SRH vs DC Match Summary: Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris went through Sunrisers batting line in the space of four overs, as Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad 39 runs on Sunday.

A fourth win on a row for Delhi Capitals, the Men in Blue have been putting on a show in this season’s IPL.

Defending a sub-par 155 at Hyderabad, The Capitals kept it tight right from the start, not allowing Sunrisers to have a go from right at the start.

Sunrisers openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow weren’t allowed to free their arms in the power play over. The duo could manage to score only 40 runs in the first six overs. Jonny Bairstow looked aggressive, while Warner played as a second fiddle to the English opener.

Warner and Bairstow didn’t look at their best in the 72-run association between them. Delhi seamers didn’t give any room to both the batsman. Skipper Kane Williamson fell early in his comeback match after scoring just 3 runs off 8 deliveries.

Delhi all-rounder Keemo Paul bowled brilliantly at the start and then in the middle overs, not giving any room to the batsmen to free their arms. The West Indian seamer claimed three important wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson and young Ricky Bhui.

After 15 Overs: Sunrisers – 1OO-2

It was an uncharacteristic Warner inning who didn’t look at his own in his knock of 51 off 47 deliveries. Sunrisers were in the game till the time Warner was at the crease.

Needing 51 off the last four, Sunrisers had both in-form Warner and Vijay Shankar at the crease, however, Rabada’s dampened Sunrises’ chances in the game, claiming two in tow, as both Shankar and Warner were in the dugout in the space of just two deliveries.

Wickets followed like a pack of cards afterwards, as Williamson and Co. folded for only 116 only to hand Delhi victory by 38 runs.  

Earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad restricted Delhi Capitals to 155 for 7 in the first innings.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, out of nowhere, came out with Khaleel Ahmed from their kitty and the only question that popped in everyone’s head after the left-hander completed his quota of overs, was where was he all this while?

Khaleel made a spectacular start to the tournament, having claimed both Delhi openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw in his first two overs, as Delhi Capitals were reeling at 20 for 2 in just four overs.

Delhi Capitals too made an unexpected change in the form of Colin Munro who also made a blistering start to his season. The left-hander initiated Delhi’s recovery, who along with skipper Shreyas Iyer added 49 runs for the third wicket.

The Southpaw played a fine 40-run knock off just 24 deliveries before young Abhishek Sharma accounted for Munro in the eighth over.

Unlike the previous occasion, Delhi had lost three wickets inside eight overs, however, Iyer and Rishabh Pant made sure, the run-rate won’t get affected as the duo took the total further till 16th over.

Both Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan played out SRH biggest bet Rashid Khan without taking much risk, even as taking other bowlers to the cleaners.

However, once Iyer departed in the 17th over, the flow of runs for RC dried up as the Capitals could only end up scoring 155 only to end up on the winning side on Sunday.
