First Innings: DC vs SRH
David Warner was the first one to feel Nortje’s wrath as he was dismissed for a third-ball duck as a leading edge ballooned over point to Axar Patel. There was no respite at the opposite end as Rabada too was relentless in his hostility. Digging it in short to Wriddhiman Saha, the wicketkeeper-batter was late on the pull and skied a catch to Dhawan for the second wicket in the Powerplay.
Rabada was then brought back in the 11th over. He’d put himself on a hat-trick as he claimed a skier tracking back behind the non-striker to dismiss Manish Pandey. That came two balls after Kane Williamsson had driven Axar loosely to extra cover. Nortje got back into action in the 13th over to zing Kedar Jadhav in the pads with a 147 kph thunderbolt. Two run-outs in the final over capped a sorry display by Sunrisers. SRH were out done at 135.
Second Innings: DC vs SRH
Capitals were pretty much out of trouble after Shaw’s dismissal during the power play. Dhawan struck six fours and a six during his 42 and in the process achieved two milestones. With Dhawan’s very first run of the day he broke a deadlock with KL Rahul to move back atop the seasons run aggregate charts. Second, he passed 400 runs in a season for the eighth time in his IPL career.
Dhawan fell caught on the boundary trying to slog sweep Rashid Khan over square leg. Pant took his time initially to get set, scoring just 9 off his first 11 balls. But a pull over square leg for six off Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 16th finally got him unstuck. Iyer was content to knock singles around with the required run rate well under control. Iyer flexed his muscle after some time to give DC the final victory blow.
Delhi Capitals 139/2 (Shreyas Iyer 47*, Shikhar Dhawan 42; Rashid Khan 1/26) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad 134/9 (Abdul Samad 28, Rashid Khan 22; Kagiso Rabada 3/37) by eight wickets
