Kane- Shikhar Rock SRH wins by 9 wickets

Williamson, bowlers star in thrilling five-run win

IPL 2018 Preview: Down and almost out Delhi Daredevils face relentless Sunrisers Hyderabad test

Hyderabad's Shakib Al Hasan picked up two wickets giving away 27 runs.

Then how did Delhi finish with 187 on the board? It was fearless, dynamic and ornated with some outrageous shots.

70 Runs scored by Pant off Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan, off only 24 balls.

The duo shared a balanced partnership of 176 runs off 102 balls with Dhawam tallying 92 off 50 balls and Williamson, 83 off 53 balls.

Delhi were in serious trouble after losing their openers and Iyer early. Ridiculous, because he was responsible for two run-outs in the Delhi innings. At the halfway stage, Delhi looked like they would struggle to even get to 140.

Pant could not become the youngest batsman to score a century in the IPL but during this innings against Hyderabad, he becomes the youngest batsman to complete 1000 runs in IPL. He reserved special treatment for Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the very last over, ending the innings with back-to-back four's and three consecutive sixes. SRH are also on a winning run of 5 successive games, their best in any season of the IPL. Today they will need an uphill effort to get to the 1088-run target.

Maxwell (9) was a mere spectator to the southpaw's fireworks, who muscled pacer Siddharth Kaul's full toss to the deep midwicket boundary to bring up his maiden IPL ton in mere 56 balls.

They have looked a better unit ever since Iyer took over the captaincy from Gautam Gambhir but small mistakes at key moments have proved fatal for them. He was not helped by an elbow injury either, but according to SRH coach Tom Moody, there was a feeling in the camp that sooner or later Dhawan was going to hurt someone.

SRH has been fantastic with their bowling this season but their batting hasn't clicked as of yet.

On the other hand, SRH is at the top of the table.

The wicket seemed to have eased out as the game progressed with the ball coming onto the bat easily, and the dew assisting the chasing side.

The Kiwi batsman has scored 410 runs so far, with five fifties to his name. SRH, though, went about the chase in clinical fashion.

Williamson and Dhawan seemed to be having quite a stroll in the park as they faced no compilations in keeping the run-rate above the required margin across all overs.

It was his sixth half century and took his tournament tally to 493. As a result, not once did Sunrisers find themselves playing catch-up.

After the fall of the two early wickets, Delhi's hopes rested on Rishab Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer. Even if they win this match, it's not sure whether they will qualify or not.

McIlroy 'ready' to win the Players Championship
He's so close to Johnson now that he can miss the cut and still get to No 1. "That's what I'm looking forward to here". Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the golf course, but McIlroy returned anyway in 2012, missing the cut again.

The visitors overcame the challenging chase with visible ease to remain at the top of the table with an extension in their lead over second placed Chennai Super Kings.
