New Delhi :  

Delhi Daredevils put up a brave face as they chased down an daunting 186-run target set by Sunrisers Hyderabad and won the match convincingly by six-wickets at Feroze Shah Kotla ground in the Capital on Tuesday. With this, the Delhi team managed to snap a five-match losing streak to stay afloat in the Indian Premier League 2017.

Batting second, the home team started off brilliantly as they consolidated 40 runs in four overs for first wicket. Despite losing wickets, the hosts kept their run rate well above the asking rate. 

Sanju Samson (24), Karun Nair (39), Rishabh Pant (34), Shreyas Iyer (33) and Chris Morris (15 not out) all made valuable contribution to the cause. However, it was Corey Anderson, who scored 41 off just 24 balls with three sixes, that proved vital in the end.

After losing two wickets, star batsman Yuvraj Singh rose to the occasion for the visitors with a superb 70-run knock in 41 balls that helped Hyderabad put a challenging total.

With the win, Daredevils jumped to sixth spot with six points from nine matches while Sunrisers remained at third with 13 points from 11 games.
