Visakhapatnam: Half centuries from opener Shreyas Iyer (60) and captain J.P. Duminy (54) guided the Delhi Daredevils to post a competitive total of 167/4 in 20 overs in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the ACA-VDCA Stadium here on Saturday.

Opting to bat, Daredevils did not start well as they lost opening batsman Mayank Agarwal (1) cheaply in only the third over. But a 78-run second-wicket partnership between Iyer and Duminy revived the innings. The two performances were the only notable contributions from the Daredevils batsmen.

Iyer played a brilliant innings of 40 balls which included five sixes and three boundaries while South African Duminy hit five boundaries and two sixes.

Star batsman Yuvraj Singh, who was purchased by the Delhi franchise for a record Rs.16 crore, failed to click as he was caught while batting on 9.

Sri Lankan Angelo Mathews (15 not out) and wicketkeeper-batsman Kedar Jadhav (19 not out) played small cameos towards the end to propel the score beyond 160.

Medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers as he was the only one from Sunrisers players to end with an economy rate of less than six per over. Bhuvneshwar, Dale Steyn, Praveen Kumar and Ashish Reddy all picked up a wicket each.
