SunRisers Hyderabad beaten by Delhi Capitals

SunRisers Hyderabad beaten by Delhi Capitals by two wickets in the last over. Their defeat in the Eliminator in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday has marked the end of the season.

Their coach, Tom Moody could not continue to keep it together after the team was kicked out of the Indian Premier League. After all, it was generally the fourth time they lost in the Eliminator in the history of Indian Premier League.

Ishant Sharma stormed with his two wickets while Keemo Paul came back to figures of 3/32.

Up to the present time, SunRisers were generally relying on the bowling instead of batting. Defending overall everything their batting line put up. In contrast, this season they lost six out of eight games that were defending.

In summary, they only managed to defend scores of 212 and 231 while the year before they defended five out of nine times.

Additionally, the form of Williamson was what caused additional damage to the SunRisers. Last year he had overall 735 runs over 17 innings, while this year, in contrast, it was 156 runs over 9 innings.

Together with his struggle with fitness, it was difficult for him to get back to work. For that reason, he spent only 130 deliveries at the crease, less than the last three seasons.

Now as Delhi Capitals scored their first ever Indian Premier League playoff victory, they will welcome the defending of champions Chennai Super Kings on Friday.
