New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in the Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Sunday. With this win, DC have sealed a spot in the playoffs, where they will be facing defending champions Mumbai Indians.
This is the second year in a row that the Orange Army has been knocked out by Delhi Capitals in the qualifiers of the tournament. Chasing a target of 190, Hyderabad got off to a poor start, losing its opener David Warner for just 2 in the second over of the match. Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg briefly steadied the innings but fell in quick succession for 21 and 17 respectively in the fifth over of the match. Williamson held the fort after top order collapsed, but the asking rate remained a worry for Hyderabad. The two ran the team close to the total but could not sail through and were dismissed in the final overs.
