Pant's ton can't prevent Daredevils IPL KO

Rishabh Pant's stunning century for the Delhi Daredevils proved in vain as IPL table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad cruised to a nine-wicket win that clinches their place in the playoffs and ends Delhi's hopes.

In the last encounter between these two teams, SunRisers Hyderabad outshined Delhi Daredevils and won the match by seven wickets.

Involved in two avoidable run-outs, Pant compensated the miscommunication on the field with a blistering unbeaten 63-ball 128 which contained 15 boundaries and seven sixes, to arrest a careless start from the hosts. Deservedly Williamson, the key to SRH batting all through the season, stuck the winning runs, smacking fellow compatriot Trent Boult's full toss through square for a four.

Brief Scores: Delhi Daredevils 187/5 (Rishabh Pant 128 not out, Harshal Patel 24; Shakib Al Hasan 4/27) lose to Sunrisers Hyderabad 191/1 (Shikhar Dhawan 92 not out, Kane Williamson 83 not out) by 9 wickets.

Dhawan who was in bad touch since he made his comeback scored 92* off 50 with 9 fours are 4 sixes.

Their 50 partnership came off 34 balls, and expanded to a century-stand off 62 balls.

Williamson also moves to second overall on the IPL's leading runscorer list for this season, with his 493 runs coming at an average of 61.62, with six half-centuries to his name. Dhawan scored 33, while Hales contributed with 45.

Latest Update: Rishabh Pant has really played a blinder here, this pitch is not the best for strokeplay but he showed patience and stayed put.

Opting to bat first, Shakib Al Hasan (2-27) accounted for both Delhi openers Jason Roy (11) and Prithwi Shaw (9) off successive balls in the fourth over. Sunrisers Hyderabad have nearly qualified for the playoffs as they are sitting well on the top with 16 points.

With that wicket, the Pant-Patel partnership ended at 55 runs in 37 balls as Delhi summoned Glen Maxwell to join the fray at 98/4. He also became the second youngest to score an IPL hundred.

"I was just trying to see the ball and hit it clean".

Pant, the team's top scorer this season, is also the sixth highest run-grosser this term and a big-scoring effort in the game can make him a genuine contender for the Orange Cap, reserved for the IPL's top scorer. And we have been playing on tough surfaces, so it was nice to go out and execute our batting plans.
