Right. That ends proceedings from this game. We are into the endgame of the group stages in the Indian T20 League, 2021 and on Tuesday, 05th October 2021, we will see the clash between two teams who are aiming for that fourth playoff place - Mumbai will take on Rajasthan at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT), but, the build-up will begin earlier. We hope to have your company for that game. Until then, goodbye and take care!
AXAR PATEL IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! He says that when one bowls, the game plan remains the same but one needs to assess the pace of the pitch. He adds that the opponents were 10 runs short in the Powerplay which helped. Mentions that Ashwin gave him a couple of pointers in the field setting in order to make the batters hit square as the long boundaries were square of the wicket. Says that he is really happy and this game will boost their confidence going into the playoffs.
Rishabh Pant, the Delhi skipper, says that it is not a bad birthday present. Mentions that in the Powerplay, Chennai came hard at them and got away but then they came back stronger bowling good overs. Tells that it was a low total and is glad that they chased it down in the end. Adds that it's a big win for them as they can assure a top-two finish.
Shimron Hetmyer is in for a quick word! He says that he is paid to finish games and is happy that he was able to do that. On the dropped catch, he says he thought he was out but was lucky. Adds that the plan was to take it as deep as possible and target the 19th over. Mentions that it was easy for him as he had faced Bravo earlier as well and is happy that he could score a couple of boundaries off Bravo.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai skipper, says that they were looking to hit closer to 150. Mentions that they failed to accelerate after the 15th-16th over as the platform was nice and feels that it was a tough wicket. Tells that it was a two-paced wicket as some balls come onto you and some don’t. Mentions that the taller bowlers were getting movement from the pitch. Adds that it was a very good effort from the bowlers to take the game right till the end. Ends by saying that overall, he is very pleased with the effort from his bowlers.
Chennai did not start off well with the ball but they always know how to bounce back when things were going against them. When things got tough, they did well to take wickets at that point and push Delhi back. They were under the pump early on but took wickets regularly. The 15th over by Shardul Thakur felt like the game-changing one as he took 2 wickets, and also the valuable one of Dhawan, but in the end, they could not do enough to win the game. Ravindra Jadeja had a good outing as he bowled well and took 2 wickets. Thakur ended with figures of 4-0-13-2 as well, stepping up when his team needed him too. Josh Hazlewood and Moeen Ali were efficient too but if they had 15-20 more runs on the board, maybe the result could have been different.
Delhi got off to a good start as Prithvi Shaw was looking to attack but he did not last for long. He lost his wicket in the 3rd over and Dhawan and Iyer steadied things slightly before Iyer gifted his wicket away. Pant and debutant, Ripal Patel played handy knocks and stitched decent stands with Dhawan but did not hang around for long. With the players that Delhi had in their ranks, the fact that Dhawan was still out there, and the final cherry on top of the cake, that the total was not a big one, you would think Delhi would cross the line. But, from a position of 93/3, Delhi slipped to 99/6 and also lost Dhawan, and were under pressure. The onus fell on Shimron Hetmyer and Axar Patel and they did well to take the game to the final over but Patel fell. It did not make a difference as Rabada hit the winning runs and took his team past the finish line.
Well, there we have it! When the top 2 sides in the table clash, it is bound to be a close game, and boy, were we treated to a humdinger! The game went down right to the wire and it is Delhi who have emerged victorious as they have won by 3 wickets and move atop the summit as this victory sees them get to 20 points. Chennai came close to winning this but they just fell short.

Dwayne Bravo To Axar Patel OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! The game turns on it's head yet again! With just two needed off 4 balls, Axar Patel looks to play the expansive drive and end proceedings in style. One might question, was that really required? Full and wide, creamed straight to short cover. Moeen Ali takes a brilliant catch under pressure and Patel has to walk back. 2 needed off 3 balls now.

Dwayne Bravo To Axar Patel
Seam up from Bravo. Length and wide outside off. A swing and a miss from Axar Patel.

Dwayne Bravo To Shimron Hetmyer
TWO WIDES! Wild delivery from Dwayne Bravo, even he is feeling the pressure. The umpires are discussing whether it's a wide or a no ball as the ball has landed outside the pitch. A wide is signalled in the end. They scamper through for the single as the ball goes to Hazlewood who dives down at short third man.
Kagiso Rabada walks out into the middle.

Dwayne Bravo To Shimron Hetmyer
Slower and well outside off. Hetmeyer leans in and swats it through the cover region. They come back for the second with ease.
Looks like MS Dhoni is going to come up to the stumps. He calls for his helmet and gets is quickly. He does not want Shimron Hetmyer to venture out of his crease.

Josh Hazlewood To Shimron Hetmyer
In the air...safe! Back of a length, around off. Hetmeyer looks to go downtown but gets a top edge. The fielders from long on and long off converge but the ball lands safely around mid off. They race back for the second.
6 needed in 6 balls. Dwayne Bravo will bowl the final over. Can he hold his nerve and take Chennai past the finish line?

Josh Hazlewood To Shimron Hetmyer
SIX! BANG! Is that the game then? Josh Hazlewood continues to hit the length hard and this one is on the hips. Shimron Hetmyer makes room and dispatches it over the square leg fence for a biggie. 9 needed now off 8 balls.

Josh Hazlewood To Axar Patel
Banged into the pitch and Patel can't get the pull shot away. The fielder at short mid-wicket is sharp and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. If that had hit, Hetmeyer was a goner.

Dwayne Bravo To Axar Patel
Full and sliding onto leg stump. Patel looks to play a cross-bat shot but misses and gets hit on the pads. A huge appeal but turned down, maybe sliding down leg. The ball rolls towards backward point and Hetmeyer wants the single but they don't get it.

Dwayne Bravo To Shimron Hetmyer
A bit of cat and mouse going on between Bravo and Hetmeyer. Hetmeyer steps out of the crease and Bravo pulls back the length and bowls a slower one. Hetemyer works it towards mid on for a single.
Who will bowl the penultimate over? Josh Hazlewood, it is.

Dwayne Bravo To Shimron Hetmyer
DROPPED AND FOUR! Could that be the game? A low full toss, around off. Hetmeyer gets low and looks to clear long on. He gets it off the toe end of the bat and straight down the throat of the substitute fielder, Krishnappa Gowtham. He spills it and to make matters worse for Chennai, the ball goes into the fence.
