LIVE NEWS and UPDATES
Samson & Pant power Delhi to emphatic win over high flying Hyderabad. Along the way we may have had a glimpse into future of Indian cricket— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) May 12, 2016
DD win by 7 wickets!
A commanding display from DD. Mustafizur gives away just 3 runs in the 16th over but then Pant takes on the Bangdesh pacer as he smashes one over mid off and then whips another over deep mid-wicket. In between he clobbers one over deep mid-wicket off Bhuvneshwar. Samson then finishes it off in style as he hammers a pull over deep mid-wicket off Yuvraj to win it for DD.
After 15 overs, Delhi 114/3 ( Sanju Samson 21 , Rishabh Pant 18)
Samson and Pant have done a good steadying job so far. 23 runs in the last 3 overs. Pant took on Mustafizur in the 14th over where he smacked him for a six over wide long on and then whipped one through mid-wicket. SRH had a chance to get the wicket of Samson but Henriques at mid-wicket let it through his hands. Just 33 needed off 30 now. Samson and Pant need to bat sensibly and see the visitors through.
After 12 overs,Delhi 91/3 ( Sanju Samson 13 , Rishabh Pant 3)
Henriques has turned it around for SRH. He sends back Nair and De Kock in the 10th over and gives away just 4 runs. Yuvraj bowls a tight over and that builds the pressure. Samson however releases some pressure with a smashing six over mid-wicket. 17 runs and two wickets off the last 3 overs.
OUT! Umpire Erasmus takes ages to give that out. Looked like De Kock was unlucky. Q de Kock c Ojha b Henriques 44 (31b 5x4 2x6)
It's a short delivery outside off, De Kock goes for the upper cut, in process his helmet falls off. There seemed to be no edge. Henriques and the bowler go up in an appeal, they go on and on and on. The umpire takes ages to lift the finger. De Kock is shocked.
Rishabh Pant is the new batsman.
PREVIEW: On a roll after three successive wins, a confident Sunrisers Hyderabad will aim to continue their winning spree when they face Delhi Daredevils in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Comfortably placed atop the rankings table with 14 points from seven wins in 10 outings, the David Warner-led side has been beaming with confidence after sneaking past Rising Pune Supergiants by four runs in a nail-biting encounter on Tuesday.
On the other hand, the Zaheer Khan-led visitors will be hoping to get back on track after suffering two back-to-back losses against bottom-placed Pune and Kings XI Punjab.
Going into Thursday's encounter, Hyderabad will once again bank on a perfect start from their skipper Warner and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan. Back into his groove, the Delhi smasher has steered the team in the event of his skipper's early dismissal.
With mercurial Yuvraj Singh in good nick, Hyderabad's middle order boasts of explosive batters in New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques, keeper-batsman Naman Ojha and Deepak Hooda.
Sunrisers' bowling unit, comprising the lethal troika of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mustafizur Rahman and Ashish Nehra, has been the best in the business so far. They have been ably supported by Barinder Sran and Henriques.
On the flip side, the Rahul Dravid-mentored Daredevils, who have applied a horses-for-courses strategy this season, would be hoping for a brilliant start from their openers Quinton de Kock and Rishabh Pant.
Delhi's explosive middle-order, comprising youngsters Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Chris Morris and Carlos Brathwaite, will be tested well by the pace trio of Hyderabad.
Skipper Zaheer has led the bowling department brilliantly with early wickets and has found good support from Mohammed Shami, Morris and Brathwaite.
The spin department, consisting Amit Mishra, Imran Tahir and Shahbaz Nadeem, has also been amongst wickets and will hopefully come good to contain Hyderabad's strong batting attack.
