IPL 2018: Match 42 DD vs SRH Match Highlights

IPL 2018: Match 42 DD vs SRH Match Highlights

Sunrisers, who lead the table with 18 points from 11 games, showed tonight that they could not just defend small totals but also chase down stiff targets.

Reflecting on their plan against Pant, the 24-year-old said revealed that they had made a decision to bowl him outside the off-stump, but he managed to notch runs even on those deliveries.

Williamson hit eight fours and two sixes in his 53-ball innings, while his teammate Shikhar Dhawan finished 92 not out in the nine-wicket win.

Maxwell (9) was a mere spectator to the southpaw's fireworks, who muscled pacer Siddharth Kaul's full toss to the deep midwicket boundary to bring up his maiden IPL ton in mere 56 balls.

However eventually, Pant's sublime side prevailed over his ridiculous side and DD were able to reach a very competitive total of 187/5.

Rishabh Pant smacked a sizzling century as Delhi Dardevils (DD) finished at 187-5 after electing to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match will be held at MCA stadium, Maharashtra since the Chennai team are not permitted to play in Tamil Nadu for this season.

"Delhi was an opportunity for us to express ourselves as a batting group and both Kane (Williamson) and Shikhar (Dhawan) did it in great style", Moody added. After a 38-ball 116 at the same ground four months back, this was another Pant special. Even the best in the business like Rashid Khan (4-35-0) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-51-1) bore his brunt. Pant's late ramp over short third man was just one part of his batting rejuvenation that has been one of the bright sparks in another disappointing campaign for Daredevils.

Pant was savage on the IPL's best death bowler, plundering 43 runs off 11 Kumar deliveries, including a one-handed six in the final over of the innings.

Rishabh Pant's century is the 50th century in IPL history.

The visitors overcame the early loss of opener Alex Hales (14) as the duo od Dhawan-Williamson demoralised bottom-placed Delhi's spirited effort midway into the match. Not only is his side sitting pretty atop the IPL ladder with a 9-2 record, but he's also the tournament's second-leading run-scorer after peeling off his second consecutive fifty and sixth for the tournament; his 493 runs coming at a whopping average of 61.6 per outing.
