DC 96/6 after 15 overs: Jason Holder makes a decent comeback as he gives nine from his oover and Delhi needs 124 in 30 deliveries.

DC 87/6 after 14 overs: Pant now needs to bat the entire overs and take Delhi as close to the total to avoid a major dent in the net run-rate.

DC 83/6 after 13 overs: Rashid Khan registers his best figures in this IPL as he finishes with 4-0-7-3 including 17 dots. What a bowler and he has put Sunrisers on top.

DC 82/5 after 12 overs: Vijay Shankar strikes as he gets Shreyas Iyer and Delhi skipper's poor form continues. Shankar seems to have injured his left hamstring as David Warner completes the over. Delhi requires 138 runs in 48 balls.

DC 76/4 after 11 overs: Rashid Khan is making things all the more difficult for Delhi as he hives just three and Delhi requires another 144 in 54 balls.

DC 66/4 after 9 overs: Top stuff from Rashid Khan as he has tied down Delhi and the required rate is now 14.

DC 64/4 after 8 overs: Rishabh Pant pulls out an audacious six off Natarajan and Delhi needs more of those. He is joined by skipper Shreyas Iyer.

DC 55/4 after 7 overs: Rashid Khan into the attack and he strikes straightaway with a double-wicket to leave Delhi four down. Rashid first castles Hetmyer and then traps Rahane to put Sunrisers on top.

DC 54/2 after 6 overs: Rahane and Hetmyer with a flurry of boundaries give Delhi some momentum as the 50 comes up and Jason Holder leaks 20 runs from his second over.

DC 34/2 after 5 overs: Alright both Rahane and Hetmyer have made a move on with two boundaries but the asking rate is climbing constantly.

DC 24/2 after 4 overs: Rahane finally manages to get a boundary but it has come off the edge, nevertheless a boundary. Hetmyer needs to tee off.

DC 18/2 after 3 overs: Excellent from Sandeep as he gives just four as Shimron Hetmyer joins Rahane. Delhi in much need for some big overs.

SC 14/2 after 2 overs: Two down in a big chase and Delhi is in trouble. Shahbaz Nadeem strikes as Marcus Stoinis hots straight to Warner at mid-off and Sunrisers calling the shots early.

DC 6/1 after 1 over: Just the start Sunrisers required as Sandeep Sharma removes Shhikhar Dhawan for a duck as the southpaw gets a leading edge and David Warner takes a simple catch. Marcus Stoins joins Rahane and he gets off the mark with a boundary.

Alright we are back for the chase and it will take some batting from Delhi to chase down a mammoth total of 220. Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane are out in the middle and it will be Sandeep Sharma with the new ball. Shreevats Goswami is keeping instead of Saha.

SRH 113/1 after 10 overs: Ashwin strikes and he removes the dangerous David Warner. Bowls slow through the air, Warner fails to get the distance and Axar Patel takes an easy catch. Manish Pandey joins Saha.

SRH 102/0 after 9 overs: Tushar Deshpande keeps the openers quiet as he doesn't concede a boundary but the fielding has been sloppy.

SRH 95/0 after 8 overs: Saha is playing a brilliant cameo and this time charges down the track to smack Ashwin for a boundary. Delhi in need of a breakthrough.

SRH 84/0 after 7 overs: Axar Patel pulls back things a bit as seven come and Delhi take the break. Much needed for them.

SRH 77/0 after 6 overs: A 25-ball 50 for David Warner and what a birthday he is having... Warner takes Rabada to the cleaners as he smokes the pacer for 22 runs, four boundaries and a six! SRH off to a blazing start.

SRH 33/0 after 3 overs: David Warner goes big as he smacks Ashwin over deep square leg for a maximum and Saha sweeps the off-spinner as Ashwin leaks 13 runs in his opening over.

SRH 20/0 after 2 overs: Saha is picking the gaps and has decided to attack straightaway rather than playing the waiting game.

SRH 5/0 after 1 over: Wriddhiman Saha and David Warner are off the mark, Saha finding a boundary with a pull. Nortje ends the over with a peach of a delivery that beat Saha.

Pitch Report by Kumar Sangakkara:  The pitches have started to slow down when you compare the initial games with the ones held few days ago. Batsmen have tried improvising by batting outside their crease and moving around a bit. Bowlers need to vary their pace and hitting the right lengths. Captains will want to chase and put pressure on the team batting first. Once a score is known, they can then pace their innings accordingly.

Head-to-head: (16 matches- SRH 10| DC 6)

The two teams have faced each other 16 times in the IPL so far, and SRH has dominated the fixture by winning it 10 times.

The Preview

The final lap of games leading to the playoffs is a tricky stage in the Indian Premier League. A big-margin victory or an under-par score game can decide the fate of a few teams huddling for the third and fourth spot. An inconsistent Sunrisers Hyderabad will be desperate for victory against Delhi Capitals in Dubai on Tuesday to stay afloat in the tournament.
