7 runs off Mishra's first over here. SRH have played it smart here, picking the singles and hitting the timely boundaries. They have score 80/1 in 10 overs.

Zaheer back into the attack here with SRH's score reading 64/1 after 8 overs. Delhi Daredevils need a wicket here to stem the flow of runs.


Boundary for Shikhar. Cummins bowls short and Dhawan goes for the pull to send the ball into the fine-leg boundary. SRH's score reads 63/1

MAXIMUM! That is the first six of the game here. Mathews pitches that short and on the leg-side and Williamson goes straight into the mid-wicket stands. SRH's score reads 49/1


Mathews in the attack and he has failed to create much of an impact here in his first over. SRH batsmen have been happily picking the singles off him. SRH's score reads 43/1 after 6.3 overs


Boundary for Dhawan. Good short here as he leans into the drive off Cummins. That races past the mid-off fielder. SRH's score reads 36/1


Pat Cummins into the attack. And straightaway hits Williamson on the pad. A half-appeal here as the ball is going down the leg. SRH's score reads 31/1

Zaheer Khan into the attack and he has bowled tight here, giving away just 1 off the first 4 balls.


Dhawan gets a boundary here. That was short and Dhawan went up and over the point fielder. Good start for Dhawan here as SRH's score reads 28/1. Expensive over from Morris here.


Beautiful cut from Williamson here. Is this what the SRH was missing in the middle-order? Looks classy. SRH's score reads 23/1


Good second over from Jayant. Just six off it as Dhawan and Williamson look to steady the ship after the early dismissal of Warner. SRH's score reads 18/1 after 3 overs


WICKET! Morris gets the wicket of Warner. Ball rears up from goodlength and Warner hits that in the air for Mishra to complete any easy catch at square-leg. Warner goes for 4. SRH's score reads 12/1


Morris bowling the second over here. He has been economical so far in the IPL. Needs to get some early wickets for Delhi Daredevils


10/0 after the first over. Hyderabad have started well with Dhawan on 6 and Warner on 3. Jayant will not be too happy here.


FREE HIT! One bounce four of the freebie. Dhawan swings the bat and Jayant starts this IPL with a no-ball. SRH's score reads 6/0


Jayant starts with a no-ball so Dhawan gets a FREE HIT to start his innings. SRH's score reads 2/0


Jayant Yadav to start proceedings against Warner. Dhawan at the other end giving his skipper company. Jayant will surely be under pressure to start well. 


TOSS NEWS: David Warner wins the toss and decides to bat first. Zaheer says the wicket looks good and should not be a worry. Says the team's morale is high. Jayant comes in for DD. 

Kane Williamson in for Nabi and Mohammed Siraj in for Sran in the SRH outfit

Full Scorecard

Catch all the live action of the blockbuster clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad between Delhi Daredevils at the Rajiv Gandhi Cricket International Stadium in Hyderabad.


Delhi Daredevils will be aiming to display more impact in their batting department as they face a formidable challenge from defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.

It will be an arduous task for the Daredevils as they face a team that has both current 'Orange Cap' holder David Warner (235 runs) and 'Purple Cap' owner Bhuvneshwar Kumar (15 wickets).

For Delhi, it will be important to have consistent impact in their batting. They have had forceful performances at the start of the innings and at the end but the two games — vs RCB and KKR — that they have lost has been primarily due to their inability to force the pace during middle overs.
