Sunrisers Hyderabad gets their fourth win in the Indian Premier League 2017 after beating Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs in Hyderabad. Winning the toss, SRH scored 191/4. In reply, Delhi Daredevils could only score 176/5.
Sunrisers Hyderabad rises to second spot in the IPL table with eight points. The star of today’s match was Kane Williamson, he played a brilliant knock of 89 of just 51 ball and also accompanied by brilliant inning from Shikhar Dhawan who score 70 in just 50-ball.
Warner: It was an outstanding performance from the guys. Kane played brilliantly and laid the platform for us. Sometimes people miss out on few games, but they know that it’s just to make sure that we get the right balance. We knew we wanted to keep wickets in hand and that’s what exactly Kane and Shikhar did tonight. For us it is about backing ourselves and executing our plans. That’s what I ask the guys to do, to come out and give their 100 percent. Bhuvi was exceptional and Kaul was superb tonight. It’s a challenging tournament and credit to all the fast bowlers for keeping fit. For us batters, it’s easy. Thanks to the crowd for the support.
Kane-ever-reliable-Williamson, Man of the Match: Nice to get a game. The guys have been doing really well, fortunate to get a game. The conditions were good and important that we got a good score batting first. Partnership was the key and guys really carried it well towards the end. I was trying to play the situation as well as I could. I suppose once the platform was built it was to increase the run rate. Partnership with the ball in hand, fielding is equally important. I just had a little niggle, probably not gonna do the team too much with the niggle I had.
Zaheer: Another great game of cricket. Unfortunate not to finish on the right side but am happy with the way the team is shaping up. I thought 180 was ideal but the last over I bowled is going to hurt me. Bhuvi has been fantastic and the lengths he has been bowling have been really good. (On Karun’s run-out) Such things happen in the heat of the situation. We need to get onto a winning roll in the tournament. Momentum is very important in situations like these and I hope we have one final roll left in us.
