There is no stopping Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in VIVO IPL 2018. On Match 36 of the tournament, SRH downed Delhi Daredevils (DD) and continued their supremacy at the top of the points table. The loss for DD means that even if they win all their games from now on, they have only reach to a maximum of 14 points, a mark that is unlikely to help them advance to the Playoffs.

SRH did not put up their A game but still managed to squeeze out 2 points from the game. The win was setup by Rashid Khan’s brilliant spell and later some lusty blows off the bats of Alex Hales and then Yusuf Pathan.

Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw continued his delightful show, slamming a 35-ball 65 to provide the apt platform for DD which they couldn’t capitalise. Amit Mishra, too, bowled a phenomenal spell but his efforts went in vain.

Here’s the marks out of 10 from the SRH vs DD encounter.
