Delhi Capitals propelled to second position on the points table after they edged Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. In Match 30 of the IPL 2019, Delhi Capitals posted 155-7 and then skittled out the hosts for 116.
After losing both openers cheaply, the Delhi Capitals’ innings was rescued by the middle order. Colin Munro then stitched a 49-run stand with captain Shreyas Iyer (45). Once Munro was dismissed, the Delhi Capitals captain added 56 runs with Rishabh Pant, who made 23 from 19 balls.
They eventually finished at 155-7 – a total which looked 20 runs short of par score at the halfway stage.
In the second half, the Sunrisers got off to a brisk start, with Jonny Bairstow and David Warner added 72 for the opening stand. Bairstow was dismissed for 41 off 31 balls and was followed soon after by Kane Williamson.
With the pitch slowing up, well-set David Warner struggled to find his timing – and was eventually dismissed for 51.
The hosts, 101-2 at one stage, suffered a spectacular collapse losing 8 wickets for 15 runs, to be dismissed for 116.
Kagiso Rabada (4-22) was the standout bowler for the Delhi Capitals, while Keemo Paul and Chris Morris picked up three wickets each.
