Sunrisers hold nerve to move fourth

A blitzy half-century from Kedar Jadhav, only his second in the IPL, brought the required run-rate for Delhi Daredevils from almost 12 with eight overs remaining down to less than eight in the last three overs, but ran out of steam on the last stretch

11.30pm Kedar Jadhav did everything right initially, as Daredevils' top order didn't do all the right things in the beginning, and got the chase under control. But he lost his timing in the second half and Sunrisers' bowlers bowled very well, in the right areas with the right field to get the match back in their favour. Which means Delhi Daredevils have been knocked out as well...

JP Duminy: With three overs to go I thought we had a chance but Bhuvi bowled exceptionally and changed the game. They batted extremely well and ran between the wickets, kept us on our toes. 160 was definitely chaseable and we lost too many wickets upfront. Kedar batted exceptionally well but things didn't go our way. The pitch was slightly sticky at times.

David Warner: Good fight back from us after the first six overs. 150-160 was going to be par and a great innings Moises played there, great support from Karn and Bhuvi. We had to take early wickets and credit to de Kock's innings, he took us by surprise. Credit goes to Ishant for the way he came back after the game against Chennai. With two set batsmen, legspin would've come on the bat nicely in the end, I had given Karn a break initially. If a few decisions had gone our way initially the situation would have been different for us. Unfortunate for Steyn and Boult to miss out.

Man of the Match Henriques: Nice to get an extended run in the team which makes one feel more comfortable. Early on I was struggling a bit in the innings and was looking to take the innings deeper by batting more and more. Last game Morgs came off and this time it happened to me, so nice to see the team chipping in. I'm not as nervous now as I used to be, it's a game of cricket and I try to enjoy that. Bhuvi bowled very well in the end and that swung the game in our way.

That's all from us on this Saturday night. Join us on Sunday as well for the double-header as the league stage gets tighter and tighter to seal the playoff berths. Until then, good bye and good luck. This is Vishal D signing off, ciao!

Ravi: "Very poor captaincy from dumny... Daredevils deserve loss"

Nahush: "De Kock & Jadhav - 113 off 65 balls. Rest of DD - 40 off 55 balls."

Rakesh: "DD made a huge blunder in the tournament by giving too many chances to Mathews in place of Albie. Their first match strategy of playing Albie at No.3 was actually a good plan."

Chiranjeev: "I guess it was that single denied by JPD to QDK that changed the match in SRH's favor"

Teja: "Both teams were even except one has BK who can bowl yorkers at will." Where's the mark?

I Sharma to Jadhav, no run, it's a dot ball as KJ drills the full delivery down the ground and Ishant stops. He then throws the ball high in the air to celebrate. 16 conceded by him in his last two overs

Warner joins Ishant for the field again - fine leg and third man in the circle. Long on and long off in the deep

I Sharma to Tiwary, 1 run, full delivery now, doesn't time the slog on the leg side as it goes along the ground to deep midwicket

I Sharma to Jadhav, 1 run, dropped at short fine leg, very tough chance though. Poor short delivery, KJ mistimes it again and it went to the right of PK. He put in a dive but couldn't hold on to it when he landed and one more run

I Sharma to Jadhav, 2 runs, there's a run-out chance - KJ mistimed the pull off the short ball as it landed near the circle at midwicket region. They come back for the second by the time the fielder from the deep comes in and he doesn't get a direct hit

Warner and Ishant decide the field - fine leg is on, backward square leg is deep
