Keemo Paul, Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada bowled Delhi Capitals to a 39-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Delhi Capitals moved up to No.2 after winning their 5th match of the 2019 Indian Premier League.Delhi Capitals have now won 3 successive matches in the 2019 IPL while SRH have lost 3 successive matches. The stunning win was shaped by Paul who whose 3 wickets included the key wickets of Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson and Kagiso Rabada who dismissed David Warner and Vijay Shankar off successive deliveries.Sunrisers Hyderabad had got off to a strong start to their chase of 156. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow added 72 for the opening wicket before Bairstow fell to Keemo Paul. Two overs later, Kane Williamson was spectacularly caught by Rabada off Paul.David Warner was still at the crease but after the top-3, Sunrisers Hyderabad have a fair few young batsmen. Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan were left out and it was the perfect opportunity for Ricky Bhui to make an impact. However, he only managed 7 off 12 balls and became Keemo Paul’s third victim.Keemo Paul was the pick of the bowlers for Delhi Capitals with figures of 3 for 17 off 4 overs.David Warner hit his 4th fifty of the 2019 IPL but he was done in by Kagiso Rabada for a 47-ball 51. At 106 for 4, the SRH chase had been well and truly rocked. Rabada removed Vijay Shankar off the very next ball of the 17th over.In the 18th over, Chris Morris removed Deepak Hooda and Rashid Khan off successive deliveries as Delhi Capitals edged closer to victory.advertisementIt was a sensational win for Delhi Capitals who had struggled all of last season. This win over Sunrisers Hyderabad now takes DC to 2nd in the points tally.We’re all @PrithviShaw right now #SRHvDC #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/Cog5tjThPP Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) April 14, 2019Earlier in the evening, Sunrisers Hyderabad did well to restrict a power-packed Delhi Capitals batting unit to 155 for 7. Kane Williamson returned to lead SRH and his tactical acumen was on display immediately.Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan fell to Khaleel Ahmed inside the first 4 overs before Colin Munro and DC skipper Shreyas Iyer (45) staged a recovery with a 49-run stand for the 3rd wicket.Colin Munro was looking dangerous but he fell to Abhishek Sharma for a 24-ball 40 in the 8th over before he could do more damage. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, two naturally aggressive batsmen, were unable to score freely in the middle overs.Iyer fell to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 16th over and Rishabh Pant became Khaleel Ahmed’s third victim in the next over.Also Read | SRH vs DC Live Score, IPL 2019: Paul gets Bairstow to break 72-run opening standAlso Read | Imran Tahir proves age is just a number with 4-wicket haul vs KKRAlso Read | IPL 2019: Suresh Raina, Imran Tahir star as CSK smash KKR at Eden GardensAlso Watch | KKR head coach Jacques Kallis explains why he is in awe of Andre Russel
This is probably about the 14th post I’ve written on how much money Joe Wickline owes Oklahoma State (#blessed). Hopefully it is the last.Wickline and Oklahoma State have apparently settled for $250,000 over whether Wikline made a lateral move to UT a few years ago. Here’s the Associated Press.Oklahoma State sued Wickline — who was fired by Texas on Dec. 12 — in 2014 for nearly $600,000, arguing he made a lateral move to Texas and didn’t take a promotion with “play-calling duties” as stated in his previous contract. The lawsuit was settled for $250,000, Oklahoma State spokesman Gary Shutt said.“We are glad to reach a settlement and wish Coach Wickline the best,” Shutt said.Previously the suit was thought to have been for $300,000. Texas seems glad it’s over as well.“The university was not a party to the lawsuit and does not have details regarding settlement terms,” Texas spokesman Gary Susswein said. “UT welcomes the news that the parties have reached an agreement.”This is all fun and games for Texas and Oklahoma State until Bob Stoops scoops Wickline up in January and Perine and Mixon rush for 9,000 yards next season.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
