SRH vs DC IPL T20 Match Live Score: The Sun rose for Sunrisers, finally! The Aiden Markram-led side has ended its losing streak of three matches by this win at Arun Jaitley Stadium. This is the first win by SRH against DC since 2020. It was predicted to be a low-scoring match with the kind of pitch that Kotla has. But Abhishek Sharma and Klaassen changed the grammar tonight and powered the Sunrisers to a mega total of 197.
After winning the toss in the evening, Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Aiden Markram announced that his side would bat first. The Kotla ground with its low-scoring pitch made it an ideal decision. Abhishek Sharma slammed (67) helped SRH to maintain the momentum even as the wickets kept falling. The powerplay didn’t give a flying start to the Orange Army. Ishant Sharma and Mitchell Marsh took one wicket each and SRH were two down in the early phase of the match. Marsh single-handedly destroyed the batting lineup of Sunrisers with those four wickets. Captain Aiden Markram didn’t score much and Harry Brook went for duck. In the last five overs, Sunrisers added 62 runs the total giving a mammoth target to Delhi Capitals.
Later in the evening, the chase didn’t start well for DC as they lost skipper David Warner to brilliant bowling by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Marsh and Salt overcame that shock and kept it going for DC. The second wicket partnership between Marsh and Salt yielded more than 100 runs. Both powered the chase for DC with those big shots. Mayank Markande dropped Marsh’s catch, and it seemed that luck was with Marsh tonight. But the young bowler redeemed himself as he got rid of Salt. From that moment on, Capitals kept losing wickets regularly. Manish Pandey, Mitch Marsh and Priyam Garg were bundled up quickly.

Match Ended ( Day – Match 40 ) Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Capitals by 9 runs
Bhuvi defended the score superbly in the last over except for that six by Axar Patel. Marsh and Salt kept the home team in the hunt and at one point it looked that DC were on their way for a comfortable win. But that didn’t happen as the SRH spinners sent DC batters packing and from the time Salt walked back to dugout, DC batting never really recovered.
SRH have got those two points keeping them alive in the playoff race. As for DC, now every single match will be a must-win if they want any chance in the next stage.
Here are key moment of SRH vs DC match from Arun Jaitley stadium:
The brilliant knock by Mitch Marsh and Phill Salt went in vain as Sunrisers defeated Capitals by 9 runs. There was that big 6 and a boundary in the last over by Axar Patel. But it wasn't enough for the home team tonight.
All eyes are on Axar Patel. Can he do it? Can he pull it off? It is possible. We have seen it earlier! Remember Rinku Singh? Will we see that happening here at Kolta?
What a sheer collapse of DC's batting! Are they in the hunt or not? The answer seems to be more of no here! Can Axar Paytel do a Klaassen for DC?
Marsh's 63 off 39 blitz helped DC in the mega chase. But Hosein ended that terrific innings. From being ahead of te asking rate, the home team is under pressure now.
Our last post didn't age well! Abhishek Sharma got rid of Manish Pandey and suddenly Sunrisers are back in the game.
It was just what Sunrisers needed. Excellent bowling by Mayank Markande as he get Salt. Manish Pandey is here to bat. But the point remains, can Sunrisers get a few more wickets to get back in the game? We saw how Umran Malik's pace failed. Can Orange Army change the game?
Mitch Marsh destroyed SRH batters with the bowl and now is hammering bowlers with the bat. Just the kind of stuff dreams are made of! With strike rate of 181.48, Marsh's 50 off 27 makes the target of 198 not that big though. Both him and Salt have scored half-century each. The CRR is 10.29 against asking rate of 9.47.
After the loss of Warner's wicket, it seemed that DC were under pressure. But Mitch Marsh And Salt have kept the pressure off the home team for now. DC scored 57 at the loss of 1 wicket during the powerplay. Markram has brought in Umran Malik but those 4s and 6s are proving to be counter-effective for SRH! Marsh just smoked one out of park! Unstoppable this one!
24 times Bhuvneshwar Kumar has got wicket in the first over of the IPL and the good show continued at Kotla as he got David Warner on the second ball of the chase. Mitch Marsh is here to bat. Can he make the impact with the bat tonight?
SRH didn't make it to 200 but the target of 198 is still massive on a pitch like this. The last five overs changed the game for SRH as they were able to score over 60 runs in the final phase. Abhishek Sharma and Klaasen powered the Sunrisers to a huge total in Kotla
Klaasen is superb right now with those big shots. Hosein has also joined the party, As the first innings enters last over, the question remains – can Sunrisers put 200 on the scoreboard? Nortje is bowling the last over.
Mitch Marsh gets Samad, this being his fourth wicket of the evening. Absolutely splendid figures – 4/14
SRH were five down at 110. Since then, Samad and Klaasen have kept Sunrisers ticking. Those two back-to-back sixes demonstrate Klaasen's brute force. Marsh has been reintroduced. Another wicket in offing?
Things don't look good for Sunrisers Hyderabad particularly after that devastating over by Mitch Marsh. Both Markram and Brook were sent back thanks to brilliant catches by Axar Patel. While it looked that Abhishek Sharma is batting unfazed, Patel ended his fabulous innings. Sharma smashed 67 off 36
Ishant Sharma delivers and we are not surprised! Mayank Agarwal goes for five. Rahul Tripathi has come to bat. Sunrisers are making the most of the powerplay because there are lot of chances that match will get slower during he middle overs. That's why, these boundaries are so crucial for SRH.
Abhishek Sharma's OUT decision has been overruled and this must be a breather for the Sunrisers. Nortje doesn't look happy, obviously! Remember, this is a low-scoring pitch so batters need to do a lot to get those runs on the scoreboard.
In this Sharma vs Sharma, Sunrisers are scoring! Those two back-to-back boundaries by Abhishek Sharma shows Sunrisers are here for win!

Ishant Sharma is back and how! The pacer has returned to DC camp after 2021 and has instantly made his presence felt. Since he arrived, DC have won two back-to-back games. Can he do this again for DC tonight?
This may not be a high-run explosion match. The pitch tends to be slower with avg first innings score of 160-170. So, there may not be smashing shots but we can definitely expect a low-run thriller!
