IPL: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeat Delhi Daredevils by 7 wickets

Hales made use of the opportunity as he smashed bowlers all over the park. Iyer thought that was a flawless decision because the ball was not turning a lot but praised Amit Mishra for his crucial wickets.

Delhi bowlers, especially Amit Mishra (4-0-19-2), had nearly helped them defend the total which seemed respectable on a track where spinners were getting maximum purchase. Rashid Khan bagged the man of the match title.

DD went with just one spinner in the playing XI while they had five pacers, including all-rounder Vijay Shankar, in the unit on Saturday.

Pathan remained unbeaten on 27 off only 12 balls to take Sunrisers home off the penultimate ball. Yusuf even survived a LBW decision.

With 14 needed of the final over, the responsibility was on Daniel Christian to take DD to victory. Is this the turning point of the match? While big buy Manish Pandey have also disappointed with his performance of 179 runs. In the same over, he also effected the run out of Naman Ojha (1).

WICKET! What a breakthrough for DD.

In last ball of 8 overs Amit Mishra to Hales OUT, AD Hales scored 45 runs in 31balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes. However, Hales and Dhawan took on inexperienced Avesh Khan to up the ante.

A rampaging Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will look to consolidate its position as league leaders when it meets laggards Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, here, on Monday.

Prithvi Shaw 65 runs of 36 balls and skipper Shreyas Iyer 44 runs of 36 balls were the major contributors with the bat as other batsman failed to get going. "At certain point we were really in the game, on top but the momentum changed completely", Iyer said after the match.

Pathan, who survived a dropped catch and later an LBW decision - which he overturned via DRS, lived up to the reputation of being a power hitter ensured SRH cross the line in the death overs. He will look to continue restricting the opposition's run-rate and pick up a few wickets as well.

With two back to back wickets, SRH lost some momentum and that slowed down their chase. DD managed only 68 runs in their last ten overs, and that too was facilitated by a 13-ball, 23-run cameo from Vijay Shankar.

In first ball of sixth over, Shikhar Dhawan smacked the free-hit over deep square leg for a SIX. This could have been the second wicket for Afghanistan spinner. The impressive Shaw raised his 50 off 25 balls. The youngster has finding the fences easily as SRH bowlers have failed to stop the batsman from scoring freely. The Betfair Sportsbook has put up some Batsmen Matchbets and one of those is Williamson against Prithvi Shaw (15/8) and fellow Kiwi Colin Munro (13/8). They don't really need another bowling option but they do need some fireworks at the top of the order. However, they suffered a loss against nearly every other side, a few of them by a huge margin, thus bringing their net run-rate down in the process.

Earlier, Delhi Daredevils own the toss and elected to bat first.
