IPL 2018: Daredevils lose thriller to Sunrisers to let it slip

IPL 2018: Daredevils lose thriller to Sunrisers to let it slip

On Saturday, Delhi Daredevils' new skipper Shreyas Iyer chose to defy the trend against SunRisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Daredevils opener Prithvi Shaw had struck 65 as the visitors set the Sunrisers a challenging 164 to win, but the hosts eased home in the end with captain Williamson ending unbeaten on for 32.

During the chase, Englishman Hales (45 off 31 deliveries) and Dhawan (33 off 30) provided 76 runs from nine overs for the opening wicket to set the ideal base for the chase.

Alex Hales continued his good run in the tournament.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be desperate for a win as they look to avoid getting themselves out of the playoffs contention and delay the inevitable for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). They have six points, the same as three other teams in the bottom half of the table.

Iyer himself scored 44 off 36 deliveries and his innings along with Prithvi Shaw's 36-ball 65 propelled DD to the defendable total. Hales was out for 45 while Dhawan made 33 but the hosts slowed down after the dismissals of Dhawan and Hales. The second wicket realised 86 runs off 51 balls. And, in realizing 76 for the first wicket, the duo ensured it was the Sunrisers' best opening partnership in five matches here in this edition of IPL. Dhawan scored 33 off just 30 balls with 2 fours and a six to his name. Pandey went off 21 (17).

A McCullum blitz has been long due and he too would be desperate to convert his starts into a big score.

While Williamson is the batting mainstay, SRH would hope its other batsmen, including Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan, also deliver in the remaining games.

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.

Khan (4-0-23-2) showed fine reflexes in his follow through while running out Naman Ojha and then four balls later he removed the unsafe Rishab Pant (lbw), who went for a review but it was in vain. Spinner Rashid Khan, pacers Siddharth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma, and spin all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, have been very effective.

Many wondered that it was not right to play Sandeep along with Bhuvneshwar since both of them have similar bowling styles.

An excellent over from Amit Mishra as he finished with figures of 2/19. He conceded 35 runs in the four overs that he bowled.
