The tables appear to have genuinely turned in favour of the Delhi Daredevils, as the side which had lost 11 matches in a row coming into this week, just picked up its second win on the bounce in yet another thrilling contest at Vizag.

Having won the toss and decided to bat first, the Delhi Daredevils posted a slightly under par total of 167-4 in their 20 overs with 20 year old opener Shreyas Iyer top scoring with 60 from just 40 balls, whilst getting excellent support from skipper JP Duminy who chipped in with 54 from 41 balls.

The Sunrisers were in an out of the contest with their openers Shikhar Dhawan (18) and David Warner (28) getting out in the same over bowled by Duminy, who decided to take the bull by the horns after his side had conceded 31 runs in two overs.

Ravi Bopara (41) and Lokesh Rahul (24) then stitched together another partnership to keep the Sunrisers very much in the hunt, and the game came down to 10 needed to win from the last over with the ball in the hands of Nathan Coulter-Nile.

The Aussie pacer produced a picture perfect over, conceding just 5 runs, whilst picking up a couple of wickets, one of them being a run out that he affected to help Delhi squeeze out a 4 run win.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: D Warner (c), S Dhawan, KL Rahul, N Ojha (wk), E Morgan, R Bopara, A Reddy, K Sharma, P Kumar, B Kumar, D Steyn
