It was New Zealand who took trans-Tasman bragging rights in the Indian Premier League as Delhi Daredevils sprung an upset over David Warner's Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Black Caps allrounder Corey Anderson delivered the match-winning blows in a vital six-wicket win for the Daredevils.

Opener Warner made a quickfire 30 from 21 balls after being sent in. Fellow Australian Moises Henriques (25) and Yuvraj Singh (70) were at the crease when Sunrisers' innings came to an end, posting a respectable 3-185.

Anderson whacked three sixes and two fours in his 24-ball 41 not out, trumping New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson in the beaten Sunrisers.

Williamson scored 24 at a run-a-ball before Delhi stormed to 4-189 off 19.1 overs, propelled by Anderson, whose team needed 77 off 50 balls when he arrived at the crease.

The win lifted the sixth-placed Daredevils to a third win from nine games and keeps them in semi-final contention with five matches to play.

Third-placed Hyderabad have won six of 11 games.

Henriques was the most expensive of the Sunrisers' bowlers, returning 0-36 from 2.1 overs.
