Jonny Bairstow started from where had he left against Royal Challengers Bangalore as he hit a whirlwind 28-ball 48 to set the runchase for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their Indian Premier League clash against Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday.
Chasing 129, SRH won by 5 wickets with nine balls to spare.
The start from the opening pair of Bairstow and David Warner set the platform for the rest of the batting. Looking to hit everything out of sight, Bairstow put SRH off to a flyer as they reached 62/0 in the first six overs.
Even though SRH lost Bairstow and Warner (10) in quick succession, Vijay Shankar and Manish Pandey settled down to ensure that the scoreboard kept ticking.
