The winning touch ticks the box for the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad as they were head and shoulders above the Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. Interestingly, Sunrisers are unbeaten at their castle as far as IPL 2017 is concerned.

Obviously, a run-fest was expected in this game and a 136-run stand at the top from Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan gave the team a much-needed impetus to touch 191/4. On the flip side, Chris Morris was the only bowler who took all the four wickets to his overs.

A cautious start is what required from the chasing side and though they lost one from the plot, Sanju Samson and Karun Nair rose to the occasion and played promising innings to their 71-run stand but Mohammed Siraj and Yuvraj Singh turned the game in favour of SRH.

Shreyas Iyer looked optimistic right from the word go till the end of the climax as he scored a 31-ball 50*. But, unfortunately, the visitors ran out of deliveries only to garner 176/5.

Player of the match: Kane Williamson – 89 (51)
