How Delhi Daredevils' Rishabh Pant exposed chink in Sunrisers Hyderabad's armour

Shikhar-Kane spoil Pant party IPL 2018: Ganguly lauds Pant, says he will soon play for India

To laud the youngster's efforts, actor Suniel Shetty took to Twitter with an appreciation tweet and a shout out to the team India selectors to take notice of Pant's performance.

With just six points from 11 games, Delhi's hopes of making it to the top four are all but gone.

While the Indian scored 92* off 50 balls, the skipper wasn't too far behind, notching up 83 in 53 deliveries as SRH became the first team to enter the play-offs, while also knocking DD out of the competition.

SRK destabilised DD Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers once again impressed with their bowling with Shakib taking two consecutive wickets in the 4th over of the match. However, the star of the match was Rishab Pant who scored mindblowing runs i.e. 128 on 63 deliveries. Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson put on stand for the second wicket.

It was the Sunrisers' ninth win in 11 games as they retain top spot in the IPL standings.

Pant left the field with his head held high, however, having destroyed arguably the tournament's best bowling attack to register the highest Twenty20 score by an Indian player. Going forward, we need to have plans for a player like Rishabh, who is playing really well on a given day.

Apart from Pant's exploits, Delhi failed as a batting unit.

Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been two key bowlers for SunRisers this season and most batsmen have failed to get the better of the two.

The 29th over saw Pant dispatching Bhuvneshwar for three consecutive sixes, including a one handed hit that sailed over long-on.

Thanks to Pant, Delhi amassed 135 runs in the last 10 overs. But, they were put to test at the Kotla as 67 runs were leaked in the final four overs of the innings.

DD: 187 for 5 in 20 overs (Rishabh Pant 128 not out; Shakib Al Hasan 2/27). After losing opener Alex Hales in the second over, the pair put their combined worldwide experience to use as they added a season-record 176-run partnership for the second wicket, chasing down Delhi's total in clinical fashion to arrive at the total with two full overs to spare.
