Wriddhiman Saha scored a match winning half-century to make his team SunRisers Hyderabad win over Delhi Capitals. He scored 87 runs off just 45 deliveries, hitting 12 boundaries and two sixes.

Saha put on a century stand with SRH skipper David Warner, who also scored a half-century.

After the win, he also took Twitter and posted a few pictures from the game and wrote "If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade! Congratulations to the entire @SunRisers team!"

Saha was brought into the side to keep wickets as SRH made three changes and left out England wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow who made way for Kane Williamson.

Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to bowl.

Saha and Warner notched a 100-run stand in the 10th over.

Saha was looking set for a hundred but in a bid to accelerate, he miss hit one to Shreyas Iyer and got out for 87.

A cameo from Manish Pandey then powered SRH to an imposing total of 219 for two from their allotted 20 overs.
