Yusuf Pathan came to the party as he scored 27 off 12 coupled with Kane Williamson's 30 from 32 to take Sunrisers to yet another win in the tournament. This now becomes their seventh victory of the campaign as they have topped the table yet again.
There was a moment in the game when Delhi thought they were favorites in the game when Amit Mishra took two quick wickets. The DD bowlers managed to strangle the SRH batsmen in the middle overs.
Yusuf Pathan then changed the course of the match in the Sunrisers favor as he scored a crucial 27 runs to take his team over the line. Yusuf Pathan was dropped on 0 by Avesh Khan and Alex Hales was dropped by Maxwell midway through his innings which added to DD's misery.
Twitter as always was buzzing at such a close contest at the end. Midway through the SRH innings, everyone expected DD to have the upper hand and this was when Yusuf Pathan's innings proved to be the key for the Orange Army.
Here are the top tweets from the contest.
This is a very good chase so far but it isn't done. There is life in this game— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 5, 2018
Pathan dropped on 0, then poor bowling at the death. Delhi left to rue at what might have been with more discipline. But super chase by SRH— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) May 5, 2018
