HYDERABAD: Sunrisers Hyderabad rode on Kane Williamson’s attacking knock of 89 and some brilliant bowling at the death as to beat Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs in their Indian Premier League match here on Wednesday.
 
Electing to bat, Hyderabad posted a challenging 191 for four courtesy Williamson’s 89 off just 51 balls and his 136-run stand for the second wicket with opener Shikhar Dhawan (70), and then restricted Delhi to 176 for five to maintain their unbeaten run at home.
 
With their fourth successive win at home, Hyderabad jumped to second spot with eight points from six matches, from four wins and two losses.
 
Chasing 192 for a win, Delhi were in the hunt as they reached 56 for one at the end of six powerplay overs with Sanju Samson (42) and Karun Nair (33) going great guns though they lost Sam Billings (13) early on.
 
But once Samson and Nair were out, Delhi innings lost their way and the asking rate piled up. They needed 65 from the final five overs but could only score 49 with the Hyderabad bowlers coming up with a fine bowling at the death.
 
Needing 24 runs from the final over, Delhi made a valiant attempt but ended up 15 runs short in the end.
 
For Hyderabad, Moham­med Siraj took two wickets for 39 runs while Siddarth Kaul and Yuvraj Singh grabbed a wicket each.
 
Earlier, Williamson smashed a brilliant 89 off just 51 balls and a shared a classy partnership with Dhawan (70) as Sunrisers posted a mammoth 191 for four in their 20 overs.
 
Electing to bat, their captain David Warner fell early in the second over for just four but Williamson and Dhawan treated the home supporters with some breathtaking shots to take the home side to a challenging total.
 
Playing in his first match of the season, Williamson was the more aggressor of the duo as he hit six fours and five sixes in his 51-ball knock before he was out in the 17th over.
 
Dhawan, on the other hand, hit seven fours and a six in his 50-ball innings.
Yuvraj did not contribute much with the bat as he was out for three after facing four balls. Moises Henriques and Deepak Hooda remained not out on 12 and nine respectively.
 
For Delhi, pacer Chris Morris bowled a superb spell, grabbing four wickets while giving away 26 runs. He was on a hat-trick in the 19th overs after taking the wickets of Dhawan and Yuvraj but Hooda denied him the feat.
 
New Zealander Williamson was the star of the Sunrisers innings and his 136-run partnership with Dhawan for the second wicket the highlight of the Hyderabad innings.
 
Coming at the fall of Warner in the second over, Williamson took just a few deliveries to guage the pitch before opening up with his shots. He hit two consecutive sixes off Angelo Matthews in the seventh over before to take the Hyderabad score to 80 for one at the halfway mark.
 
Williamson took 19 runs from Amit Mishra in the 14th over with two sixes in that over before being out in the 17th over. 
 
Dhawan and Yuvraj fell in consecutive deliveries in the 19th over but Hooda and Henriques took 17 runs from the final over bowled by Zaheer Khan to take the score past 190.
