This is the second time SRH have won an IPL match when David Warner scored less than 10 runs

Kane Williamson is the 'Man of the Match' for his effort of 89 off 51 balls in his first game of the tournament!

Angelo Mathews today:
 
Batting: Runs - 31, Balls - 23, 4s - 2, 6s -1 
Bowling: Runs - 41, Balls - 18, 4s -2, 6s - 3

Poor all round execution from DD all round. Bowling looked ineffective without Shahbaz Nadeem. But how did they ever imagine chasing down 191 with Chris Morris not facing a single ball? Ridiculous strategy.

After 20 overs,Delhi Daredevils 176/5 ( Shreyas Iyer 50 , Chris Morris 0)

Kaul to bowl the final over. Just two off the first ball of the over, with Mathews not quite connecting in his attempted slog towards the leg side. SIX! The Sri Lankan connects perfectly this time, with Kaul failing to get the yorker right. Kaul makes up for it in the third ball, getting his yorker right this time. Gets the ball to angle into the batsman. Dot in the fourth ball, with the 26-year-old beating Mathews' defence with an inswinger. It should be SRH's win now, unless he bowls a no-ball. Mathews is dismissed in the fifth ball, top-edging a slow short ball to long-on. Iyer collects a single off the last ball to get to his half-century, though he hardly celebrates as his side end up on the losing side. 


Sunrisers Hyderabad win by 15 runs!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has taken atleast two wickets in every match before today in this IPL.

OUT! Mathews looks to slog the slow short ball down the ground, but ends up top-edging it to Jordan stationed at wide long-on! DD 175/5, needing an impossible 17 off the last ball.

Ridiculous strategy from DD that Chris Morris is still sitting in the dugout while they need 4 runs per ball. If Pant got out for a duck, Morris needed to come out soon. Didn't happen and adds to DD's woes here. 

Apr 19, 2017 - 23:31 (IST)

After 19 overs,Delhi Daredevils 168/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 48 , Angelo Mathews 25)

Bhuvi to bowl the crucial penultimate over. Couple of runs to start the over off, with Mathews hitting it towards the midwicket region. FOUR! Iyer steers a yorker towards the third man boundary, with the fielder stationed inside the circle failing to stop it. Single off the last ball, with 10 coming off the over. Delhi still have a chance in the last over, with these two still around. 

Delhi Daredevils need 24 to win from 6 balls. 

Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to continue their three-match winning run at home when they face a spirited Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) contest at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

All of Hyderabad's three wins have come here and they won their last match on Tuesday, defeating Kings XI Punjab by five runs. They have lost both their away matches played so far, which suggests that they really thrive at home.

However, their might will come under serious challenge against Delhi, who defeated Punjab by more than 50 runs before losing to Kolkata Knight Riders by four wickets in a match decided in the last over.

Packed with young batsmen like Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi's strength lies in their array of talented seam-bowling all-rounders. The likes of Chris Morris, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews and Pat Cummins provide the depth and balance to the side. But the exciting team sometimes faces an absence of a pivot around which the team will bat around.

Captain Zaheer Khan has shown that despite his international retirement, he remains one of the best exponents of seam bowling. Supporting him in the bowling attack will be Mohammed Shami and veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

Not only Delhi's bowling but also their batting faces tough challenges against defending champions Hyderabad, who boast one of the most balanced teams in the tournament.

In Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hyderabad have two of India's best shortest format medium pacers. Bhuvneshwar's ability to mix seam with yorkers and blockholes at both the start and at the death overs has been high quality stuffs in T20 cricket. He is currently the highest wicket-taker with 15 scalps. Meanwhile, Hyderabad's newly acquired Afghan spin pair of Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi has been impressive.

"Sunrisers are known for their bowling strength and defending low totals," Bhuvneshwar said after his team defended a total of 159/6 against Punjab.

In batting, though they have strong batting line-up, they have been so far reliant on captain David Warner to show them the way. The Australian left-handed opener is currently leading batting charts in the tournament so far with 235 runs. His opening partner Shikhar Dhawan too is in decent form, scoring 135 runs.

However, Yuvraj Singh (93 runs), Deepak Hooda (50) need to step up, while Australian Moises Henriques will be asked to deliver both with the ball and the bat.
