IPL 2018, SRH vs DD HIGHLIGHTSSunrisers Hyderabad make a statement and give it to all those out there who feel they aren't good while chasing in the match no. 36 of Indian Premier League 2018. They have done it against Delhi Daredevils in a great manner and need to be praised for their effort. Chasing 164, Hales and Dhawan got them off to an electric start in the Powerplay. They added 76 for the opening wicket and that very much set the tone for the chase. Amit Mishra, the experienced campaigner then removed both of them to somewhat gain the momentum back in their favour. Kane Williamson stepped in and looked positive from the word go. He along with Manish Pandey was motoring along well but a few tight overs towards the end, spiced the required rate up. That led to a wicket of the latter and it seemed like the hosts would crumble under pressure. They almost did but Yusuf Pathan, through a reprieve made Delhi pay big time. He played the striker role to his skipper as the duo strung 32 off 16 balls to take their team over the line to extend their winning streak to 4 wins in a row.
Delhi fought well tonight, first with the bat and then in the later stages with the ball. The department that led them down tonight was - FIELDING! The famous saying - 'Catches win matches', fits perfectly to this. It was Glenn Maxwell who dropped Alex Hales on 9 which saw the Englishman adding 36 more while Vijay Shankar handed a life to Yusuf Pathan on a duck and he made the most of it, scoring a match-winning 27 from 12 balls. Hard for all you Delhi fans out there to accept this - if not fully their chances to make it through seemed to have crushed tonight. (CRICKET STREAMING - SRH vs DD) (SCORECARD) (IPL Full Coverage)

Well, to add flavor to it, once again it's the Englishman who's at the receiving end. A flatter leg break, pitched around middle and leg and turning square towards off. Hales stays back to defend but the away turn beats the outside edge and disturbs the woodwork behind. Alex can't believe it and slowly trudges back.

22.14 IST: SIX! A free hit on Avesh's no-ball and Shikhar Dhawan does the needful. A powerful shot to fine-leg. Tad short on middle, sits up to be hit and Dhawan muscles it over deep mid-wicket for half a dozen. Right off the screws! SRH 42/0 in 5.1 overs
22.12 IST: FOUR! 11 runs off the over and Hales is all over the place. SRH 34/0 in 5 overs

21.56 IST: FOUR! Another one by Hales and sees that the third man is up and anticipates a short ball. Stays leg side and hits it by opening the face of the bat. The ball races down to the third man fence. SRH 9/0 in 1.3 overs

18.51 IST: Weather Report -
Brief Preview: The young Delhi Daredevils batsmen, striving hard to keep the team afloat, face a stern test when they face formidable bowling attack of hosts Sunrsiers Hyderabad, in an IPL match at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad. Just like previous editions, the Daredevils once again had a stop-start campaign in the ongoing IPL and are standing on the verge of yet another early elimination.
The Delhi outfit is currently placed sixth with just three wins out of nine games and with five more matches remaining this season, the Daredevils cannot afford to slip any further if they wish to make it to the four-team playoffs. But having suffered a string of losses under Gautam Gambhir who stepped down from captaincy on his own, the Delhi side looked in a much better shape under young Shreyas Iyer's leadership.
