After being put into bat, SRH posted a mammoth total of 219/2 on the board, thanks to the 107-run opening stand between David Warner (66 off 34 balls) and Wriddhiman Saha (87 of 45). Manish Pandey (44 off 31) provided them with the late flourish.
Rishabh Pant (36 of 35 balls) top-scored for DC as they were bundled out for a meagre 131. The franchise from the national capital was never in the game. SRH’s star spinner Rashid was the wrecker in chief but Sandeep Sharma and T Natarajan finished with two apiece as the team outplayed its opponents in every department of the game.
