Shikhar Dhawa, Kane Williamson ensure Sunrisers Hyderabad victory against Delhi
12 May 2018, 10:07 | Silvia Roy
Sunrisers won by 9 wickets with 7 balls remaining.
Chasing a daunting total of 188, which also happens to be their highest successful run chase, Sunrisers overhauled it in 18.5 overs and lost just one wicket in the course.
SRH coach Tom Moody had insisted that "players like Shikhar Dhawan don't just disappear off the face of Earth" on the eve of the game and the Delhi star chose the flawless setting to roar back into form after a disappointing outing in the IPL so far.
Williamson and Indian worldwide Shikhar Dhawan, who made 92 not out, put on 176 for the second wicket. Then, he turned his back on Harshal Patel, whose cameo provided Daredevils momentum in the first place.
As a result of Pant, Delhi gathered 138 runs in the past ten overs. In that sense, Sunrisers couldn't have complained after having restricted Delhi to 52 for 3 at the halfway stage on a sluggish, two-paced wicket that was assisting the slower bowlers to quite an extent early on.
As Rishabh Pant completed his century in 56 balls, he became the second youngest batsman to score a hundred in the eleven-year history of the IPL.
The next 50 runs came in the next five overs as the Williamson-Dhawan duo got more comfortable on the pitch with each passing minute. The move clearly did not go as per plan as Delhi were struggling at 38-2 at the end of the Powerplay overs with openers Prithvi Shaw (9) and Jason Roy (11) back in the hut.
Pant sent the ball out for another four in the nineteenth over to reach his maiden IPL century after connecting well with a Siddharth Kaul delivery. However, Delhi has been out of the tournament, after they were beaten by Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Home Ground.
Pant, who was involved in two run-outs, hit seven sixes and 15 boundaries in his scintillating knock but was naturally dejected at his team's failure to reach the playoffs.
How Pant occurred about the likes of Shakib, Kaul and Bhuvenshwar Kumar was respectable. He hit two sixes and eight fours.
Earlier, on a sluggish Kotla track, every batsmen barring Pant found run-scoring an arduous challenge on Thursday night. The last over of the innings, by Bhuvneshwar, was belted for two fours and four sixes, the last four overs fetched 59 from his bat alone - the most any batsman has made in this period in IPL history - and Daredevils finished with 135 off the last 10.
