  • IPL 2018 Sourav Ganguly Hails DD’s Rishabh Pant Says His Time Will Come

Preview: Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is on a roll in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season, and are now enjoying their life at the top of the points table. His last-over scoops off India's best death bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar made the crowd go insane.

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

However, Delhi do have something positive to take back home from their short-lived stint in season 11 of the Indian Premier League that is the consistent performance by its youngsters - Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer.

Agreed SRH's forerunners - Alex Hales, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, and Yusuf Pathan haven't been able to put up a grand score as off yet.

Sandeep Sharma was the most economical bowler as he conceded just 24 runs off his four overs, while Shakib Al Hasan gave only 27 runs for two wickets in hiss four overs. But when you score 128 off the team's 187, it has to be a special knock.

115 The previous highest score by a batsman when coming in to bat after the fourth over. Confusion at the crease again sees Harshal Patel being run-out this time.

Batting first, the Daredevils put up 187-5 in their 20 overs. Two of those scoops were in the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar who proved to be the most expensive bowler for Sunrisers, leaking 51 runs in four overs.

In Somalia flooding has displaced tens of thousands, while torrential rains have also caused havoc in Tanzania and Uganda. The rain has pounded East Africa for over a month, killing more than 100 people in Kenya and displacing 260,000.

Maxwell (9) was a mere spectator to the southpaw's fireworks, who muscled pacer Siddharth Kaul's full toss to the deep midwicket boundary to bring up his maiden IPL ton in mere 56 balls. Together, Pant-Dhawan-Williamson scored 303* runs of 166 balls in the game.

Delhi's woes this season has been compounded by an inconsistent opening partnership, despite teenager Prithvi Shaw going great guns blazing at the top.

Williamson and Dhawan seemed to be having quite a stroll in the park as they faced no compilations in keeping the run-rate above the required margin across all overs.

In reply, Dhawan and Williamson stitched a match-winning 172 runs partnership for the second wicket to take Sunrisers through past the tricky total.

"Any quality batsman, if they have got the skills, will adapt (to) any form of the game and Kane Williamson is no different", Hesson said ahead of the high-flying SRH game against the struggling Delhi Daredevils.

Disappointing for Delhi after Pant's century to end up on the losing side, but they were outclassed by two experienced campaigners.
