    Bhuvneshwar to bowl his final over, with the game firmly in Delhi's grasp right now. Dot off the second. FOUR! Well-aimed yorker by Bhuvi towards Anderson's feet, and it runs away for a four after a deflection off his rear foot.

  • 23:08 (IST)

    After 16 overs,Delhi Daredevils 148/4 ( Corey Anderson 15 , )

    Warner turns to his go-to man Bhuvi, more out of desperation than anything.

Rashid remains wicketless today! 

    Delhi Daredevils need 44 to win from 30 balls. Unless Hyderabad get a breakthrough right now, Delhi could very well canter to a win. 

  • 22:58 (IST)

    After 14 overs,Delhi Daredevils 137/3 ( Shreyas Iyer 26 , Corey Anderson 11)

SIX! Nair makes room for a straight smash down the ground! The Karnataka batsman pulls the next one towards the fine-leg boundary to get his fifth boundary. 16 off the over, with Delhi making good use of the fielding restrictions to race away to 62/1 at the end of powerplay

Couple of singles exchanged between the two batsmen in the remainder of the over, with 13 coming off it. 

  • After batting and bowling in the last five matches, it was fielding that led down DD today. Rather they let themselves down for fielding is the one aspect that is totally under their control. There was no stopping Yuvraj Singh once he was given a life. This target is beyond DD if they stick to their tried and tested (but not working) batting formula. 

  • 21:55 (IST)

    After 1 overs,Delhi Daredevils 3/0 ( Sanju Samson 3 , Karun Nair (C) 0)

    The players are out at the start of the Delhi innings, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling to Sanju Samson and Karun Nair.

  • 21:27 (IST)

    After 18 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 153/3 ( Yuvraj Singh 43 , Moises Henriques 21)

    Rabada into his third over. Henriques guides the length ball towards fine-leg in the first ball to get his first boundary. Yuvraj gets a thick top-edge that carries high over the short fine-leg fielder, and carries all the way to the fence, bringing up the 50-stand.

Preview: Delhi Daredevils (DD) face a Herculean task to keep alive any chance of qualifying for the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) play-offs when they take on defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi on Tuesday.

Back from a 10-wicket thrashing at the hands of Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, thanks to another pathetic display of batting, Daredevils are currently languishing at the bottom of the league table with just two wins from their eight matches.

On the other hand, the third-placed Sunrisers are a confident unit after beating table-toppers Kolkata Knight Riders in another tie on Sunday.

Going into Tuesday's encounter, the home side will find it extremely difficult to pick up the pieces after being shot out for their lowest-ever IPL total of 67 runs at Mohali.

Such was the abject failure of the Daredevils batsmen that only three of them managed to reach double-digit figures on a pitch where Punjab's Martin Guptill blasted a 27-ball 50 in their chase.

It is turning out to be yet another nightmarish season for the Delhi franchise and compounding their misery is a hamstring injury to captain Zaheer Khan, forcing him to miss out on the last match against Punjab.

It is still not known if he will be able to make a comeback, and their England import Sam Billings is also leaving home to honour his international commitments. South Africans Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada also are set to leave this week.

Meanwhile, Sunrisers have got their house in order with both the Orange Cap and Purple Cap holders in skipper David Warner (top scorer with 459 runs) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (top wicket-taker with 20 scalps) respectively, in their ranks.

On Sunday, Warner blasted his third IPL century to power his side to a 48-run win against KKR. Not only the Australian opener, but New Zealand captain Kane Williamson also has been in great touch.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan also seems to have found his mojo back in company of the Aussie southpaw. Their middle order boasts of Yuvraj Singh, who can smash any bowler out of the park on his day.

Their bowling attack led by Bhuvneshwar alongside Afghanistan teenaged leg-spinner Rashid Khan also has the veteran Ashish Nehra and youngsters Mohammed Siraj, Siddharth Kaul and Mustafizur Rahman.


Delhi Daredevils: Zaheer Khan (C), Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (WK), Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Marlon Samuels.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha (WK), Ricky Bhui, Kane Williamson, Siddarth Kaul, Bipul Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, Ben Cutting, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Deepak Hooda, Vijay Shankar, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Nabi, Eklavya Dwivedi, Rashid Khan, Pravin Tambe, Ben Laughlin, Tanmay Agarwal, Mohammed Siraj.
