Unfortunately, the Delhi Daredevils made a decision to follow the Royal Challengers Bangalore and are now at the bottom of the table.
ALSO READ: Sunrisers skipper Kane Williamson is certainly able The duo compiled an unbeaten 176-run stand in 17 overs, never breaking sweat and just playing conventional cricketing strokes.
Williamson struck an unbeaten 83 off 53 balls as the Sunrisers comfortably chased down the Delhi Daredevils' 187-5 in Delhi to remain at the top of the IPL ladder.
In reply, Dhawan and Williamson stitched a match-winning 172 runs partnership for the second wicket to take Sunrisers through past the tricky total. He hit Bhuvneshwar for 43 off just 11 balls - the most by any batsman against Bhuvneshwar in a T20 game, and the highest by a batsman off a bowler in a match this season.
By the end of the fourteenth over, the visitors crossed 150 runs only to make matters worse for Delhi. Delhi Daredevils challenged by making 187/5 in 20 overs after batting first.
Opening alongside Prithvi Shaw, Jason Roy greeted the opponents with the first boundary of the match after connecting with a Sandeep Sharma delivery in the second over.
We have seen in the past that how Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were persisted with for a longer period despite a string of mediocre scores but eventually it paid off.
But the next over changed that.
But a determined Pant went through to his fourth fifty of the tournament a ball later with a muscled six over deep midwicket off Shakib. Soon after both batsmen Harshal Patel and Pant had settled, Patel was run out for 24 runs.
Earlier, while Pant ultimately lifted Delhi up to a competitive score, he was a big contributor to their early struggles, guilty of running out two of his batting partners - he has now been involved in four run-outs in this year's IPL.
"For the likes of Pant, Ishan Kishan (who scored a 21-ball 52), time will come".
Rishabh Pant smashed a century against SRH on Thursday.
Rishabh Pant (128*) then came out at No. 4 and made his intentions very clear right from the outset with a hat-trick of boundaries against pacer Siddarth Kaul (4-48-0). Pantstorm! Pant played an exceptional inning but looks like he needs running lessons! Which he did by smashing Bhuvneshwar. Andre Russell had hit 68 runs off just 20 balls - the highest by a batsman at the death in an IPL innings - against Chennai Super Kings earlier this season.
