Mitchell Marsh produced one of the finest all-round performances in IPL history but his team, Delhi Capitals, ended up losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad at home on Saturday night.

DC batters again failed to fire in unison. Marsh (63) and Phil Salt (59) struck quick half-centuries and stitched a 112-run partnership to put their team on top despite losing David Warner for a duck.

Marsh, Salt and Axar Patel were the only three DC batters who made any significant contribution as DC finished with 188/6, chasing 197. In fact the trio contributed 141 while the rest managed just 47.

SRH would be pleased with the efforts of their spinners who helped them launch a fight back in the middle overs when it seemed DC would go over the line quite easily.

The top two positions in the race for the orange cap remain with Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Faf du Plessis (422 runs) and Virat Kohli (333 runs).

However, GT opener Shubman Gill has entered the top-three after hitting 49 against KKR at Eden Gardens on Saturday.

Despite having scored as many runs as Kohli, Gill is third because of the RCB superstar’s superior average. Interestingly, both the batters have an identical strike-rate of 142.30.

CSK duo Devon Conway (317) and Ruturaj Gaikwad complete the top-five.

Mohammed Siraj continues to lead the Purple Cap race. Siraj, Rashid Khan, Arshdeep Singh and Tushar Deshpande have taken 14 wickets each.

However, Siraj has a better  economy rate than the other three and hence he’s at the top.

Mohammed Shami took three wickets against KKR to take his tally to 13 scalps and drew level with Varun Chakravarthy. Shami is ahead on the list at fifth spot thanks to a better economy rate.
