Another Run Fest for Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad emerged victorious in the clash against the Delhi Capitals. As the team took the field, it seemed like a game plan to dominate the opposition bowlers right from the outset. Batting first on Delhi's turf, the Sunrisers Hyderabad lost 7 wickets in the designated 20 overs and managed to score 266 runs. Though the start seemed ominous, by the end of the innings, Delhi lost all wickets for 199 runs in 19.1 overs, falling short by 67 runs.

Delhi won the toss but sending Hyderabad to bat appeared to backfire. Opening batters Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma set a record of 125 runs in the first 6 overs. Sharma departed after scoring 46 runs off 12 balls.

Head continued to wield his bat fiercely. Even after losing his partner, he kept on hitting big shots. He finished his innings with 89 runs off 32 balls, including 11 fours and 6 sixes.

Nithish Kumar Reddy, after Sharma's departure, steadied the innings with a 37-run inning off 27 balls, partnering with Shahbaz Ahmed. Ahmed remained unbeaten with 59 runs off 29 balls.

Hyderabad's innings concluded at 266 runs.

In response, Delhi commenced their batting innings with a shaky start. Prithvi Shaw returned scoring only 16 runs off 5 balls, while David Warner failed to surpass a single run. However, another Australian, Jack Fraser-McGurk, emerged as the savior. His power-packed 65 runs off 18 balls revitalized Delhi's innings.

Mayank Markande's bowling trapped MacGaw at 65 runs off 18 balls. His innings included 5 fours and 7 sixes.

With MacGaw's dismissal, Delhi's momentum staggered. Among the next batters, Abhishek Porwal and Rishabh Pant showed some resilience. Porwal scored 42 runs off 22 balls, and Pant contributed 44 runs off 35 balls before departing.

No other batter from Delhi could ignite the innings, succumbing to the excellent bowling performance by the opposition pacer Thangarasu Natarajan, who clinched 4 wickets single-handedly.

Delhi Capitals concluded their innings at 199 runs, losing all wickets.
