Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) registered a thumping win, as they defeated the fiery Delhi Capitals (DC) by 88 runs in Dubai. While DC lose their third consecutive match, after a fiery start to the tournament, we have a look at the talking points from the game.
Wridhhiman Saha faith pays back
Wridhhiman Saha, who played as a replacement to Jonny Bairstow, proved his worth. He smashed 87 runs off just 45 balls. He smashed two sixes and 12 fours and had a whopping strike-rate of 193.
Birthday Boy strikes
SRH skipper David Warner, who partnered a 107-run partnership with Saha, was also in a fiery form. He hit 66 runs from 34 ball,s where he struck two sixes and eight fours.
David Warner bowling
Owing to Vijay Shankar's hamstring injury during SRH bowling, skipper David Warner bowled a leftover delivery to Rishabh Pant, where he leaked two runs. Warner bowled for the first time in the IPL history and started with a wide.
SRH star bowler, Rashid Khan, bowled 17 dot balls in his four-over spell. He conceded just seven runs and took three wickets. He was super-economical with the ball, as he had an economy of only 1.8.
DC's poor day at the field
Even though the toss favoured the Shreyas Iyer-led DC, the match didn't. They were quite expensive with the ball, leaking 219 runs on a slow pitch in Dubai. Also, while chasing, the whole DC, as a unit, collapsed for mere 131, as they faced the ferocious SRH bowlers.
