IPL 2018: Hyderabad beat Delhi, moves closer to playoffs

Delhi batted first and riding on Prithvi Shaw's 65 reached at 163 runs after 20 overs. From 95 for 1, Delhi slumped to 134 for 5 in the space of 6.4 overs. Get 9 runs off Rashid Khan's first over.

In pursuit of 164 on Saturday (May 5), Alex Hales and a scratchy Shikhar Dhawan gave SRH the ideal start with 61 from the Powerplay overs. In the bowling unit, pacer Trent Boult has performed well in death overs, claiming 13 wickets from nine games. Southee then conceded 30 runs from his three overs, with no wickets.

Alex Hales used power, nifty footwork and cricket smarts while at the crease to score 45. Both of them have looked off colour and the team would want their big guns to fire.

Prior to Saturday, Prithvi Shaw was out to legspinners twice in 14 deliveries.

After Over 5: DD - 40 runs with the loss of 1 wicket. Rashid Khan picked up two wickets for Hyderabad while Amit Mishra bagged 2 wickets for Delhi.

McIlroy back on form at Quail Hollow
Nick Watney signed for a 66 to be eight under and he will be in the final group for the first time in almost four years. They were as much Tiger Woods' brand as Nike, or Monster Energy, or any other sponsor this week at Quail Hollow.


Iyer got out for 44 runs off 36 deliveries while Rishabh Pant played an inning of 18 (19). The two plundered 27 runs as the Englishman hit three sixes while the left-hander struck one six in that eventful over. It was unplayable delivery as Hales looked in utter disbelief. He was castled by the leg-spinner Amit Mishra in the eleventh over. However, Hales and Dhawan took on inexperienced Avesh Khan to up the ante.

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. It says a lot about the quality of their bowlers and their strength in depth in that regard that despite missing Bhuvneshar Kumar - now India's best seam bowler- for four of their eight games so far they've managed to restrict sides time and time again to below-par scores or successfully defended their own par totals.

Kane Williamson led SRH has impressed everyone with their performance this season winning seven of nine games played so far. The leg spinner produced peach of a delivery to dismiss Alex Hales for 45 runs. Yet, Vijay Shankar's 23-run cameo took them to a competitive score with 17 runs being taken off Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 20th over, who returned from injury. The most fruitful over was the final one in the Powerplay where Shaw literally got stuck into Siddarth Kaul, hitting him for a six and three boundaries. Bhuvneshwar finished with figures of 4-0-33-0.

Khan (4-0-23-2) showed fine reflexes in his follow through while running out Naman Ojha and then four balls later he removed the risky Rishab Pant (lbw), who went for a review but it was in vain.
