Sunrisers Hyderabad continued their unbeaten home run after beating the Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs. A brilliant knock of 89 by Kane Williamson and some good death bowling at the end saw SRH pick up the win.
After batting first Sunrisers Hyderabad posted a competitive total of 191/4. However, in reply Delhi could only muster 176/5. Some good bowling at the end helped Hyderabad defend their total. Here is how twitter reacted to their victory.
Chasing 192 for a win, Delhi were in the hunt as they reached 56 for 1 at the end of six powerplay overs with Sanju Samson (42) and Karun Nair (33) going great guns though they lost Sam Billings (13) early on.
But once Samson and Nair were out, Delhi innings lost way and the asking rate piled up. They needed 65 from the final five overs but could only score 49 with the Hyderabad side
bowlers coming up with a fine bowling show at the death overs.
Debutant Mohammed Siraj took two wickets for 39 runs while Siddarth Kaul and Yuvraj Singh grabbed a wicket each.
Excellent under pressure from Siddharth Kaul. Maybe the #Daredevils will change their batting order next time……

Sending Mathews ahead of Chris Morris is like sending Binny ahead of Kohli. #SRHvDD
