Story highlights

David Warner launched one over the ropes only for it to crash into a cameraman but luckily he was unhurt. 

Australian cricketer David Warner made a stupendous Indian Premier League comeback with a scintillating 85, helping Hyderabad reach a challenging 181/3 in their campaign opener. 

But unfortunately, the Orage Army failed to defend and lost the match to Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata

Putting behind the embarrassing ball-tampering scandal, that kept him out last year, the Aussie smashed three sixes and nine boundaries in his 53-ball knock. 

His produced an entertaining performance at the Eden Gardens and earned praises for his stunning comeback. But it was one of his big sixes that really caught spectators' eye. 

While playing the 32-year-old launched one over the ropes only for it to crash into a cameraman but luckily he was unhurt. 

"This has been absolutely bludgeoned. And hit our cameraman as well – what’s he doing?" one of the commentators said.

Another said, "He’s got to duck. He wasn’t even looking. Get a helmet on son."

This was third-highest total against Hyderabad which was successfully chased down in IPL history. 

The first was done by Punjab in 2014 when they chased 2016 and the second was Delhi's 186-run chase in 2017. 

Hyderabad is a team known for its depth and variation in bowling.
