Kevin Pietersen failed to fire in his first match for Delhi Daredevils as Sunrisers Hyderabad rode on a brilliant batting show by Aaron Finch and David Warner to notch up a narrow four-run win in an IPL match, PTI reported.

Electing to bat, Hyderabad scored a formidable 184 for one with Aaron (88) and Warner (58) stitching a 128-run stand for the unconquered second wicket and then restricted Delhi to 180 for four to record their first win of the season at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Chasing a stiff target of 185 for a win, Delhi were on course at 86 for no loss at the end of first 10 overs but ran out of steam once openers Quinton de Kock (48) and Murali Vijay (52) were out in successive overs, 12th and 13th respectively.

JP Duminy (20 off 7 balls) and Manoj Tiway (23 off 13 balls) made a last ditched effort but in vain. Their valiant efforts took the game down to the wire but the asking rate had gone too high for the duo to take their side to victory.

Daredevils captain Pietersen, who made it to the playing eleven after recovering from a finger injury, struggled in his first match this season as he looked rusty and tentative, before falling for 16 in the 17th over.
