Warner fireworks see Sunrisers to victory over KKR

In the game number 40 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 10, it was speculated that Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will easily win the game after Yuvraj Singh played a phenomenal knock of 70 runs off 41 balls. Delhi jumped two places after this win and are now placed at the sixth spot in the points table. Given the depth in their bowling, there was no addition being made to the list on this night, not in Hyderabad where they have now five straight matches.

'I don't think there was anything odd in the wicket, it was maybe a little slow, but definitely not a 67 all-out wicket, ' said Nair, who captained Daredevils for the first time after Zaheer Khan failed to recover from a hamstring injury sustained last Friday against Knight Riders.

Delhi won the toss today and chose to BOWL first.

Jayant Yadav, included in place of Shahbaz Nadeem, also did a great job by conceding only 26 runs in his four overs.

There will be just the one match played on Wednesday.

At one point Hyderabad were struggling at 92/3 in 12 overs.

Warner blasted away from the outset and though he received a slice of luck as he approached his hundred when Chris Woakes dropped him on the boundary, his innings was brutal. The handing over of captaincy to the out-of-form Karun Nair in the absence of Zak in itself speaks of the dismal situation Delhi find themselves in. He pulled Siddarth Kaul aimlessly only to be caught at long-off by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.

But by the time Iyer left, Delhi were well within the victory zone. The highest individual score was 18 from Corey Anderson. He scored 51 off his last 20 balls, hitting 11 fours and a six. Every team tries to win as many games at home as they can.

Earlier, skipper Warner and Shikhar Dhawan (29), who had forged a 107-run opening partnership in their last match against KXIP, produced yet another scintillating 139-run opening partnership in 76 balls to set up the foundation.

Moises Henriques hasn't been as good with the bat as he has been with the ball and it is at this batting position that SRH's real problems begin to surface. The innings was then on 75 and the opener's wicket finally stalled the flight - only 24 runs were scored in the five overs after Powerplay as Delhi bowlers applied the brakes.

KKR V/S SRH is touted as the most interesting thrilling match of the series where most of the contestants will be doing unbelievable stuff in order to play the game and Cricketer are just most probably nailed it to win this game. After getting shot out for 67, though, Daredevils could bring him in on Tuesday.

DD, though, with two more young Indian batsmen at the crease - Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer - kept going at the required run rate of nine, which meant, with the final ten overs to go, the chase was under control, as DD needed a makeable 90.
