Bottom ranked team of the tournament Delhi Daredevils achieve a vital 6-wicket win over defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad, at the Feroze Shah Kotla Stadium, in New Delhi, on Tuesday.

SRH got off to a great start after being put in to bat first by DD skipper Karun Nair, as David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan came out all guns blazing. Although the likes of Mohammed Shami and Amit Mishra broke the momentum a little bit, Yuvraj Singh provided a grandstand finish to the innings, smashing an unbeaten 70 off 41 balls, to help SRH put up a challenging total of 185 for 3.

The total seemed to be enough for SRH to notch-up yet another win, but DD openers Sanju Samson and Karun Nair came out firing on all cylinders. Captain Karun smashed a quickfire 39 from 20 balls at the top of the order, giving DD the perfect momentum.
