Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have beaten Delhi Daredevils (DD) by eight wickets via Duckworth-Lewis method in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 on May 10 at the Feroz Shah Kotla. In a highly rain-affected contest, Hyderabad chased down a regularly-reduced target in 4.2 overs to win the match. Rain delayed the start of the run-chase and that resulted in the innings being reduced to 15 overs. The revised target was 117 for Hyderabad. But rain again disrupted proceedings. Once play resumed, the target was again revised to 97 and Hyderabad had to get there in 12 overs.

But rain further affected play and the final target was 43 in five overs, but Hyderabad were at 17 for one after two overs. It became a sort of farce in the end, but Hyderabad were always on course to chase down the ever-decreasing target. This was Match 32 of the IPL 7 season. After the win, Hyderabad sit in fourth position with eight points in the IPL 7 Points Table. Delhi are rooted in last place with four points.

Aaron Finch and Shikhar Dhawan began the run-chase for Hyderabad. Mohammed Shami bowled the first over. He bowled a bouncer that went over Dhawan and the wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik for four byes. Shami then bowled a short delivery and Dhawan pulled the ball for a four towards deep mid-wicket to give Hyderabad a positive start.

Siddharth Kaul bowled the second over. But after the first delivery, the rain came down heavily to halt play again. The players were hauled into the dressing rooms and the covers came out on the pitch.

After play was resumed, Dhawan handed JP Duminy a catch at point to give Kaul a wicket. Dhawan was out for four runs. Then after the second over, there was more rain to interrupt play further. After another long delay, play resumed and the new revised target for Hyderabad was 43 runs from five overs. They were already at 17 for one after two overs, so, that meant Hyderabad needed 26 runs off three overs.

Imran Tahir bowled the third over and gave away only seven runs. Rahul Shukla bowled the fourth over and bowled Finch for four runs on the second delivery. Warner then struck a four and new batsman Naman Ojha hit a six. By the time the fifth and final over of the inning was about to be bowled, Hyderabad needed six runs to win.

Ojha hit another six on the second delivery bowled by Laxmi Shukla and the match was over. Hyderabad won the highly rain-affected match by eight wickets.

Earlier, Delhi Daredevils posted a modest total of 143 for seven in their 20 oversDinesh Karthik top-scored with 39 off 30 deliveries and Kevin Pietersen scored a 19-ball 35 while opening the innings. Amith Mishra got his 100th wicket in the IPL.

In doing so, he became only the second bowler to do so. He got two wickets for. Dale Steyn and Moises Henriques also took two wickets each for Hyderabad.

Brief scores:

Delhi Daredevils 143 for 7 in 20 overs (Kevin Pietersen 35, Mayank Agarwal 25, Dinesh Karthik 39; Dale Steyn 2 for 20, Moises Henriques 2 for 26, Amit Mishra 2 for 23) lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad 44 for 2 in 4.2 overs (David Warner 12*, Naman Ojha 13*) by 8 wickets via Duckworth-Lewis method.
