IPL 2017: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s swashbuckling all-rounder Yuvraj Singh played a brilliant knock against Delhi Daredevils at Ferozeshah Kotla stadium in Delhi, on Tuesday. Yuvraj has been in good form but a big innings from him was due. Yuvraj took his time initially on a slow wicket at Kotla but once he got his eye in, the stylish left-hander smashed Delhi bowlers all round the park, making them look ordinary.
It wasn’t an easy pitch to bat because the ball was holding up and not coming onto the bat like it usually does at Kotla. Yuvi batted for 41 balls and smashed 70 unabated runs. During his innings, he smashed 11 fours and 1 six.
While Yuvraj Singh was busy stroking Delhi bowlers all around the park, Twitterati welcomed his brilliant knock with a flood of congratulatory tweets. In fact, Yuvraj Singh was one of the most trending topics on Twitter during the match.

160 has been a threshold Delhi have struggled to score or chase. Should have been able to keep Hyderabad to this but for poor fielding
