Best match in the Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad head-to-head
Back on April 25, 2021, the Capitals and the Sunrisers locked horns in an absolute thriller. After 40 overs of jaw-dropping action, the match went into the Super Over where the Capitals came up trumps.
Here is a look at how the match unfolded:
After opting to bat first, the Capitals scored 159 for the loss of four wickets. Prithvi Shaw was their standout batter after he scored 53 runs off 39 balls with seven fours and one six.

Avesh Khan lent him support by picking up the crucial wickets of Bairstow, Virat Singh and Vijay Shankar. In the one-over eliminator, Warner and Williamson could only collect seven runs. Yet another time, it was Axar Patel, who did not allow the SRH batters to get on top of him.
The Sunrisers tried to make a match out of it as Rashid Khan tried his heart out in the Super Over. In the end, Dhawan ran a leg bye in the last ball to see SRH across the finish line.
