Surisers Hyderbad continued their rise up the IPL table with yet another convincing victory, this time over Delhi Daredevils, at the Feroze Shah Kotla, on Saturday.

- Scorecard

They prevailed over Delhi by eight wickets in a rain-hit game.

Put in to bat, Delhi frittered away a good start and posted a modest 143 for seven in the game which witnessed as many as four rain interruptions, forcing the Duckworth/Lewis method to come into effect.

Thus, Sunrisers needed 43 off five overs and they knocked off the runs in 4.2 overs.

Naman Ojha finished the game for Sunrisers with two massive sixes, with four balls to spare.

Kevin Pietersen promoted himself as opener and managed to shrug off some patchy form.

He first smashed Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a boundary through covers, and then got an outside edge off the next ball for second boundary from the over.

But he came into his own against leg-spinner Karn Sharma, smashing him for a six and boundary in the next over.

Mayank Agarwal, too, wasn’t far behind as he announced his arrival with a superb boundary off Dale Steyn.

Moises Henriques came in for some rough treatment in his opening over as Pietersen took a liking to his pace, dispatching a friendly half-volley into the stands and one straight past the bowler.

Shikhar Dhawan introduced Amit Mishra into the attack and the move paid off. 

The bowler induced a false stroke from Pietersen and the Delhi skipper was caught at cover after a promising 35. 

His innings included four boundaries and two massive sixes, as he added 44 runs for the second wicket with Agarwal.

Agarwal too perished playing a loose shot in Mishra’s second over, caught at mid-wicket by David Warner for 25.

Dinesh Karthik and Laxmi Shukla combined well for Delhi and the duo put on a crucial 55-runs stand for the fourth wicket.

However, at the start of 14th over, the umpires decided to call for the pitch covers anticipating rain, which came shortly afterwards, resulting in loss of play for an hour.

When play resumed, Karthik took on the bowling, looking to up the ante.  

He hit Karn Sharma for a six and boundary as it looked as if Delhi would put up a competitive score.

However, Henriques dismissed Karthik and Shukla in the same over to peg Delhi back.

JP Duminy couldn’t deliver as he was castled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Just at the start of the chase rain returned to stop play again.

Sunrisers were given a revised target of 117 from 15 overs.

Siddharth Kaul provided Delhi a glimmer of hope, when he removed Shikhar Dhawan for four.

Dhawan was caught at point by JP Dumniy.

However, rain was playing spoilsport as it continued to play hide and seek.

Finally, Sunrisers were given a target of 43 from five overs.

Rahul Shukla castled Aaron Finch for 4, but Naman Ojha finished the game with two massive sixes to hand Delhi yet another defeat.
