The Delhi Daredevils’ batting line-up worked in tandem to not only hand the Sunrisers Hyderabad a six-wicket loss, but also snap their two-game winning streak.

Being put in to bat first, the Sunrisers got off to a good start as captain David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan amassed a 53-run partnership before Warner was clean bowled by Mohammed Shami for 30.

Dhawan went on to make 28 before falling to Amit Mishra, while Kane Williamson managed to score 24 before becoming Shami’s second victim.

With wickets falling regularly, Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques put a stop to that as they put together an unbeaten 93-run stand, during which Yuvraj surpassed his fifty.

Yuvraj ended up making 70 not out, which came off 41 balls and included 11 boundaries and a six, as the Sunrisers finished on 185/3 off their 20 overs.

Stand-in captain Karun Nair made an encouraging 20-ball 39 before he was sent packing by Siddarth Kaul.

Anderson concluded the match unbeaten on 41, which came off 24 balls and included two boundaries and three sixes.

Siraj was the most successful bowler with two wickets, while Kaul and Bhuvneshwar Kumar claimed one wicket each.
