Williamson also moves to second overall on the IPL's leading runscorer list for this season, with his 493 runs coming at an average of 61.62, with six half-centuries to his name. Kane Williamson, the skipper, provided the flawless foil to the opener, tallying a classy unbeaten 83 to help Hyderabad to their ninth win of the season, thus helping them seal a berth in the playoffs. In reply, league leaders Sunrisers romped home to victory with seven balls to spare ultimately. Dhawan and Williamson remained unbeaten on 92 and 83 respectively till the end as they got their side over the line in the most impressive of fashions. Dhawan smashed nine four and four sixes whereas Williamson hit eight boundaries and two over the line during his stint at the crease. The first ball of his final over, the 17th of the innings, was a wrong'un drifting away from length, right into Pant's weak zone.

A chase of 188 would be a daunting task for any side but the ease with which Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson achieved it was outstanding.

Two days after being dropped from India's Twenty20 squad for their tour of Ireland and England in order to accommodate a returning Dhoni, Pant displayed his six-hitting prowess with a blistering unbeaten 63-ball 128, albeit in a losing cause.

Shakib Al Hasan struck off consecutive balls in the fourth over to remove in-form opener Prithvi Shaw (9) and Englishman Jason Roy (11), leaving Delhi at 21 for two.

Much before it became a masterclass, Pant was caught in a whirl of frustration after running out his captain Shreyas Iyer for the second time this season. Hyderabad paced the chase brilliantly and reached 91 for 1 in 10 overs, 39 more than what Delhi had managed at the halfway mark. "Hopefully, I can continue my good form in India colours also", Siddarth Kaul said as quoted by CricketNext. This strategy allowed Sunrisers to concede just 18 runs off the 19 balls they bowled to him.

70 Runs scored by Pant off Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan, off only 24 balls.

The 20-year-old Rishabh Pant played his best Twenty20 inning slamming 128 runs off only 63 deliveries with 15 fours and 7 sixes at an unbelievable strike rate of above 205 to get DD to a handsome total of 187/5 against the best bowling unit of IPL 2018.
