David Warner-Rovman Powell’s blitzkrieg shadows Nicholas Pooran’s effort, DC beat SRH by 21 runs


Delhi Capitals defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 21 runs thanks to David Warner and Rovman Powell’s unbeaten knocks of 92 and 67.

Nicholas Pooran tried to steer his side as close as he could, but ultimately, the lone warrior could only lament a lack of support from his fellow SRH batters.

Earlier in the day, SRH skipper Kane Williamson had won the toss and he chose to bowl first, but Delhi Capitals responded in stunning fashion as they racked up a total of 207/3 in 20 overs, which proved to be a mountain that Sunrisers couldn’t scale in the end.

Khaleel Ahmed’s 3 wicket spell combined with handful contributions from Shardul Thakur and others helped restrict SRH to a total of 186, and they’ve now lost three games on the trot, a far cry from their five-match winning streak earlier in the campaign.

Chasing a huge target of 208, Pooran (62 off 34 balls, 4×2, 6×6) while Markram scored a brisk cameo but in the end, their efforts were not enough as Sunrisers Hyderabad could manage only 188/8 in 20 overs.

Delhi Capitals had posted a big score of 207/3 in 20 overs thanks to an unbeaten 58-ball 92 by David Warner and 67 not out off 35 balls by Rovman Powell as they shared a brilliant 122-run partnership, complementing each other`s efforts. While Powell was all power, Warner was sublime and precise as he found the gaps easily to score 12 boundaries and three sixes.
