Hyderabad, April 19: Riding over brilliant fifties from Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs in the league match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 here on Wednesday (April 19).
In response to Hyderabad's score of 191 for the loss of four wickets in the set 20 overs, Delhi Daredevils could only manage 176/5. (Scorecard)
Hyderabad have thus won their second game on the trot and registered a clinical win in their backyard.
Warner, who had no hesitations on opting to bat first, was unlucky to be dismissed for four in the second over, but a 136-run stand between Dhawan and Williamson took the hosts comfortably towards a big total.
Chris Morris was the pick of Delhi bowlers as he got all four wickets and conceded just 26 runs from his quota of 4 overs.
Sunrisers are playing debutant Mohammed Siraj, young pacer from Hyderabad, while Delhi Daredevils have brought in all-rounder Jayant Yadav in their playing XI.
