Despite Pant's 128, Delhi Daredevils lose to Hyderabad

Earlier, while Pant ultimately lifted Delhi up to a competitive score, he was a big contributor to their early struggles, guilty of running out two of his batting partners - he has now been involved in four run-outs in this year's IPL. "There were some tough periods, we needed to soak that up but Shikhar was outstanding, he showed intent from ball one, it was a terrific knock", Williamson said in praise of his partner.

Pant, however continued his onslaught as he launched Shakib for a massive six to bring up his half century in 36 balls even as the out-of-form Glenn Maxwell (9) remained a mere spectator to the southpaw's fireworks. Both did not make any mistake in admonishing loose balls and making it easy to reach the target without any risk.

The Delhi bowlers started losing the plot right after the powerplay when the right-left duo of Williamson and Dhawan propelled the Sunrisers to 51/1 before racing to 91/1 midway into the innings.

Pant, now the orange cap holder as leading run-scorer in the tournament, smashed 15 fours and seven sixes in a stunning 128 not out off 63 balls - his final 73 runs full of improvised scoops and shovels taking just 27 deliveries - as Delhi posted a testing 187-5 from their 20 overs.
