Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Delhi Capitals by nine runs in match number 41 of IPL 2023 and pushed Delhi further to the last position of the points table. SRH posted 197/6 in the first innings with the help of brilliant fifties from both Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klaasen. Mitchell Marsh stunned everyone by picking four wickets with the ball as he ended up with bowling figures of 4/27 in four overs.

DC chasing 198 runs, lost David Warner quickly for a duck, but despite that, a 112-run partnership between Phil Salt-Mitchell Marsh steadied the ship for them. DC middle-order batters Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, and Sarfaraz Khan crumbled under pressure, and sending Axar Patel too late didn't help Delhi's cause.
