Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Capitals by 15 runs!

Chasing 163 runs, the Delhi Capitals got off to a horrible start, losing Prithvi Shaw in the first over itself. Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan tried to steady the ship as they put up 40 runs for the third wicket. Their partnership was looking dangerous when Rashid Khan was introduced into the attack and immediately made an impact, sending the skipper back to the pavilion for 17(21). 

Shikhar Dhawan seemed to be in good touch and carried on his innings despite the wickets falling at the other end. He went on to score 34(31) before he was dismissed by a wrong'un by Rashid Khan, who was extracting some good purchase off this pitch today. The Hyderabad side was well and truly on top here with the Capitals' required run-rate soaring to above 12. 

Shimron Hetmyer walked in and played a 12-ball 21 cameo, which included two huge maximums off Khaleel Ahmed, and kept DC's hope of winning this contest alive. Rishabh Pant played a slow knock, scoring 28(27) when the Capitals needed to score at a rate of more than two runs per delivery. He fell victim to Rashid Khan, as he swept one right down the throat of the square leg fielder. After Pant's wicket, Marcus Stoinis seemed to be DC's last hope but he too departed courtesy a brilliant yorker by T Natarajan. 

In the end, it was too much required to be done off the last few overs and the batsmen perished trying to match the mammoth required run-rate. Rashid Khan was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with figures of 3-14 from his four overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up two wickets while Khaleel Ahmed and T Natarajan chipped in with a wicket each. A brilliant all-round display by the Hyderabad outfit sees them crush the Delhi Capitals by 15 runs!

Rashid Khan has been adjudged as the Man of the Match for his match-winning figures of 3-14 today with the ball in hand!

19.6 Khaleel Ahmed to Kagiso Rabada, SIX! Rabada hits a maximum off the last ball of the innings to give a betterment to the net run rate. It is full outside the off stump. He lofts it with a straight bat over the cover boundary for a six!
19.5 Khaleel Ahmed to Anrich Nortje, off-cutter from Ahmed, Nortje gets it over the fielder at covers. Good effort from Samad at the boundary to save the boundary.
19.4 Khaleel Ahmed to Anrich Nortje, slower ball angling across the right-hander, beats his outside edge.
19.3 Khaleel Ahmed to Axar Patel, OUT! It's in the slot, but Patel fails to connect the heave, gets an inside edge on to his stumps!
19.2 Khaleel Ahmed to Kagiso Rabada, full ball from Ahmed, driven towards wide long-off for a single.
19.1 Khaleel Ahmed to Kagiso Rabada, lofts the full delivery towards long-off. Pandey comes in from the boundary and DROPS a dolly!
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is given the crucial penultimate over and he executes his plans well, conceding only 9 runs. He fishes with decent figures of 2-25 from his quota of four overs. Will the Capitals be able to pull off the unbelievable?
Delhi Capitals now need 28 runs from the last over. 

Khaleel Ahmed to bowl the last over!

T Natarajan continues bowling right in the blockhole and does not allow the batsmen to score the big runs which are needed. A brilliant yorker sends Marcus Stones packing and picks up a well-deserved wicket! Natarajan finishes with miserly figures of 1-25 from his four overs.  However, it is not over until it is over. Will we see something special from the Capitals tonight? Only time will tell!
