IPL: Rashid-Bhuvi's superb bowling, Hyderabad beat Delhi by 15 runs

With the help of the brilliant performance of the bowlers, Sunrisers Hyderabad recorded their first victory in the league by defeating Delhi Capitals by 15 runs in the 11th match of IPL2020. 
Against SRH's target of 163, Delhi lost 7 wickets in 20 overs and managed to score only 147 runs. For Delhi, Shikhar Dhawan top-scored and Rishabh Pant scored 28 but could not give the team a win. For SRH, Rashid Khan bowled brilliantly and gave away 14 runs in 4 overs while Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave away 25 runs for two wickets.

Chasing a target of 163, Delhi got off to a bad start. Opener Prithvi Shaw (2) fell victim to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over. From here, the Delhi team came under pressure and the Hyderabad bowlers tightened their grip. Shreyas Aiyar and Shikhar Dhawan had a 40-run partnership for the second wicket but the pace slowed down. Aiyar and Dhawan were out for a quick run. Later, Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hatmeyer (22) put up some resistance but they also gave up their wickets against SRH's tight bowling. At the end of 20 overs, Delhi managed to score 147 runs for 7 wickets and lost the match by 15 runs. This is Delhi's first defeat in the league.

Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Aiyar won the toss and elected to bat first at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. SRH made a slow but firm start. Captain David Warner and Johnny Bairstow later gradually increased the speed. The duo shared a 77-run partnership in 9.3 overs. Warne missed a half-century for five runs. He hit 45 off 33 balls with the help of 3 fours and 2 sixes. After dismissing him in the 10th over, Amit Mishra bowled Manish Pandey (3) in the 12th over to put Hyderabad under pressure.

Kane Williams, who is playing his first match of the season, took the wicket and gave Hyderabad the stability of the innings. Bairstow batted very slowly today, contrary to his familiar estimate. He faced 48 balls for 53 runs. Williams, on the other hand, showed quick play and scored 41 off 26 balls with the help of 5 fours. With the help of this innings, SRH was able to cross 160.

Delhi bowled tight and kept the Hyderabad batsmen tied. Amit Mishra scored 35 in four overs while Kagiso Rabada gave away just 21 runs in 4 overs.
