SRH continued their great run in IPL 2018 on Thursday as they thrashed DD to stay atop the table.

IPL 2018 mid-season analysis - Are SunRisers Hyderabad the team to beat this year?

Talking about the only match of the day, Shikhar Dhawan returned to form in the hour of need as Hyderabad ended Delhi's play-off hopes with a thumping nine-wicket win.

Pant's 128* is the 5th highest individual score in the IPL and the highest for Delhi Daredevils surpassing Virender Sehwag's 119 against DC in the 2011 edition.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Alex Hales, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (capt), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma.

The experienced duo was a delight to watch as it completed the chase with utmost calm.

That was the 50th hundred in the history of the IPL.

Tonight, it is the game between the team who has been on the top and the team who is right at the bottom.

They say "home is where the heart is" and a return to the capital meant a return to form for Shikhar Dhawan. But they have surprised everyone as they have defended totals like 118 and 132, that too very apprehensively.

Earlier, Pant helped the Daredevils overcome a poor start to reach an imposing total. Pant who was visibly furious with himself, then took charge of proceedings, restricting his strike partner Glenn Maxwell to a mere spectator as he tore into the best bowling attack of the IPL.


# DD have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Courtesy a sublime 65 from the highly-talented Prithvi Shaw, Delhi put up a challenging 163 against Sunrisers in their away game at Hyderabad on May 5.

Shaw mistimed a pull off a short ball and Dhawan latched on to it at cover. The highlight of his spell was the back-to-back dismissals of both the Delhi openers in the fourth over of the innings.

# In the sixth over Pant smashed Siddharth Kaul for three boundaries!

Delhi had crawled to 52 for three in 10 overs but Pant's power hitting quickly changed the course of the game.

Even the lefthander was in his revolutionary best as he had the scoop shot third person perhaps not once but thrice.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a nightmare spell today as he conceded 51 runs off his four overs for a wicket.

Come Thursday, it will be interesting to see if Delhi's batsmen can pass the stern test from the Sunrisers bowlers and halt their winning run. Captain Kane Williamson gave him side good support and scored 83 runs in 53 balls with eight fours and two sixes.

More than the score card, it is the kind of bowlers he took to the cleaners.

Prithvi Shaw has been getting Delhi Daredevils off to some electric starts in the recent matches.
