IPL: Hyderabad elect to bat against Delhi

IPL: Hyderabad elect to bat against Delhi

Earlier, IPL leaders Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by four wickets for their fourth win in five matches. With a flurry of boundaries, Sanju Samson (42) and Karun Nair (33) helped Delhi cross the 50-run mark in the powerplay.

Vohra hammered another six in the following over of medium pacer Siddharth Kaul as he took his side just 16 runs away at the end of 18th over.

"I'm used to it and I believed in myself", Man of the Match Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

The next delivery, Rishabh Pant was out for a first-ball duck as Delhi were reduced to 86 for 3 with Warner taking an easy catch. However, they might consider bringing back Ashish Nehra, whom they had replaced with Barinder Sran, who failed to pick up any wicket after being given a chance in the last match. But their task got more hard as Samson got out in the 14th over after a strategic time out as he failed to read a slower delivery off Mohammed Siraj to hit straight to the hands of Moises Henriques. Moises Henriques was serviceable for Hyderabad, contributing an unbeaten 12 from six balls before sending three overs down at just over 10-a-piece, with Pat Cummins faring little better, giving up 37 runs from his allotted overs and being unrequired with the bat.

Kane Williamson, playing his first match of the season, made an imperious 89 off 51 balls and propelled Sunrisers Hyderabad to their fourth win in four home matches. Rashid Khan as acquitted himself well and though he's just five matches old in this tournament, he has shown remarkable equanimity in pressure situations and is second after Bhuvneshwar in bowling charts with nine wickets.

Yusuf hit six fours and two sixes before he top-edged Chris Morris' short delivery.

Siraj, who also took the wicket of Billings, returned figures of 2-39. When17 April 2017, 2000 Hrs IST Where Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad The ProtagonistsThe outcome of this match will depend to a huge extent on which of the two Aussies - David Warner or Glenn Maxwell - does more damage with the bat. The way they started with the new balls was tremendous. Morris was the pick of the Delhi bowlers, with four wickets for 26 from his four overs while all the other bowlers went wicketless and conceded over eight runs an over. His opening partner Shikhar Dhawan too is in decent form, scoring 135 runs. Morris then stepped it up, he got Dhawan and Yuvraj of consecutive balls and was on a hat-trick, well that did not happen, thanks to Deepak Hooda.

Yet Warner was dropped over the rope for six at long-off by Eoin Morgan and Rashid Khan finished the innings with a maximum in a final over that would prove crucial.
