KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Delhi Daredevils' young batsmen will face a stern test when they face formidable bowling attack of Sunrsiers Hyderabad in IPL 2018 match on Saturday.

In Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Rishab Pant, Delhi have the capability to mince match-winning runs, which is lacking in the Hyderabad's side.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Delhi Daredevils (DD) by seven wickets to go to the top of the table at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Saturday.

Alex Hales (45) and Shikhar Dhawan (33) provided Hyderabad a confident start although Delhi should have removed Hales in the second over when Australian allrounder Glenn Maxwell dropped a sitter in the deep.

The Iyer-Shaw combo added 86 runs for the second wicket, and threatened to pile up a large score. From the school days, he was making headlines, scoring 500 runs and coming in a first class, scoring that debut 100 for Mumbai Ranji and then four consecutive 100s at first-class level.

The six wins of Sunrisers have mainly been due to their bowlers, who have defended a string of low scores.

Vijay Kumar blasted 23 off 13 balls, hitting a four and a six in his innings, as the Daredevils posted a challenging 163-5 - though at the half-way point it looked like they would finish with far more.

The failures of Glenn Maxwell and Colin Munro have added to Delhi's woes but with Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Iyer looking good with the bat, the team has had some reasons to smile.

The two were threatening to take the match away from the hosts before Rashid Khan showed his class with the ball.

That all changed in penultimate over as Yusuf smashed Trent Boult for a six and a boundary to bring down the equation to 14 off six. He got to his half-century in 25 balls.

The Baroda right-hander then hit a four before taking a single as Hyderabad required one run from the remaining two deliveries. He was looking good for a fifty before being bamboozled by Amit Mishra's leg-spin for a well made 45 (31).

Delhi bowlers, especially Amit Mishra (4-0-19-2), had nearly helped them defend the total which seemed respectable on a track where spinners were getting maximum purchase.

Rashid, after conceding nine runs in his first over, struck with the first delivery of his second spell when he dismissed Prithvi Shaw and broke a threatening 89-run partnership. Both were bowled by leg-spinner Amit Mishra as Hyderabad lost the openers with 86 on the board after 11 overs. Pandey went off 21 (17). Rashid Khan was chosen as the 'Player of the Match'.
