HIGHLIGHTS, DD vs SRHIPL 2018 HIGHLIGHTS, DD vs SRH, Match 42 at Feroz Shah Kotla: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 42nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 between Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.

Bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils will be desperate to seal a victory to stay alive in the IPL 2018. However, they have a huge wall to scale as they host table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi, today. Meeting Hyderabad for the second time in the 11th edition of the IPL, Shreyas Iyer-led team will have to win today to have any chance of progressing further in the tournament. When they last met on May 5, Delhi rode on a sublime 65-run knock from the highly-talented Prithvi Shaw to put up a challenging 163 against Sunrisers in their away game at Hyderabad. But they were unable to defend 28 runs off the last two overs with the experienced Dan Christian and Trent Boult letting the team down. Delhi could have won rather easily if they held on to the catches of Sunrisers opener Alex Hales and Yusuf Pathan, who eventually got his team over the line with a 12-ball 27. (SCORECARD)

22.15 IST: SIX! Dhawan smashes that and it goes all the way. Last over of the Powerplay, so Dhawan wants to make full use of it. Powerful hit. It's full and in his arc, he just launches it over the long on fence and gets a biggie to his name. SRH 48/1 in 5.2 overs

It was actually the slower ball which did the trick. Forced Hales early into the shot and got the result. SRH 15/1 in 1.5 overs

He further adds the spinners will be wanting to bowl on this wicket as there will be enough assistance for them. Feels the Delhi batsmen need to attack in the middle overs which is the phase where Hyderabad have dominated with the ball. Informs the team batting first has won 5 out of 6 games here and states that the average score batting first is 180, but it has been a lot lesser this season. He ends by asking - can the team batting second change the trend tonight?
19.50 IST: "We would have batted first as well. Tough to predict the pitch and it looked dry, hopefully our bowlers can make some early inroads. (On the toss) Part and parcel of the game. Hard to control that, either you get to do it first or you don't. We chased last game. We can make improvements in all areas still, moving forward to the back half of the tournament. Don't want to get ahead of ourselves. Important to adapt to the surfaces we get. Just one change, Goswami comes in for Saha who is injured," Williamson says at the toss.
19.45 IST: "We've been really confident in the last few games. We've done well doing so in the last few games and the batsmen look confident.
