Put in to bat first, Delhi Capitals struggled to 129 – 8 - Shreyas Iyer 43 top scored and Axar Patel 23* played an important cameo innings at the death. All the bowlers were on top form for the Sunrisers - Mohammad Nabi 2-21, Rashid Khan 1-18, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 2-27, Sandeep Sharma 1-25 and Siddarth Kaul 2-35.
It was always going to be a challenge for the Delhi Capitals bowlers to restrict the Sunrisers Hyderabad batsmen to under 7 runs an over in the run and so it proved. Jonny Bairstow 48 top scored for the Sunrisers and Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 5 wickets with over an over to spare.
