DC win by eight wickets
Shreyas Iyer makes a comeback and strokes unbeaten 47 to take DC to an easy win. Dhawan chipped in with 42 and Pant got unbeaten 35. A day to forget for SRH. Warner fell on the third ball of the match and they kept losing wickets. They were 90 for 6 at one stage as Nortje, Rabada and Axar Patel kept the pressure on SRH.
DC go on top of the table as well with this win.
15 overs done – DC 99 for 2; Need 36 more
Deepu Narayanan @deeputalks Not a single over bowled by Powerplay specialist Sandeep Sharma in the Powerplay… #DCvSRH 04:25 PM • Sep 09, 2021
Rashid gets Dhawan but can SRH make things interesting from here on? Dhawan goes for the sweep and gets caught at square leg.
DC 73 for 2
10 overs done – DC 69 for 1
It's time for the first time out of the chase and DC are easing towards the target at 51 for 1 in eight overs. They need 84 off 72 with Shikhar Dhawan batting on 32.
Powerplay done – DC 39 for 1
Stunner from Williamson
Kane the Superman. Slower ball and floated well outside off. Shaw reached out and wanted to hit it over mid-on. Doesn't connect well and it was going away from the SRH captain but he judged it perfectly and caught it with both hands behind him.
DC 21 for 1
Shaw and Dhawan out to open. Khaleel has the ball. Ease chase for DC?
SRH post 134 for 9
A late recovery from SRH as Abdul Samad (28) and Rashid Khan (22) help the side recover from the wobble in the middle overs. They were 90 for 6 in 15 overs and have scored 44 in the last five overs for the loss of four wickets. DC still in control but SRH bowlers now have a total they can work with.

SRH – 100 for 6 in 17 overs
Deepu Narayanan @deeputalks Six boundaries in 13 overs. One of which came off a misfield and another of a free hit. An exhibition of how not to bat in a T20. They have been by some distance the worst boundary hitting team in this IPL cycle since 2018. #DCvSRH 03:06 PM • Sep 09, 2021
Two for Axar
Shaw holds on. Tossed up and Holder plays a powerful drive. The ball flew to Shaw at short cover and though he was in a good position, the ball burst through his hands. He still manages to grab on to it.
SRH 90 for 6
Pant is going for the kill and the bowlers are delivering. Full, straight and Jadhav misses the tuck to the on side. Given lbw. He not only loses his wicket, he losses the team review as well.
SRH 74 for 5 in 13 overs
And Manish Pandey falls now. Leading edge back to the bowler and Rabada completes a simple catch. He was on a hat-trick but Samad denies him.
SRH 65 for 4
10 overs done – SRH 60 for 3
A scratchy little period for both teams. Williamson was dropped by Pant off Ashwin's bowling. Then Williamson presented another dolly to Shaw by playing a drive and was dropped again. This time Axar was the bowler. Williamson comes down the track and lofts a catch to long-off. Three opportunities in five balls. But with the wicket, DC in total control now.
SRH get to 32 for 2 in six overs. Rabada picked the second wicket when he dismissed Saha in the fifth over. It's not been easy but SRH have Kane Williamson out in the middle and will bank on him to take the side to a fighting total.

SRH lose review
Kane Williamson walks in and starts with a straight drive past mid-on. The next ball he was hit on the pad but had an inside edge. DC reviewed the decision and lost it. The SRH captain then ends the over with a boundary.
SRH 6 for 1
Wicket third ball
Serious heat from Nortje and he's dismissed Warner on the third ball of the game. Back of length ball and Warner wanted to tuck that to the on side. Leading edge and an easy catch for Axar Patel at point.
SRH 0 for 1
Alrighty then, Warner and Saha will open for SRH. Nortje has the ball and we are all set …
TOSS – SRH opt to bat. Warner is back; no Steve Smith for DC
SRH – David Warner, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
DC – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan
IndianPremierLeague @IPL What does the pitch have in store? 🤔 🤔 #VIVOIPL #DCvSRH 01:13 PM • Sep 09, 2021
Hello and welcome to the live blog of the IPL contest between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
T Natarajan has tested positive but the clash will go ahead as scheduled. Six of Natarajan's close contacts including all-rounder Vijay Shankar placed in isolation.
And before we get going, here's something from Ganesh Chandrasekaran about the clash –
Will David Warner be welcomed back into the SRH set up? Stripped off captaincy midway through the season and then axed from the XI for the game against Rajasthan Royals has meant this has been his worst IPL season, by some distance. But the pandemic-induced break has led to a few changes in dynamics thereafter. SRH are no longer with the services of this season's most successful batsman – Jonny Bairstow – from that first half. That leaves an opening for SRH's most successful batsman (all-time) a shot at redemption.
But with six losses from seven games so far, his team might not have a similar shot this season. So tumultuous has their season been that they constantly changed around with their playing elevens, making as many as 15 changes and never playing with successive elevens. But individuals stand to gain a lot with performances in this half of the tournament, particularly with the T20 WC nearing and good performances here are likely to get them further ahead in the rat race.
That race will find some echo in their opposition ranks as well. For the likes of Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan – who set the first half alight with 512 partnership runs as openers – will consider themselves unfortunate to miss out on a spot in the World Cup squad. But they'd recognise that this part of the tournament could cement their place as frontrunners in case a back up is sought.
The return of Shreyas Iyer also provides the team with additional balance, alluded head coach Ricky Ponting. This means that there is a chance that Delhi could plug their leak in the death overs by getting the successful pair of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada back together. In Iyer's absence, Nortje didn't feature in the first half with Delhi looking towards Steve Smith's batting for the balance of their side. And Iyer himself will be keen to get his way back up in the pecking order for India.
The subtexts thus could mean that Delhi, who are already in the second spot in the points table, feel further strengthened and closer to their first eleven of choice. And as a young captain, Rishabh Pant could not possibly ask for more leading in to the business end of the tournament.
