Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Delhi Daredevils by four runs in the Indian Premier League.

An innings of 88 from Aaron Finch has helped Sunrisers Hyderabad overcome Delhi Daredevils by four runs in the Indian Premier League.

The Australian one-day opener put on 56 with Shikhar Dhawan for the first wicket before the Indian player was dismissed by Shahbaz Nadeem for 33 off 22 balls.

That was Delhi's only wicket during the 20 overs as Finch and David Warner dominated at the crease, with Finch hitting four sixes on the way to a 53-ball 88 while Warner contributed 58 off 45 balls as their team made 184-1.

The Daredevils began their reply at a rapid pace but after Quinton de Kock fell for 48, their innings lost momentum as Hyderabad picked up regular wickets.

Murali Vijay added 52, but after Kevin Pietersen was removed for just 16 near the end of the 20 overs, Delhi looked out of contention.

JP Duminy attempted a late assault in the last over but he couldn't manage to hit a six off the final ball to force a super over.
