Fizz heroics go in vain
Mustafizur Rahman’s scintillating four overs went in vain as Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a six-wicket defeat to the Delhi Daredevils in Raipur yesterday.
Karun Nair top-scored for Delhi with an unbeaten 59-ball 83, smashing eight fours and three sixes.
Mustafizur gave away just 24 runs in his four overs and put on a bowling master class during his last and the innings’ 19th over.
With Delhi requiring 16 from 12 and Carlos Brathwaite on strike, Fizz pulled out his patented cutter, which Brathwaite completely missed. The ball after, the West Indian slashed at another cutter which took a thick edge and Barinder Sran picked up a magical catch.
By the end of the 19th over, Delhi needed 11 from six and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar stepped up. His first four balls yielded five runs, but he was smashed for fours on his final two balls as Delhi just about scraped home.
