A century from Risabh Pant helped power the Delhi Daredevils to a total of 187 for 5 but Shikhar Dhawan's unbeaten 92 saw the Sunrisers Hyderabad win by nine wickets with seven balls to spare. DD, on the other hand, are nearly out of the contest as even if they win all of their remaining games, they will finish with 14 points provided that they win all games.

The Bangladeshi spinner claimed Roy's wicket right in the next delivery, giving the hosts no room to recover with two wickets for 21 runs with both Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy dismissed at 9 and 11 runs respectively to give way for skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant. His tussle with SRH fast bowler Siddarth Kaul, who has recently found a berth in India's limited-overs squad to England, will pose an interesting battle.

Williamson and Indian worldwide Shikhar Dhawan, who made 92 not out, put on 176 for the second wicket.

Alex Hales smashed a couple of boundaries, which kick-started the run-chase for the Sunrisers. In a fearless knock of 128 which featured a stunning 15 fours and seven sixes, the Delhi Daredevils wicketkeeper toyed at will with arguably the best bowling attack in this season. "The way the guys have responded under pressure has been outstanding and we will look to continue doing the same in the latter half of the tournament as well", Williamson told CNN-News 18.

And Pant was involved in a disgusting mix-up that resulted in skipper Shreyas Iyer (3) getting run-out going for a non-existent single. Prior to this century, he has also scored 3 half centuries in the current season. Two of those scoops were in the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar who proved to be the most expensive bowler for Hyderabad, leaking 51 runs in four overs.

Just the fact that, despite some speedbumps, a second season is still happening and is now in production is great news. The season one focused on Shadow Moon, who meets a unusual man named Mr.


Hyderabad's brilliant performance came after Pant's maiden T20 hundred, an epic 128 not out off 63 balls which were not enough to arrest his team's slide.

Rishabh Pant is only 20 years old but is already showing signs of his vast talent and rapid development with yet another special performance.

The keeper-batsman then took charge of proceedings as he put on 55 runs off 38 balls for the fourth wicket with Harshal Patel (24).

At 20 years and 218 days, he became the second youngest Indian batsman after Manish Pandey (in 2009) to score an IPL century. After the run-outs, I wanted to take responsibility for the team.
