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.
