Both of them were bowled by leg spinner Amit Mishra while Manish Pandey, who scored 21 from 17 balls, was the only other SRH batsman to be dismissed.
SRH captain Kane Williamson was rock solid with his 32 not out in 30 balls while Yusuf Pathan did the finish job with an unbeaten 21 from 12 balls.

Amit Mishra was outstanding for Delhi Daredevils with 4-0-19-2 while Avesh Khan was taken to the cleaners, conceding 47 runs in three overs.
