How Delhi Daredevils' Rishabh Pant exposed chink in Sunrisers Hyderabad's armour

Best innings of IPL 2018’ Twitter explodes in praise as Rishabh Pant smashes 63-ball 128

The youngster's 128 not out off 63 balls, the highest individual score in the current edition, did not bring the expected result for his team.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are on top of the table with 16 points needing only one more win in the remaining four games to secure a place in the playoffs spot. While Dhawan hit nine fours and four sixes, Williamson had eight boundaries and two over-boundaries. His overall tally reached 521 - 28 runs ahead of second-placed Kane Williamson of SRH (493 runs in 11 games) after Matchday 34.

Earlier, though, it looked like SRH had a battle on its hands as Pant found the flawless stage to showcase himself.

The unbeaten innings, played against the IPL 2018 table-toppers who have arguably the best bowling attack in the tournament, will be remembered for a long long time.

Today is the 42nd match of the IPL 2018 and match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils.

Shakib Al Hasan of Sunrisers picked up two wickets.

Shaw departed after top-edging a short delivery to the safe hands of Shikhar Dhawan at cover before Roy nicked the next delivery back to Shreevats Goswami.

Shakib delivered Roy the exact next ball using a beauty which flipped out only enough to take the edge towards the wicketkeeper.

Pant's knock reminded Ganguly of Brendon McCullum's 73-ball 158 not out against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the opening night of the IPL when Kolkata Knight Riders won by 140 runs at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on April 18, 2008. Small contributions from other members of the team helped them post a total of 187 runs. Delhi were tottering at 43/3 and also going at less than six runs per over and again the change in the opening partnership (Jason Roy replacing Colin Munro) didn't help the matters much and the continuing failure of the top order has been one of the reasons for Delhi's bad season.

In the final over of the powerplay, Pant took Siddharth Kaul's bowling spell for a rampage, hitting four boundaries (all fours) in three deliveries to put Delhi at 38/2, and allowing room for hope that there was still a certain load of ammunition in the Daredevils' lineup.

The left-hander was also at his innovative best as he used the scoop shot over third man not once but thrice. Bhuvneshwar, who had conceded 7 runs off his first two overs, finished with his second-most expensive figures in the IPL of 1 for 51, with 44 coming off his last two. It was a rare off day for its India pacer.
