Despite valiant efforts by Colin Munro (40 off 24) and Shreyas Iyer (45 off 40), Delhi Capitals could only score a modest 155/7 as host Sunrisers Hyderabad's bowlers bowled decently on a good batting track.
Asked to bat, Delhi's innings started on a poor note -- losing openers Prithvi Shaw (4) and Shikhar Dhawan (7) -- with just 20 runs on board in 3.2 overs. Khaleel Ahmed accounted for wickets of both the Delhi openers.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar cut short Shreyas' stay as the Delhi skipper tried to ramp a short delivery over the Hyderabad keeper but failed in execution. A slight edge off him was easily caught by Johnny Bairstow.
Just three ball later, Khaleel scalped his third, packing off Pant (23 off 19) in the 16th over. This left Delhi reeling at 127/5.
Delhi's lower middle-order -- Chris Morris (4 off 8), Keemo Paul (7 off 4), Axar Patel (unbeaten 14 off 11) and Kagiso Rabada (2 off 2) could only add 24 runs in the last three overs as Delhi failed to reach a big total.
For Hyderabad, Khaleed was the pick of the bowlers with 3/30, while Bhuvneshwar bagged two wickets.
