Chasing a tricky target of 164 to win, Sunrisers Hyderabad's skipper Kane Williamson (32*) and Yusuf Pathan (27*) contributed with useful knocks to take hosts over the line against Delhi Daredevils at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
Amit Mishra (2/19) picked up two wickets for the visitors, who suffered his seventh loss in the IPL 2018.
Earlier, Delhi Daredevils could not cash in on the brilliant platform laid by young Prithvi Shaw as Sunrisers Hyderabad restricted them to 163 for 5. Shaw smashed 65 off 36 balls but after scoring 95 in the first 10 overs, DD managed only 67 in the back 10 with the pitch getting slower and the odd delivery holding up.
Leg-spinner Rashid Khan (2/23 in 4 overs) was the most impressive bowler for Sunrisers as he put the brakes in the second half of the Delhi innings. Shaw once again provided a blazing start, reaching to his second IPL half-century in only 25 balls. His innings had six boundaries and three huge sixes.
Till Shaw was taking on the bowlers, his skipper Shreyas Iyer (44 off 36 balls) played the second fiddle to perfection during their 86-run stand.
