Chasing a total of 208, SunRisers Hyderabad are seven wickets down against Delhi Capitals in Match 50 at the Brabourne Stadium.

Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran had put on a fighting partnership before the former was removed by Khaleel Ahmed.

For DC, Khaleel has taken two wickets while Mitchell Marsh and Anrich Nortje have taken a wicket each. Earlier, David Warner reserved his best for his former franchise as he hit 12 boundaries and 3 sixes to remain unbeaten on 92, while Rovman Powell on the other end bludgeoned 6 sixes and 3 boundaries to remain unbeaten on 67 off 35 balls as Delhi Capitals scored 207/3 in 20 overs against SunRisers Hyderabad.

Rishabh Pant said, ‘ There is always room for improvement, but it’s close to a perfect game for us as a batting unit. I was calm about myself. In high chases, the other team needs 10-12 runs per over, it’s difficult to hit till the 20th over.

I was telling the bowlers to be calm. (On Warner) The way he batted, the way he paced the innings, it’s one of the best innings. We knew what he (Powell) can give us, we backed him and he’s coming out with flying colours now. We are just taking one game at a time and trying to give our 100%. I got out to a full-toss, that’s part and parcel of the game. Good and important win for us.’
