Kane Williamson of Sunrisers Hyderabad bats against Delhi Daredevils. Here's how the big moments of the game played out.

Both Hyderabad and Punjab had very good starts and they will have to repeat those heroics as the campaign moves into the middle part. Warner couldn't control his execution off the good length delivery that swung late and it went straight to Amit Mishra. That ended a 136-run partnership for the second wicket - the second highest stand for the Sunrisers after the 137 raised by Dhawan and David Warner against the Gujarat Lions at Rajkot past year.

Blackcaps skipper Kane Williamson has ended almost four weeks on the sideline with a match-winning 89 for his Indian Premier League team.

"We threw the ball to the youngster and he came out on top".

This was probably because his record in the IPL doesn't match up to his usual standards. The Kiwi looked comfortable against both seam and spin and took on the role of an aggressor from Dhawan. The New Zealand captain played an array of interesting, well-angled shots and raced ahead of Dhawan despite coming in later.

Dhawan danced his way through the 50-ball innings that was decorated with seven fours and a six.

They were involved in a steadying partnership of 60 runs for the fourth wicket that lent some respectability to the team total.

Bowling- On the contrary, the Sunrisers bowling attack is running like a well-oiled machine, spearheaded by Bhuvneshwar Kumar's dream form. He hit five times as many against Delhi Daredevils on a used pitch, and led Sunrisers to 191 for 4.

In their last home game, the Delhi Daredevils puzzlingly dropped Shahbaz Nadeem, their most economical bowler, for Mohammed Shami.

Dhawan was dismissed by Morris for 70 off 50 balls, but by then the job was done. Siddharth Kaul and Yuvraj Singh took a wicket each. Moises Henriques and Deepak Hooda remained not out on 12 and nine respectively. However, it wasn't a great start. The youngster finished with figures of 2 for 39, the best for his side. The visitors were in the game till the 10th over when they lost their second wicket after a 71-run stand. In fact, this is the highest Powerplay score against Sunrisers. Nair was dismissed in a run out when they ran for picking up a second run -What they can definitely conclude in hindsight was a rather unnecessary one. The next delivery, Rishabh Pant was out for a first-ball duck as Delhi were reduced to 86 for 3 with Warner taking an easy catch. The opener was out for 42 off 33 in an attempt to accelerate. Shikhar Dhawan took over the initiative to score quick runs after Williamson's dismissal and managed to get a few meaty blows out.

Sent into bat, Sunrisers Hyderabad scored 159 for six with skipper David Warner hitting 70 off 54 balls. Needing 24 runs from the final over, Delhi made a valiant attempt but ended up 15 runs short in the end.
