IPL 2016 : Daredevils Beat Sunrisers By 7 Wickets at Home


Hyderabad : Delhi Daredevils rode on an powerful batting execution to thrashing Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Thursday.

Pursuing an target of 147 runs, Delhi did not confront an excessive amount of challenges from the Hyderabad bowlers before cavorting home with 11 balls to spare.

Despite the loss, Hyderabad continue to sit at the top of the IPL table with 14 points from 11 matches. They have the same number of points as second placed Gujarat Lions but are ahead due to a superior run rate.

The hosts will however be disappointed with the fact that they have suffered a heavy defeat in their last home game of the ongoing season. They now face three away matches on the trot.

Delhi on the other hand, climbed to the third spot with 12 points from 10 matches.

The visitors were off to a poor start with opener Mayank Aggarwal departing early. But Quinton de Kock and Karun Nair (20) put together a 55-run partnership off 37 balls to build the foundation of a successful run chase.
