Jonny Bairstow scored an explosive 114 for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 118 runs yesterday.

The Yorkshireman opened the innings alongside David Warner, and was in his usual belligerent mood smashing the ball to all parts of the ground. In an innings that lasted 56 balls with 12 boundaries and seven maximums, Bairstow made a real stamp on the Indian Premier League in just his third game.

The right-handed batsman had made good starts in the opening two games, scoring 45 and 39, but will be delighted to have gone on and notched up a maiden hundred in the tournament.

Bairstow will be crucial to England’s hopes for a huge summer, which includes a one-day series against Pakistan, the ICC Cricket World Cup and an Ashes series. The Yorkshireman will be particularly excited about the prospect of representing the Three Lions at his home ground, Emerald Headingley, starting with the Royal London One-Day International against Pakistan on Sunday 19th May.

Tickets are available and start from just £50 for adults and £20 for juniors. Secure your seat now and get behind Bairstow!
