Kane- Shikhar Rock SRH wins by 9 wickets

Virat Kohli

Thanks to Pant, Delhi amassed 135 runs in the last 10 overs.

Rishabh Pant smacked a sizzling century as Delhi Dardevils (DD) finished at 187-5 after electing to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

By now, Delhi had lost all hopes of a comeback as the Sunrisers duo handsomely outbatted the efforts of the hosts with seven balls to spare.

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.

Rishabh Pant's magnificent knock of 128* goes in vain as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat the Delhi Daredevils by 9 wickets to qualify for the playoffs with flying colors. That it came against Sunrisers Hyderabad, boasting of the best economy rate in the Powerplay, middle overs and at the death this season, made it even more stunning. And when Shreyas was run out in a mix-up with Pant, Delhi were down to 43-3 in the eighth over. On Thursday (May 10), the batting which came to the fore to help them annihilate Delhi Daredevils by nine wickets, thereby extending their unbeaten streak to six games. Pant completed his century off 56 balls when he hit Kaul for a boundary in the penultimate over.

Delhi got off to a bad start as they lost both the openers Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy off consecutive deliveries in the 4th over. Dhawan scored unbeaten 92 runs that included nine fours and 4 sixes while Kane Williamson hit 83 runs off 53 balls. Going forward, we need to have plans for a player like Rishabh, who is playing really well on a given day.

The 29th over saw Pant dispatching Bhuvneshwar for three consecutive sixes, including a one handed hit that sailed over long-on.

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. Pant's late ramp over short third man was just one part of his batting rejuvenation that has been one of the bright sparks in another disappointing campaign for Daredevils. To Pant's credit, he retrieved the situation with his maiden T20 2018 century, that included 15 fours and seven sixes, including three off the final three deliveries of the innings, bowled by pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
