  • IPL 2018: Ganguly lauds Pant, says he will soon play for India

Sunrisers Hyderabad chased down the total rather comfortably in the end to consolidate their position at the top of the table with a nine-wicket win at the Feroz Shah Kotla, sealing their spot in the play-offs.

Shakib Al Hasan (2-27) first accounted for Prithvi Shaw (9) and England's Jason Roy (11) - back in the Daredevils side after a lengthy absence - before Pant ran out his captain Shreyas Iyer (3) and Harshal Patel (24), just as the pair were beginning to recover the innings following the sluggish start.

The result: Sunrisers Hyderabad 1-191 (Dhawan 92*, Williamson 83*) beat Delhi Daredevils 5-187 (Pant 128*, Patel 1-32) by 9 wickets. "But we have to improve and take wickets with the new ball", he said.

However eventually, Pant's sublime side prevailed over his ridiculous side and DD were able to reach a very competitive total of 187/5.

Batting first, the Daredevils put up 187-5 in their 20 overs.

The defeat ended the Delhi' aspiration of a berth in the Playoffs, though they still have three home matches to play. After being involved in two run outs, it needed something special from the Delhi wicketkeeper to make up for it. He took 13 runs off Shakib's last over and in the process recorded his fourth fifty of the season, off only 36 balls.

Captain Kane does it again: His was only the third-highest score of the night, but Kane Williamson was again flawless as he anchored the Sunrisers run chase and provided the ideal foil for Shikhar Dhawan's 93* off 50. Pant's knock was studded with 15 fours and seven sixes.

A bowling unit consisting Bhuvneshwar Kumar, on-song Siddharth Kaul and Rashid Khan is enough to get opposition scratching their heads, but according to Moody, the idea is to not let them have an inch. Batting with clear anger and aggression, the left-handed youngster took apart everything in his wake as no Sunrisers bowler was spared. The duo made easy meat of the 188-run target with a 176-run partnership off just 102 balls after Alex Hales fell early. While Williamson notched his 6th half century of the tournament, Dhawan also finally came good with a breezy 92. Pant got stuck into the paceman and smashed him for 18 runs, 11 more than what he had conceded off his first two overs. Two of those scoops were in the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar who proved to be the most expensive bowler for Sunrisers, leaking 51 runs in four overs.
