Here's the report for the match.

Williamson Dhawan lift Hyderabad to second

Chasing 192 Iyer and Samson make a fight of it but Kaul Bhuvneshwar hold nerve to wrap up 15 run win

Kane Williamson: Sitting on the bench, the guys have done a fantastic job thus far,so fortunate to get a game. It was very good surface, and it was very important to get a good score at the start. A lot of credit at how the bowlers bowled, at the death. The guys who came in and smacked it at the end provided the icing on the cake to get us over 180. I was just trying to play the situation. With the power players like Yuvi and Ojha coming in, you look to up the tempo. It is nice to have guys performing. Our fielding has improved, something we focus on every game. A little niggle (on his injury), but probably not going to do too much damage hopefully.
David Warner: It was an outstanding performance by the guys. Kane was just fantastic, he and Shikhar gave a great platform for the guys. it is really great, the number of people we have someone is going to miss out. We are all looking to put our best foot forward each time we are out there. We always knew that when we bat first we need 170+ and Kane played with a nice easy tempo, so did Shikhar. During the timeout we just thinking whether to give the youngster (Siraj) the ball or Yuvi to change it around a little bit. But the youngster was excellent, we backed him and he delivered. It was an exceptional final over by Kaul, and Bhuvi like always was all class. A little bit sore (on his injury). I hurt my rib cage while diving for the ball.
Player of the match - Kane Williamson
Zaheer Khan: I felt it was a decent total to chase. That last over is going to haunt me for sure. Buvi was just fanstastic, the lengths that is he bowling he is in complete command. We could have chased this, I felt. These things happen in cricket (Karun air run-out), no complaints there. On the whole the morale of the team is really good. We just need to get on a winning role, and that is very crucial for us in the tournament.
A complete performance by the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling unit, and with that they have moved into second place in the points table. 191 was always going to be tough, but Delhi did give it a decent fight. They were going great guns, courtesy Sanju Samson and Karun Nair, but that one over by Yuvraj Singh changed the coyrse of the match completely. Nair got run out, and then Rishabh Pant was dismissed first ball to give Hyderabad the opening.
