In the last encounter between these two teams, SunRisers Hyderabad outshined Delhi Daredevils and won the match by seven wickets.

Even though Delhi has Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant to put up a score that creates difficulty for SRH, but they have to stick and perform rock solid in front of the bowling maestros.

However, Delhi do have something positive to take back home from their short-lived stint in season 11 of the Indian Premier League that is the consistent performance by its youngsters - Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer.

Shikhar Dhawan scored 92 not out off 50 balls for Sunrisers while Kane Williamson made 83 not out off 53 balls. But despite this what led to Delhi's undoing was the lack of contributions from its foreign players like Glenn Maxwell with the bat; Liam Plunkett and Trent Boult with the ball.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shikhar Dhawan, Shakib Al Hasan, Manish Pandey, Carlos Brathwaite, Yusuf Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper), Rashid Khan, Ricky Bhui, Deepak Hooda, Siddarth Kaul, T. Natarajan, Mohammad Nabi, Basil Thampi, K Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Sachin Baby, Chris Jorda, Tanmay Agarwal, Shreevats Goswami, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Alex Hales.

Pant, who reached his century off 56 balls with a four through mid-wicket off Siddharth Kaul, hit 15 fours and seven sixes during his stay at the crease.

Their 50 partnership came off 34 balls, and expanded to a century-stand off 62 balls. Prior to this century, he has also scored 3 half centuries in the current season.

It's Williamson's second straight fifty and sixth in the tournament.

Rishabh Pant is only 20 years old but is already showing signs of his enormous talent and rapid development with yet another special performance.

Shakib Al Hasan proved to be the pick of the Sunrisers bowlers with figures of 2 for 27 from his four overs.

But the keeper-batsman then took charge of proceedings as he put on 55 runs off 38 balls for the fourth wicket with Harshal Patel (24). He also became the second youngest to score an IPL hundred.

Interestingly, among batsmen recording the highest percentage of runs in a completed IPL inning, Pant (68.44 %) is now second on the list after Brendon McCullum (71.17%). And we have been playing on tough surfaces, so it was nice to go out and execute our batting plans.
