IPL: DC beat SRH in 1st Super Over of the season


Delhi Capitals (DC) beat SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in what was the first Super Over of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday at the M.A.Chidambaram Stadium.

SRH, who sent in captain David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, managed to take just seven runs in their Super Over which was bowled by Axar Patel. One run was deducted from SRH’s tally due to captain Warner not putting his bat completely over the crease for the last run.

Captain Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan walked out for the run chase while spinner Rashid Khan bowled for SRH. The batsmen took two runs off the first two balls before Pant hit a four off the third. The next ball, however, went for a dot after which the batsmen stole two runs off the last two balls to take DC over the line.

Brief scores: Delhi Capitals 159/4 in 20 overs (Prithvi Shaw 53, Rishabh Pant 37; Siddharth Kaul 2/31) beat SunRisers Hyderabad 159/7 in 20 overs (Kane Williamson 66 not out, Jonny Bairstow 38; Avesh Khan 3/34) by Super Over.
