Kane Williamson’s unbeaten knock of 66 went in vain as Sunrisers Hyderabad went down to Delhi Capitals in the Super Over on Sunday.
After winning the toss and electing to bat first, Delhi Capitals opening duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw got their team off to a fine start. The pair added 81 runs for the opening wicket before the former was bowled by Rashid Khan for 28.
Shaw’s quickfire knock of 53 ended in a run out after a mix-up with skipper Rishabh Pant. Pant along with Steve Smith added 48 runs for the third wicket before the former was caught at deep midwicket by Jagadeesha Suchith off Siddarth Kaul.
Shimron Hetymer also perished in the same over, as he sliced a Kaul delivery to Kane Williamson.
Smith provided a late flourish with an unbeaten 34 off 25 balls to take Delhi Capitals to 159/4 at the end of their allotted 20 overs.
Chasing 160, SRH captain David Warner was run out while attempting a tight single off Kagiso Rabada. The dangerous Jonny Bairstow was caught at mid on by Dhawan off Avesh Khan for a breezy 38 off 18.
Virat Singh stay at the crease ended when he miscued a pull straight to Marcus Stoinis at midwicket.
Axar Patel trapped Abhishek Sharma and Rashid Khan leg before off consecutive deliveries leaving Sunrisers in trouble at 117/6.

Suchith smashed two fours in three balls to bring the equation down to 16 off the last over.
