Right, that's it from the coverage of this game. Another solid display from Sunrisers Hyderabad with both bat and ball sees them climb upto second in the points table behind the Rajasthan Royals. We will be back tomorrow with a double header on Super Sunday with Kolkata Knight Riders taking on Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Kolkata followed by Punjab Kings up against Gujarat Titans live from Mullanpur. Stay tuned for all the other cricketing actions across the globe in our network as well. 

For now, this is Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentators AkshayaKrishna Polya and Ninaad Dixit alongside scorer/analyst Paras Yadav. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and CHEERS!  
Travis Head (Player of the Match): "Yes, happy with another great knock and I try to stay relaxed out there and hit the ball and enjoy it. Enjoy batting with Abhishek. Absolutely enjoy batting with him, he takes on the spinners and we compliment each other really well.

I think I bowl the worst out of all the players that's why I am subbed out. Aiden bowls better than me. But getting handy contributions from others as well.

 I think it's coming together really well and happy to do well. Last 22 months has been great and I am happy to do well at the top and take it on. Glad it's working for us."  
Pat Cummins (Sunrisers Hyderabad Captain): "Yes, good record and keeps going. Another great win and the ball was flying here. I think we saw with both powerplays it was great to hit the bowlers. But the ball got softer and it gripped a bit but all in all good batting wicket.

There was no dew as such and that helped us. Yes, great to see them teeing off against the bowling but what is scary is that I have to bowl on it as a bowler.

Glad we could do that and bowl well.  We needed to bowl well and I am happy with where we are at as a team."

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (SRH): "Definitely! Look, when you are defending those many runs, two things can happen. Either you, too, go for many runs, or the opposition collapses as you get amongst the wickets. Thankfully, so far, we haven't gone for too many or gone for plenty. The plan was to keep executing. 

I know I am not among the wickets much, but the things I want to do are happening; the execution is happening. It's just a matter of time before the wickets come.

(On Natarajan) Amazing! A guy who remains silent most of the time does the job and goes unnoticed. We know how good he is at yorkers. He keeps working hard. We know how important he is for Sunrisers. 

For so many years, this is the first time our batting is clicking so much. As a bowling unit, we are happy to take the back seat. They are ruining us (chuckles). When we defend 180 or so, it'll feel like less. 

Definitely! Both Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma play the same way in the nets. It doesn't matter how the pitch or conditions are. They are going only one way. It is good for us in one factor that we get to practice for such situations from the opposition in the game. Batters sometimes play the opposite in the nets, but they play the same way. 

Bowling is something that I remember somebody saying: batting wins you sponsorship, but bowling wins you championship. The way we are bowling right now looks bad on the scorecard, but it is pretty good for us. The way we executed our plans is great."
Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals Captain): "The only thought process behind the toss was the dew which didn't come. If we restricted them to 220-230, we still would have a chance.

Powerplay was the difference. They got around 120-130 and we were just catching up throughout the match. That was the massive difference.

It stopped more in the 2nd innings than we anticipated. When you have such a big score to defend, it gives the bowlers confidence. We had a pretty good chance with 220-230 to chase.

Hopefully we will come back better with a clear mindset. Jake Fraser-McGurk is batting phenomenal and coming nice for us. That's what you want. More about sticking together as a team at the hardest time. Its difficult pill to swallow but we need to look at areas to improve and come back for the next game."
11:12 PM IST and Local Time: A solid all round display from the Sunrisers Hyderabad helps them catapult to second in the points table as they outclass the home team Delhi Capitals at the Arun Jaitley Stadium by 67 runs. Delhi Capitals promised a lot initially in the chase but it fizzled out in the end. Delhi lose their first game at home. 

Chasing 267 for an improbable win, Delhi got off to a roaring start as Impact Player Prithvi Shaw hit 4 boundaries in the opening over before perishing to impact player of Sunrisers Washington Sundar. David Warner fell cheaply. Jake Fraser-McGurk was the star with the bat with his 65 off 18 balls. Abishek Porel looked good for his 42 off 22 balls. Tristan Stubbs struggled while skipper Rishabh Pant struggled for his 44 off 35 balls and was going less than a run a ball. The innings folded in the second half of the innings as DC were bowled out for 199 in 19.1 overs. 

T Natarajan was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4/19 in 4 overs. A couple of wickets for Nitish Kumar Reddy as he picked up the last wicket to fall. A couple of wickets to Mayank Markande while Washington Sundar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar got a wicket apiece. Pat Cummins was wicketless but kept things under control through great leadership. 

Earlier in the game, it was carnage from the SRH openers after they were invited to bat first by Rishabh Pant. The openers put on 131 off 38 balls and 125 of those in the powerplay. Travis Head was the star with his 89 off 32 balls while Abhishek Sharma was not to be left behind with his 46 off 12 balls. Nitish Kumar Reddy scored a valuable 37 off 27 balls while Shahbaz Ahmed got 59 off 29 balls lower down the order which was invaluable for them. Samad also played a little cameo. The SRH could have got more but got more than enough 266/7 in 20 overs. 

The spinners of Delhi Capitals fought hard with Kuldeep Yadav picking up 4 wickets for 55 runs in 4 overs. Axar Patel bowled a miserly spell of 1/29 in 4 overs. Mukesh Kumar picked up a wicket as well but went the distance much like his fellow pacers. A hard day at the office for the Delhi Capitals with the ball and then with the bat. 

So, a win for SRH over DC by 67 runs as they climb upto second in the points table. Stay tuned for the presentations.  
19.1 Reddy to R Pant
W WICKETTTT!!!! No half-century for Rishabh Pant! Nitish Kumar Reddy with the final nail in the DC coffin! He is rising on the ranks! Around the wicket. Slower bouncer angling into the body of the batter at 124.7 kmph. Pant loses his shape yet again, looking for a hook, hitting it early, losing the bottom hand off the bat and mistiming it straight down the throat of deep fine leg. Natarajan with the wickets earlier and now, with the catch. A fine catch on the boundary to wrap things up as SRH bundle out for DC for 199 and win by 67 runs!
