  • IPL 2018 Sourav Ganguly lauds Rishabh Pant says his time will come

Delhi Daredevils chose to bat first after winning the toss in the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in Delhi, thanks to Rishabh Pant's 128, they scored 187 runs in 20 overs and set 188 for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In complete contrast, the DareDevils put up a challenging 163 against Sunrisers in their away game in Hyderabad earlier this month. Risabh Pant scored unbeaten 128 runs off just 63 balls that included 7 sixes and 15 fours against a tough bowling line-up.

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. Despite leaking runs, they chased down their highest total this season that too with 9 wickets in the bag to leave a huge footprint on the tournament. Shaw, Pant, and Iyer are all hitting the ball sweetly and will be key batsmen against SRH's attack.

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

The fate of Delhi Daredevils has become unclear as just a few matches are left until the playoffs.

Languishing at the bottom of the table with three wins from 10 games, the Shreyas Iyer-led team will have to win tomorrow to have any chance of progressing further in the tournament.

Rishabh Pant then took the matter into his own hands and played one of the best innings in the history of IPL. Such was the ferocity of Pant's blitz that a premium bowler like Bhuvneshwar finished with figures of 4-0-53-1. His 410 runs at an average of 51.25 have been crucial and the Hyderabad franchise must wrap him in cotton wool. Soon after both batsmen Harshal Patel and Pant had settled, Patel was run out for 24 runs.

The table-toppers struck early in the power play as Shakib Al Hasan removed openers Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw. Sunrisers' brilliant performance came after Pant's maiden IPL hundred, an innings having a ideal blend of a high-quality and innovative strokeplay, which were not enough to arrest his team's slide.

Pant, however continued his onslaught as he launched Shakib for a massive six to bring up his half century in 36 balls even as the out-of-form Glenn Maxwell (9) remained a mere spectator to the southpaw's fireworks.

I've described Kane Williamson in glowing terms and the 5/2 favourite tag here is the sensible play. The inclusion of Alex Hales has rejuvenated the batting with his fiery starts at the top. With the help of Pant's heroics, DD scored 135 in the last 10 overs- with 26 runs coming of the 20 over itself.
