Sunrisers Hyderabad became the first team to qualify for this year’s playoffs in the Indian Premier League. They continued their utter and total dominance on the tournament with a convincing victory against the Delhi Daredevils at the Ferozshah Kotla. 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. Having come good with the bowl in their previous few matches, their batting might on Thursday has sent shivers down the spines of the remaining 7 wickets who will be left scratching their heads on how to defeat this SRH side.
Before we get to the DD vs SRH match highlights, we would like to commend youngster Rishabh Pant on his amazing innings. The recent call to the Indian national side seemed to have done a world of good to his confidence as he announced himself on the world stage by scoring big once again for his side. With his team in trouble after losing three early wickets, Pant scored one of the finest innings this IPL has seen on his way to becoming the first Indian to notch up a century this season. Bullying SRH’s bowlers on a relatively slow pitch, Pant took the attack to Hyderabad’s fabled bowling line-up. Such was the class of his innings that he took one of India’s best bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to the cleaners in the last over, scoring 26 off him to take Delhi to an extremely good score. He walked away not out on 128 off 63 balls with 15 fours and 7 sixes to take home the stylish player of the day and maximum sixes award.

Apart from Pant’s exploits, Delhi failed as a batting unit. Such was the dismal state of their batting that Patel was the next highest scorer with 24. Despite this many were of the opinion that Pant who had run-out two of his team-mates had done enough for his side to see them win their fourth match of the tournament.
SRH are no walk-overs though. Extremely sensible batting by Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan guided them to a 9 wicket win to take them to 18 points.
