Shikhar Dhawan turns daredevil in Delhi

Delhi Daredevils Trent Boult has been their spearhead

Such was the ferocity of Pant's blitz that a premium bowler like Bhuvneshwar finished with figures of 4-0-53-1.

Following Hale's departure by an LBW, Sunrisers Captain Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan ran riots upon the Daredevils' bowlers and fielders as they cruised to a comfortable 9-wicket victory with seven balls to spare. In their previous meeting at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the Sunrisers has won by 7 wickets. Delhi's bowling department seemed to have lost the plot, with Harshal Patel recording the unit's best average economy at 8.00. Shakib Al Hasan struck off consecutive balls in the fourth over to remove in-form opener Prithvi Shaw (9) and Englishman Jason Roy (11), leaving Delhi at 21 for two.

The first confirmation has come after 42 matches in IPL 2018. But their Bowling set up with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Shakib Al Hasan has knocked the socks off nearly all bating stalwarts. Earlier, Pant gave the best possible answer to the selectors for omitting him from the national team by hitting an unbeaten 128 of only 63 balls.

Earlier opting to bat, Delhi Daredevils posted a challenging 187 for 5 in stipulated 20 overs. The batsman had a change of heart half-way down the pitch but by then it was too late for Iyer to get back safely into his crease at the non-striker's end.

Mr Javid confirmed his predecessors had set deportation targets but refused to say he would abolish them. Rudd was carrying forward May's policies, which caused her downfall.

67 Pant's runs off 23 balls in the death overs - the second highest by any batsman in an IPL innings. While Shakib and Sandeep Sharma went for just over a run a ball and six an over respectively, Rashid conceded 35 and Kaul, 48, with 138 being scored in the second half of DD's innings. Both Williamson and Dhawan remained unbeaten on the night as they ensured none of the other SRH batsmen had any role to play in their team's highest run chase of all time. Delhi didn't learn from SRH's mistakes; the slower balls were taken for runs, and they didn't pick that up.

Prithvi Shaw has been getting Delhi Daredevils off to some electric starts in the recent matches. It was the also highest individual score for an Indian batsman in IPL history, eclipsing Murali Vijay's 127 (for Chennai Super Kings) in 2010.

In reply, Dhawan and Williamson stitched a match-winning 172 runs partnership for the second wicket to take Sunrisers through past the tricky total.
