Match Report
Shaw, Pant and Paul knock Hyderabad out, advance to second qualifier
Prithvi Shaw (56 off 38) and Rishabh Pant (49 off 21) helped Delhi Capitals knock Sunrisers Hyderabad out of the IPL 2019 with a two-wicket victory

Scorecard Summary

Sunrisers Hyderabad
Delhi Capitals
Paul has done it, swatted into the deep and Shankar can't get anything behind it so Delhi sneak home by the skin of their teeth. That was the IPL at it's absolute best, high drama and thrilling entertainment from start to finish. Two quality teams went hard at each other and in the end Delhi Capitals have emerged victorious by just two wickets with one ball to spare. When Rishabh Pant struck 22 runs from the 18th over it looked as though the Sunrisers were dead and buried, before Bhuvneshwar Kumar kept their hopes alive with two wickets in the 19th over. There was tension when Amit Mishra was dismissed for obstructing the field, but the Capitals kept their nerve with Keemo Paul hitting the winning runs. SRH will regret none of their batsmen kicking on to make a big score earlier in the day, something Prithvi Shaw did in the chase with a majestic 56. Rashid Khan looks distraught to be on the losing team after his 2/15 kept Sunrisers alive, in the end though the better team have triumphed. We'll be back on Friday to see how Delhi go against the mighty CSK.

19.5 - K Ahmed to K Paul

Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Shankar.
Drama, all sorts going on here. Scenes in Visakhapatnam. The batsmen try to sneak through for a bye and in the end Mishra changes his line to get between the bowler and the non-striker's stumps. Khaleel is utterly convinced this should be out for obstructing the field. First we check for a caught behind but that never looked likely, and in the end the third umpire says Mishra is out for obstruction. Correct decision in the end.
