Hyderabad: May 4, 2013

The Sunrisers Hyderabad drilled the final nail in Delhi Daredevils’ coffin to complete a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over the listless visitors at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium at Hyderabad.

Chasing as little as 81, the Hyderabad side did not give Delhi bowlers a chance to push for an upset early on as openers Parthiv Patel and Shikhar Dhawan started positively.

Dhawan exuded great confidence as he played some exquisite strokes through cover and cover-point before perishing for 22 when Johan Botha trapped him in front of the stumps.

Skipper Kumar Sangakkara tinkered with the batting line-up and promoted youngster Ashish Reddy at number three. The youngster played a good short off his back foot but perished to an Ashish Nehra delivery, giving a simple catch to Kedar Jadhav behind the stumps.

The wicket brought West Indian skipper Darren Sammy to the crease who seemed to be in a hurry to finish things off but Jeevan Mendis had other plans altogether. He bowled a lovely wrong ‘un to Patel who failed to read the ball and was stumped by Jadhav.

Jayawardene was buoyed by a couple of quick wickets but  the total was too little for the Delhi bowlers to script a turnaround. After Patel’s departure, Sangakkara walked out to join Sammy in the middle. Just when both were looking set to take their side home, Sangakkara needlessly holed out to Umesh Yadav at deep cover.

Sammy unleashed a big heave and Vihari played a good shot off his back foot to take the home side to their fifth home win in as many games by six wickets and  to spare.

This win takes them to the third spot and more importantly helps them boost their poor Net Run Rate as the race for the top four intensified.
