Delhi Capitals VS Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL LIVE SCORE and LATEST UPDATES

  • Time for us to wrap. As always was good to have your company. Hope to see you tomorrow as Royal Challengers Bangalore search for their first win agains the Kolkata Knight Riders. The blog will up at 6:30 pm. Until then, adios.


  • David Warner continues to lead the race for the Orange Cap but Jonny Bairstow is second and quite close to his opening partner. Click here to check out the Orange Cap list.

  • SRH have moved to the top of the IPL 2019 table with the five-wicket win over DC. KXIP are second. Click here to check out the league table.

  • Bairstow: Little less bounce than what we have in Hyderbad. Was a good toss to win. We were able to see how to play on wickets like that. Probably the first such pitch we've come across this season. Bowlers are completely different in both sides. We have shorter guys compared to their three big guys. Really pleased with the start, just going to try and keep going. We have three games in quick succession now and hopefully we keep playing the same brand of cricket.

  • Jonny Bairstow is the Player of the Match

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar, winning captain: It is easy as captain when the team does well and I always believe the captain is as good as the team. We wanted to bowl given how small the ground is, we knew that it would be easier in the second innings. In the second half of the IPL the wickets would be slow and turning all over India and spin would play a big part. Kane Williamson is almost there but we want him to take as much time he needs.

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Mohammad Nabi started the rot with the ball and he now finishes it with a six and a four. Sunrisers bowlers were far more skillful and Bairstow's burst at the top setup the match. Mind boggling selections by Delhi, in hindsight they were 10-15 runs short. Another disappointing shot by Pant, he has gone backwards since his blistering knock at Wankhede Stadium. The Sunrisers bowling attack continues to be the best in business and Bairstow continues to shine at the top. At the end a comfortable victory for the men in Orange, they go to the top of the IPL ladder. 

  • Iyer, DC captain: The last two games have been same. It was tough wicket to play on. They had a bit of an idea how to go about it. We didn't bat well. It's another learning, we should come back positively. Definately we didn't play well from batting perspective. After the first strategic time out I thought 140-150 would have a good total on this wicket and we have some good spinners in our line up as well. In the first few overs we have done well, bowlers have done well. Unfortunately we were short. I needed a little bit of support from someone at the other end from someone in the top 4. But it's a good lesson for us. The way we came back in the second innings was appreciable. The bowlers came up and that is good to see.

    No. of IPL matches Nabi has played for SRH : 7

    No. of IPL matches SRH has won out of those : 7

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad get over the line! Beat Delhi Capitals to win by five wickets

    Nabi has thumped a short and wide delivery from Rabada over deep backward point for a maximum. No nerves in the end as Sunrisers Hyderabad clinch the win in the penultimate over.

  • FOUR! Nabi clears his front leg and goes for a big shot, gets it from the inside half of the bat dragging it wide long on.

  • After 18 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 120/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 8 , Mohammad Nabi 7)

    Pathan rides his luck as he got a leading edge that went high in the air but fell safe as their was no mid on in place. Nabi collects a vital boundary. SRH need 10 off 12. Can a Rabada special help DC comeback into this?

  • FOUR! Morris bowls a slower short delivery into Nabi that rises just around his torso. He is early in the pull but is able to get a tickle down to fine leg fence for a boundary. Important runs for SRH.

  • After 17 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 114/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 7 , Mohammad Nabi 2)

    Rabada comes on to bowl the 17th and Mohammed Nabi has joined Yusuf Pathan in the middle. Both batsmen haven't done anything stupid and that is a surprising now. Three runs off Rabada's over with equation now reading 16 needed off 18. What should have been over by now, especially after the Bairstow's blitzkrieg is now heading for a tense finish. Not an early night for the cricketers or us.

  • After 16 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 111/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 6 , )

    Sunrisers have started an implosion of their own. Half their side is back in the dugout and again find two new batsmen in the middle. Will they huff and puff their way towards the finish line or Delhi will pull out a rabbit out of the hat? Last four overs coming up after the time out. SRH need 19 runs off 24 balls with five wickets in the bank.

  • OUT! Oh dear, it is happening! Deepak Hooda becomes the latest batsman to throw away his wicket while playing an unwanted shot. This is just poor cricket from Sunrisers. Was the googly and Hooda goes down the wicket and tries to play slog sweep, he never got to the pitch of the ball as the ball dipped on him doesn't get enough and Rabada makes no mistake in the deep.

    Hooda c Rabada b Lamichhane 10(11)

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Yusuf Pathan last five IPL innings against DC:

    27*, 59, 10, 42, 40*

  • FOUR! Yusuf Pathan brings his long forearms into play. Stretches forward and sweeps it behind square. Rabada's dive in the deep goes in vain.

  • After 15 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 103/4 ( Deepak Hooda 7 , Yusuf Pathan 1)

    Yusuf Pathan walks out to the middle. Three runs from the over and Axar Patel ends his quota with a wicket of the final over of the match. Can Delhi still trigger a late collapse to pull off an unlikely win. SRH need 27 off 30 balls

  • OUT! Alright then! Now Vijay Shankar departs. He hangs his head low after the shot and knows what has he done. Patel banged the ball short and Vijay was looking to force the ball off the backfoot through the covers. The ball might have stopped a touch and Vijay certainly got the timing all wrong. Shreyas Iyer this time moves across swiftly and snaffles a good low catch.

    Shankar c Shreyas Iyer b Axar 16(21)

  • After 14 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 100/3 ( Vijay Shankar 16 , Deepak Hooda 5)

    Sunrisers reach the 100-run mark in the 14th over. Delhi Capitals had another opportunity of making it two wickets in two over but Iyer spilled a chance at extra cover. Hooda the beneficiary. He gets off the mark with a boundary.

  • DROPPED! Shreyas Iyer has put down a chance at extra cover. Hooda skips down the pitch and drove it aeirally towards extra cover. Straight in and straight out. Was firmly struck but still expect these catches to be taken. Another missed chance for DC.

  • FOUR! Down the leg side from Tewatia and Hooda gets outside the line of the ball by shuffling across, gets low and lap it away to fine leg fence.

  • After 13 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 95/3 ( Vijay Shankar 16 , )

    Ishant Sharma is brought into the attack. He gets the slower one wrong, slipping down the leg side for a wide and keeps angling into the pads a couple of times as Pandey and Vijay work it away for couple of singles before Pandey whips it straight to Prithvi Shaw to deep mid wicket.

  • OUT! Don't know what made Manish Pandey play such a shot? Pandey has simply thrown a massive opporunity of steering his side home and gain some confidence. Was the slower delivery digged in on middle and leg from Ishant and Pandey went for a cross batted swipe and hits it straight to Shaw in the deep.

    Manish Pandey c Prithvi Shaw b Ishant 10(13)

  • After 12 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 90/2 ( Vijay Shankar 14 , Manish Pandey 8)

    Tewatia sends down a tidy over, varying his pace really well here. Lamichhane could borrow the strategy from the fellow spinner. Three runs from the over.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Manish Pandey has been part of winning teams in all the last eight IPL matches which he has played against DC.

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Delhi have missed a trick by not playing Keemo Paul. In the first match against Mumbai Indians, not many picked his slower ball. This is great pitch for medium pacers than can disguise their pace as evident with the Sunrisers bowlers. Also Ishant Sharma is yet to bowl, so clearly team selections has been poor. 

  • After 11 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 87/2 ( Vijay Shankar 13 , Manish Pandey 7)

    With the field spread out, Vijay and Pandey do the sensible thing of working the ball around for singles. They took six of them in Patel's third over. SRH need 43 off 54 balls. Iyer needs couple of quick wickets.

  • After 10 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 81/2 ( Vijay Shankar 10 , Manish Pandey 4)

    Bairstow's blast in a small run chase has made life easier for the batsmen, who have come in, there is no scoreboard pressure and have all the time to get themselves in. Vijay collects his first boundary of the innings and at the halfway stage SRH have in the driver's seat, requiring 48 runs from 60 balls.

  • FOUR! Vijay hits the drive in the air intentionally, lifting over the cover fielder for his first boundary of the innings. Very well executed there.

  • After 9 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 73/2 ( Vijay Shankar 4 , Manish Pandey 2)

    Vijay plays a delightful inside out shot off Lamichanne for a couple. Manish Pandey gets off the mark with a brace as well. Reads the wrong'un and punches to deep extra cover. Time out taken.

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Delhi Capitals in with a sniff with the wicket of Warner. Remember both of the Sunrisers victories have been scripted by the brilliance of Warner and Bairstow. Interesting to see how the Sunrisers middle-order handle this situation. Still feel the Delhi fast bowlers need to bowl more slower balls, the Sunrisers quick men were definitely more skillful on this slow track. 

  • After 8 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 68/2 ( Vijay Shankar 1 , )

    Rabada provides the second wicket. So Delhi Capitals have removed both the SRH openers in the space of two overs. The SRH middle order hasn't spent a lot of time in the middle and Delhi will be looking to expose the frailities. Can they trigger a collapse?

  • OUT! David Warner hits it straight to mid off and has to depart. Rabada bowled it full on middle stump and Warner was created some room by backing away on the leg side and carve it over the covers, couldn't get under it and gives a catch to mid off fielder, where Morris holds on to a low catch.

    Warner c Chris Morris b Rabada 10(18)

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Vijay Shankar has been dismissed only thrice out of his last 10 IPL innings.

  • After 7 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 64/1 ( David Warner 7 , Vijay Shankar 0)

    What Lamichhane, Morris, Axar Patal and Rabada couldn't do, Tewatia has done it by getting rid of the dangerman Jonny Bairstow. Vijay Shankar joins Warner in the middle. SRH need 68 to win off 78 balls.

  • OUT! Tewatia gets the big wicket of Jonny Bairstow. He falls just two short of his fifty. Tewatia's bowls a full floater on middle and leg stump, Bairstow looks to flick it through the leg side but misses it and up goes the finger. Bairstow asked for a review straightaway, perhaps he must have got some bat on that one. The replays show there is nothing on UltraEdge and the ball-tracking confirms the ball would have crashed into the leg stump. What a spectacular innings by YJB!

    Most consecutive 50-plus opening stands in IPL:

    5 - Chris Gayle/KL Rahul

    4 - Gautam Gambhir/Robin Uthappa

    4 - Shikhar Dhawan/David Warner

    4 - David Warner/Jonny Bairstow*

  • After 6 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 62/0 ( David Warner 6 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 47)

    Bairstow is sparing no one here, not even Rabada. So there were a lot of complains of the games ending past the midnight, reckon Bairstow has taken upon himself to provide a solution. Rabada takes a beating in his first over as he concedes 14.

  • FOUR! That has gone off the edge through the vacant first slip, perhaps he opened the face of the bat just a touch and that leads to more frustration of Rabada and DC. Four more runs for Bairstow.

  • FOUR! Bairstow is taking on Rabada here. Pumps the slower one down the ground for another boundary.

  • FOUR! Oh he is sublime touch here. Bairstow simply creammed that one through covers. Just little gentle push that.

  • After 5 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 48/0 ( David Warner 5 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 34)

    Couple of more boundaries in the over. Cannot believe that Warner has been lagging Bairstow in two consecutive games now. Axar's second over costs 12 more runs. One more over left in PP.

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Sunrisers making an conscious to go hard at the bowling at the start. It is deliberate ploy and smart tactics by the Sunrisers.  Also the Sunrisers batsmen have been willing to use their feet compared to the Delhi batsmen who wanted to adopt the sweep shot.  The game is slipping away from Delhi extremely quickly. 

  • FOUR! Bairstow hares down the pitch, and goes after it smashes it down the ground for a boundary. Gets it over the bowler's head for another boundary

  • After 4 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 36/0 ( David Warner 3 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 29)

    Boundaries coming thick and fast from Bairstow's bat. Morris' first over costs 16 runs that is 15 per cent of the target. Three boundaries off the bat, while one runs down to fine leg after a defelcetion from Bairstow's pads.

  • FOUR! Short ball again from Morris and Bairstow is simply relishing this. Smacks it over short fine leg for the third boundary of the over

  • FOUR! Bairstow simply clears the infield on the leg side by simply chipping to the right of mid on and the ball races down to the boundary. Smart batting.


  • FOUR! Morris digs in short and Bairstow is ready for it. Pulls fierecely to deep mid-wicket fence

IPL 12 Match 16 DC vs SRH at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi: Rabada comes on to bowl the 17th and Mohammed Nabi has joined Yusuf Pathan in the middle. Both batsmen haven't done anything stupid and that is a surprising now. Three runs off Rabada's over with equation now reading 16 needed off 18. What should have been over by now, especially after the Bairstow's blitzkrieg is now heading for a tense finish. Not an early night for the cricketers or us.

IPL 2019, DC vs SRH, Today's Match Preview: Delhi Capitals (DC) would look to sort out their lower-order woes as they take on Surisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday in IPL 2019.

DC have won two of their four matches so far but the last two games have seen them struggle with lower order collapses. In their third match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), DC looked in complete control during the chase with Prithvi Shaw batting on 99 only for them to surrender the advantage after Shaw's fall as Kuldeep Yadav defended six in the final over to take the tie into Super Over.

Kagiso Rabada's brilliance in the Super Over saved the day for DC as they secured the win over KKR in the tie break. However, there was no rescue act in their previous match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), DC were once again in control of things at 144 for 3, needing 167 to win but a dramatic collapse saw them lose their remaining seven wickets for merely eight runs to be shot out for 152.

With the presence of host of young stars including captain Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, the challenge for DC will be to avoid repeating same mistakes as they take on SRH, one of the most formidable teams in the league.

DC will also take the road after the SRH tie and that makes the two points even more vital. On the other hand, SRH have won two of their three matches. A team known of their bowling has seen their batting might aid them win matches. While a David Warner blitz helped them chase down a 199-run target against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and then against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) SRH openers Jonny Bairstow and Warner's centuries led Hyderabad to a massive 118-run triumph.

All eyes will be skipper Kane Williamson. The Kiwi player missed the last match due to a niggle as his replacement Mohammad Nabi took four wickets. SRH team management now face a dilemma over Williamson's inclusion.

In 12 matches so far between these two sides, SRH have won eight.
