Right then, done and dusted with Match 38.  Match 39 is between Bangalore and Kolkata. Abu Dhabi hosts one of the oldest rivalries in the league, between Kohli's men and Morgan's men. Bangalore are heavily dependent on de Villiers. The last time we had a visual treat of him launching a ferocious storm at Sharjah against Kolkata. What's in this time? Join us at 1800 Local (1400 GMT) on Wednesday, 21st October 2020 to find out. Until then, good night from our side.
Shikhar Dhawan, the first man ever to get back-to-back hundreds in the league is the MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that he was alone in the middle today, otherwise normally somebody would be by his side in the middle while batting. States that he feels he batted well and wants to carry the confidence. Wants to be fresh for each match and enter the same with a positive mindset. Says that the squad will have a discussion now to see where they went wrong. Adds that there have been a lot of learnings. Dhawan finishes off by saying that this loss will not put the side down and that they will analyze the loss and comeback stronger.
KL Rahul, the VICTORIOUS PUNJAB SKIPPER, says jokingly that his heart-rate keeps reaching newer levels each game. States that one of the players in the top 4 in the batting needs to be there till the end to see the side through. States that Shami has been coming in from a good deal of confidence from the last game - the Super Over one against Mumbai, where he defended 4 runs there. Adds that Shami is an experienced player and that he has played for Punjab in 3 seasons now. Says that one always expects their batters and bowlers to do well. Rahul says that it feels good to beat the top 3 sides in this season. Says that this will bring in a lot of confidence for the side as they will now feel that they can beat anyone now. Adds that after Sunday, he did not speak a lot. States that it was an entertaining game, for both the players and the fans. In the end, those 2 points matter a lot. Performances like that keeps a side motivated and keeps nudging them to do more.
Nicholas Pooran is in for a little chat now! He tells that it was a wonderful game. Says that the talk was to be consistent throughout and they did that in this game. Adds that he is really happy that this game didn't go to the last over. On his batting, Pooran says that he is working really hard and is hitting the ball well too. Says that he was disappointed when he got out as he wanted to finish off the game. Tells that he is a natural striker of the ball and says that it is very simple for him. If it is in the zone, he will go for the big shots.
Delhi skipper, Shreyas Iyer, is caught for a chat! He starts by saying they were around 10 runs short with the bat. Feels they have got quite a few learnings from the game. Adds Tushar Deshpande gave a few runs away but tells that he will learn from it. Says that Dhawan read the wicket really well and managed to acclimatize really well. On the loss, he says that he is happy that the loss has come at this point of time but credits the team for fighting till the end. Ends by saying that the boys will be charged up for the next game.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Delhi opted to bat first. Dhawan was the lone man holding his end while his partners kept falling at regular intervals. He became the first player to score back-to-back hundreds in the league and took his side to 164/5. In the end, it was 10-15 runs short as Punjab, despite certain hiccups, managed to close it with an over to spare. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.
But then, he later restrained himself on the quick runs and started the blitzkrieg, the big-hitting. So flawless he was and was ably assisted by Maxwell at the other end, the latter coming to the party at the most-needed time for Punjab. Pooran got to his second half ton in the league and by the time he departed, he put Punjab on a solid footing to win from there. Maxwell and Hooda took it more closer before the former fell. Tide turning? Looked so. Looked like it might be another last-over thriller before Neesham nailed a biggie to seal the deal in Punjab's favour.
But today, Gayle seemed to be in a hurry. And he took a particular favour to Tushar Deshpande, in the latter's first over. He smacked him all across the park and signalled his intentions right away. Punjab were cruising at 52/2 in the 6th over before 2 wickets fell in quick succession. First Gayle and then Agarwal. And that put pressure back on Punjab. Another game that was in their hands slowly starting to slip away? Looked so. But Pooran decided to take charge. He was responsible for Agarwal's run out and almost ran out Maxwell too.
Punjab did not get off to a good start in the chase though. Their openers have normally been outstanding this season but not tonight. Skipper Rahul fell for just 15 in the 3rd over. A rarity, given the phenomenal standard he has been in this edition. Out walked the Universe Boss then. Normally Chris Gayle takes his time to settle down and then go for the hitting.
A great finish, 2 more points for Punjab and thankfully for them, it is not a last-over finish. 3 wins on the trot for them against big teams - Bangalore, Mumbai and now Delhi. Truly the giant-slayers. Makes the league more interesting now.

DROPPED! Stoinis puts down a simple chance! Hooda wanted to finish it off in style and he went after the fuller ball. Ends up getting a top edge. The ball balloons high in the air towards covers. Stoinis runs behind a touch and tries to take the catch but it bursts through his hands.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Deepak Hooda
What happened there? That was a chance but a very tough one. It is the loppy tossed up ball, it dips in nicely. Hooda runs down and tries to work it on the leg side but misses. The ball shoots up after going past and Pant fails to collect. A leg bye taken. Ashwin has been outstanding today although he would have fancied more than Gayle to have put his side in a safer position in the match. He however finishes with impressive figures of 4-0-27-1.
