Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals, Match 30, IPL 2019

What can SRH do different tonight against an in-form Delhi Capitals?

----- Welcome to our live blog! Don't forget to send in your tweets to @prat1204 -----

As our user Raghav pointed out, SRH have done a Delhi, losing 8 for 15. And it happened despite a big start from their openers, which tells you what a fetering wound their middle-order is. Even dropping Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan didn't help. Do we see them back next game? Do SRH panic just yet? Do Delhi always play away from home? Interesting questions. Hope you enjoyed the coverage. Cya tomorrow, ta-ta!

A small update: DELHI WIN BY 39 RUNS

I don't have enough fingers, and fingers long enough, to keep up with this collapse. To put it out there: SRH have lost 8 wickets for 15 runs -- the worst 8-wicket collapse in IPL. It's crazy, it's insane. Rabada picked two wickets in one over, Morris betters it with three wickets in the next over, and then Rabada comes back to pick two more. It's summer, and SRH just melted away. I am out of breath, much like the pitch. It had no life. Hitting against the old ball was close to a punishment but not big enough to warrant this royal collapse. SRH have lost their way big time. Delhi, well, you should have seen Ponting and Ganguly jump away, very kid-like. Third consecutive win for Delhi!

Warner, Shankar are OUT

Well, Shankar is out before I could finish typing Warner's dismissal, so here I club them together. Warner was taken by Rabada's slower ball -- they have quite a menace today, aren't they? Vijay Shankar comes in next ball, and is undone by a short sharp ball. Rabada again. Is that bye bye SRH? Possibly.

... And as if that wasn't enough, Chris Morris joins in with two wickets off two balls. Hooda and Rashid Khan gone. Delhi on the brink here.

Paul's slower balls continue to hurt SRH

Ricky Bhui falls. 7 off 12 balls. Taken superbly by Axar Patel at backward point. 55 runs to get off 28 balls. Dean Jones thinks Delhi are onto something. Warner stands in between Delhi and a win, one can say.

More about Keemo's bowling: His back-of-the-hand slower balls have found grip off this pitch. Can't be sure how much dew there is but it's happening for him at the moment. And kudos to Shreyas Iyer for sticking with him at a time Twitter went to war for Amit Mishra. Of course Iyer didn't see Twitter then. Thank god for that.

Warner dropped by Mishra

"Right in the nut basket" .. "I think it's more self preservation" .. That's how Amit Mishra's dropped catch was described on air. It was hit straight back at the bowler by Warner. Hard, fast, flat. Was it in the nut basket? Not quite. A bit higher but gee that was quick. Mishra's hands do well to take the impact off.

Keemo Paul .. Keemo PAUL .. KEEMO PAUL

After Jonny Bairstow, he's picked Kane Williamson with a slower ball. So guys, we were all wrong. Now we know why he's been getting these overs from this end. Blow me down.

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? Depends on Amit Mishra's remaining remaining 3 overs.

@Vishal, melting pot of (gold and) cricketers, yes. But jokes aside, I agree.. IPL is a beautiful place on earth

Where the hell is Amit Mishra?

That title might be a reference to *that* famous video "Where the hell is Matt?" but we have more important matters at hand. The context is a bit different here. Amit Mishra has come to bowl only in the 11th over! Maybe they were waiting for a wicket? Keemo Paul strikes with Bairstow's wicket in the 10th over and bam, here comes Mishra against SRH's soft middle-order. Interesting if this pays off.

Bairstow doing Bairstow things

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?

... Not quite. A couple of quiet overs means they're 40/0 after six overs. Fifth time in seven games SRH haven't lost a wicket in the PP.

Welcome back...

Delhi 155/7 .. It's a bung-up at the death

Last four overs: 29 runs, 3 wickets. They should have done better. Iyer and Pant were going so well at 125/3 in the 16th over, looking set and scoring quick. Iyer was downed by Bhuvneshwar's short ball, Pant then threw it away against Khaleel, giving the latter his third wicket, only for Rashid Khan to come to the party with Morris's wicket. Is a target of 156 enough? Join us back after this short break. For the time being, watch our panelists analyze the innings on Cricbuzz Live

Stats - Rashid Khan in IPL 2019

1 for 26 1 for 24 0 for 25 1 for 18 1 for 27 1 for 20 1 for 22 (this match)

What do you make of those figures? Clearly teams just playing him out. I mean the most he's conceded is 27 runs and the most wickets he's got in a game is 1.

@Levil, true that. If YJB takes off, this chase might be far from quadratic

Pant is out, Morris goes too

Khaleel is having quite a game tonight. You'd have to ask where he was all this while. Comes in to bowl his last over here and strikes second-ball with a low full toss. Pant couldn't quite get under it and holes out to long-on. Well, where's the slog charge going to come from? Morris? He's bowled by a Rashid Khan googly. Wasn't reading him at all.

Final figures for Khaleel: 4-0-30-3

Bhuvneshwar removes Iyer

Now he's had a problem with the short ball, so Bhuvneshwar wasn't bowling anything else. Gets Iyer with the second short delivery of the over, the first one having almost done its job. Iyer makes room and tries to periscope it away ... falls. 125 for 4

Pant, Iyer rally along

121/3 after 15 overs. Run scoring's been right up there despite Munro's wicket, so that's good. Both Pant and Iyer looked a touch vulnerable against Vijay Shankar but they have played Rashid well this evening. Dean Jones thinks they're picking everything out of his hand tonight. You feel No 5 is a better spot for Pant.

Watch Gaurav Kapur and Simon Doull put on cool headphones and talk you through all the cricket till now. And don't we love Doull.

First IPL wicket for Abhishek Sharma

He'd conceded a six only last ball, a shot that delivered Munro to his highest score in IPL. Next ball is a carrom ball again but this one's wide and full outside off. Munro edges behind, departs for 40 off 24 balls. 69 for 3

51/2 after powerplay

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 off 17. Since Khaleel picked Dhawan, he's gone for 22 off 10 balls -- including 2 fours and 2 sixes, all of them hit by Munro. Iyer is stable at the other end, like he's been all season.

India's No 4?

Well, with the World Cup round the corner, expect it to trickle into our discussions. And India are announcing their squad tomorrow, so it's fever pitch time. Dean Jones, on air, has picked Sanju Samson for India's tumultuous No 4 position. Kevin Pietersen picks Shubman Gill. Brian Lara (wisely) picks silence.

Somewhere, Vijay Shankar, KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu cringe. Anyway, have you read this piece on India's selection puzzle by Ganesh Chandrasekaran? Must read.

Dhawan goes too

Moody has taken Khaleel out from the freezer and dropped him straight on the tawa. And isn't he thawing nicely. Gets Dhawan now with the short ball. A pull from outside off-stump? Thank you, says fine leg. 20 for 2

Khaleel Ahmed strikes

An outside edge to the keeper. That ends Shaw's innings tonight. A bit of extra bounce for Khaleel here and that's that. Wicket in the first over of the season too. 11 for 1

It was quite ominous when Brian Lara was discussing Prithvi Shaw's footwork. How he likes to stay back and on leg-stump, allowing himself to get an outside edge on balls on middle-stump. He wanted Shaw to come forward and across, and lean into his shots through cover. Here's Simon Doull discussing his technique.

Colin Munro walks out.

Can I call Khaleel the Shaw-stopper? Okay, no.

Pitch report

Graeme Smith feels there's a little bit of grass, but it's mostly dry. Make what you can make of that. I see the pitch taking more turn that it did earlier in the season. Particularly excited to watch Bairstow make adjustments to his game. He was superb on a stinker of a pitch in Delhi, so keep an eye on him here.

"This is SRH's 100th game in the IPL," Narbavi informs us from Hyderabad (filling in nicely for Deepu who continues to crunch numbers for the KKR-CSK game...)

SRH OPT TO BOWL

The big news first. Kane Williamson finally finds a place and captains the side, and he's come in at the expense of Mohammad Nabi. There are as many as three other changes. No Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey and Siddarth Kaul today; they have been replaced by Abhishek Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed and Ricky Bhui!

Delhi have made two changes. There's a Colin swap - Munro comes in for Ingram, who's flown back home. In the spin department, Mishra comes in for Tewatia. Do they see the pitch taking turn? Keemo Paul keeps his place. Will let ya know as soon as I get hold of the pitch report, okay!

The Playing XIs below:

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Munro, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Keemo Paul, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Kane Williamson(c), Vijay Shankar, Ricky Bhui, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Abhishek Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

From Ground Zero

"Shikhar Dhawan is getting a very good reception from the small gathering here as he makes his way out to the middle," pings Narbavi from the ground. Hyderabad love a mo' twirl, don't they?

Build-up...

Glad we don't sleep like koalas. Imagine waking up to a time when Delhi Capitals are winning games. And Sunrisers Hyderabad losing them. I mean I'd never be able to trust the mystery that time is, as much as the theoretical physicists try to make a fetish out of it.

The last time these two teams met at the Feroz Shah Kotla, I was there, watching Delhi unravel on a pitch Ricky Ponting called the worst of the season. But here they are, back to winning ways the moment they got away from home. Who else flourishes when not under the nose of their parents eh? (Me, me...)

Well, here's the match preview by Narbavi. Reports suggest that he's finding Hyderabad hotter than Chennai. Well, well, could have to do with the lack of that monochromatic, blinding shade of yellow. He's also written about how this can be the last chance saloon for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Do have a read.
