T20 2018: Hyderabad beat Delhi by 9 wickets

Sunrisers Hyderabad will have to face Delhi Daredevils in the game tonight which does not look like a very hard task for the former.

Involved in two avoidable run-outs, Pant compensated the miscommunication on the field with a blistering unbeaten 63-ball 128 which contained 15 boundaries and seven sixes, to arrest a careless start from the hosts.

Thereafter, experienced global pair Dhawan and Williamson led an utterly chanceless run-chase, with the latter bringing up a sixth IPL fifty of the season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shikhar Dhawan, Shakib Al Hasan, Manish Pandey, Carlos Brathwaite, Yusuf Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper), Rashid Khan, Ricky Bhui, Deepak Hooda, Siddarth Kaul, T. Natarajan, Mohammad Nabi, Basil Thampi, K Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Sachin Baby, Chris Jorda, Tanmay Agarwal, Shreevats Goswami, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Alex Hales.

Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the top of the Points table with eight wins and 16 points while Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Daredevils is at the bottom of the Standings with just three wins and six points.

Dhawan who was in bad touch since he made his comeback scored 92* off 50 with 9 fours are 4 sixes. Both of them accomplished their half-centuries, which got the Sunrisers home with seven balls to spare.

In doing so, Dhawan scored his second half-century of the season off 30 balls. Captain Shreyas Iyer got run out after scoring just three runs as he broke into a sprint for a single while Pant chose to stay put at the batting end.

The table-toppers struck early in the power play as Shakib Al Hasan removed openers Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw. Sunrisers Hyderabad have nearly qualified for the playoffs as they are sitting well on the top with 16 points.

"Pant played a special knock and the target was above par".

The keeper-batsman then took charge of proceedings as he put on 55 runs off 38 balls for the fourth wicket with Harshal Patel (24). I think towards the end, the ball was coming nicely onto the bat.

Pant could not become the youngest batsman to score a century in the IPL but during this innings against Hyderabad, he becomes the youngest batsman to complete 1000 runs in IPL. And we have been playing on tough surfaces, so it was nice to go out and execute our batting plans.
