Sunrisers Hyderabad possess what can arguably be described as the best bowling attack among all contesting teams, as time and again they have defended low totals to showcase their abilities with the ball.
Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan left the hosts high and dry with the wickets of Shaw (9) and Roy (11) off the last two balls of his very first over. Dhawan scored unbeaten 92 runs that included nine fours and 4 sixes while Kane Williamson hit 83 runs off 53 balls.
Reflecting on their plan against Pant, the 24-year-old said revealed that they had chose to bowl him outside the off-stump, but he managed to notch runs even on those deliveries. Sunrisers won the toss and elected to field first.
Pant is the first Indian to score a century this season.
Candidates' stances on Trump are most important issue in midterms
Perhaps most revealing of all, though, was a race that drew far less attention and where the incumbent got no outside help. The major Republican candidates cast themselves as Trump allies and in some cases explicitly invoked him as a role model.
After early setbacks, Pant's superb knock enabled the Delhi recover to 187 for five, which seemed quite a challenge for their rivals, who have relied more on their bowling than batting to bail them out. He hit Bhuvneshwar for 43 off just 11 balls - the most by any batsman against Bhuvneshwar in a T20 game, and the highest by a batsman off a bowler in a match this season. Pant was involved in both the runouts!
However, it was an off day for the duo as they were taken to the cleaners by Rishabh Pant.
Alex Hales and Shikhar Dhawan started the SRH run chase.
Then Pant happened as Glenn Maxwell remained a spectator at the other end - their 63-run partnership had just nine from the Australian. During this innings, he hit 15 fours and 7 sixes. The way Pant attacked Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan was marvellous and this innings will surely give Pant confidence and it will reaffirm that he belongs at the global level and despite Delhi's dismal season, Pant has turned a corner and his India recall is not far away.
Capitals seize control over Lightning in wild 2-second swing
If they can get Nicklas Backstrom back for Game 3, and that is a big if, then Washington has a legitimate shot at the Cup. I'll give Vegas some credit for making it this far as an expansion team, and so I'll go as far as giving them two wins.
"We had some great and experienced bowlers in our team - there's Bhuvneshwar (Kumar), Rashid Khan, Siddharht Kaul, who have been putting excellent deliveries throughout the tournament".
Delhi chose to put scoreboard pressure on the opposition by deciding to bat but things did not go according to plan in the powerplay.
As Rishabh Pant completed his century in 56 balls, he became the second youngest batsman to score a hundred in the eleven-year history of the IPL.
