21 games have passed in the 10th season of the IPL, and the table has begun to take shape. The defending champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad, returned near the top of the table with a 15-run win over Delhi Daredevils.

After winning the toss and batting first, David Warner’s men put in an imposing target of 192 for the opponents to chase down. In response, Delhi started well, but couldn’t get over the line due to some tight bowling from Hyderabad in the end.

Without further ado, here are 5 moments from this match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe signature range of body perfumes:

#1 Williamson’s willow’s magic

It was about time that the IPL was bestowed by some Kiwi magic and Kane Williamson provided us with just that with a whimsical innings of 89 runs in 51 balls. In the first ever game of the IPL, it was a New Zealander who set the stage ablaze with an immaculate 158-run innings for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, after Brendan McCullum, if there is any other Kiwi player who has made the IPL his own, it is Kane Williamson. The supremely talented batsman has shown his array of batting skills over the years for his nation and displayed the same potency with the bat today.

With 5 sixes and 6 boundaries, the New Zealand captain built the innings for the Sunrisers along with an inspired Shikhar Dhawan, making it a moment that won’t fade away.
