Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), who have been unstoppable while playing at home, of late have been shaky in away games. It was evident when Hyderabad slipped to another defeat away from home, as they lost to Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 6 wickets, in match 40 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Tuesday. Courtesy a fantastic effort from Yuvraj, Hyderabad posted a challenging total of 185 for 3 wickets, but failed to defend it as Delhi chased the target down comfortably, with five balls to spare. SRH skipper David also gave credit to the Delhi batsmen, who played smart to out shadow Yuvraj’s stellar knock of an unbeaten 41-ball 70.

“The way Yuvi finished off was fantastic. They [Delhi] played unreally. They came out with intent in the first six [overs] and with the way they finished, credit to them. Definitely after the first couple of overs when the spikes were going in, the wicket looked slow. The slower balls were holding up and that is where we needed to be predictable. The quicker ball was coming on nicely. There wasn’t too much dew and no excuses. They batted fantastically. We have a couple of days before two games at home,” he said, as reported by IANS.

“I am a bit disappointed to get out after getting a start, but glad to get some runs finally and hoping to kick on from here. I think the bowlers gave it their all, and if we had caught that catch they wouldn’t have got that far. We told ourselves, we are a young team, and we should play like a young team. Go out there, play without fear,” he concluded.
