Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Delhi Daredevils by 7 wickets

  • SRH have performed well even without Bhuvneshwar Irfan Pathan

AB de Villiers (1) returned after missing two games due to fever but lasted only four deliveries as the South African was stumped off the first delivery he faced against Harbhajan. That's where they arguably are missing Warner.

Pathan remained unbeaten on 27 off only 12 balls to take Sunrisers home off the penultimate ball.

In response, Hyderabad got there with a ball to spare. "It was a good chase from them". Then there is the absence of David Warner, who would have been at the top of the order. The teenager, through the course of the tournament, has scored most of his runs in boundaries against short-of-a-length deliveries, with not too many bowlers bowling full to him. It could be Delhi's year to do so. Prior to the break, they converted three almost lost causes to wins and six points. In his two innings, he scored 45 - off 39 balls against Rajasthan Royals, and off 31 balls against Delhi.

A penny for Gautham Gambhir's thoughts.

Prithvi Shaw's 65 off 36 balls helped Delhi to post a competitive 163 for 5 in stipulated 20 overs. On the other side, Delhi can not afford another defeat if they want a play-off berth.

Given where these two are in the table at first glance it may seem like [1.74] is as close to buying money as you'll see in the IPL. Courtesy their splendid bowling attack, SRH emerged as good defenders initially but by defeating Delhi Daredevils with a seven-wicket margin on Saturday, they proved that they can pull off tight chases as well.

In an unconventional move, Delhi Daredevils won the toss and made a decision to bat first. The result ultimately came down to moments, the short periods of play that completely changed the flow of that match.

If Delhi don't make the play-offs, it certainly won't be Rishabh Pant's fault. No other Bangalore batsmen reached double figures.

"Catches win matches and we have been practicing really hard on our fielding, but when the nerves are really high, it happens and is part of the game; can't really complain now". After the openers were sent back, Williamson stitched an important stand with Manish Pandey, albeit at a slow pace.

Dhawan is struggling as mentioned already and that 57 of Pandey's against the Kings XI was his only decent hit of note.

But there's an alternative way of getting with the ultra-consistent Williamson.

50 for Prithvi Shaw.

It's hard to see how Munro is shorter than his global skipper, who is 7/4.

Shaw show in vain as Hyderabad's Hales, Williamson push Delhi towards exit door. But here he'll be up against the best bowling attack in the competition. He smashed a full toss from Dan Christian in the last over for six, followed by a boundary to ease the pressure, bringing down the equation from 14 off 6 to 2 off 3. His average of 46 certainly suggests so.
