Here are all the statistical highlights from Sunrisers Hyderabad’s maiden win of the IPL 2020.
Sunrisers Hyderabad finally opened their winning account in the IPL 2020 after edging past the table-toppers Delhi Capitals in Abu Dhabi. The overseas batsmen David Warner (45), Jonny Bairstow (53) and Kane Williamson (41) scored 40+ runs to help Sunrisers finish on 162/4. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s tight opening spell followed by Rashid Khan’s breakthroughs kept DC down to 62/3 in the 12th over. Shimron Hetmyer and Rishabh Pant kept Delhi in the hunt but some top class death bowling by SRH helped them seal a 15-run win.
