Mishra getting some turn but Williamson up to the task as he goes back and plays a delicate late cut pat short thirdman for a four, in the 11th over.

Shami, who was struck in his first over, gets another wicket in his next after he is brought back into the attack.

Williamson looks to pull but he also gets the top edge and is caught at deep square leg for 24 from as many balls.

Delhi have made a good comeback with regular wickets to peg back Sunrisers after a quickfire start as the visitors are reduced to 93 for three in 12 overs.

20:46  Dhawan falls for 28, Sunrisers lose 2nd wicket:  

Sunrisers 83-2 (10 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

Morris makes a good comeback after an expensive first over. He bowls four dot balls in a row to new batsman Kane Williamson, who picks a single off the fifth, for the only run of the over.

Jayant looks to continue to build the pressure on Williamson with another couple of dot balls before he gives it away with a poor delivery. He tries the carrom ball but slips it way down the leg side and Williamson comfortably sweeps it over short fine leg for a six.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra comes into the attack and immediately strikes with his second delivery. Dhawan goes for the sweep but gets a top edge and is caught at deep square leg after a quickfire 28 from 17 balls.

A good start from Mishra, picking up the key wicket of Dhawan, while conceding just three runs.

Jayant to bowl out as he continues, and bowls his fourth and final over. Once again a tidy over, giving away just five singles as he finishes with good figures of 26 runs in four overs.

Sunrisers have slowed down slightly in the last few overs to reach 83 for two in 10 overs, having scored just 17 runs in the last four overs.

20:28  Warner out for 30, Sunrisers lose 1st wicket:  

Sunrisers 66-1 (6 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

Warner turns Rabada on the leg side for a couple before he smashes the next through the off-side for a four followed by three more singles as Rabada goes for nine in his second over.

Morris, who was hit for 15 in his first over, makes way for Mohammed Shami. Warner heaves the first ball over the midwicket fielder for a four before Shami gets revenge off the very next delivery.

Warner looks to make room and again hit through the off-side but is beaten by a perfect yorker from Shami and bowled for a brisk 30 from 21 balls.

Kane Williamson’s first ball slips down the leg side which Shami glances fine for four leg byes. He gets five runs off the next ball as Shreyas Iyer looks for the direct hit but Corey Anderson fails to back up in time and gives away four extra runs.

The last ball is short as Dhawan pulls it square for another four as despite the wicket Shami ends up giving away 17 runs in his first over.

Dhawan has smashed his way to 27 from 13 balls with Sunrisers racing to 66 for one in six overs.


20:22  Dhawan, Warner give Sunrisers a quickfire start:  

Sunrisers 40-0 (4 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

The in-form David Warner walks out to open the batting with Shikhar Dhawan, who is slowly getting back to his best form.

Off-spinner Jayant Yadav, who has made a comeback to the playing eleven, will open the bowling for the hosts.

Warner immediately decides to target Jayant as he looks to sweep but misses and survives a huge shout for leg before wicket. That was very close but Warner is not affected as he punches the next ball through the covers for a four to get off the mark in some style before Jayant responds with four dot balls in a row.

Kagiso Rabada to bowl from the other end. Shikhar Dhawan hits the first ball he faces for a four through the leg side before he takes one. Warner then manages to loft one over the off-side for another four before he takes two runs off the last ball.

Warner has decided not to let Jayant settle down. Two dot balls before he plays the switch hit to perfection, hitting the off-spinner over the off-side for a six.

Chris Morris comes into the attack and suffers at the hands of Dhawan, who hits him for a couple of boundaries and a six as Sunrisers race to 40 for no loss in four overs.
