chris Woakes dropped an easy catch at long-off off chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the 10th over. The catch went over the boundary line for a six and the following ball gave Warner another six to take him to 98.

The next over saw Warner complete a double with a flick towards midwicket off a Umesh Yadav delivery as he registered his century in just 43 deliveries.
