Match Ended   
119/1 (10.3/20)
115 (20.0/20)
Delhi Capitals beat Punjab Kings by 9 wickets
Right then. That’s it from this one-sided affair. The action from the Indian T20 League continues on 21st April, where Mumbai will take on Chennai. The first ball will be bowled at 7:30 pm IST (2:00 pm GMT). But as you all know, you can join us in advance for the build-up. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Kuldeep Yadav is the Player of the Match, he says he wants to share this award with Axar Patel as he was brilliant tonight. Adds that Pant played a key role in the second wicket as he asked him to come around the wicket. Tells that he is confident and mentally clear in this season and is focusing on himself rather than what the batter is thinking. Mentions that he does not watch videos much as he just focuses on his rhythm now. Adds that he is really enjoying his bowling after quite some time, he gives credit to Rishabh who backs him as well.
Rishabh Pant, the skipper of Delhi, says there was too much confusion in their camp because in the morning they got to know there was another case of Covid, but they wanted to focus on their cricket today. Mentions that he likes to leave Warner and Shaw alone since they know their role very well. Sates that results are not in their control, but they can keep improving. Adds that when Lalit bowled in the Powerplay, he thought spinners could come into play throughout the game.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
David Warner is down for a chat. He says the bowlers did a good job and they tried and chased the low total quickly as it sometimes becomes scratchy. They just needed to get out of the room and play cricket. Tells that he just sticks to the basics, form is temporary, class is permanent. Jokes that his kids ask him, why aren't you scoring a century as 60 these days is normal.
Mayank Agarwal, the skipper of Punjab, says it was a day to forget for them and will move on rather than dig in this game. Adds that they were losing too many wickets early on but if you look in the game, there are too many negatives and they need to look forward. Tells that he could have brought spinners early on but he didn't think so.
David Warner and Prithvi Shaw came out to bat with some intent and started firing from the word go and they scored 81 runs within the Powerplay. Shaw did perish soon after the Powerplay, but Warner notched up his half-century and guided Delhi home with ease. Their best performance of the season so far, outstanding with the ball and phenomenal with the bat as well. This victory will surely help their net run-rate as well.
It was always going to be a tough task to defend just 116 runs, but Punjab bowlers were taken to the cleaners right from the beginning of the chase. Rahul Chahar did grab the wicket of Shaw, but the damage had already been done by then. Cannot really blame the bowlers here, they did not have much to defend. Overall, a disappointing performance from Punjab, they were well below their best.
It's been a dominating performance from Rishabh Pant and his men! This game was in doubt earlier due to Covid, but Delhi would be mighty pleased with the show they have put on here after all the problems in their camp. With this victory, they have grabbed a total of 6 points and have moved to the 6th spot in the points table. While Punjab have now suffered back-to-back defeats.

Punjab would have only had a chance if they had grabbed early wickets, but they will nothing but a miracle to win here. Also, Rahul Chahar comes into the attack.
