11.43 pm IST: Mohammed Shami: “I’m playing after a long time, and this performance will lift my confidence levels. In the T20 format, you don’t think about runs as a bowler. We just wanted to use the new ball well, not give too much pace, so it would be good for us to mix up our pace. I had different plans for each batsman - whether the batsman moves around or stays still, I stick to my plan, and the rest comes down to luck.”
11.42 pm IST: Mohammed Shami is Man of the Match.
11.41 pm IST: Delhi Daredevils captain Karun Nair: “Very happy. I think the bowlers gave it their all, and if we had caught that catch they wouldn’t have got that far. We told ourselves, we are a young team, and we should play like a young team. Go out there, play without fear. Bit disappointed to get out after getting a start, but glad to get some runs finally and hoping to kick on from here.”

11.31 pm IST: SRH captain David Warner: “It’s been a little bogey, playing away. The wicket sort of held up a little bit, early on, and we thought 186 was a tough target. They played really well to win it. The slower balls were holding up a little, and we didn’t want to be too predictable, but we maybe bowled too many quicker balls today.”

When you get time, you need to make the most of it. Happy that I got time in the middle. I said to him if we try to get around 170-175, we’ll get 180. But if we try 180, we might end up getting 160. Delhi has got the best bowling attack in the IPL. They’ve got very good international bowlers. You have to be smart and wait for the loose balls.”

7.00 pm IST: Hello and welcome to HT’s live coverage of the Indian Premier League match between Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad at Feroz Shah Kotla.
Delhi Daredevils, on the other hand, have been struggling for form in recent games, with the lowest point of their campaign coming in the last game against Kings XI Punjab, where they were bowled out for a paltry total of 67. (ALL THE RESULTS)
While DD have a good bowling line-up, the biggest cause for concern is the inconsistency in their batting. Barring Sanju Samson, almost every other batsman has failed to get going for the team this season.
SRH will be quietly confident going into the game, and having bowled extremely well in the death overs this season, will have the edge against the out-of-form hosts.
