Hyderabad, April 20: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Delhi Daredevils in a 2017 Indian Premier League clash at the Hyderabad on Wednesday. Notably, Sunrisers Hyderabad had a dominant victory over Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs through their all round performance on the field.
Opting to bat, Hyderabad posted a mammoth total of 191 runs for 4 wickets riding on a 136-run second wicket partnership between New Zealand's Kane Williamson and opener Shikhar Dhawan. Williamson, playing his first game of the season, made 89, while Dhawan scored 70. Moises Henriques (12) and Hooda (9) then completed the proceedings for Hyderabad with both players adding 21 runs in 1.4 overs to set a challenging target.
In reply, the 192-run target proved a little too much as Delhi could only make 176 in the allotted 20 overs despite a half century by Shreyas Iyer and impressive batting by Angelo Mathews, Karun Nair and Sanju Samson. Medium-pacer Mohammed Siraj bagged the maximum of 2 wickets for Hyderabad. Williamson was named a man of the match.
Hyderabad is now second in the 8-team points table with 4 wins in 6 games, while Delhi is fourth with 2 victories in 5 matches. Kolkata Knight Riders are at the top. Today, Kings Eleven Punjab will meet Mumbai Indians at Indore at 8 in the evening.
