IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets

Former India pacer Irfan Khan pegged the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling attack as the strongest one in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League

He was handed a life by Wriddhiman Saha when on 29 off Rashid and rubbed salt in SRH's wound after he smashed the legspinner for a six off the next delivery. It was full on middle stump and Shaw drove it straight to the bowler.

That SRH are on a four-match winning run owes a lot to their bowlers. He dominated the second wicket partnership with his captain - contributing 58 runs to the 86-run stand, and brought up his half-century off 25 balls.

The execution of the slower balls and yorkers combined worked wonders in the latter half of the Delhi innings as they were kept to 163 for 5.

Delhi was comfortably poised at 125/2 at 15 overs, optimistic of a big total. Archer took three wickets and Gowtham took two wickets for RR.

Khan (4-0-23-2) showed fine reflexes in his follow through while running out Naman Ojha and then four balls later he removed the unsafe Rishab Pant (lbw), who went for a review but it was in vain.

57 no other batsman has contributed from the other end making it hard for the right hand New Zealand skipper at critical situations. SRH's bowling department even without Bhuvneshwar Kumar is definitely side's stronger point. SRH, on the other hand, are sitting pretty at the top with 12 points from eight games. The match went close and it was finally left to Williamson to play yet again a calculative innings. In came Alex Hales, who was a like-for-like replacement for Warner.

Seismic incident kills four at Sibanye-Stillwater mine
Driefontein produced 482,000 ounces of gold in 2017, accounting for about a third of Sibanye's output of the metal. Cosatu said it was "alarmed by the deteriorating and poor safety record of Sibanye Stillwater mining company".

The match is scheduled to start at 8 P.M. IST on Saturday (May 5).

Alex Hales and Shikhar Dhawan commenced the innings by handling Trent Boult cautiously.

With the ball, Avesh Khan has grabbed eyeballs with his extreme pace and shown signs of the ability to bowl quality cutters as well. SRH ended the Powerplay with 61 on the board - their only second fifty-run stand this season, and their highest Powerplay score this year.

However, their concern lies in the batting front, apart captain Kane Williamson, who has 354 runs from nine games at an average of 50. He then had Dhawan bowled for 33 off 30 in his third over with a wrong 'un, with SRH's batsmen unable to pick his variations. Williamson ended the night with a score of 32 while Pathan has 27 runs to his name. Williamson fittingly hit the winning runs, unbeaten on 32 off 30, after adding 32 off 16 deliveries with Pathan.

However, Virat Kohli-led RCB, need to pull up its socks as they need to win every game from now onwards to remain in contention for the play-offs. He has leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (7 wickets, nine games) for company but Mohammed Siraj, Murugan Ashwin, Washington Sundar and Tim Southee have been rotated as RCB are yet to find a set bowling line-up.
