T20 2018: Hyderabad beat Delhi by 9 wickets

11 May, 2018, 00:47 | Author: Rachael Silva
  • Delhi Daredevils vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (DD vs SRH)

Later on, Rishabh Pant was involved in run-outs of DD skipper Shreyas Iyer and Shreyas Patel that helped the visitors get back into the game.

Pant sent the ball out for another four in the nineteenth over to reach his maiden IPL century after connecting well with a Siddharth Kaul delivery. Things are heating up and the pressure in on Pant again.

Most of the match-winning performances have in fact come from Indian players, in most cases from youngsters who are yet to establish themselves in global cricket - Shubhman Gill, Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant and K Gowtham - to name a few.

Out of the 11 times that these two teams have faced each other, Sunrisers hold an edge having won on seven occasions as compared to Delhi's four victories.

Unbeaten Shikhar Dhawan scored 92 and Kane Williamson contributed 83 runs for Hyderabad. SunRisers has 100 per cent record while defending totals.

By now, Delhi had lost all hopes of a comeback as the Sunrisers duo handsomely outbatted the efforts of the hosts with seven balls to spare.

Table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad face the last placed Delhi Daredevils in the 42nd match of IPL 2018 at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.


And Pant was involved in a frightful mix-up that resulted in skipper Shreyas Iyer (3) getting run-out going for a non-existent single.

While Shreyas has aggregated 351 runs at a strike rate of 149.36 (four fifties), Pant has 393 runs to his name this season with three half-centuries. To SRH's agony, he was trapped plumb in front by Harshal Patel, which brought Kane Williamson at the wicket.

The scare for DD will be the spin bowing trio of Rashid Khan, Yusuf Pathan and Shakib al Hasan. Most importantly, while SRH storm into the playoffs, Delhi have officially been eliminated from the tournament.

After winning the toss DD made a decision to bat first.

Neither Prithvi Shaw (9) nor Jason Roy (11) could fire from the top of the order for the home side but Pant blasted an incredible 128 not out hitting Bhuvneshwar Kumar for three successive sixes in the final over of their innings. Firstly, Brendon McCullum played an unbeaten 158 not out in the first match of the IPL in 2008 against KKR.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
