Delhi continued their excellent form in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and won their second consecutive match as they beat Andhra Pradesh by six wickets in an Elite Group E game at Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>It was a comprehensive performance from Delhi players as they outclassed Andhra Pradesh in both batting and bowling. <p></p> <p></p>Delhi captain Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and opted to bowl first, as Andhra top-order failed miserably and they lost four wickets for just 36. Captain Rayudu departed for just 1 while domestic cricket stars KS Bharat (8) and Ricky Bhuvi (0) also failed to impressed anyone. <p></p> <p></p>Ashwin Hebber was the highest run-scorer for Andhra with a 32-run knock. <p></p> <p></p>Delhi chased the target with three overs to spare even as skipper and India opener Shikhar Dhawan (5) fell cheaply. <p></p> <p></p>Pradeep Sangwan was the picks of the bowlers as he claimed three wickets while he was a bit expensive and leaked 33 runs. Senior India paceman Ishant Sharma (2/17), right-arm pacer Simarjeet Singh (2/21) and off-spinner Lalit Yadav (2/22) played their roles to perfection. <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/BCCIdomestic/status/1349308713312473093 <p></p> <p></p>For Delhi, the chase wasn't exactly a walk in the park as they were reduced to 10 for two.
