Dhawan, Williamson ensure SRH make playoff's in IPL 11; Delhi knocked out

Andre Russell had hit 68 runs off just 20 balls - the highest by a batsman at the death in an IPL innings - against Chennai Super Kings earlier this season. Dhawan has had a quiet tournament after scores of 78 and 45 in the first two games.

With five overs left in the innings, Delhi stared at some sort of respectability before another miscommunication between the batsmen ended Patel's stay. "We are very fortunate to have the bowlers that we have... also the depth in the bowling". SRH are also on a winning run of 5 successive games, their best in any season of the IPL.

By the end of the fourteenth over, the visitors crossed 150 runs only to make matters worse for Delhi.

Dhawan and Williamson were in blistering form as they toyed with hapless bowling of Delhi. He was involved in two run-outs on the day, even running out skipper Shreyas Iyer who as a result failed to register a half-century for the first time at the Kotla this season. Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy opened the innings. The batsman had a change of heart half-way down the pitch but by then it was too late for Iyer to get back safely into his crease at the non-striker's end.

In their last meeting at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the Sunrisers romped home by 7 wickets as Delhi once again squandered a great start to lose the plot in the dying stages. It included nine boundaries and four sixes.

He is second in the list of highest run-getters.

They contributed to a record 176-run partnership to consolidate SRH's position at the top of the order. Such was the ferocity of Pant's blitz that a premium bowler like Bhuvneshwar finished with figures of 4-0-53-1. He hit Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for fours and sixes plenty, smashed Shakib over the fence and hit seamers with such contempt that it seemed he was hell-bent on revenge.

Pant sent the ball out for another four in the nineteenth over to reach his maiden IPL century after connecting well with a Siddharth Kaul delivery. He carted Rashid for 27 runs off 13 balls.

A partnership was building up between Harshal and Pant. Which he did by smashing Bhuvneshwar.

After losing the toss and fielding first, Williamson's Sunrisers could only sit and watch as Delhi wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant hammered 128 not out from 63 balls with 15 fours and seven sixes, as the Daredevils posted 187/5 from their 20 overs.
