    Sunrisers Hyderabad win by 7 wickets as they move to the top of the points table. Yusuf Pathan played a good hand today. He smashed 27 off 12 to help SRH get through. Williamson like always didn’t give his wicket and stayed there till the end scoring 32.

  • 11:24 PM IST

    NOT OUT! Yusuf Pathan survives as the ball was pitching outside the line. Maybe that was the reason why Williamson was so animated. SRH are going away with the match here.

  • 11:16 PM IST

    The partnership is nearing 50 now. SRH are still the favourites here but DD still have a chance. One good over for both the sides can change the match. Boult still has one over to go.

  • 11:04 PM IST

    Partnership building between Williamson and Pandey. DD need to find a wicket here. With Williamson on the crease the match is never over for SRH. Right time to bowl Trent Boutl maybe?

  • 10:44 PM IST

    OUT! Mishra has delivered just when DD needed it the most. SRH’s middle order will be tested now and they need to deliver it today. Manish Pandey walks in the middle. With Williamson still in the middle the concerns of DD haven’t ended.

  • 10:38 PM IST

    DD have managed to send back Hales but the in form batsman of SRH has stepped him. Dhawan looks well settled now but still a wicket or two can still change momentum for DD.

  • 10:23 PM IST

    DD had kept things tight until Avesh Khan bowled the last over of Powerplay which went for 27 runs. DD in desperate need of wicket here as both Hales and Dhawan have found their feet in the middle.

  • 10:12 PM IST

    SRH are off to a steady start going almost run a ball. This game is a must win for DD, they need to get a wicket here. Dhawan is finding it hard to get the ball away.

  • 9:35 PM IST

    At one point DD seemed to be cruising to 190 but SRH bowlers did well to pull things back especially Rashid Khan. Pant was unable to get going. Vijay Shankar’s cameo in the end helped DD to post a competitive total. With no strong middle-order can SRH chase it down?

  • 9:16 PM IST

    OUT! Good reflexes from Rashid. He was quick to go to his right see which player is more outside and throw it to the striker’s end. Namaj Ojha has to go for 1.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of VIVO IPL  2018, Match 36. The match will see Shreyas Iyer’s men in Delhi Daredevils (DD) go against table-toppers, Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their own backyard to keep their playoffs hopes’ alive. The match will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. We will be bringing you the live updates, interesting tweets and stats from the cyberspace. This is the first time both sides will square off in the ongoing season. In DD’s last clash, Prithvi Shaw, Iyer and Rishabh Pant propelled the team score to 196 for 6 in rain-curtailed 18-over contest. Their bowlers, excluding Amit Mishra and Trent Boult’s effective death bowling, managed to pull off a heist versus Rajasthan Royals (RR). SRH are coming to this encounter on the back of an impressive away win; also against RR last Sunday. Defending another moderate score, SRH bowlers led to their sixth victory courtesy accuracy of Shakib Al Hasan, Siddarth Kaul and Rashid Khan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, if fit, will only add more to the already well-oiled bowling department. It boils down to DD’s batting versus SRH’s bowling. However, SRH need to address their lower order woes before moving ahead to the business end of the tournament.
