TOSS: SRH won the toss and have opted to bowl first

So the big news is that Kane Williamson finally finds a place and captains the side, and he’s come in at the expense of Mohammad Nabi.

Prithvi Shaw & Colin Munro walks out to bat for DC

Wicket! Khaleel Ahmed strikes

An outside edge to the keeper. That ends Shaw’s innings tonight. A bit of extra bounce for Khaleel and Shaw is a goner. DC 11/1

Dhawan goes as well!

Where were you buddy after all this time? Khaleel Gets Dhawan now with the short ball. A pull from outside off-stump? Thank you, says fine leg. DC 20/2

At the end of the Powerplay DC 51/2

Only the second time SRH have conceded 40+ in the powerplay in IPL 2019. Munro has taken off at the No. 3 position; he’s 30 runs off 17 balls and Skipper Shreyas Iyer is calm as always at the other end.

Debut IPL wicket for Abhishek Sharma

He’d conceded a six only last ball, a shot that delivered Munro to his highest score in IPL. This time he bowls a wide and full outside off. Munro edges behind as he departs for 40 off 24 balls. DC 69/3

Pant, Iyer steady the ship!

DC 121/3 after 15 overs.

Bhuvi gets Skipper!

Shreyas Iyer has’d problem with the short balls and Bhuvi does exactly that as Shreyas tries to periscopes it falls to it. DC 125/4

Pant is goner!

Khaleel comes to bowl his last over and on the second ball, he bowls a low full toss and Pant bangs it straight to long-on. DC seems to be in-a-hurry to finish things off.

A Rashid special ends Morris stay!

He wasn’t picking him at all as he’s bowled by a googly.

___________________________________________________________________________

SRH needs 156 runs to get off 120 balls

Jonny Bairstow & David Warner comes out to open

The Bairstow show”

Couple of boundaries against Ishant, a six against Morris… he’s back to bashing ’em. Warner is more sedate. Will the SRH kill the chase in the powerplay?

Nah that’s not happening. A couple of quiet overs means SRH 40/0 after six overs.

Keemo Paul gets the Englishmen!

A Englishman is caught by a South African off the bowling of a West Indian to bring a New Zealander to the crease while an Australian is at the Non-Striker’s end

KEEMO PAUL you beauty!

After Jonny Bairstow’s wicket, he’s picked Kane Williamson with a slower ball. Oh that’s why he’s been getting these overs from this end.Take-a-bow Keemo Paul!

More importantly. Williamson’s catch is taken at a straightish mid-off, which was a very deliberate position. Are Delhi onto something here? Can they make it three wins in a row? That Depends upon leg-spinner Amit Mishra’s remaining remaining 3 overs.

Warner dropped by Mishra

Gee that a difficult one but put down. As David Warner hit that straight back to bowler where Mishra gets hand onto that one but it was slightly higher. This is Delhi Capitals game to lose from here-on if they don’t remove Warner asap.

Keemo Paul continue to hurt SRH!

As Ricky Bhui falls for 7 off 12 balls. The catch was superbly taken by Axar Patel at backward point.

Equation says SRH needs 55 runs to get off 28 balls.

SRH coach Dean Jones thinks Delhi are onto something. Warner stands in between Delhi and a win, I reckon.

Warner, Shankar departs!

Warner was taken by Rabada’s slower ball — they have quite a battle today, hadn’t they? Vijay Shankar comes in next ball, and is undone by a short sharp ball. Rabada again. Is that bye bye for the SRH? Possibly i think.

DELHI CAPITALS WIN BY 39 RUNS

I don’t have enough fingers and long enough, to keep up with this collapse. SRH have lost 8 wickets for 15 runs. The worst 8-wicket collapse in IPL. It’s crazy, it’s insane. SRH have lost their way big time. Well, you should have seen DC coaches Ricky Ponting and Saurav Ganguly jump like-a-kid.Third consecutive win for Delhi!
