We want to finish in the top place: WarnerHyderabad: Expressing happiness over winning their IPL match against Deccan Chargers here to reclaim the top position, Delhi Daredevils batsman David Warner said the team has to keep its good show going to do well in tournament ahead.

Warner (109 not out off 54 balls) along with Naman Ojha (64 not out) shared a massive century stand to lead Delhi to a nine-wicket win over the Chargers.

Describing Ojha as a fantastic player, who played an excellent hand to script Delhi`s victory, Warner said the young Indian player can bat anywhere in the order.

Asked about the road ahead for Delhi, he said: "We are in good space at the moment. We messed up a little bit in the last game. We must stay at the top and we want to finish in the top place. We have to keep playing well, make sure that you are at top and keep working hard."

And about the time when Virender Sehwag exited early, he said: "Sehwag is a great player. If he goes or does not go, we have to keep playing well. What I did, I should be doing that exactly."

Referring to the 126-run partnership by Deccan`s Shikhar Dhawan and Cameron White, Warner told reporters that his team could have bowled a "little bit" better, but expressed satisfaction over the way the batting turned out.

Meanwhile, Chargers Captain Kumar Sangakkara regretted that the team lost despite a great performance by Dhawan, who slammed a 49-ball 84, and Cameron White who struck a fifty.

Asked how difficult it was to keep the players motivated, Sangakkara said: "I keep saying that we are all professionals. We have to enjoy playing and try to give off your best. The players are not down and out. None has given up."
