We're done with this one, but Indian T20 League action continues. Next up, on Monday, we have Mumbai welcoming Bangalore to the Wankhede Stadium at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join in for that one. Goodnight and take care!

Man of the Match, Keemo Paul says that it is a dream come true for him and thanks everyone for the support. On playing the Indian T20 League, Paul says that it is the biggest league in the world and he just wanted to enjoy it. On his slower deliveries, Keemo says that the back-of-the-hand deliveries came out pretty nicely and it was all about adjusting to the pitch and the conditions. Regarding his batting and the big six that he hit, KP says that he enjoys his batting. Ends by thanking everyone who supported him to get to this level.

Delhi skipper, Shreyas Iyer says that he and Rishabh Pant had decided that they will try to stick around for as long as possible and one of them will take charge due to the slowness of the surface. Mentions that Axar Patel and Keemo Paul's cameos helped them get to a fighting total. Ends by saying that they have good team spirit and wants his side to continue having that.

Kagiso Rabada is caught for a little chat. He says that they had a game plan and they just stuck to it and hoped it to go their way. On his variations, Rabada replies that it's been a trend so far and you have to vary your pace to succeed in this part of the world. Lauds Keemo Paul and Chris Morris for doing a brilliant job. On the leadership role in the squad, Rabada thinks and says that he has the responsibility on his shoulders and he just wants to do his best and do everything for his team. Talking about his catches, Rabada mentions that you have to do your best and also tells that they are working hard in all the departments.

Hyderabad skipper, Kane Williamson says that their bowlers did a great job but admits that they didn't get going in the second half. Terms it as an unfortunate performance and credits Delhi for playing well. Mentions that there is no room for complacency in this tournament and feels that they didn't execute their plans well. States that Delhi adapted well to the demands of the surface and used their change of pace to good effect.

Delhi will be mighty pleased with this performance. They only had a decent score to defend, so the execution was the key. Bairstow and Warner's start would have put most teams off, but when you have the likes of Rabada, Morris and Paul in the team, anything is possible. These three bowlers shared the 10 wickets among them. Paul kicked things off by getting Bairstow and Williamson, then Rabada and Morris cleaned house in the death overs. Paul finished with 3 along with Morris, while Rabada got 4 to his name.

A great performance from Delhi. No better way to sum it up. This could be one of the best bowling displays in the history of the competition. Three consecutive defeats on the bounce for the hosts. Chasing 156, Warner and Bairstow once again got their side off to a good start, adding 72 between them before the Englishman departed. What followed was unimaginable. From 101/2 in the 16th over, they got bundled out for 116 before the 19th over even ended. Barring the two openers, nobody even got into double figures. A truly astonishing fact.

K Rabada to K Ahmed, OUT! Take a bow, Kagiso Rabada. He's wrapped Hyderabad up before the game even goes into the final over. Fires an accurate yorker on the stumps, Khaleel can't do much about it. The furniture behind is rattled and that's the end of this contest. DELHI WIN BY 39 RUNS!

Khaleel Ahmed is the last man in.

K Rabada to B Kumar, OUT! Rabada has his third of the night. Will Hyderabad even survive the 20 overs? A short ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar backs away and tries to slap it. But it goes off the top edge and Rabada runs to the ball at the striker's end and takes it himself, just about avoiding Pant who also comes in to take the catch.
K Rabada to S Sharma, Wide! Short ball but it's too short, wide signalled. And since Pant can't collect it cleanly, the batsmen take a bye.
K Rabada to B Kumar, Full on the stumps, Bhuvi hits it straight back. Rabada tries to cheekily deflect the ball on the stumps at his end with his left foot but it goes wide. A single is taken.
K Rabada to B Kumar, Bhuvneshwar tries to make room, so Rabada follows him with a well-direct bouncer. The batter can't make any sort of connection.
K Rabada to S Sharma, Outside the line of off stump, Sandeep plays it through point and gets to the other end.

Sandeep Sharma walks out to have a go with the bat.

C Morris to A Sharma, OUT! Third of the over for Chris Morris. Hyderabad have just crumbled here. Unreal collapse. Morris comes from around the wicket and bowls it full on the stumps, slower in pace. Sharma is early into the shot and ends up handing a high, yet relatively simple chance to Paul at cover. So, five wickets for 8 runs in the last two overs. Unreal.
C Morris to B Kumar, Goes really full on off stump, Bhuvneshwar pushes it to covers and takes one.
C Morris to A Sharma, Good length delivery in the channel outside off, cut through point for a single. No hat-trick for Morris.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the next batsman for the hosts. He will face the hat-trick ball.

C Morris to R Khan, OUT! Gone first ball! Now it's Morris who's on a hat-trick. Back of a length delivery as the big all-rounder hits the deck hard, Khan takes the pull on and hits it over mid-wicket. Straight down Keemo Paul's throat who takes it safely. From 101/2, Hyderabad are 110/7. Unbelievable.

Rashid Khan enters the field to bat.

C Morris to D Hooda, OUT! Bowled 'em! It's Chris Morris this time who's on the money, he's following up Rabada's good work. Arrows the yorker on leg stump, Deepak Hooda has no idea what to do about it. Too good for him, the leg pole goes for a walk.
C Morris to D Hooda, That's gone in the air but not enough distance on it. Hooda heaves this over mid-wicket. It falls safely and Paul out in the deep moves to his right to mop things up. The batsmen collect a brace.

Chris Morris called back into the attack.

K Rabada to D Hooda, A short delivery which has been pulled away down to fine leg. The batsmen have run through for a single. A game-changing over truly, two wickets and 4 runs from it.
K Rabada to D Hooda, Perfect! A yorker speared on the stumps, Hooda just about manages to keep it out.
K Rabada to A Sharma, No hat-trick for Rabada, but he's still got a smile on his face. Sharma lofts it down towards long on for a single.

Abhishek Sharma to bat next for Hyderabad. He will face the hat-trick ball.

K Rabada to V Shankar, OUT! Two in two for Rabada! Is this the game for Delhi? Exceptional bowling, this. He hits the deck hard this time at great pace, Shankar looks to pull but the bounce gets too big on him. Ends up getting a top edge which balloons behind. Pant moves to his right, gets under the ball and gobbles it up in front of short third man.

Deepak Hooda next out to bat.

K Rabada to D Warner, OUT! Kagiso Rabada has got the danger man. Hyderabad in real trouble here. The set batsman and Hyderabad's best bet has been dismissed here. The Protea takes the pace off this one and bowls it full, Warner clears his front leg and looks to go big downtown. Mistimes it and skies it towards Iyer at mid off, who takes a safe catch settling under the ball after going back.
K Rabada to D Warner, Fifty up for David Warner, his 40th in the Indian T20 League. It's taken him a while to get here, and now he'll want to kick on and finish things. He lofts this full ball towards long on and takes a couple of runs.

Kagiso Rabada is brought back on to bowl.

K Paul to D Warner, Length ball outside off, cut to point by Davey for one run. Excellent spell from Paul comes to an end, he finishes with figures of 4-0-17-3.
K Paul to D Warner, Quite slow through the air, hurled outside off, Warner is too early into the shot and he edges it behind. But it's so slow that the edge doesn't carry to the keeper. Everybody is having a laugh.
K Paul to V Shankar, Angling in on middle and leg, full in length, flicked away on the leg side for a single.
K Paul to D Warner, Length delivery on middle and leg, Warner works it in front of mid-wicket and takes a quick run.

Strategic break. Another wicket down for Hyderabad. Delhi are creeping back into the game, and growing stronger in position, but Warner's presence in the middle will keep them wary and he is undoubtedly the key if the hosts are to win. There are some hitters left to come, so anything could happen. Hyderabad need 55 runs in 28 balls. Also, Vijay Shankar is the new batsman in.

K Paul to R Bhui, OUT! Ricky Bhui's scrappy stay in the middle comes to an end. Maybe a blessing in disguise for Hyderabad. Slower and fuller outside off, Bhui makes room and throws his bat at it. Gets a thick edge which goes towards short third man. Axar Patel from backward point moves to his left and takes a good diving catch.
K Paul to D Warner, Low full toss on off stump, Warner smashes it to long off and takes a single.

Keemo Paul is back on.

A Mishra to D Warner, Terrific length by Mishra. Hits the yorker area on middle, Warner digs it out past the diving bowler to long off for a run. What an over, just 5 from it and also a dropped catch of Warner. 56 needed in the last five overs. Yet another close finish on the cards.
A Mishra to R Bhui, Powerful shot but just a single. Short in length and wide outside off, Bhui slaps it through extra cover for one.
A Mishra to D Warner, Full and on the pads again, Warner flicks it to deep mid-wicket for a run.
A Mishra to D Warner, Quicker one on the pads, Warner tries to flick but misses.
A Mishra to D Warner, Warner is dropped! Mishra puts it down in his followthrough. A flatter delivery, landing short and outside off, Warner flat-bats it right back to the bowler who fails to take the return catch. David smiles after getting a life.
A Mishra to D Warner, Shortish delivery, wide outside off, Warner reaches out for it and slaps it to wide long off. Wants the second run, Bhui pauses for a while but then completes the second run. David wants maximum strike now.
C Morris to D Warner, Just short of the fielder! Warner fetches a short ball from outside off and plays a half-pull shot in the air over mid-wicket. Shaw rushes forward from the deep but it falls in front of him. A single to complete an 11-run over.
C Morris to D Warner, FOUR! This over has certainly eased all the nerves in the Hyderabad camp. A low full toss outside off, Warner hangs on the back foot and goes boom over covers for a boundary.
C Morris to R Bhui, Aerial but safe! Short in length and on off, Ricky pulls it in the air over square leg. It drops in front of the fielder in the deep and they cross. 66 needed off 38 balls.
