Vohra charge in vain as Sunrisers snatch victory

IPL 2017 David Warner Zaheer Khan heap lavish praise on 'world-class' Bhuvneshwar Kumar

With their fourth successive win at home, defending champions Hyderabad jumped to second spot with eight points from six matches.

Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to continue their three-match winning run at home when they face a spirited Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) contest at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday. David Warner leads the run-scorers chart with 235 runs in 5 innings at 78.33.

Low totals can be tricky and that's exactly what Kings XI found out as Bhuvneshwar (5/19) wrecked the top order and then the bottom just as Manan Vohra took the visiting side to the doorstep of victory. It's worked for him in two matches so far, but didn't in their last match against Kolkata. He was lucky though. While Bhuvneshwar got rid of Mohit (10), Dhawan dropped a catch at cover of Vohra. Jayant Yadav's accurate non-turning offbreaks gave Sunrisers no breathing space at the other end.

Seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar added to the carnage with a five-wicket haul that sealed the deal.

Williamson scored 89 runs off 51 balls with six boundaries and five sixes while Dhawan posted 50 runs, studding his 50-ball stint with seven boundaries and a six.

Portland went 0-4 against the Warriors this season, although the last game in January was just a two-point Golden State win. Stephen Curry is averaging 25.3 points and 6.6 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 25.1 points and 8.3 rebounds.

Punjab opener Manan Vohra was the lone ranger, firing relentlessly from the trenches until he was the ninth man out in the penultimate over. He then returned to dismiss unsafe Glenn Maxwell (10) in the innings third over. Dhawan now features alongside Warner in four of Hyderabad's 11 century-stands, with Williamson notching his second triple-figure partnership for the franchise. It was then the turn of his partner Rashid Khan to make his mark.

Nabi's young compatriot, Rashid Khan plundered a six in the final ball of the 20th over to take Hyderabad to 159/6. They replaced Ben Cutting, Ashish Nehra and Bipul Sharma. Put in to bat, Sunrisers were off to an insipid start against a disciplined Kings' bowling attack.

Fifty comes up for Shikhar Dhawan. Sandeep Sharma and Ishant Sharma stuck to the off-stump line that made scoring hard for the hosts. Incidentally that was the only boundary in the entire powerplay. Indian cricket fans may watch the live telecast and live streaming of IPL 2017 season 10 matches on TV channels such as Sony Max (Hindi), Sony Six (English), Sony Aath (Bengali) and Sony Kix (Telugu and Tamil) matches in their respective language commentary.

Vohra continued to be impressive but wickets at the other end kept flowing. Only 18 runs came off the next three overs as the asking rate ballooned past 12.
