 Star spinner Rashid then led a fine bowling display to end with the impressive figures of 4-0-7-3, his best in this season.


The Afghan bowled an astonishing 17 dot balls in his quota of four overs, helping his side bowl out the Capitals for 131 in 19 overs.


Sunrisers (10 points) have now moved up to sixth from seventh position with this win, while the Capitals, who slumped to their third consecutive loss, were pushed down to the third spot with 14 points.

Chasing a stiff target, it was once a moderately extraordinary performance by the the Capitals batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan (0) and Marcus Stoinis (5), who was once elevated to number 3, perished in the first two overs.


Ajinkya Rahane (26) and Shimron Heytmyer (16) quickly started the recovery work, stitching a 40 run stand, the highest for their team. The duo targeted Jason Holder, collecting 22 runs in the sixth over as Delhi reached 54 for two at the end of the Powerplay overs.


Alternatively, Rashid dealt Delhi with twin blows, eliminating both Rahane and Hetmyer in the seventh over. Skipper Shreyas Iyer (7) was once next to depart as wickets continued to tumble at steady intervals.


Seven of Delhi’s batsmen failed to achieve double digits with Rishabh Pant (36) being the top scorer.


While Rashid was once the pick of the bowlers for Sunrisers, Sandeep Sharma (2/27) and T Natarajan (2/26) picked two wickets apiece. Vijay Shankar(1/11), Shahbaz Nadeem (1/8), Holder (1/46) took a wicket each and every.


Earlier, both openers Warner, who looked in good nick, and Saha, playing his second game of the season, went after the Delhi bowlers from the word go.


Fully capitalising on the field restrictions, the duo smashed boundaries (11 fours and two sixes) each and every over to gather 77-runs in the first six overs, the most efficient Poweplay figures of the season.


In the sixth over, Warner smashed the tournament’s leading wicket-taker Kagiso Rabada (0/54) for four boundaries and a six, helping the Sunrisers reach 100 runs in just 8.4 overs.


Till Warner was once taking on the bowlers, Saha played the second one fiddle to perfection.


The Australian celebrated his 34th birthday with a half-century off just 25 balls, hitting two sixes and eight fours at the Dubai International Stadium.


To Delhi’s relief Ravichandran Ashwin (1/35) broke the 107-run opening stand in the 10th over as he dismissed danger man Warner, who was once caught at additional cover by Axar Patel.


With Warner gone, Saha hammered the Capitals bowlers all over the park. The wicketkeeper batsman reached his fifty in style with a boundary. He plundered 12 fours and two sixes before pacer Anrich Nortje (1/37) dismissed him in the 15th over.


Pandey and Kane Williamsion (11 not out) continued the assault on a listless Delhi bowling unit.
