IPL: Rishabh Pant Powers Delhi to Challenging Total Against Hyderabad

Williamson, bowlers star in thrilling five-run win

Shakib Al Hasan of Sunrisers picked up two wickets. Their tally of 8 wins at this stage is their best after the first ten games in their history of the cash-rich league. Delhi were tottering at 43/3 and also going at less than six runs per over and again the change in the opening partnership (Jason Roy replacing Colin Munro) didn't help the matters much and the continuing failure of the top order has been one of the reasons for Delhi's awful season.

He dominated the 63-run with Glenn Maxwell with 53 and during the course of his innings became the first player this season to reach the 500-run mark. It was surprising to see that on a wicket where Shaw, Roy and Iyer seemed to struggle, there was nothing bothering Patel who looked in great control during his innings of 24 that also saw him hit two sixes. Things are heating up and the pressure in on Pant again. Just the start the visitors needed as Delhi have lost two big wickets in the form on Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw.

Delhi however, were completely outclassed in the second innings as SRH, led by Shikhar Dhawan (92*) and Kane Williamson (83*), reached the target with 7 balls to spare.

Having won eight of the 10 matches (16 points), the 2016 champions have been known for defending low totals, thanks to their strong bowling attack.

As for Delhi, they sit at the bottom of the table and go up against the Sunrisers knowing that they will be out of the competition with a loss.

The attacks against Melania are especially weird , since she does not make political statements or inflammatory remarks. It also marks a turning point for this first lady, who has remained mostly silent in this administration.

Delhi immediately invited more trouble for themselves after skipper Iyer (3) was caught short of the non-striker's end by a mile, thanks to his bad miscommunication with Pant for the second time this season. In this season, Pant has made 521 runs in 11 matches so far. Meanwhile Ricky Ponting's men will be playing simply for pride when they face Royal Challengers Bangalore at home on Saturday. He even scored runs on good deliveries. After cruising into the semi-finals of the inaugural edition, DD had decent runs in the subsequent seasons as well.

Delhi Dardevils have won the toss and made a decision to bat.

Delhi's imposing total was built around a superb unbeaten 128 from Rishabh Pant.

Over the 10 matches played between these sides the Sunrisers have the upper hand with six wins.
