SRH Delhi Capitals Sunrisers Hyderbad Fantasy Tips

Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) faced a rather forgettable defeat to Delhi Capitals in match No.33 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Wednesday. Seeing this, former India opener Virender Sehwag hilariously took a dig at the team.

He advised them to avoid eating balls in a T20 contest. “As Harshad Mehta had said be it market or cricket the biggest risk is not taking any risk. But Hyderabad was playing so sluggishly that even the ball would have said this to them in agony – ‘Maro mujhe…maaro mujhe.’ Is ball something to eat that too in T20? Don’t eat the ball. If you are hungry, eat food,” Sehwag said on Virugiri Dot Com.

“We didn’t start well” – SRH captain Kane Williamson after defeat against DC

Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and opted to bat first where they could manage to put up 134 runs in their allotted 20 overs. Abdul Samad top-scored with 28. While chasing, Shikhar Dhawan scored 42. Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten at 47 whereas Rishabh Pant scored 35* and took the team home with more than 2 overs in hand.

The winning captain, Rishabh Pant was satisfied with his team’s win. He said, “We discussed that we had a good first phase, and we are happy to start the second phase this way. We said the same thing about focusing on the process and giving it 100% every day. It’s a good bowling performance because we thought 150-160 would have been a good total, so 130-something was a good score to restrict them to. We have one of the quickest bowlers in the world so I think they’re great assets to have.”

SRH captain Kane Williamson, after losing the game, said, “We didn’t start well, didn’t register a decent partnership but never got any momentum, some good scores in the back-end, but pretty much 25-30 runs short. We did bowl well, we have defended modest scores in the past, but it wasn’t to be today which was a bit of a shame. It’s been a difficult campaign so far, but we need to enjoy our cricket and don’t put ourselves under pressure – they were excellent, they are both quality internationals, two of the best fast bowlers going around at the moment and they put us under pressure. They got us into hard positions, perhaps if we hadn’t lost early wickets, we could have done differently, but Delhi were outstanding and played some smart cricket. We need to concentrate on the way we play and try to improve.”
