NEW DELHI: Yusuf Pathan (27 not out off 12 balls) held his nerves in the end to help Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets and reclaimed the top spot in the 2018 Indian Premier League standings on Saturday. With seven wins from nine games, Sunrisers now have 14 points and are placed ahead of Chennai Super Kings via better net run-rate.

Scorecard | As it happened


Sunrisers Hyderabad chased down the competitive 164-run target in 19.5 overs with skipper Kane Williamson (32* off 30 balls) hitting the winning single in the penultimate ball of the run chase. Needing 28 runs off 12 balls, Yusuf smacked couple of sixes and as many fours to take the hosts home.

IPL 2018 Points Table


After suffering seventh defeat in ten games, Daredevils are stranded at the seventh spot with six points.

Alex Hales, who was dropped by Glenn Maxwell on 9 in the second over, and Shikhar Dhawan provided Sunrisers a solid start to the run chase.

After taking the team to 34/0 in five overs, Sunrisers openers chose pacer Avesh Khan to press the accelerator in the final over of the Powerplay. Dhawan hit the first maximum of the chase on a free-hit, before Hales took over and smashed three sixes to compile 27 runs and took Sunrisers to 61/0 after six overs.

Leg spinner Amit Mishra and Daniel Christian put a brake on the scoring rate with some tidy bowling as they gave away just seven runs in the next two overs. And it took a stunner from Mishra, the last ball of the ninth over, to bamboozle Hales as the veteran leggie gave Delhi a big breakthrough.

Hales scored 45 off 31 balls with the help of three sixes and three fours as he added 76 runs for the opening wicket with Dhawan. It was the best start for the Sunrisers in the season.

Mishra then clean bowled Dhawan in his next over to keep Delhi in the hunt. From 61/0 in six overs, Sunrisers were reduced to 86/2 in 11 overs – that’s 25 runs in five overs for the loss of the two openers. Mishra completed his four overs with excellent figures of 2/19.

Williamson and Manish Pandey found it tough to negotiate the slowness of the surface as runs dried up in the middle overs. Sunrisers failed to score a single boundary during the period of 9-14 overs. Pandey stopped the rut by hitting Christian for back-to-back fours in the 15th over to make the equation 49 off five overs.

Williamson then hit a six off Avesh and scored 10 in the next over. Liam Plunkett broke the 46-run stand to jolt the home side as he dismissed Pandey (21 off 17 balls) and gave away just four runs in the 18th over. It changed the equation to 28 off 12 balls.

Yusuf then hit a six and a four off Trent Boult in the penultimate over to make it 14 off last over. After taking a double in the first ball off Christian, Yusuf smacked six and four in consecutive balls to stun the visitors.

After opting to bat first, Daredevils could not cash in on the brilliant platform laid by young Prithvi Shaw as Sunrisers restricted them to 163/5.

Shaw smashed 65 off 36 balls but after scoring 95 in the first 10 overs, DD managed only 67 in the back 10 with the pitch getting slower and the odd delivery holding up. Leg-spinner Rashid Khan (2/23 in 4 overs) was the most impressive bowler for Sunrisers as he put the brakes in the second half of the Delhi innings.

Shaw once again provided a blazing start, scoring his second IPL half-century in only 25 balls. His innings had six boundaries and three huge sixes. He teed off with six over long on off Sandeep Sharma and then lofted Shakib Al Hasan inside out for his second maximum.

The most fruitful over was the final one in the Powerplay where Shaw literally got stuck into Siddarth Kaul, hitting him for a six and three boundaries in consecutive balls.

Till Shaw was taking on the bowlers, his skipper Shreyas Iyer (44 off 36 balls) played the second fiddle to perfection during their 86-run stand for the second wicket. Shaw was finally out when he tried to hit Rashid against the turn, gifting a simple catch to Kaul at short third man in the 11th over.

Skipper Iyer was looking good for another half-century before his attempted flick shot off Kaul was snapped by Dhawan at deep mid-wicket. Delhi’s top run-getter in the season, Rishabh Pant (18 off 19 balls) was off-colour as Rashid trapped him leg-before.

Naman Ojha, getting his first look-in in the tournament, was run-out. From 95 for 1, Delhi slumped to 134 for 5 in the space of 6.4 overs.

Vijay Shankar (23 not out off 13 balls) took Delhi past 160-run mark, by scoring 17 off the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was coming back from injury.

Brief Scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 164/3 (Alex Hales 45; Amit Mishra 2/19) beat Delhi Daredevils 163/5 (Prithvi Shaw 65; Rashid Khan 2/23) by seven wickets
