Delhi Capitals moved a step closer to the Indian Premier League final as they claimed a two-wicket win in their play-off against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Sunrisers opener Martin Guptill struck four sixes to ensure a confident start, but West Indies' Keemo Paul took 3-32 to restrict the hosts to 162-8.

Prithvi Shaw made 56 in reply but it was a nervy finish, with Delhi securing victory with one ball remaining.

Delhi will play Chennai Super Kings on Friday in the final play-off.

The winner of that match will meet Mumbai Indians in Sunday's final.

Rishabh Pant struck 49 from 21 balls as Delhi advanced on their target, but he fell with five runs needed to win.

Amit Mishra was given out in the final over for obstructing the field, but Paul hit four from the penultimate delivery to secure victory.
