On 1 April 2023, the Lucknow franchise kicked off their Indian T20 League 2023 campaign at the Ekana cricket stadium against Delhi. David Warner was leading the Delhi side as Rishabh Pant has been ruled out of the tournament. Meanwhile, KL Rahul and his men managed a winning start as they defeated Delhi by 50 runs.
It was a disappointing loss for Warner and his men. The Aussie batter scored a fifty but the strike rate was the main issue. However, after the match, David Warner was seen having a chat with the global mentor of Lucknow, Gautam Gambhir. Seeing that image, fans went crazy and shared their views on the social media platform.
