PREVIEW: able-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be aiming to cement their play-off berth when they take on a struggling Delhi Daredevils (DD) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, here on Saturday.
Daredevils paid a heavy price when Glenn Maxwell dropped Hales (on nine) when the latter pulled straight to him off pacer Avesh Khan in the second over of the innings. With their biggest chase this season, SRH catapulted themselves back to the top of the table with a seven-wicket victory. With a slight backfoot trigger towards leg-stump, the Mumbaikar makes room and plays his Hyderabadots all around the wicket.
In the end, Yusuf Pathan (unbeaten 27) smashed two fours and sixes each, as the 2016 champions jumped back to the numero uno spot at the table, further enhancing their chances to earn a spot to the playoffs.
IPL veteran Amit Mishra, who has bowled many a match-winning spells in Hyderabad, bowled another superb one on Saturday night - 4-0-19-2 - that nearly single-handedly gave his team the momentum back.
In Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Rishab Pant, Delhi have the capability to mince match-winning runs, which is lacking in the Hyderabad's side. The former looked absolutely risky as he punished short balls for boundaries.
