Shreyas Iyer used 7 bowling options but all the bowlers conceded at above 8 runs per over as Sunrisers chased down the total in 18.5 overs.

Delhi got off to a bad start as they lost both the openers Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy off consecutive deliveries in the 4th over.

We all know that Delhi youngster Rishabh Pant is very talented and on Thursday he proved his class with a monstrous knock of 128 off 63 balls, hitting seven sixes and all this while remaining unbeaten. They continued their utter and total dominance on the tournament with a convincing victory against the Delhi Daredevils at the Ferozshah Kotla.

It was the bowling that had won Sunrisers Hyderabad a majority of their games in the Indian Premier League 2018.

Pant released the pressure with a hat-trick of boundaries against Siddharth Kaul in the sixth over before doing the same to lead spinner Rashin Khan in the 12th over.

Delhi had earlier ridden on Rishabh Pant's maiden IPL century to recover from a jittery start and post a commanding 187 for 5. Pant, who was involved in two run-outs, hit seven sixes and 15 boundaries in his scintillating knock but was naturally dejected at his team's failure to reach the playoffs.


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).

"Delhi was an opportunity for us to express ourselves as a batting group and both Kane (Williamson) and Shikhar (Dhawan) did it in great style", Moody added.

Pant hit some unorthodox lap shot in the last over bowled by India's pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar, scooping the ball over third-man for couple of sixers. The first ball of his final over, the 17th of the innings, was a wrong'un drifting away from length, right into Pant's weak zone. Batting with clear anger and aggression, the left-handed youngster took apart everything in his wake as no Sunrisers bowler was spared.

Rishabh Pant's century is the 50th century in IPL history.

67 Pant's runs off 23 balls in the death overs - the second highest by any batsman in an IPL innings. Alex Hales goes for 14 runs in the second over. However, after losing the first wicket, SRH player Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson played an unbeaten partnership and of 102 runs in 102 balls.
