Pant, the team's top scorer this season, is also the sixth highest run-grosser this term and a big-scoring effort in the game can make him a genuine contender for the Orange Cap, reserved for the IPL's top scorer. Pant made his first century in after IPL 20 years and 218 days.
But Pant was once again guilty of another mix-up, this time selling Harshal Patel short.
Most of the match-winning performances have in fact come from Indian players, in most cases from youngsters who are yet to establish themselves in worldwide cricket - Shubhman Gill, Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant and K Gowtham - to name a few.
Hyderabad, who lead the table with 18 points from 11 games, showed tonight that they could not just defend small totals but also chase down stiff targets. DD, on the other hand, are nearly out of the contest as even if they win all of their remaining games, they will finish with 14 points provided that they win all games.
People dead, tens missing after dam bursts in Nakuru

Israel missiles hit Syria military bases
Iran has increasingly strengthened its military presence in Syria , something which Israel considers a direct threat. Repeated airstrikes attributed to Israel have killed Iranian fighters and prompted threats of reprisal from Tehran.
Walmart changes opioid prescription policies
The stores are also providing additional education and training for their pharmacists on opioids and noloxone. Walmart said it offers DisposeRx , a powder for disposing of opioids, free in all of its pharmacies.
Delhi's woes this season has been compounded by an inconsistent opening partnership, despite teenager Prithvi Shaw going great guns blazing at the top.
While Shreyas has aggregated 351 runs at a strike rate of 149.36 (four fifties), Pant has 393 runs to his name this season with three half-centuries. SRH also became the first team to qualify for the playoffs.
The scare for DD will be the spin bowing trio of Rashid Khan, Yusuf Pathan and Shakib al Hasan. SRH, undoubtedly, have the most risky bowling line-up in the tournament.
After winning the toss DD chose to bat first.
Delhi Daredevils: Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Glenn Maxwell, Shreyas Iyer (captain), Vijay Shankar, Daniel Christian, Rahul Tewatia, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mohammed Shami, Trent Boult, Chris Morris, Colin Munro, Amit Mishra, Prithvi Shaw, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Jayant Yadav, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Manjot Kalra, Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane, Naman Ojha, Sayan Ghosh, Liam Plunkett.
Now coming back to today's match, the Daredevils who are all but out of the contest will purely play to salvage some pride today.
