Till then, goodbye and take care!
Prithvi Shaw is named Player of the Match for his superb knock. He says that he was not thinking anything, to be honest, and was waiting for the loose ball and he knew where Mavi was going to bowl as he has played with him before. Adds that he was prepared and he knew that one ball would come to the body but Mavi did not bowl that. Goes onto say that he felt that it was stopping a bit and he did not want to take chances of hitting on the bigger side.  Adds that he does not think about the target as he knows that if he is there, he will continue getting the runs. Tells that if he gets a chance, he will speak to Virender Sehwag. Credits his father for supporting him after he was dropped after the Australian tour and adds that his dad told him to focus on his game and he worked hard after that. Tells that there will be ups and downs in the career but he is not thinking about them.
Rishabh Pant, the Delhi skipper, starts by saying that Shaw is a talented player and if you give him confidence, players like him can do wonders. Tells that they were trying to increase the run rate and he told Shaw to not play anything fancy. Adds that they were thinking about the net run rate because the game was done by 12th or 13th over. Says that Lalit is an all-rounder and he has done well. Says they just tell the youngsters to enjoy the game. Adds that he is enjoying the captaincy and smiles and says that if they keep winning, it will be better.
Shikhar Dhawan is caught for a chat. He is now the Orange Cap holder as well. He says Prithvi was playing well and it was fun to watch. Tells they were getting runs easily so he did not take risks. Adds if he was younger, he might have tried to match Shaw's performance but now he is experienced and plays his role. Dhawan says he has made conscious efforts to take risks and says he has tried to learn, to be smart and he knows when to take those risks. Dhawan adds that he enjoys playing under Ponting's coaching and tells the team is like a family and Ponting makes sure to take care of everyone including the net bowlers.
Eoin Morgan, the Kolkata skipper, says they are very disappointed and admits they were slow off the blocks and did not bat well. Tells that when a player like Shaw gets going it is difficult to stop. Adds his innings showed how far off the mark they were on this pitch. Morgan says they have struggled to combine all three departments and win the game. Admits that they were poor in all facets of the game today. Tells Mavi bowled 4 on the trot in the last game and they wanted to build on his confidence but did not happen. Adds that they need to be honest in the dressing room and it is important as otherwise, it would be masking over the issues. Morgan says they have talent but tells talent only gets you so far and one needs to perform.
Stay tuned for the presentation!
Delhi bowled well most of the innings. Lalit and Axar were superb in their spells and got two apiece. Stoinis bowled one over and managed to get a scalp. Avesh was good in his 4 overs too. Rabada and Ishant failed to get their names in the wickets column and leaked a few runs but Shaw made the mockery of the total while chasing to thump Kolkata.
Earlier in the game, on the back of Russell's blitz, Kolkata managed to cross 150. They didn't start well. In the middle overs, Gill played a handy inning but he needed to play a few big shots. When he tried, he perished. A mini-collapse happened as Morgan and Narine fell in the same over, with both failing to open their account. However, Russell smashed a few biggies to help the team get to a decent score on the board.
You got to feel for the opposition bowlers. Shaw just never let them get in the rhythm. He went after the bowlers from the word go and didn't let them settle. Mavi went for 25 in his first over. The others too got the hammering. Cummins was the only one who managed to get in the wickets column as he took 3 but they all came too little too late for his side.
Chasing the total, Shaw started with a bang. He smashed 6 boundaries in the first over itself and set the tone. The shoulders of the opposition players went down from that very moment and they never recovered as Shaw continued to take the bowlers apart. He reached to his half ton in 18 balls and just kept going. Dhawan partnered him well and apart from playing a few classy drives, was happy to get Shaw on strike. And once Shaw got the strike, the destination for the ball was either boundary or six. Dhawan fell and Shaw too failed to close the game. Pant played a couple of big shots before getting dismissed. Eventually, Stoinis hit the winning runs to bag two points for the team.
Sensational run chase from Delhi and they are back on the winning track. The target wasn't a big one but the way Shaw started, it never looked as if Kolkata were ever in the game. Cummins did get 3 wickets but they came very late. And in the end, the knock from Shaw just blew them away. A scintillating performance from Delhi.

OUT! CAUGHT! Pant looks to finish it with a bang and hurry but departs! Something to smile about for Mavi who has had a bad game.  Fullish around off, Pant looks to go downtown against Cummins. He does not time it well and hits it straight down the throat of long on. Mavi there stays inside the advertising cushion and takes the catch. Cummins gets his third!

Pat Cummins To Rishabh Pant
NOT OUT! The ball has missed the bat and clipped the shoulder on its way to the keeper. Cummins knew it but it was a hopeful review from Morgan. Slowish bumper from Cummins! Rishabh looks to play but is surprised by the bounce on it. It kisses his shoulder and goes to the keeper. The Kolkata players appeal but the umpire is unmoved. Cummins turns his back but Morgan reviews it. Replays find that it misses the bat and clipped the shoulder.
Who is in next? It is Marcus Stoinis.

Pat Cummins To Prithvi Shaw OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Cummins has something to smile about. End of a fabulous knock from Shaw. He has played a ripper and we all know he deserves the Man of the Match award for this. He was looking to finish this game quickly so that his team could boost their run rate but in looking to do so, he has perished.  Short ball around off, Shaw looks to slam it over on the off side. He lost his shape and control as he looks to hit it. He slices it in the air. Rana keeps his eyes on the ball and dives to take a good catch.

Time-Out! Just mere formalities remain in this game as Delhi are certain to get 2 points and put out a statement to the rest of the sides with an emphatic win. Shaw is approaching a ton and will look to get his maiden century in this league. Dhawan is extending his run at the top of the run-scorers chart this season and is just 10 away from yet another half-century. Kolkata will look to get at least a wicket to have something to smile about.

Pat Cummins To Prithvi Shaw
FIFTY FOR SHAW! What an innings this has been! What a turnaround in performance this has been from the young man. Dropped from the national side after a poor outing in Australia but he has gone back to the domestic circuit, toiled hard, regained his form, and now he is taking this league by storm. On the pads, Shaw flicks it to the leg side and gets a single to bring up a fantastic fifty.
Time-Out! Delhi are steamrolling this chase with Shaw tormenting Kolkata bowlers. Dhawan too is slowly joining the party. The body language of the Kolkata players already looks like a side that has thrown in the towel.  They need to find a way to make a way back in this game and if they are to change the result of this game, they need something magical.

Prasidh Krishna To Shikhar Dhawan
FOUR! Dhawan wants to join the act now as he greets Krishna with a lovely cover drive. Full and wide to begin from Prashid. Dhawan needs no invitation as he gets down on his back knee and nails the drive through the covers. Too easy for him.
Will Morgan go with Mavi again? No! It is going to be Prasidh Krishna!

Flat and around off, Dhawan tucks it to mid-wicket and gets off strike. Looks like he too wants to see Shaw from the other end.
Who will bowl from the other end? It is Varun Chakaravarthy.

Shivam Mavi To Prithvi Shaw
FOUR! It is raining boundaries here from the bat of Shaw. He is bored of hitting it through covers so now he has gone through point. Good length ball outside off, Shaw slaps it through point for a boundary. He his 6 boundaries off Southee a couple of seasons back, can he do it again?

WIDE! Wild start from Mavi! Misses his line completely and bowls one well down the leg side. Marvelous effort from DK as he dives to his left and saves it from being FIVE WIDES.
