In reply, DC reached the target of 8 through the efforts of Pant and Dhawan.

IPL 2021, SRH vs DC Highlights:

23:39 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Super Over: Dhawan, Pant lead DC to glory!

Rashid restarts the proceedings facing against Pant. The Delhi skipper hits a wild slog on the first ball for a single, and then a leg bye in the second delivery. On the third ball, Pant hits it over the fielder to his leg-side and a vital boundary! Pant misses the shot on the fourth, and then there's a LBW appeal on the fifth ball. SRH review but the wickets are missing... Pant did take a single on the fifth ball. On the last ball, Rashid hits the pads yet again... but another single between the wickets does the trick! Delhi Capitals reach the target of 8 and they win in the Super Over! Tough luck for Sunrisers Hyderabad and especially Kane Williamson.

23:36 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Super Over: Delhi need 8 runs to win!

Delhi now need 8 runs to win! Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant are out to chase. Rashid Khan has the ball for Hyderabad.

23:31 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Super Over: Warner, Williamson bat for SRH

Axar starts the proceedings facing against Warner. No run in the first ball, but Warner takes a single in the second. Then, WIlliamson punishes Axar by nailing a pull through square leg... four! Axar bites back well with a dot ball. Delhi take a review for a LBW on the fifth ball, but it's missing Williamson's leg stump. The over ends with just a single. SRH: 7/0 after their single over.

23:27 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Super Over: Hyderabad come out to bat first!

David Warner and Kane Williamson are out! No Jonny Bairstow and that's a surprise! Axar Patel has the ball in his hand.

23:21 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Into the first super over of IPL 2021!

What drama! Needing 15 from the final over, Williamson (66*) and Suchith (14*) upped the ante at the right time. While the New Zealand captain hit a four, his partner decreased the pressure with a six. Rabada made up his ground by bowling exceptionally well in the final three balls, restricting the opposition to get four runs. Now, the super-over awaits in Chennai. SRH: 159/7 (20 overs)

23:08 (IST)25 Apr 2021

Hyderabad tried their best to remain in the contest, but it's all but over. Avesh castles Shankar and forces him to walk back to the pavilion on 8. The batsman tries to pull a short ball... but drags it onto the stumps off the bottom edge. SRH: 136/7 (18.3 overs)

22:55 (IST)25 Apr 2021

The timeout does the trick for Delhi! Axar spins a web and traps Abhishek (5) before the wickets! Hyderabad take a review but it's of no help... impact dead in front of off stump with the ball crashing into middle. Rashid (0) comes on to bat next... and LBW! Rashid goes for a reverse hit on his very first ball, misses and gets trapped. Dead plumb. 43 runs off 22 now. SRH: 117/6 (16.2 overs)

22:50 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Hyderabad need 43 off 24 balls!

Despite being in the death overs, Hyderabad are being very cautious right now. Williamson reaches his fifty with a two off Avesh's bowling but there has been zero boundaries since Jadhav's wicket. The equation? 43 more runs off 24 balls. SRH: 117/4 (16 overs)

Delhi continue with their momentum! Mishra completely outsmarts Jadhav (9) and gets him stumped with some help from his skipper Pant. The batsman gets beaten in length after shimmying down the pitch. Hyderabad in trouble. SRH: 104/4 (14.2 overs)

22:37 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Hyderabad finally cross 100-run mark

Ever since Virat's dismissal, it has been quite gloomy for Hyderabad. Apart from a four by Jadhav, it has all been quick singles for them so far. But Williamson (44*) finds a way to inject some confidence into his team -- a four off Rabada. SRH: 104/3 (14 overs)

22:25 (IST)25 Apr 2021

There it is! Williamson loves to take on a challenge, sure, but not his partners. Avesh bags his second of the night as he sends Virat back to the pavilion. Stoinis with the catch. A end of a difficult stay for the batsman, gone for 4 off 14. SRH: 84/3 (11.2 overs)

22:20 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Hyderabad still have half of a job left to do...

A challenging task for a man who loves challenges? Williamson (31*) stabilises himself in the middle by taking on Ashwin well and hitting him for a four. A well-calculated risk that one. Eight runs from the over. Hyderabad still need 80 more. SRH: 80/2 (10 overs)

22:12 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Williamson provides a ray of hope

Delhi have assumed a bit of control now. The spinners -- Mishra and Ashwin -- put on the pressure on the batsmen for a couple of overs before Williamson (25*) smacks the former for back-to-back boundaries, in hope of upping the ante. SRH: 72/2 (9 overs)

21:59 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Williamson, Virat make it to the end of powerplay

Bairstow continues with his charge and slaughters Axar with a four and a six. He then moves on to the next bowler and takes on Avesh Khan. After Williamson's boundary, he joined the party with a mighty maximum! But the carnage soon comes to an end as the bowler dismisses Bairstow (38) via a catch by Dhawan. Body blow for Hyderabad. Up next, Virat Singh. SRH: 56/2 (6 overs)

21:45 (IST)25 Apr 2021

Hyderabad aim to carry the momentum forward and Bairstow delivers! He sends the ball flying for a six on the first ball... but tragedy! Some miscommunication between them and Warner (6) falls short... run out by Rabada/Pant! SRH: 28/1 (3.2 overs)

21:40 (IST)25 Apr 2021

Delhi are getting closer to getting their first breakthrough... one overturned caught behind decision and a dropped catch in the last over! Pant sends Stoinis into the mix and the bowler gets smacked for a four and a huge six by Bairstow (16*). SRH: 22/0 (3 overs)

21:26 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Warner, Bairstow begin the chase for 160

David Warner and Jonny Bairstow come out to open the chase for Hyderabad. Kagiso Rabada will start the proceedings with the ball... and it's a good start for Delhi. Both the openers rotate the strike but fail to get it going with a four. SRH: 5/0 (1 over)

21:10 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Hyderabad need 160 runs to win!

After Hetmyer fell on the final ball of the penultimate over, Smith (34*) stepped forward to take responsibility. Up against Khaleel in the final over, the Australian smacks a four and a mighty six to provide a late surge. Stoinis ends on 2*. DC: 159/4 (20 overs)

21:04 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Pant falls

Smith is dropped. Vijay Shankar misses a wicket but gives away just 4 runs in the 17th over. Kaul gets Pant to mistime a pull shot in the 19th over. Pant is gone for 32. A well-timed wicket for SRH.

DC 144/3 after 18.4

20:50 (IST)25 Apr 2021
Rashid Khan's most expensive IPL 2021 figures

The boundary-an-over formula continues for DC. Pant smashes Kaul for a six. Rashid Khan gives away 11 runs in his last over. He ends with his most expensive figures of this season yet: 4-0-31-1.
