Bhuvneshvar Kumar took his 100th wicket for Sunrisers Hyderabad against Delhi Capitals at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. The best thing about the occasion was that even Sunrisers Hyderabad were playing their 100th IPL game. The Indian fast bowler took the wicket of Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer to achieve the milestone.
His team Sunrisers Hyderabad took to Twitter to congratulate him on acheiving this feat.
Even the netizens came forward to appreciate one of India's best death over specialists.
Earlier Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to field first. SRH got two quick wickets as both the Delhi openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan departed without doing much damage. Skipper Shreyas Iyer then added 49 runs for the third wicket with Colin Ingram. Ingram played an important cameo of a 24-ball 40 which included four boundaries and three maximums. Iyer then stitched in a 56-run fourth wicket stand with young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant.
Just when it looked like the Delhi skipper would take his team to good score, he was caught behind by Jonny Bairstow off Bhuvneshvar Kumar. He scored a good 40-ball 45 at a strike rate of 112.50 which helped the Capitals reach a competitive total of 155/7 in their 20 overs. It proved to be enough as Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 39 runs.
