IPL 2019: 30th Match, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals – Match Review; It proved to be yet another decisive day for the Delhi Capitals as they stormed to No 2 in the points table of Vi vo IPL 12 after registering a convincing 39 runs victory against the much fancied Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 30th match of the competition. It was some superb bowling by Kagiso Rabada and Keemo Paul which sealed the deal for Delhi Capitals in the end.
The turning point of the match
It was the exceptional spell from Windies all-rounder Keemo Paul which proved to be the difference between the two franchises. He used the slower deliveries to perfect and kept on bamboozling the Hyderabad batters. His wickets tally included the two prized scalps of Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals- 2nd innings
Chasing a relatively modest target of 156 runs, Sunrisers Hyderabad began pretty well courtesy opening duo Jonny Bairstow and David Warner. Bairstow, in particular, looked in complete control of proceedings and played some delightful shots to get going. Warner took his time at the other end but Bairstow found the boundaries on a consistent basis which kept Hyderabad in the box seat.
It was Keemo Paul who deceived Jonny Bairstow with a brilliant slower delivery after he had put on a stand of 72 runs with David Warner. The match should have been sealed after a great opening stand. However, there was a huge collapse for Hyderabad in the next 9 overs as they lost all their 10 wickets for just 44 runs.
Keemo Paul started off the slide for Hyderabad with the wicket of Bairstow. Kane Williamson was also dismissed pretty early by Paul and Hyderabad looked in trouble. None of the batters from there on managed to make an impact as wickets kept falling on a consistent basis. From a position of strength, Hyderabad had their backs to the wall.
Eventually, Kagiso Rabada put the final nail in the coffin when he bagged the most important wicket of David Warner who has been the most consistent batsmen for Hyderabad in the tournament so far along with Jonny Bairstow. While Bairstow made 52, Warner was dismissed for 41. However, none of the other 9 batters could go beyond the double figures as Delhi Capitals strolled home by 39 runs.

DC lost Prithvi Shaw pretty early as Khaleel Ahmed beat for pace and bounce. Shikhar Dhawan also fell in quick succession as he was dismissed by a brilliant short delivery from Khaleel Ahmed. Colin Munro who was playing his first game for the Delhi Capitals took Khaleel Ahmed to the cleaners after his first couple of wickets.
He smashed the left-arm pacer for a six and a four to get going and added a couple more when he returned for his 2nd spell. In his first game, Colin Munro made 40 of 24 deliveries which included 4 fours and 3 sixes. He was dismissed by the 18-year-old Abhishek Sharma.
