Cricket fans can watch live online as the action-packed 2015 IPL season continues with the Delhi Daredevils invading Visakhapatnam to face Sunrisers Hyderabad in a match pitting two 1-2 teams, with Delhi riding high after their first win — but Hyderabad needing to recover after a heartbreaking final-ball home loss to the table-topping Rajasthan Royals.

The eighth edition of the IPL has already provided plenty of edge-of-your seat entertainment with several games going down to the final ball in a tournament that is still less than two weeks old.
Royals’ James Faulkner broke the hearts of Australian Captain David Warner and his Hyderabad squad by doing it again, just when it looked as if the steadily improving Sunrisers bowling attack was on the verge of miraculously defending just 128, the lowest total of the 2015 IPL so far.
But while Warner’s Sunrisers attempt to pick up the pieces, South African Skipper J.P. Duminy and his Dehli Daredevils ride into Vizag on Cloud Nine, after capturing their first victory of the year — and finally snapping a two-season 11-game losing skid — with a five-wicket win that went down to the next-to-last ball.
Delhi comes in with the league’s lowest batting average at just 23.44 per wicket lost. But Sunrisers have been only marginally better, at 23.45. To beat the Delhi side, Hyderabad will need something better out of Warner, who was run out for just 21 against Rajasthan, as well as from Shikhar Dhawan who was caught out for a mere 10.
So far, Warner has left South Africa’s top fast bowler, Dale Steyn, on the bench, in favor of New Zealand’s World Cup hero Trent Boult. But Warner may need to find a way to get both of those arms in the side, because with its anemic batting attack, Sunrisers will need all the bowling they can get.
