Abu Dhabi: In IPL 13, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) stopped the Delhi team’s winning campaign by defeating Delhi Capitals (DC) by 15 runs. With this defeat to Delhi, Hyderabad has registered their first win in this IPL. At the same time, Delhi has faced the first defeat.
But in the meantime, we will tell you that the team of Delhi Capitals, which won two consecutive matches, failed to put a hat-trick of victory.
First bowling decision was wrong
Delhi captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to bowl first which proved to be wrong. Delhi bowlers failed to take a single wicket of Sunrisers Hyderabad for 9 overs. As a result, Sunrisers openers David Warner and Johnny Bairstow added 77 runs in 9.3 overs for the first wicket.
Delhi capitals started poorly
Chasing the target of 163 runs given by Sunrisers, Delhi Capitals had a very poor start and the team lost the wicket of opener Prithvi Shaw in the very first over. With this, Delhi scored just 34–1 runs at the loss of one wicket in the powerplay.
Captain Shreyas Iyer’s poor innings
Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Shreyas Iyer batted extremely poorly in this match. Iyer was seen battling in front of the Hyderabad bowlers in this match and the fact was that he was dismissed by playing an irresponsible shot after scoring just 17 runs in 21 balls.
Pant and Hetmyer out on crucial occasion
After falling wickets at regular intervals, Delhi Capitals batsmen Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer tried their best to handle Delhi’s innings. But in the final moments of the match when the Delhi Capitals were in dire need of these two, Pant and Hetmyer went out one by one and went to the pavilion.
Delhi Capitals batting slow
The target of 163 runs in T20 cricket is generally considered average. But Delhi Capitals made this goal big because of their slow batting against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Due to which in the end, the Delhi team needed 26 runs in the last over to win and the team lost the match by 15 runs.
