IPL 2021, DC vs SRH: Delhi secures comfortable 8-wicket win over Hyderabad, here are the records scripted
The IPL 2021 resumption in the UAE has impressed all, while Delhi Capitals has acquired a comfortable eight-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, as some records were scripted in the process.
It turned out to be a one-sided encounter, as Delhi Capitals (DC) achieved a comfortable eight-wicket win over former champion Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 33 of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday. Post the win, there were some exciting records scripted that we take a look.
David Warner registers an unwanted
Warner's rough patch continued as he fell for an unfortunate duck tonight. Consequently, it was the first time since IPL 2016 that he had been dismissed for the same in the tournament.
Ravichandran Ashwin does a first since 2015
Ashwin did an unwanted as he bowled a front-foot no-ball, while it was the first time since IPL 2015 final that he had done so in the tournament.
Shikhar Dhawan enters a special list
Dhawan scored his 400th run of the season. He became only the third player to do so on six consecutive seasons after Suresh Raina (2008-14) and David Warner (2013-20).
SRH joins an unpopular list
It was SRH's seventh loss in the opening eight games. As a result, it has become the fifth team to do so after Kolkata Knight Riders (2009), Punjab Kings (2010), Delhi Capitals (2013), Royal Challengers Bangalore (2019).
Winning the toss, SRH elected to bat, as it turned out to be a wrong decision, with DC bowlers, especially pacer Kagiso Rabada's three-for, restricting the side to 134/9. In reply, Dhawan (42) and Iyer (47) helped DC chase the total down by eight wickets, with 13 balls to spare.
Brief scores: SRH 134/9 in 20 overs (Samad- 28; Rabada- 3/37) lost to DC 139/2 in 18.5 overs (Dhawan- 42, Iyer- 47; Rashid- 1/26) by eight wickets.
