Risabh Pant after scoring ton Pant ton in vain as Dhawan, Williamson seal SRH's play-off spot

With their bowling being their strength, it was the batting that would've been a worry for SRH. Despite the contrasting positions at the table, the DD-SRH encounter shall be a treat for cricket lovers since DD is expected to a play fearless brand of cricket and as they have shown so often, on their day can upset any opposition.

Kane Williamson and Shikar Dhawan registered a record partnership of 176 runs for the second wicket and made the team chase the total easily. Trent Boult with the ball for DD.In OVERS 1.5, Harshal Patel struck early, Alex Hales gone for 14.

The Sunrisers are playing as well as they ever have in the IPL. He got a tally of 16 wickets from ten games and finished as the third highest wicket-taker for his team.

SRH coach Tom Moody had insisted that "players like Shikhar Dhawan don't just disappear off the face of Earth" on the eve of the game and the Delhi star chose the flawless setting to roar back into form after a disappointing outing in the IPL so far. SRH needed Shikhar Dhawan to return to form. Later on, Rishabh Pant was involved in run-outs of DD skipper Shreyas Iyer and Shreyas Patel that helped the visitors get back into the game. Regardless, the fact that the performance was against the same opponent will definitely boost their confidence despite their batting failure against Bangalore. The result? Similar; they were taken for runs. From there the switch had been flicked; the star young star batsman going on a rampage as he collected 98 runs from his next 37 balls, combining outstanding ball-striking with innovative strokeplay - several daring reverse ramp shots the highlight of his brilliant knock.

Fantasy Picks: It is hard to pick five or six from this lineup considering how they have been performing.

Bolts to open conference final at home Friday
Boston opened the series with a decisive 6-2 win in Tampa Bay, but dropped the next two games, bringing up a critical Game Four. They are now into the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1997/98 when they made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Right after the match, pace bowler Sandeep Sharma, one bowler who was spared, said that while their bowling has been good, they still need to think about situations like these.

The dew also played its part as the ball came onto the bat and made the job a whole lot easier for the batsmen. The inclusion of Naman Ojha did not work out either, though to be fair his run out was unfortunate and he deserves another chance.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishab Pant have been impressive for the Delhi franchise this season.

SRH sit comfortably at the summit with eight wins from ten matches.

Delhi had crawled to 52 for three in 10 overs but Pant's power hitting quickly changed the course of the game. Vijay Shankar has looked in great touch as a pinch-hitter down the order.
