That's all from this game then! Two super games! Both went to the final over and both ended with a six! However, the action in the Indian T20 League is not stopping. Another double-header day is on its way. On Sunday, 18th October 2020, Hyderabad will meet Kolkata in Abu Dhabi while in the second encounter, Mumbai will take on Punjab in Dubai. The first game will begin at 1530 IST while the second match will start at 1930 IST. However, we will be up and ready with the build-up pretty early for you all. Join us for those games. Until then, it is goodbye from our side.
Shikhar Dhawan, MAN OF THE MATCH for his superb unbeaten ton, maiden one in the League, states that it feels very special, it is a very special moment. He feels very happy. Adds that he wanted to continue the same form from the previous games, entering this game. Says that he keeps a positive mindset and looks to score more runs. Adds that he has improved and plays with courage, without a fear of getting out. Dhawan states that fitness is very important. Adds that due to corona, it helped him give some space to work on himself mentally and physically.
Shreyas Iyer, the VICTORIOUS DELHI SKIPPER, says that he was lost for words. Adds that it was amazing to see how Axar struck towards the end even though Dhawan was there in the middle. Overall, a terrific win, says Iyer. Lauds Axar Patel as an unsung hero and says that he is privy to Patel's meticulous preparation before any match. States that the team gels well. That has been the highlight of this edition, says Iyer. States that Dhawan's knock gives him belief that there is someone to steer the side till the end.
Marcus Stoinis is up for a chat. He says that it got tight towards the end. Says that the plan was to attack the ball from his area but adds he is disappointed as he got out. On one of his mishits going over the fence, Stoinis says that his bat is a good one and he also swings really hard and terms it a good combination. Feels that they are winning the games and hence one can say it is easy but feels nothing is easy. Tells that Axar had not got many opportunities to bat but he delivered here and adds he is bowling well too.
MS Dhoni, Chennai's skipper, says that the option to give the last over was only between Curran and Jadeja, he decided to give it to the latter. States that there was just enough dew, not a lot. Dhoni says that Curran's last over, the way he bowled, he needs to be convinced of how he can bowl yorkers. States that the coaching staff focus a lot on nailing the yorkers right during the practice sessions. And the way Curran bowled towards the end, it should boost his confidence on that note, Dhoni states.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Dhoni opted to bat first. They started off on a mixed note but some good striking in the middle and exceptional ones towards the end, courtesy Jadeja, saw them post 179. It was a very good total but fumbles in the field and some poor bowling in the middle and the death overs meant that Delhi coasted home, capitalizing on those errors. What a win for Iyer's men. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.
It was a really tough day in the office for the Chennai bowlers. They need to go back to the drawing board and revisit where they went wrong after having the match in their clutches. Their fielding too was unimpressive. They dropped Dhawan 4 times and he made them pay badly for that. Coming to the bowlers, Chahar was impressive, 2/18 from his 4 overs, starting off with a wicket maiden. Curran, Thakur and Bravo managed a wicket each but the former two were on the expensive side, along with Karn Sharma. Bravo bowled well but an injury forced him out of play towards the end and that meant Dhoni could not avail his services towards the end, especially for the crucial last over. That could have changed things quite a bit, in Chennai's favour, probably, had he been available.
But Stoinis perished after a cameo of 24. The game swung towards Chennai's favour then, one would reckon, but Dhawan was still out in the middle. Carey walked in after Stoinis' dismissal but he had a minimal impact, departing for just 4 in the penultimate over. In walked Axar Patel, Dhawan got to his maiden League ton later on. A fantastic knock from him. 17 needed off the last over. Clean striking from Patel sees Delhi past the finish line.
Delhi started off on a not-so-good note. They lost Shaw early, in just the second ball of the chase. Rahane walked in later, he looked good, but departed after just making 8. After that, Dhawan and his skipper stitched a crucial innings together. Dhawan got to his third half-ton on the trot in this edition. Iyer was not at his usual blistering best, probably still recovering from the injury. It was a good 68-run partnership between these two before Iyer was dismissed. Then walked Stoinis, he and Dhawan were taking the Chennai bowlers to the cleaners.
What a finish to the game! What a fabulous chase it was, especially in the end. A cracking way to finish. Delhi, their march continues. Axar Patel, take a bow. Delhi move back to the top of the table with 14 points.
Ravindra Jadeja To Axar Patel
SIX! WOW! Out of here! What a way to end the game! The last ball is given a bit of air by Jadeja, Axar reaches out and launches it over long on for a huge six. What a win! DELHI WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
Ravindra Jadeja To Axar Patel
Two now and scores are level! Shortish and outside off, Axar swipes it through mid-wicket and scampers back for a couple.
Ravindra Jadeja To Axar Patel
SIX! Take that! Pressure? What pressure? Axar says I don't care! Short and outside off, he reaches out and slams it over wide long off for a biggie. Just 3 needed now.
Ravindra Jadeja To Axar Patel
SIX! BANG! Axar Patel connects one and sends it over the fence. Jadeja bowls it short and around off, Axar goes back and pumps it over mid-wicket. One more six and Delhi will be very close.
Ravindra Jadeja To Shikhar Dhawan
Flatter and around off, Dhawan looks to slog it on the leg side but the ball takes the inner half and goes to fine leg. Just a run. 15 needed.
Ravindra Jadeja To Shikhar Dhawan
WIDE! Harsh call! Flatter and outside off, Dhawan looks to force it on the off side but misses. Wided by the umpire. Jadeja is not pleased.
Ravindra Jadeja to bowl the final over. Interesting call from the Chennai skipper. Can he defend 16 in this over?

S. Curran
Sam Curran To Shikhar Dhawan
100 for Shikhar Dhawan! Full ball on off, Dhawan lofts it over mid off for a single. He will now know the job is not done. This century will not mean much if the side doesn't end up winning the game. 17 needed from the final over.
Sam Curran To Shikhar Dhawan
NOT OUT! Flat line when the ball passes the bat! Dhawan stays. Good use of the review. Full and wide outside off again, Dhawan moves to the off side and tries to sweep again. He misses this time and the ball goes behind. Dhoni takes the catch and appeals. The finger goes up. Dhawan reviews straightaway.
Dhawan opts for a review. He was given out caught behind by the on-field umpire. Ultra Edge is in, what does it say? Flat line as the ball passes the bat....NOT OUT. Decision reversed!
Sam Curran To Axar Patel
They will get only a run. Another excellent wide yorker. Axar can only dig it through off side for single.
Sam Curran To Shikhar Dhawan
A single! Brilliant bowling from Curran. Nails the wide yorker. Dhawan does well to force it to sweeper cover for a run. 19 in 9. Delhi need a boundary.
Sam Curran To Shikhar Dhawan
WIDE! Fires this one way outside off. Dhawan lets it be. Wided.
Sam Curran To Shikhar Dhawan
DOT! Nearly chopped on! Very full and wide outside off, Dhawan looks to reach out and drive but gets an inside edge. The ball goes past his stumps to the keeper.
Who will walk out to bat now? Axar Patel it is. 2 left-handers in the crease again.
Sam Curran To Alex Carey OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Carey departs! Curran with the wicket. A low full toss around off, Carey just flicks it, doesn't do it with a lot of power. He just kind of checks his shot. The ball goes to the left side of the long on fielder. Faf is the man there. He hardly drops. He moves to his left and takes a tumbling catch. 21 needed in 11 balls.
Sam Curran will bowl the pressure over. Pressure for both Chennai and Delhi. Carey needs to give the strike to Dhawan and allow him to finish in elan. Dot balls at this stage will not bode well for Delhi. They need to be wary of that.

S. Thakur
Shardul Thakur To Shikhar Dhawan
FOUR! Dhawan ends it in style for Delhi. Low full toss outside off, Dhawan moves to the off side and sweeps it over square leg for a boundary. This is a much-needed boundary. Dhawan's highest total in the Indian T20 League. Just 2 away from his maiden ton. 21 needed in 12 balls.
Shardul Thakur To Alex Carey
Only a run! Length and around off, Carey can only force it down to long off for a run. Can Thakur end it well?
Shardul Thakur To Shikhar Dhawan
Just a single! Full toss outside off, Dhawan strokes it towards sweeper cover for one. Good over so far.
