It is a hat-trick! Flashback Friday. King Kohli is the Man Of The Match in Bangalore's thrilling win. Saturday evening saw Precocious Steven Smith walk away with the Man Of The Match award after resisting a staunch Mumbai in Jaipur. And Saturday night saw Mr. Iyer complete the hat-trick. So three successive games have seen the skippers leading from the front. Will the trend continue? Sunday sees four such skippers again - Williamson's Hyderabad take on Karthik's Kolkata while Kohli is back on, this time to take on his mentor, MS Dhoni. The games start at 4 pm local (1030 GMT) and 8 pm local (1430 GMT) respectively, so do not forget to tune in on another double-header day. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious Delhi captain, Shreyas Iyer, has been named the MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that this comes as a really satisfying win after 3 losses at home. Stresses that it was not an easy wicket to chase and lauds Dhawan for digging in. Admits that this is not a track which would suit his batsmen as most of them play on the rise and want the ball to come on to the bat. Says that he took up the responsibility to bat deep and stay till the end. Praises Sandeep Lamichhane for stepping up a gear and says that Amit Mishra's experience is helping the Nepalese. Lauds Shikhar Dhawan's positive approach and wants all his top order batsmen to be courageous. Hopes that in the coming games, the rest of the top order takes up the responsibility of batting till the end.
Shikhar Dhawan is up for a chat as well. Smiles and says that it's important for them to win this game as they now get closer to qualify for the knockouts. Wants to get much better than today and keep improving. Tells that they wanted to utilize the first six overs as the wicket was on the slower side and hitting the softer ball would have been tougher. Mentions that he just focuses on the process and as an experienced player, he keeps talking to his boys in the middle and tries to make sure that they don't lose wickets under pressure.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin, says that 163 was just below par due to the kind of dew on the outfield. Feels that they lost too many wickets in the middle which hurt them. Adds that Mujeeb getting injured was a setback for them. Terms it unfortunate that they didn't have enough runs on the board. Admits that they failed to tighten the noose and kept leaking boundaries here and there. Praises Shreyas Iyer for his knock and cheekily comments that Iyer knew that his wicket could have led to another collapse. Lauds Harpreet Brar's efforts as well and considers him one for the future.
Have to feel for the Punjab bowlers. They struggled with the persistent dew and eventually ran out of steam. Mohammed Shami was the only bowler who was consistent and ended up with figures of 4-0-21-1. The rest simply could not adjust to the dew.
It was the Dhawan-Iyer show for a major part of the chase with the 92-run stand taking care of Punjab's bowling. With the dew around, the bowling was not that great and the duo took full toll. Shikhar continued his good return to form, with his third 30-plus score in the last 4 innings. But as has been seen in the past, the hosts fell on the slippery road of collapse, losing 4/40 in 32 balls before skipper Iyer shepherded them through. To be honest, he kept his cool during the choke but was denied much strike.
Almost making a habit of choking, are Delhi, aren't they? Another last-over finish. Didn't seem so when Delhi were 116/1 needing 48 under 7 overs. But Dhawan's wicket did set the cat free amongst the pigeons before caretaker Iyer took care that there was no brain fade.
Phew. The match ends. Saturday is done. Another nerve-wracking double header. In the end, Delhi, who should have won, ended up winning but not without nearly losing it.

Sam Curran To Shreyas Iyer
FOUR! DELHI WIN BY 5 WICKETS! Curran lets in a short of a length ball on middle, Shreyas gets on top of the bounce and hammer-pulls it to deep mid-wicket for the winning runs. A rare win at home for them this season.

Sam Curran To Shreyas Iyer
Back of a length delivery on off, Shreyas Iyer tries going over the leg side but it takes the outer half of his bat and flies over extra cover. Good for two runs. 3 needed off 2 balls.

Sam Curran To Sherfane Rutherford
Bang! Curran delivers a length ball on off, Rutherford hammers it over the bowler's head and Miller moves swiftly across to his left from long off to stop the ball. The striker, who was standing and admiring his shot, has to cross for a single.

Mohammed Shami To Axar Patel OUT!
OUT! Axar Patel is run out! Hang on, hang on, this evening surely is not going to end in a straightforward manner. We will get some more thrill. Good length ball on middle and leg, Axar glances it behind square leg and wants the second run. But while turning back he collides with Shami and as a result is very late in reaching to the other end. The throw comes nice and straight to Rahul who does the rest. Shami is gesturing that it was not intentional from him and the replays confirm the same. The bowler was walking in his line and never tried to get in Axar's way. Still Patel is furious as he returns.
Axar Patel walks in at number 6, replacing Ingram.

Mohammed Shami To Colin Ingram OUT!

Good stop by Rahul, saves a certain boundary with a dive to his left. Shami follows the batsman down the leg side, Iyer swings blindly and misses. Rahul makes a half-stop and they cross for a bye.
