IPL 2018: Delhi Daredevils vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

  • Best innings of IPL 2018’ Twitter explodes in praise as Rishabh Pant smashes 63-ball 128

It was a must-win game for the Delhi Daredevils as they looked to avenge their defeat against Sunrisers in Hyderabad in their previous game.

Rishabh Pant's magnificent knock of 128* goes in vain as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat the Delhi Daredevils by 9 wickets to qualify for the playoffs with flying colors.

Both Williamson and Dhawan remained unbeaten on the night as they ensured none of the other SRH batsmen had any role to play in their team's highest run chase of all time. After losing opener Alex Hales in the second over, the pair put their combined worldwide experience to use as they added a season-record 176-run partnership for the second wicket, chasing down Delhi's total in clinical fashion to arrive at the total with two full overs to spare.

While Patel was run out and Glenn Maxwell (9) fell cheaply again, Pant reached his maiden IPL hundred off 56 balls. Earlier opting to bat, Delhi Daredevils posted a challenging 187 for 5 in stipulated 20 overs. The duo helped SRH breeze home with seven balls to spare and nine wickets in hand.

Williamson hit eight fours and two sixes in his 53-ball innings.

Pant reached his half-century off 36 balls and then accelerated further, scoring 79 runs off the last 28 balls he faced at an astounding strike-rate of 282.14.

However, Delhi do have something positive to take back home from their short-lived stint in season 11 of the Indian Premier League that is the consistent performance by its youngsters - Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer.

Pant released the pressure with a hat-trick of boundaries against Siddharth Kaul in the sixth over before doing the same to lead spinner Rashin Khan in the 12th over.

With five overs left in the innings, Delhi stared at some sort of respectability before another miscommunication between the batsmen ended Patel's stay. Pant was shooting the ball all over the ground for boundaries, he was unstoppable.

With Dhawan back among runs, it also means Sunrisers have a left-hander at the top of the order with right-handers Hales, Williamson and Manish Pandey slated around him in the batting order. He hit Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for fours and sixes plenty, smashed Shakib over the fence and hit seamers with such contempt that it seemed he was hell-bent on revenge.
