Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and invited SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) to bat. SRH openers Wriddhiman Saha and Martin Guptill added 30 runs for the first wicket. Majority of these runs were scored by Guptill who played his natural strokes from the word go. Saha (8 off 9) departed cheaply but Guptill (36 off 19) continued with Manish Pandey (30 off 36). Guptill fell in the sixth over trying to clear the ropes but was caught by Keemo Paul off the bowling of Amit Mishra. Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson (28 off 27) thereafter kept the SRH innings going with ones and twos. Pandey and Williamson both departed inside two overs. Vijay Shankar and Mohammad Nabi played little cameos to help SunRisers Hyderabad post 162/8 on the board. For Delhi Capitals, Keemo Paul was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets while Ishant Shrama and Amit Mishra picked two wickets apiece. (SCORECARD)

IPL 2019 Eliminator Highlights Between Delhi Capitals vs SunRisers Hyderabad, straight from ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Vizag

  • Thank you for joining us. Hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Tomorrow is a rest day, we’ll see you the day after. Good night.

  • Khaleel Ahmed bowls short wide of the crease and Keemo Paul gets in the position quickly. He slogs that towrads midwicket region for a four. Delhi Capitals win the thriller. They will meet Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2.

  • Interesting… Amit Mishra changed his line while running and umpires are checking whether he did that deliberately to avoid the ball from hitting the stumps. He has been given out. Last moment drama. 

  • Khaleel starts final over with a wide. He bowled this slow but tad too wide from the batsman. 

  • Rishabh Pant departs after playing a gem of an innings. He fell just one short of his fifty. He is not happy the way he got out. He surely would have liked to finish the match.

  • Rishabh Pant is on song here. He hits Bhuvneshwar Kumar towards midwicket region for a massive six. Someone in the crowd catches that one-handedly but that doesn’t count.

  • Slower one and wide from experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Rutherford hits high in the air and Nabi completes a great catch. He made it look so easy.

  • Basil Thampi conceded 22 in the 18th over and it ha turned the game in Delhi’s favour.

  • Basil Thampi is being thumped by Rishabh Pant who has already clobbered 20 off first four balls. Thampi is under pressure. Pant is the man for Delhi. Can he get his wicket?

  • Rutherford dispatches the length ball from Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a six straight down the ground.

  • Delhi Capitals need 42 off four overs and they have Rishabh Pant and Sherfane Rutherford out in the middle. But it will take some hitting to cross the line.

  • This was more of a ‘break the shackle’ shot from Rishabh Pant. Luckily for him it  went away from Rashid Khan and cleared the fence marginally.

  • Rashid Khan has turned the tide in favour of SunRisers Hyderabad. Axar Patel has been given out caught behind. He goes for a duck. The replay suggests there was no edge. Terrible decision from the umpire but sadly for Delhi Capitals, they didn’t have review.

  • The ball hits Colin Munro on his front pad and Rashid shouts on top of his voice and the umpire has given him out. Munro has selfishly asked for review. Looks close and the replay does prove that. Munro departs.

  • Interesting approach from Colin Munro. Two deliveries back he charged down and created doubt in bowler’s mind. Thampi falls in the trap and balls on Munro’s pads and he flicks it off his pads for an excellent six.

  • Chinese cut and a four. Colin Munro charges down and Thampi spots that and takes his pace off. Luckily Munro manages an inside edge and ball sails to the boundary behind wickets.

  • Length ball from Mohammad Nabi and Rishabh Pant goes down on his knees to hit it over long on fence for a huge six. 

  • Khaleel Ahmed goes quick and short at Prithvi Shaw who only manages a top edge. The ball rises in the air and Vijay Shankar completes a simple catch. First bad shot from Shaw and it sends him back to the pavillion.

  • Khaleel Ahmed strikes for SunRisers Hyderabad. Shreyas Iyer tries to play it towards third man but only manages a faint edge straight to Saha behind the stumps. 

  • Slower one from Basil Thampi and Prithvi Shaw goes away from his stumps trying to make room on the off shot but missed it completely. The ball even deceives Saha behind the stumps and the batsmen complete one bye.

  • Shreyas Iyer judges the length early and opens the face of his bat at the every end. The ball sails away from point fielder for a boundary.

  • What a show this youngster has put in for us. Prithvi Shaw completes his fourth IPL career fifty with a single and he deserves every bit of it. He has been that good. But he needs to continue for Delhi Capitals

  • Deepak Hooda saw Dhawan charging and bowls a wide. Wriddhiman Saha does well to collect that and dislodge the bails in time. Shikhar departs for 17 off 16 balls.

  • Prithvi Shaw charges down the crease and clears the long on fence for a six. The fielder there was just a spectator.

  • Shaw picked Rashid early and plays it over extra cover with the turn for a four. That was some shot. He is on a roll. The powerplay ends at 55 without and loss.

  • The early onslaught by Delhi batsmen has forced Kane Williamson to go for his strike bowler. Rashid Khan starts confidently for SRH.

  • Both Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw have started strongly. But young Prithvi Shaw has hit SunRisers Hyderabad bowlers to all corners of the park and he is looking more dangerous than his senior fellow.

  • The sound off the bat suggested how good a shot that was. Shaw has started confidently. He finishes the over with a classy cover drive.

  • Prithvi Shaw hits back to back fours off the bowling of Khaleel Ahmed. Shaw stood his ground and picked the length well. Sheer class act from Shaw.

  • Kane Williamson has introduced Mohammad Nabi in the second over itself. The wicket is two-paced and it is not hard to hit the slow bowlers.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar drifts on the leg side and Shikhar Dhawan was quick to latch on to that. He flicks off his pads for a four on the leg side.

  • Shikhar Dhawan plays an elegant cover drive for first boundary of Delhi run chase.

  • Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan are out for Delhi Capitals and Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the ball for SunRisers Hyderabad.

  • Delhi Capitals need 163 to remain in the tournament. 

  • Rashid Khan goes for naught. He edged that one straight to keeper. 

  • Deepak Hooda treis to sneak a single in form of a bye but Rishabh Pant aims at the non-striker end and the batsman is out. Little confusion as the bowler trying to collect the ball cam in batsman’s way. The umpire is discussing the matter with Shreyas Iyer. After a lot of talk, Hooda has been declared out. 

  • Mohammad Nabi perishes after a brief cameo. Coming back to ball it was another off-cutter from Keemo Paul and Nabi fails to read it and hands a simple catch.

  • Keemo Paul makes an excellent comeback as he bowls as brilliant yorker to get away with the free hit. 

  • Mohammad Nabi hits the length ball from Keemo Paul for a huge six. Oh dear! it has been called a no ball. Seven runs off that ball. Nabi gets the free hit. Can he make use of it?

  • Keemo Paul starts the last over with a wide. Paul was eyeing the tramline there.
