44/2 (4.2 Overs)

Sunrisers Hyderabad win by 8 wickets (D/L Method)

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad Win By Eight Wickets

    The match took almost five hours to complete, after several rain delays. The Sunrisers were certainly helped by the brief nature of the chase, while Delhi were severly hampered by a wet ball. On with the show, as our coverage heads to the Wankheded Stadium - where Mumbai and Chennai clash.
  • Over 4.2 Sunrisers 37/2

    Laxmi to deliver the closing throes - can he pull off victory for Delhi? No, instead Ojha cranks six more - and that's that.
  • Over 4 Sunrisers 37/2

    Seamer Shukla into the attack. Pietersen meticulous in placing the field. WICKET! Neither cover nor sweeper are required, as the bowler snipes through Finch, toppling the bails. Ojha is the new man in. Warner isn't bothered by the loss of his fellow Australian, duly smashing a six to leave six runs required off the final over.
  • Over 3 Sunrisers 24/1

    Leg-spinner Tahir into the attack. He was a late call-up after injury to Australian seamer Nathan Coulter-Nile. Finch and Warner happy to push singles - and welcome the occasional wide from the oft-erratic slow bowler. 19 needed off 12.
  • Let's Play - Again

    The Sunrisers' target has now been reduced to 26 more runs off a further three overs. Twenty20 cricket, ladies and gentlemen - the format that allows for ludicrous abbreviations.
  • Latest Resumption

    Short-lived delay, that. Covers off. Players on. Sunrisers need 66 from 48. Patience being tested here. Almost four and a half hours for a game of T20 cricket - and no result yet...
  • Another Rain Delay

    More showers. Players off. Covers on. And so the wait, perhaps the last one, begins again at 19:49 local time (14:19 GMT).
  • Over 2 Sunrisers 17/1

    WICKET! Kaul completes his over broken by the rain, cramping Dhawan for room and ultimately forcing him to spoon a straightforward catch to the point fielder. Duminy timed his little hop for that catch well. Warner is the new man in, blocking out the remainder of an over riddled with wides.
  • New Target

    Sunrisers need 86 more runs from 65 more deliveries, deem Messrs Duckworth and Lewis, as play resumes - again.
  • Over 1.1 Sunrisers 11/0

    Kaul shares the new ball with Shami and has his opening over halted by more rain. Players off, covers back on, wait resumes at 19:26 local (13:56 GMT). This is the match's third delay. As it stands, the Sunrisers require a further 106 runs from 83 balls.
  • Over 1 Sunrisers 10/0

    The fast bowler finds some steep bounce, beating Dhawan on the pull - and the wicketkeeper - as four byes scream to the fence. Shami maintains the short ball later, with the left-handed Dhawan tested on the pull again - this time cranking four through the leg-side. Pietersen complains to the umpire. He wants the bowler warned - or no-balled - after three short balls on the trot.
  • Sunrisers' Chase

    All and sundry return to the field. Finch and Dhawan to open the batting. Shami to get first use of the new ball.
  • Resumption

    Less than 20 minutes since the second rain delay of this fixture, play will resume soon enough. Overs lost, indeed. Hyderabad need 117 from 15.
  • Weather Update

    The inclement weather has returned during the innings break. Covers are back on. And so the latest wait begins at 18:54 local time (13:24 GMT).
  • Daredevils End On 143/7

    That score is lower than Pietersen's initial onslaught promised. Pathan bowled really well, while the leg-spin twins - Sharma and Mishra - were solid. Dhawan, Finch, Warner and company shouldn't have much trouble in pursuing 144 - but time will tell. Stick around for the chase, it should be a cracker.
  • Over 20 Daredevils 143/7

    Steyn, indeed, will bowl the final over of the innings. Renowned for his death bowling, the pace ace keeps the length full and the line marginally outside the off-stump. Only singles on offer, which the Delhi pair are quick to take. It's boundaries they want, though. WICKET! Nothing, however, instead another dismissal - Jadhav clouts a full toss to short thirdman.
  • Over 19 Daredevils 139/6

    Kumar to continue, and Steyn will surely get the final over of the innings. With just a single run conceded off the opening four deliveries of this salvo, Duminy and Jadhav are desperate to find the fence. WICKET! No go, though, as the South African is bowled to end a truly outstanding over from the young Indian seamer. Rahul is the new man in.
  • Over 18 Daredevils 137/5

    Pathan bowling marvelously well. Neither Duminy nor his Indian batting partner can get under this full length. Some superb fielding, particularly by Steyn and Warner, is certainly helping the bowler to continue this economical stretch too.
  • Over 17 Daredevils 132/5

    WICKET! Karthik's cameo meets its end, as a high full toss from Henriques is struck to long-off, where Steyn takes a great catch, maintaining his balance to remain inside the boundary rope. Duminy is the new man in, and watches from the non-striker's end as Shukla punishes another full toss across the line for four. WICKET! Shukla then perishes in the quest for big, quick runs, the slower ball outfoxed him - Warner taking the catch this time. Jadhav now arrives at the crease.
  • Over 16 Daredevils 127/3

    The half-century partnership arrives as Karthik continues to wield the willow at anything and everything put before him - with mixed results. Kumar is wise in his length, though his pace is lagging, but that's probably fitting for these conditions.
