Updated - May 10, 2018 11:29 pm
The Sunrisers Hyderabad seem to be on a merry roll. They thumped the Delhi Daredevils in their most recent encounter in Delhi. With the win, they have confirmed their slot in the playoffs. Moreover, they have ended the hopes of the Delhi Daredevils in the season. Coming in to the game, the visitors eyed total domination after a string of very good performances.
There were talks about their chasing ability, and by chasing down 187 for the win in the game, they have managed to answer all critics. Earlier in the game, the Delhi Daredevils opted to bat first. The DD innings was only about one batsman – Rishabh Pant. The hard-hitting youngster became the second youngest centurion in the IPL.
Pant’s unbeaten 128 helped the Daredevils post 187/5 on the board. In the run chase, the Sunrisers Hyderabad lost Alex Hales early. But that did not hamper their spirits. Much to their delight, Shikhar Dhawan came back to form
Here are the player ratings for the match:
Alex Hales – 2/10
Alex Hales had a decent start to his innings in the match. He, however, failed to get going and perished in the second over. He scored 14 off the 10 balls that he faced during his stay at the crease. The Englishman would hope for better outings in the days to come.
Shikhar Dhawan – 9.5/10
Shikhar Dhawan was one of the chief architects of the run chase for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Coming in to the game, he was under some serious pressure to perform. But just as the SRH coach Tom Moody had promised, Shikhar delivered. Shikhar scored an unbeaten 92 off 50 deliveries with 9 fours and 4 sixes to his name.
Kane Williamson – 9.5/10
Kane Williamson has been the most successful batsman for the Sunrisers this season. The SRH skipper extended his good run of form in this match as well. Batting with Shikhar Dhawan, he ensured that his side was over the line on the day. Williamson remained unbeaten on 80 off 53 deliveries with 7 fours and 2 sixes.
Manish Pandey – Not Assigned
Manish Pandey did not get a chance to bat in the game. The SRH top order did all the scoring for them in the run chase.
Shakib Al Hasan – 9/10
Shakib Al Hasan was the pick of the bowlers for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the match. In the fourth over of the Delhi Daredevils innings, Shakib dismissed Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy on consecutive deliveries. He finished with figures of 2/27 to his name in the match.
Yusuf Pathan – Not Assigned
The services of hard hitting batsman Yusuf Pathan were largely not needed in the match. Pathan did not get a chance to bat or bowl.
Sreevats Goswami – 4/10
Sreevats Goswami is a long lost name in the Indian cricket circle. The Bengal keeper got his chance in the match as Wriddhiman Saha was injured. Goswami had a decent time behind the stumps as he took a catch and assisted in two runouts. He did not get a chance to bat.
Rashid Khan – 2/10
Much like all the other SRH bowlers, their premier bowler Rashid Khan was also taken away for runs in the game. Rishabh Pant showed no mercy on his. Rashid failed to pick up a wicket in the game and that hurt the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the four overs that he bowled, he conceded 35 runs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 2/10
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is hailed as the best bowler of the SRH lineup. But the veteran Indian pacer was taken to the cleaners by Rishabh Pant in the match. Pant hammered 26 runs in the final over of the innings that was bowled by Bhuvi. Bhuvneshwar finished with 1/51 to his name – his second worst figures in the IPL history.
Siddarth Kaul – 2/10
Siddarth Kaul had been one of the top performers for the Sunrisers Hyderabad this season. But in this particular game, he had a horrid time to endure. Kaul was taken away for 48 runs in the four overs that he bowled. He failed to pick up a wicket either.
Sandeep Sharma – 8/10
Sandeep Sharma retained his place in the side for this game as well. The seam bowler continued his impressive run in the tournament. Although he failed to take any wickets, he finished as the most economical bowler for SRH in the game. He conceded 24 runs in the four overs that he bowled.
