Khaleel Ahmed provided SRH with a bright start as Prithvi Shaw suffered yet another failure and Shikhar Dhawan failed to take off from where he had left in the previous game. While Shaw scored 4 runs, Dhawan perished for 7 as DC were reduced to 20/2 in the fourth over.

Colin Munro and DC skipper Shreyas Iyer started to rebuild the innings, with the New Zealander playing the role of an aggressor. But Abhishek Sharma broke the 49-run partnership as he dismissed the left-hander for 40.

Iyer was then joined by Rishabh Pant. The two put up a 56-run stand but just when it seemed like the Indian duo will go after SRH bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed Iyer to claim his 100th IPL wicket and Khaleel sent Pant packing to take his third wicket. Iyer and Pant got out in space of two runs.

Chris Morris too could not do much with the bat as Rashid Khan got the South African out for 4 to left DC reeling at 133/6. While Axar Patel scored 14 and Keemo Paul added 7, DC could not go past 160-run mark.

Brief scores: Delhi Capitals 155/7 (Shreyas Iyer 45, Colin Munro 40; Khaleel Ahmed 3/30) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
