Chennai: Delhi Capitals (DC) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a Super-Over thriller in Match 20 of the IPL 2021 at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 25.

Prithvi Shaw and Kane Williamson top-scored for their respective sides but the contest turned out to be a nail-biter with DC eventually emerging victorious in a close contest.

Chasing a target of 160, SRH openers – David Warner and Jonny Bairstow – got off to a watchful start, scoring 10 in the first two overs.  However, SRH lost their skipper after he was run-out at the striker’s end in the fourth over.

Bairstow continued to take on the DC spinners. Williamson was up and away with two fours as well. With Bairstow's exit, SRH ended the powerplay with a total of 56/2.

The pressure was building on SRH as they required 43 off the final four overs and Axar struck twice in consecutive deliveries. Both – Abhishek Sharma and Rashid Khan – were trapped in front in the 17th over.

Vijay Shankar and the well-settled Williamson added 11 runs off Mishra’s over, with SRH requiring 28 runs off the final two.

Avesh Khan bowled the penultimate over and castled Shankar’s stumps but J Suchith smashed a six and four off the final two balls of the over.

With 16 runs required off the final over, Suchith came to the rescue for SRH and hit Rabada for a four and a six in a thrilling finish to the game. With 2 required off the final delivery, the match was tied and went to a Super Over.

DC went ahead with Axar Patel in the Super Over against Warner and Williamson. SRH only hit one four and set a target of 8 runs after a short-run from Warner on the last delivery.

SRH chose Rashid Khan to defend 8 runs against Dhawan and Pant. The DC skipper reverse swept Rashid for a crucial four on the third delivery. With one run required off the final ball, DC squeezed in a tight run and beat SRH in the Super Over.
