CSK vs SRH IPL 2021 Match Prediction, Predicted Playing XI: When and Where to watch Today's IPL match SRH vs CSK Streaming, Online at 7:30 PM
What a final over that was from Mohammed Siraj. Defended 14 off the last over. Hetmyer, who batted so well, can only watch in despair as his team falls short by 1 run. Both Pant and Hetmyer remain unbeaten on fifties but the RCB bowlers come out on top. Very uncharacteristic innings from Pant - never quite got going. He would've backed himself nine times out of 10 in a chase like this but tonight wasn't to be. Well played, RCB. They go top of the points table again.
- END OF MATCH -
Siraj to bowl the final over. Pant gets a single first ball. Brilliant from Siraj. Perfect yorker. Hetmyer can only squeeze it away for a single. 12 off 4. Oh brilliant. Siraj bowls a dot. Pant is struggling to break free. 12 off 3. Pant collects a brace. 10 needed off 2 now with Pant on strike. RCB's game by the looks of it. He gets one away for four. 6 needed off the last ball. Pant gets a four but it is RCB who will be celebrating tonight! DC fall short by just 1 run!
DC 158/4 in 19 Overs: Harshal Patel bowling the 19th. Three off the first two. Hetmyer on strike. Hetmyer gets to his 50 off 23 balls. Pant hits a boundary next ball. A full toss on off stump and Pant has clobbered it. DC turning the tide. Hetmyer gets 2 off the last ball. 14 needed off the last over
DC 147/4 in 18 Overs: Improvisation for just a single! Pant trying to ramp it but ends up hitting to the leg-side. Next ball, Hetmyer clubs it over deep mid-wicket for six. DC still in this. There's another six - this time, it is over deep mid-wicket. Jamieson under the pump here. Hetmyer follows it up with a brace. SIX! Hetmyer, you beauty. Ends the over with a maximum over long-on. 21 off that over. 25 off 12 needed.
DC 126/4 in 17 Overs: Harshal Patel is back. Pant's still going at run-a-ball. The bowling has been very good from RCB so far but this has still been an unusual innings from Pant. Either Hetmyer or Pant needs to tee off before it's too late. There you go - Hetmyer scythes one over cover for four. Patel erring in line and length and paying the price. 10 off the over. 46 needed off last three.
- TIME OUT -
DC 116/4 in 16 Overs: DROPPED! DDP drops Hetmyer off Jamieson's bowling. Could be a costly drop by Padikkal. It has been a brilliant over from the Kiwi pacer. Just 5 from it. Capitals need 56 runs in 24 balls. The RRR is now 14.00.
DC 111/4 in 15 Overs: Siraj is back. Hetmyer gets his first six of the night - got room outside off and launched it over long-on. Next ball, gets a boundary to deep square leg. Just the late thrust that DC need. Good comeback from Siraj - just three off the remaining balls.
DC 97/4 in 14 Overs: Washington Sundar to bowl out. Very good finish from the TN spinner. The asking rate is starting to climb now. RCB favourites at the moment but they will be wary of Pant. Just 4 off the overs. Delhi Capitals need 75 runs in 36 balls
DC 93/4 in 13 Overs: Harshal Patel into the attack. Pant gets a boundary first ball - could've been a catch for Sundar had he been on the boundary line - and follows it up with another boundary to deep backward point. GONE! Harshal Patel at it again - has Stoinis caught behind! Pant and Stoinis added 45. Shimron Hetmyer joins Pant. 12 runs and a wicket from the over. RRR: 11.2
DC 81/3 in 12 Overs: Sundar into his third over. He goes for just two singles but Stoinis muscles the third ball down the ground for four. Next ball, takes a single and gets off strike. Pant's been dealing in ones and twos for a while now. How long before he tees off? Or is Stoinis going to take risks with Pant anchoring the chase? Meanwhile, Stoinis ends the over with a boundary to long-on. 12 off the over. Delhi Capitals need 91 runs in 48 balls
DC 69/3 in 11 Overs: Yuzvendra Chahal continues. Stoinis sweeps one away for four. Good comeback from Yuzi. Just three off the next five. The required run rate is now 11.44.
DC 62/3 in 10 Overs: Sundar starts off after the break. Pant gets two braces back-to-back. He tries to hit the third delivery out of the park but just clears extra cover. Virat Kohli was running back but he wasn't going to make it. Another couple follows. Nine runs from the over. Capitals need 110 runs in 60 balls.
- TIME OUT -
DC 53/3 in 9 Overs: Chahal into the attack. Outsmarts Stoinis with a googly first ball. No run. AB couldn't latch on to the ball. But Ultra Edge confirms that came off the pad flap Not a drop. Stoinis takes a single and gets off strike. A lbw review against Stoinis. The DRS upholds the on-field call. The ball was crashing into leg stump but Stoinis was three metres down the pitch, so he survived.
DC 50/3 in 8 Overs: Harshal Patel comes into the attack. GONE! Shaw is caught behind. It was a short and wide ball outside off, Shaw chased it and got a faint edge. Marcus Stoinis joins Pant. He brings up DC's 50 with a single. Capitals need 122 runs in 72 balls.
DC 46/2 in 7 Overs: OUT! Washington Sundar traps Pant in front. Pant reviews. Replays show a clear spike on ultra edge as ball passes the bat. Pant survives. He takes a brisk single next ball to get off strike. Three from the over.
DC 43/2 in 6 Overs: Sams is back into the attack. After a couple of good deliveries, Pant slog sweeps Sams for four. He collects a couple off the fifth ball. A slower ball to end the over - Pant gets only a single. End of the powerplay. Capitals need 129 runs in 84 balls.
DC 35/2 in 5 Overs: Jamieson into his second. The focus will be on Pant and Shaw and how they approach this chase. They still have Stoinis and Hetmyer to come after this but these two need to get stuck in. What a good over from the Kiwi - Just two off it.
DC 33/2 in 4 Overs: Siraj continues. GONE! Smith is caught behind. Pant is in next. He gets off the mark with a quick single. This has been a brilliant comeback over from Siraj after being struck for 16 in his first. But puts a dent to the numbers by bowling a low full toss - Shaw carves it away for another four.
DC 27/1 in 3 Overs: Kyle Jamieson comes into the attack. GONE! Two dots later, gets the big wicket of in-form Dhawan . Holes out to Chahal at backward square leg. Steve Smith comes in at 3. He opens his account with a fabulous pull shot for four.
DC 23/0 in 2 Overs: Mohammed Siraj to share the new ball. SHOT! Shaw whips one wide of mid-on for four. Siraj errs in line, drifts down leg-side and concedes 4 leg byes. He follows it up with a delightful straight drive off the slower ball. A brace to end the over.
DC 7/0 in 1 Over: We are in readiness. Shaw takes strike. Sams with the new ball. No movement first up for Sams. Shaw gets off the mark with a single. Dhawan, now, opens his account with a single. This has been a good first over from the Aussie. Ruins it by bowling short - Dhawan pulls it away for four.
There's a sandstorm at the venue right now. We might have a slight delay. We may have a five-minute delay.
AB de Villiers slams 75 in 42 as RCB finish on 171. Delhi were going strong with the ball but with ABD still out there, the danger of a late flourish was always lurking. Rishabh Pant turned to Stoinis for the final over and the move backfired as AB got stuck into the Aussie, collecting 23 off six. ABD struck three fours and five sixes during his innings. ABD is now the quickest to 5000 IPL runs in terms of balls faced: 3288 balls.
DC needs 172 to win.
- INNINGS BREAK -
Stoinis to bowl the last over. He starts with a wide. ABD collects a brace off the first legitimate ball. Next ball, ABD slams a six down the ground. Dot ball. 3 gone, 3 left in the over. Stoinis goes short and ABD clubs it over fine-leg for six. And another one - he is tearing into Stoinis, is ABD, whips it over cover this time. He finishes off with a couple - unbeaten 75 off just 42. What a champion. 23 runs came off the final over. 23.
RCB 148/5 in 19 Overs: Daniel Sams, right handed bat, comes to the crease. Avesh Khan starts with a brilliant yorker. The umpires check for a caught and bowled but the ball has clearly hit that into the pitch. Avesh follows it up with another inch-perfect yorker, de Villiers gets just one. Another yorker - this is brilliant death bowling from Avesh. ABD gets one away to being up his 50! Avesh tonight: 4-0-24-1
RCB 139/5 in 18 Overs : Rabada bowls two back-to-back deliveries in the blockhole. ABD collects three off the first two. The 13-ball boundary drought ends as ABD pumps one over deep mid-wicket for six! GONE! Rabada gets his first wicket - simple caught and bowled chance and Sundar departs. 11 runs and a wicket.
RCB 128/4 in 17 Overs : Avesh Khan back after the second time-out. A brilliant over from Avesh. He continues to have a productive season with the ball. Just four runs off it in the end. Top-drawer stuff.
- TIME OUT -
RCB 124/4 in 16 Overs : Rabada is back into the attack. RCB need a move on. Good for them AB is still out there. de Villiers takes his front foot out of the way and squeezes a yorker past short third for four. Nine runs came off that over.
RCB 115/4 in 15 Overs : Axar Patel to bowl his last. SIX! ABD brings up 5000 IPL runs with a maximum! The partnership between these two is now 50-plus. GONE! Patidar holes out to Smith. He falls for 31 off 22 balls. Sundar comes to the crease. Patel tonight: 4-0-33-1
RCB 105/3 in 14 Overs: Ishant Sharma is back into the attack. How long before ABD tees off? They are content to work the singles at the moment.

RCB 79/3 in 11 Overs: Mishra into his third. Patidar collects his first maximum of the night, a tossed up delivery is hammered down the ground for six. Good way to end the over - just a single off the last ball. 11 from the over.
UPDATE - RCB's Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have left for Australia.
RCB 68/3 in 10 Overs: Axar Patel into his second over. He rushes through his over, does Axar. Five singles before ABD takes a brace to end the over. Lot riding on him. Six off the over.

SIX! Maxwell launches Mishra over long-on for a maximum. It was right in his arc. It was a cross-seam leg-break that was hammered by Maxi. A single off the last ball. 11 from the over.
RCB 36/2 in 6 Overs: Maxwell gets going - a cracking cover drive off Avesh. What a shot. Avesh bowls a slower ball next and Maxwell gets an inside edge onto pad. Good over so far from the youngster. Maxwell takes a quick single and gets off strike. That's the Powerplay done. Six off the over.
RCB 30/2 in 5 Overs: Ishant to Padikkal. OUT! A fiery nip-backer from Ishant cleans up Padikkal. Ishant gets the ball to tail in from the good length and Padikkal fails to press forward. The ball keeps a low trajectory and clips the stumps and RCB loses both openers off successive deliveries. Ishant keeps pumping it in to new man, Glenn Maxwell who fails to open his account. Wicket-maiden for Ishant!
RCB 30/1 in 4 Overs: Avesh Khan comes into the attack. Kohli gets a boundary to third-man, would've been a regulation chance for first slip but the absence of a fielder means easy runs. Make that a hat-trick of dots against Virat. Could've been an excellent over but Avesh bowls a wide last ball. GONE! He gets Kohli with the extra ball. Kohli plays on!
RCB 25/0 in 3 Overs: Ishant continues . Kohli takes a single and gets Padikkal back on strike. The latter nearly holes out but Axar Patel grasses a tough chance... Padikkal gets a couple in the end.

RCB 16/0 in 2 Overs: Rabada to share the new ball. Starts with a dot. FOUR! Not much wrong with the ball - got it to tail into the left-hander and Padikkal whips it to backward square for four.
