SRH outplayed DC in all facets of the game | BCCI-IPLSunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) registered a thumping 67-run victory over Delhi Capitals (DC) in Match 35 of the IPL 2024 season at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on Saturday (April 20).

Invited to bat first, SRH piled up a gigantic 266/7 on the board. While the duo of Travis Head (89 off 32) and Abhishek Sharma (46 off 12) set the tone with an opening stand of 131 runs in just 6.2 overs, Shahbaz Ahmed (59* off 29) and Nitish Reddy (37 off 27) made valuable contributions in the middle overs.

Amid the carnage, Akshar Patel returned with impressive bowling figures of 1/29 in his four overs for the Capitals. While Kuldeep Yadav managed to pick up four scalps, he was quite expensive with the ball, conceding 55 runs in his four overs.

In reply, DC’s innings folded for 199. After losing both the openers cheaply, the hosts fought back a bit thanks to some fireworks from Jake Fraser-McGurkc (65 off 18) and Abishek Porel (42 off 22).

However, their dismissal triggered a collapse as DC slumped from 109/3 to 166/6. While skipper Rishabh Pant tried to delay the inevitable with a patient knock of 35-ball 44, Delhi’s innings eventually ended in 19.1 overs.

Left-arm pacer T Natarajan was the pick of the bowlers for SRH, claiming four wickets by conceding only 19 runs in his four overs. Nitish Reddy and Mayank Markande picked up two scalps each.

Cricket fraternity was impressed with Sunrisers Hyderabad’s stunning display with both bat and ball against the Delhi Capitals.
