IPL highlights, SRH vs DD: Hyderabad beat Delhi by 15 runs and maintain their unbeaten record at home.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beat Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 15 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Wednesday. Leading the Hyderabad innings, Kane Williamson (89) and Shikhar Dhawan (70) posted a competitive total of 191/4. Delhi's Sam Billings and Sanju Samson once again gave their team a flying start. However, the middle order batsmen failed to capitalise on the good start. Debutant Mohammed Siraj picked up two wickets for 39 runs in his stipulated four overs. Hyderabad's disciplined bowling left the Delhi batsmen frustrated. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar showed his class in the 17th and 19th overs where he didn't concede many runs. However, it was Siddharth Kaul who bowled the last over for SRH and he took the game away from Delhi. Hyderabad's second consecutive win have put David Warner and Co second on the table with eight points. Kane Williamson was adjudged man of the match. (SCORECARD)

19:05 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils.
Only Warner made a difference, barring a cameo from Naman Ojha lower down the order. The skipper's 70 got him the orange cap, but the rest of the batting was none to impressive. As for DD, they were done in by the hammer blows from Yusuf Pathan and Manish Pandey as KKR turned a potentially losing position into a win. Which is why Zaheer not too worried. It is not a disaster for his side yet and they can think in terms of recovery. Zaheer would, however, surely be worried about his spin bowling, since Amit Mishra doesn't seem to be in any kind of form. Nevertheless, it is the IPL. Things and fortunes change rapidly. So, no reason for DD to panic. Yet.
