Match Ended   
228/4 (20.0/20)
210/8 (20.0/20)
Delhi Capitals beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs
So, that is it from the first double-header of this edition! The afternoon game was a one-sided affair but the evening one was a slobber knocker of a game. Action continues on Sunday and guess what? We have two games lined up again. First it is Mumbai taking on Hyderabad followed by Chennai facing Punjab. Do join us for all the action. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi skipper, is named Player of the Match. He starts by saying that it is really difficult to defend on this ground. Adds that he is surprised to know that in the last 3 games, over 1,000 runs have been scored on this ground. Tells that he always wanted to take some time before going after the bowlers. Adds he just wanted to hit one ball at a time. Tells that he isn't a gifted player but he puts in a lot of effort. Says that he is really happy that all the players stepped up and did their job well. Tells that he was a bit worried when Mishra got injured. Mentions that he was really confident towards the end and knew they will defend it. But adds that T20 is a funny game and anything can happen. Ends up saying that they have got a good platform now and they just need to get better game after game.
Anrich Nortje is caught for a quick chat! Says that they wanted to just use the conditions well. Feels it got a bit tough towards the end but is happy that they have ended on the right side. Tells that he is really enjoying bowling with Rabada. Ends by saying that they have been working hard on bowling the yorkers and the slower ones as well.
Dinesh Karthik, the Kolkata skipper, says that he is proud of the way the batters gave it a try. Feels they lost a couple of quick wickets at the start and that pushed them back. Says that a couple of more hits and they would've won the game. Adds that he can't really blame the bowlers as this was a tough wicket for them to bowl. On Russell coming up the order, Karthik says that they wanted to give him enough time to make an impact but that didn't happen here. On Narine opening the batting, the Kolkata skipper says that he is a very dangerous batsman once he gets going but adds that they might discuss the same with the coaching staff.
Earlier in the day, after being inserted, Delhi scored a mammoth 228 courtesy a breeezy knock from Shaw at the start and a brilliant one from Iyer towards the end. Delhi were well in control of the game before Morgan and Tripathi joined association but an outstanding stand between the two did change the tide towards Kolkata. It was Delhi who held their nerve though and came out on top. Stay tuned for the presentation.
Not a lot you can write about the bowlers again! This ground is actually a graveyard for them. There still were three bowlers who were outstanding. Amit Mishra, Nortje and Patel who had figures to look back at. Also, Patel and Nortje picked crucial wickets at crucial time and they could really be proud about how they fared.
Earlier on in the innings, Kolkata were going about their chase quite nicely. Rana and Gill both put up a good stand to give the hitters coming in a decent foundation. However, three wickets in quick succession put Kolkata on the back foot completely. With around 90 needed in the last 5 overs, they needed something special and both Morgan and Tripathi did deliver. They were striking at will and had got Iyer very worried. It though was a matter of just the one good over and Delhi got it in the form of the 19th over. Kolkata probably got their batting order wrong. They should have got in Karthik and Morgan above Russell and the result probably could have been different. That though was not to be but they could still be proud of the fight they showed after being down and out.
What a game! A run-fest, exactly what we expected in Sharjah. In the end, there has to be just the one winner and it is Delhi who have come out on top but trust me, they would have had their heart in their mouth when Morgan and Tripathi were out there. The two added 78 in no time and at one point, they were slight favorites when they needed 31 in the last 2 but a tremendous over from Nortje where he got Morgan and just gave away 5 runs won the game for Delhi. Yes, it is Stoinis who defended 26 in the final over but it is the Nortje's over which actually won them the game.

NO BALL! It is a no ball and Morgan will stay. A high full toss outside off, Morgan pushes it towards the backward point fielder. The fielder does well to take a catch to his right. But no celebration as they think that it might be a no ball. The umpires get together. Replays roll in. And just one look and it is good enough to call it a no ball. Free Hit coming up.
Is that a no ball? Looked to be over the waist height. Yes!

DRINKS! The game is well under control of Delhi. They just have to keep it simple and the game will be in the pocket soon. Kolkata needs a few massive overs. Who will provide that? Not too sure as they have lost Dre Russ already. Maybe Morgan. He is the only hope. Here's Nortje with the ball. Was superb in his first spell.

No hat-trick but that is a top delivery! It is a dipping slower ball. A full toss. Cummins looks to put bat to ball but it goes off the outer half towards point for one. An action-packed over by Harshal comes to an end.
Pat Cummins walks out to face the hat-trick ball.

Harshal Patel To Dinesh Karthik OUT!
OUT! That is another superb catch! Two in two for Patel and is this the over which wins the game for Delhi? Well, they are right on top now. A shorter one and on middle, Karthik looks to pull but is hurried into the stroke. It hits the splice and lobs towards mid off. Shikhar Dhawan takes a brilliant catch diving forward. Patel is on a hat-trick. Probably now the onus of chasing this total down falls on Morgan.
Eoin Morgan is the new man in.

Harshal Patel To Nitish Rana OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Patel gets his revenge and Kolkata are in huge trouble here! The well-set Rana is out of here. Having got his eye in, he needed to go on, especially now. It is a slower short ball outside off. There is tennis ball like bounce on this one. Rana looks to pull but fails to get on top of the bounce. He hits it high up in the air towards deep square leg where Patel takes it. 112 needed in 44.

DRINKS! A timely wicket for Delhi. Gill and Rana were looking solid out there but Mishra has got rid of one of them. Kolkata will need another good partnership. Rana is still out there and he will hope to get another able partner who stays with him out in the middle. If that can get another good stand, we could be in for another cracking finish. Andre Russell has been promoted up the order here.

He settles under the ball and takes the catch.

Amit Mishra To Nitish Rana
Single to end the over! Just 2 from it. A dropped catch as well but a superb over from Mishra. Shortish and just outside off, too close to cut. Rana tries and ends up mistiming it towards point. They go for a run.

Another dot! This was a poor ball and Rana will feel he missed out a chance. Short and wide outside off, Rana cuts but finds the point fielder.
The physio is out! Mishra is getting his fingers sprayed.

Amit Mishra To Nitish Rana
Put down! Mishra almost had it. Full and around off, Rana looks to drive but ends up getting a leading edge back to the bowler. Mishra dives to his right and tries to catch but the ball pops out of his hand. This can be really costly for Delhi.

Had Rabada hit, Gill would have been a goner! This is on off, it is pushed towards mid off and the batters take off. Rabada has a shy at the bowler's end but misses by a long way.

Anrich Nortje To Sunil Narine OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! After bowling a short ball, Nortje goes for the fuller one. Narine though is expecting another short ball and hence he is staying back. Narine tries to adjust and slam it on the off side but misses. The ball hits the stumps behind. Nortje is pumped.

Anrich Nortje To Sunil Narine
FOUR BYES! That took off. Hard to blame Pant for the miss. Short and on middle, Narine looks to pull but misses. It goes behind and over leaping Pant for a boundary.
Who will bowl from the other end? It is Anrich Nortje from the other end.
