Williamson continues run feast in IPL

Williamson continues run feast in IPL

The win sees the Sunrisers become the first side to cement their position in this year's IPL playoffs, while the Daredevils' season is all but over. Yet in the three games they have played at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi the Sunrisers have won twice.

Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Gautam Gambhir, Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Daniel Christian, Jayant Yadav, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane, Naman Ojha, Sayan Ghosh, Liam Plunkett, Junior Dala. Dhawan scored 92 off 50 balls while Williamson contributed 83 off 53 balls.

Delhi stay rock bottom of the IPL table after an eighth loss in 11, while Sunrisers' ninth win in 11 moves them four points clear of the Chennai Super Kings in second, though having played a game more. Despite their batsmen failing to come to the party, bowlers have compensated for them on numerous occasions to defend scores as low as 118. Two of their most-bankable players i.e. Dhawan and Williamson put up a display of class and big shots - whenever opposition bowlers bowled the loose deliveries. The reason for SRH's dominance in the league has been their bowling attack and that is something that even skipper Kane Williamson agreed to recently.

Pant, who was involved in two run-outs, hit seven sixes and 15 boundaries in his scintillating knock but was naturally dejected at his team's failure to reach the playoffs. Delhi's open batting is going through with huge ups and downs.

WestJet Pilots Overwhelmingly Vote to Take Strike Action
In Air Canada, on this occasion, said that will be happy to provide airfreight services, if WestJet pilots decide to strike.

Shaw mistimed a pull off a short ball and Dhawan latched on to it at cover.

Shakib delivered Roy the exact next ball using a beauty which flipped out only enough to take the edge towards the wicketkeeper.

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. He got towards the a hundred in a similar manner, muscling a full throw from Kaul for over mid wicket. The way Pant took on the likes of Shakib, Kaul and Bhuvenshwar Kumar was commendable. Two of those scoops were in the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar who proved to be the most expensive bowler for Sunrisers, leaking 51 runs in four overs. Pant, however, has been given chance in the India A squad for One-Day tri-series in England. It barely scraped past Rajasthan Royals in its last home game a week ago, winning by four runs under the Duckworth-Lewis method as it conceded 146 runs in 12 overs. Another one goes, complete howler by both the batsmen. It was a 176-run partnership, off just 102 balls after Alex Hales fell early.

Raina's scores in IPL 11, so far, read 4, 14, 46, 54, 11, 76, 1, 31, and 25 which really does not satisfy the eyes as people expect a lot from a batsman of his caliber.
