Dhawan blasts Sunrisers past Daredevils

IPL 2018 Live DD vs SRH

Harshal Patel was the next batsmen in. While Pant hit 22 boundaries - the joint fourth highest by a batsman in an IPL innings - the other Daredevils batsmen could manage only six boundaries. Two of those scoops were in the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar who proved to be the most expensive bowler for Sunrisers, leaking 51 runs in four overs. Siddharth Kaul, who has been extremely economical this IPL season, went for 48 runs in four overs.

Is momentum even a thing? But despite this what led to Delhi's undoing was the lack of contributions from its foreign players like Glenn Maxwell with the bat; Liam Plunkett and Trent Boult with the ball. He was not helped by an elbow injury either, but according to SRH coach Tom Moody, there was a feeling in the camp that sooner or later Dhawan was going to hurt someone.

The bowling is lethal and can defend any total, as it has shown time and again this season.

Earlier, though, it looked like SRH had a battle on its hands as Pant found the ideal stage to showcase himself.

The wicket seemed to have eased out as the game progressed with the ball coming onto the bat easily, and the dew assisting the chasing side. Never before was Bhuvaneshwar hit for 26 runs in five balls. SRH, though, went about the chase in clinical fashion.

SRH coach Tom Moody had insisted that "players like Shikhar Dhawan don't just disappear off the face of Earth" on the eve of the game and the Delhi star chose the flawless setting to roar back into form after a disappointing outing in the IPL so far. "The way the guys have responded under pressure has been outstanding and we will look to continue doing the same in the latter half of the tournament as well", Williamson told CNN-News 18.

Dhawan got man of the match for his unbeaten 92 off 50 balls while Williamson finished on 83 off 53 balls, the innings highlighted by his trademark working the ball into the gaps as well as a couple of sixes.

Chasing a formidable total of 187, SRH raced to target for the loss of just one wicket.

The Delhi swashbuckling left-handed batsman Rishabh Pant has announced his arrival on the big stage. But the results never came in their favor as they have won just three out their 10 matches. It was the also highest individual score for an Indian batsman in IPL history, eclipsing Murali Vijay's 127 (for Chennai Super Kings) in 2010.
