“I’m happy I got selected for the Tests in Australia,” said Saha after leading SRH to a much-needed win.
Delhi failed to chase down the massive target of 220 as they were bundled out for 131, stumbling to a heavy defeat. For SRH, Rashid Khan scalped three wickets while Sandeep Sharma and T Natarajan took two wickets each.

With this win, Sunrisers Hyderabad have now moved to sixth place in the points table with 10 points from 12 matches. On the other hand, Delhi slipped to the third spot with 14 points from 12 matches.
“I got the opportunity for the second time this year and took my chances in the powerplay. Initially, the ball was holding a bit but I took my chances and went after it after the pitch eased out…We are looking forward to winning the last two matches…that’s our target now,” Saha told host broadcaster Star Sports at the post-match presentation.
Saha top-scored with 87 runs for Hyderabad, enabling his team to put up the big total of 219/2 on the board. The wicketkeeper-batsman was earlier named in India’s 18-member squad for the upcoming Test series against Australia.

Saha and SRH skipper David Warner (66) led Sunrisers’ charge to set Delhi a big target.
Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson remained unbeaten on 44 and 11 respectively, while Anrich Nortje returned with figures of 1-37 in his four overs for Delhi.
Hyderabad will next lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
