Delhi Daredevils are just hanging in there with a glimmer of hope to reach the play-off as they beat the defending champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad, by 6 wickets. After winning the toss, Delhi Daredevils captain Karun Nair asked the Sunrisers to bat first on a relatively good batting track.

The Sunrisers went in with confidence and started the game aggressively, thanks to some vintage batting from Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner. They somewhat lost their way in the middle, but were catapulted back into contention by Yuvraj Singh, who helped the score reach 185. 

In response, the Daredevils beautifully constructed their innings with the right amount of aggression and won the game with relative comfort in the end.

Here are 5 memorable moments from the match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe Signature range of body perfumes. 

#1 Sanju Samson’s drop

When Yuvraj Singh gets going, perhaps only God can stop him. Such is the power of the man that he can single-handedly win his team a lot of games. Hence, it is absolutely pivotal for a team to have its fielders on their toes when the left-hander is on the crease.

However, Sanju Samson wasn’t as alert as he should have been. The young Daredevils wicketkeeper dropped the catch of Yuvraj Singh when the experienced campaigner was on 29 from 26 balls.

After that, the World Cup winner went on to score a further 41 runs from just 15 balls. In total, he made 70 off just 41 balls and hit an astounding 11 boundaries and a six.
