Delhi Capitals rode on a brilliant fast bowling performance from their South African duo Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada to pulverize wooden spooners Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets. Capitals produced top-notch performance in their first match of the second phase of this year’s IPL to eke out the easy win. It was only possible after fast-furious Nortje bowled at 150 clicks to finish with 2 for 12 and was ably supported by Rabada (3/37) and Axar Patel (2/21) in a brilliant bowling effort. Last edition’s runners-up Delhi are now well and truly in contention for clinching a playoff berth with 14 points from nine games while the ‘Orange Army’ (SRH) with two points are all but out of the competition.
