IPL 2020, DC vs SRH Highlights:

23:23 (IST)29 Sep 2020

There's the first win for Sunrisers Hyderabad, the one David Warner and co. have been waiting for. Khaleel goes for twelve runs and claims a wicket in the last over and hands his team a much-needed win... and Delhi their first loss in IPL 2020. Delhi started off slow, stumbled in front of the Rashid Khan (3/14) challenge, and ended their innings on 147/7 after 20 overs.

23:18 (IST)29 Sep 2020
DC need 28 off 6 balls!

Kagiso Rabada is on and he takes on Bhuvneshwar to hit a well-placed and much-needed boundary. But neither Rabada nor Axar can make much of the over after the way Rashid dismantled their batting order. Delhi need 28 off 6 balls. DC: 135/6 (19 overs)

23:13 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Stoinis LBW, DC under pressure

T Natarajan comes in, and he comes up with an inspired over. He keeps the explosive Stoinis (11) on a leash and restricts him and Axar Patel (3*) to just running between the wickets. And then the LBW against the Australian! Plumb. Gone. DC: 126/6 (18 overs)

23:04 (IST)29 Sep 2020

Stoinis took no time to settle in the last over with him hitting a four but he plays timidly against the extremely economical Rashid. Pant makes the mistake of taking him and loses his wicket. Caught by Garg. Delhi need 46 off 20 balls. DC: 117/5 (16.4 overs)

22:52 (IST)29 Sep 2020

Bhuvneshwar Kumar comes in and his experience does half the job. He teases Hetmyer to go for a shot, bowls a slower ball and his wayward shot lands in the hands of Manish Pandey. The batsman departs for 21. Time out! DC: 104/4 (15.1 overs)

22:50 (IST)29 Sep 2020
DC need 59 off 30 balls

After Natarajan went for 10 runs in the last over, Khaleel is brought back into the attack. Hetmyer checks him for a ball and then sends his delivery flying over deep mid-wicket! And again! 16 runs off the over. Into the final five overs now. DC: 104/3 (15 overs)

22:39 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Pant hits two maximums

Hello, hello, do we have a game here? DC have finally woken up from their slumber and it is Pant (20*) who hits the first two sixes of their innings. Sharma gets hit for two maximums in his final two balls of the innings. 15 runs off the over. DC: 78/3 (13 overs)

22:32 (IST)29 Sep 2020

There's the big fish! Rashid does it again for Hyderabad! The spinner's delivery is not well checked by Dhawan (34) and he goes for a miscalculated shot and instead gets caught behind by Bairstow. The review worked perfectly for SRH. DC: 62/3 (11.3 overs)

22:27 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Rashid, the main man for SRH?

Rashid comes back with the ball, but a misplaced delivery to the leg-side of Dhawan gets swept for a boundary. Still, the Afghanistani maintains the pressure on both the DC batsmen -- Dhawan is on 29* and Pant is on 4*. DC: 54/2 (10 overs)

22:20 (IST)29 Sep 2020
DC fall behind in their chase

SRH are completely in control again after Dhawan, Iyer posed some threat towards the end of powerplay. Warner's choices of bowlers have really paid off as both Sharma and Rashid have maintained the pressure on the batsmen. DC: 48/2 (9 overs)

22:12 (IST)29 Sep 2020

After Sharma conceded 8 runs in the last over, Rashid Khan comes into the attack... and instantly comes up with the goods. After duping Iyer (17) on the first ball, he gets his wicket after Iyer's shot lands in the hands of Samad at deep cover. DC: 42/2 (7.2 overs)

22:07 (IST)29 Sep 2020
DC gaining ground, powerplay ends

Khaleel with the ball, and in the second ball of the over, Iyer (14*) stomps forward and lofts it magnificently over mid-off. He seems to have confidence now. Three singles end the over and the powerplay too. Dhawan is on 18*. DC: 34/1 (6 overs)

22:03 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Dhawan, Iyer work in tandem

Dhawan (17*) and Iyer (5*) have found their groove against an off-form Khaleel now. First, Dhawan sends an overpitched delivery racing to the ropes and then Iyer joins the party hits his first boundary. 12 runs off the over. DC: 27/1 (5 overs)

21:58 (IST)29 Sep 2020
SRH still in the driving seat

T Natarajan comes into the attack. Dhawan doubles up his boundary count with brilliant shot over mid-on but that's about it from Delhi. Both Dhawan (12*) and Iyer (1*) are in some pressure here. Can they dig deep and turn things around? DC: 15/1 (4 overs)

21:52 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Dhawan provides some respite

And there's the first boundary of the innings, timed to perfection. Bhuvneshwar attacks Dhawan but the veteran opener just lifts it up and sends the ball straight down the ground. The pacer bounces back well and concedes just one more run. DC: 10/1 (3 overs)

21:48 (IST)29 Sep 2020
SRH off to a bright start

Khaleel Ahmed has the ball for the second over. Dhawan hits the first ball carelessly to outside off, but one bounce to the fielder. Iyer and Dhawan regularly rotate the strike in an attempt to form some stability. Just the three runs. DC: 5/1 (2 overs)

21:41 (IST)29 Sep 2020

Bhuvneshwar Kumar gives SRH a brilliant start with the ball. After three dot balls, a catch opportunity arose but the ball landed in a no man's land. But no worries, fifth ball... a caught behind. Brilliant start by Hyderabad. Shaw walks for 2. DC: 2/1 (0.5 overs)

21:38 (IST)29 Sep 2020
Dhawan, Shaw begin chase

Kane Williamson's inclusion was a much-needed boost to SRH's struggling middle-order. Hyderabad posted a decent total on the board, can they pick up their first win? Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw open the chase for DC. Here we go!

21:22 (IST)29 Sep 2020
SRH post 163/4

Wicket again in the final over for Rabada and he gets the big wicket of Kane Williamson. He gives a total of five runs as SRH post 163/4 after 20 overs. Will it be enough?  

21:19 (IST)29 Sep 2020
The debutant is smashing big

Abdul Samad, the debutant, is smashing big and after a four off a top-edge, he gets hold of the final delivery by Nortje. Samad plays it over the long-on fence for a maximum as SRH reach 158/3 after 19 overs.
