Rashid Khan was the pick of the bowlers returning with magical figures of 3-7 in 4 overs. Sandeep Sharma and T Natarajan also chipped in with two wickets each.

It was the leg spinner from Afghanistan who had played a defining role with the ball in the first match between the two teams in IPL 2020 too. Batting first in Abu Dhabi, SRH, powered by three significant batting performances by their overseas batsmen - David Warner - 45 (33), Jonny Bairstow - 53 (48) and Kane Williamson - 41 (26) - mustered a par 162 for 4. DC were in the hunt but Rashid Khan’s brilliant 3-14 in 4 overs in the middle overs helped restrict them 147 for 7 handing SRH a 15-run victory.
