Rashid Khan, Jonny Bairstow helps Sunrisers Hyderabad to win over Delhi Capitals by 15 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad recorded their first win of IPL 2020 with the help of Rashid Khan and Jonny Bairstow on Tuesday.
SRH, with good batting from Jonny Bairstow (53), David Warner (45), Williamson (41), kept 162/4 on the board for DC.Later, Rashid Khan-led SRH bowling attack has restricted the strong Delhi Capitals for 147/7.With 3 for 14 in 4 overs, Rashid Khan registered the best figures in IPL and grabbed the Player of the Match award.
Considering the previous big scoring matches, SRH’s 162 was not a big deal for DC, yet the strict bowling from SRH has pushed DC to face their first defeat in the season.
Delhi Capitals started on a very poor note losing Prithvi Shaw in the very first over.Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer tried to get back into the rhythm by adding 40 runs for the second wicket before Rashid Khan removed the skipper for 17.
Rishabh Pant and West Indian power-hitter Shimron Hetmyer tried their best with a quick 42 off just 22 balls.However, Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the breakthrough dismissing Hetmyer after he smashed 2 back to back sixes off Khaleel Ahmed in the 15th.
In the next over, Rashid Khand grabbed Pant’s wicket, and the remaining batsmen couldn’t sustain the pressure, which resulted in the 15 runs shortage for DC.
