Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets

Iyer thought that was a ideal decision because the ball was not turning a lot but praised Amit Mishra for his crucial wickets. SRH's skipper Kane Williamson smashed the DD's bowler with his bat and scored 32 unbeaten.

Delhi chose to bat first and straight away, opener Prithvi Shaw rocketed away and became their top scorer. They must be blaming those dropped catches and perhaps the decision of playing with just one spinner, which went against them. Sandeep Sharma, who got his hand to the ball just in time, had it deflected to the stumps.

How good are these "kids"? . After opting to bowl and restricting the visiting Delhi Daredevils to 163, SRH chased down the runs off the penultimate ball, winning the match by seven wickets. Shaw timed the ball to perfection, attacking from the onset. Rayudu fell to legspinner Murugan Ashwin's first delivery.

Bowl fuller to Shaw.

Every year one team comes from nowhere to make the Play-Offs by stringing together a run of four or five wins in a row.

The Iyer-Shaw combo added 86 runs for the second wicket, and threatened to pile up a very big score. In his final over he turned the tide with two wickets - including the one of Rishabh Pant. Rashid Khan won yet another "Man of the Match" award for his magnificent bowling spell.

The return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar had strengthened the bowling for SRH and Kohli's men should come up with something special to upstage the host's bowling applecart. This victory also took SRH to top of the table. They tried Kane Williamson, Saha and Ricky Bhui at the top, but none of them could provide what an aggressive opener could.

Hodgson backs Benteke to fire for Palace next season
I signed for another year because I thought we would be in the Premier League, it didn't even enter my head that we wouldn't be. Stoke's 10-year stay in England's top flight will end after they suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday .

The Match will commence at 8:00 PM IST. Hales's attack up front gave Shikhar Dhawan the luxury to settle in after he seemed a tad rusty since he took the hit on the elbow.

DD were going great guns in the first part of the innings and looked all set for a 200-run target. Hales was then on nine runs.

In last ball of tenth over Mishra to Dhawan dismissed, Shikhar Dhawan scored 33 runs for 30 balls in which he hit 2 fours and a single six. The pressure was mounting, but Williamson kept his nerve and played a sedate innings.

Williamson is highly unlikely to match either player in terms of strike rate but 7/4 is an excellent price that he ends up with more runs than either of them.

Delhi are mathematically still in the tournament, but it only gets harder from hereon.

SRH would like to take each game as it comes, the New Zealander said. Their next challenge is against Royal Challengers Bangalore at home on May 7.

Chasing 164 to win, Sunrisers were off to a blazing start as England's Alex Hales (45 off 31 balls) clobbered three fours and sixes each, courtesy a drop by Glenn Maxwell earlier in the innings.
