Dhawan, Williamson Help Sunrisers Edge Ahead in

Chasing a daunting total of 188, which also happens to be their highest successful run chase, Sunrisers overhauled it in 18.5 overs and lost just one wicket in the course. Rishabh played an unbeaten 128 off 63 balls at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

Delhi Daredevils: Prithvi Shaw, Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Vijay Shankar, Liam Plunkett, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Shahbaz Nadeem, Trent Boult. Some thought Shikhar Dhawan would be the new skipper, but in an exclusive interview to NDTV, the three high profile coaches of the franchise Tom Moody, VVS Laxman and Muttiah Muralitharan spoke about how Williamson was the first and best choice to replace Warner.

An early dismissal for Sunrisers' opener Alex Hales (14 off 10) may have caused an upsurge in the spirits of Delhi Daredevils against table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad, but in terms of encouragement, that was all the hosts had for the entire course of the visitors' innings. SRH are also on a winning run of 5 successive games, their best in any season of the IPL. Williamson was not far behind as he breezed to his sixth fifty-plus score of the competition. Shikhar added 92 in 50 balls, while kane summed up with a four and ends up with 83 in 53 balls. Together, Pant-Dhawan-Williamson scored 303* runs of 166 balls in the game. DD, on the other hand, are nearly out of the contest as even if they win all of their remaining games, they will finish with 14 points provided that they win all games.

Who's who in the Cannes film festival jury
Kristen Stewart - now an established Cannes favourite - spoke cryptically of her plan to assess the films. "I hope so", she said. And he has brought Star Warsback to Cannes for the megawatt premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story .

A striking contrast to the bludgeoning, unbeaten 66-ball 128 that Pant made for DD, the highest by a batsman this season that also saw him race to the top of the run-scorers' list. Rishabh Pant lit up the Delhi night-sky with some incredible hitting, but was clearly not enough to keep his team afloat.

He, however, was involved in two run outs in the inning - first of skipper Shreyas Iyer (3 off 8) and Harshal Patel (24 off 17, 2 sixes).

SRH continued their great run in IPL 2018 on Thursday as they thrashed DD to stay atop the table.

Oman draws Japan in tough Asian Cup group
The team is now lagging behind relatively uncompetitive Asian teams compared to its best FIFA Ranking of 37th in 2004. He's going to develop at a faster rate than I or others did. "Many have not seen Bahrain and Thailand play".

Pant sent the ball out for another four in the nineteenth over to reach his maiden IPL century after connecting well with a Siddharth Kaul delivery. Delhi didn't learn from SRH's mistakes; the slower balls were taken for runs, and they didn't pick that up.

Delhi started off weak in the campaign managing just one win among a flurry of defeats.
