Rishabh Pant's valiant century went in vain as SunRisers Hyderabad made light work of Delhi Daredevils' challenging 187/5 to romp home by nine wickets and consolidate their stay at the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table. The visitors overcame the early loss of opener Alex Hales (14) as the other opener Shikhar Dhawan (92 not out off 50 balls) and skipper Kane Williamson (83 not out off 53 balls) stitched together a 176-run second stand to demoralise bottom-placed Delhi's spirited effort midway into the match. With the loss, Delhi's hopes of reaching the play-off are up in the smoke and can now only play the party spoilers in the cash-rich tournament. (Scorecard)

Returning to his home ground, Dhawan started the chase by slamming pacer Harshal Patel for a boundary through point even as Williamson continued his glorious run with the willow this season. The Delhi bowlers started losing the plot right after the powerplay when the right-left duo of Williamson and Dhawan propelled the SunRisers to 51/1 before racing to 91/1 midway into the innings. After this match, Delhi Daredevils have been eliminated from the tournament.

Hyderabad, with this win, become the first team to book themselves a berth into the playoffs, while in contrast, Delhi crash out. Different fortunes for two good teams. Anyway, we continue on with the action. On the 11th of May, Chennai go on the road and take on Rajasthan in the city of Jaipur. The action begins at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Join in for that. Goodbye!

Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Match for this game. It could be argued that Rishabh Pant deserves it, but Dhawan's calm, yet aggressive unbeaten 92 off 50 got his team over the line and into the playoffs.

What was so special about this partnership from Dhawan and Williamson was how they kept rotating the strike. The boundaries came, yes, but the constant rotation disallowed the Delhi bowlers to settle, which put pressure on the fielders and the runs started to flow rather easily with each passing over. A true batting masterclass from a talented batting pair. A mention to young Pant. Wins and losses are important, but sometimes you have to credit a great knock when you see it, no matter who you support. He'll feel hard done, but can take heart from this for sure.

Kane Williamson wanted his team to show why they are at the top of the table. The bowling had been saving the day till now, but tonight, the batting showed up and did they show up! A 9-wicket victory... are any more words needed? Don't let it fool you, the task wasn't nearly as easy as it looked. Rishabh Pant's stupendous ton in the first innings powered Delhi to 187, but Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson finished things all on their own. The early wicket of Hales didn't faze them at all as they mounted a 176-run stand to get their team over the line with more than an over to spare.

FOUR! And there it is! The winning runs come off the skipper's bat. Rightly so, he's been phenomenal again. Around the wicket, full toss on middle and off, Kane Williamson whips this over mid-wicket with supreme elegance and finishing things off with a boundary. HYDERABAD WIN BY 9 WICKETS!
