That ends Friday's adventure. Over to Super Saturday now, where Mumbai host Rajasthan at the Wankhede at 4 pm local (1030 GMT), followed by the Punjab-Bangalore clash in Mohali at 8 pm local (1430 GMT). Do join us then for the weekend bash. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
SHIKHAR DHAWAN HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS UNBEATEN 97. Admits that the 100 was on the back of his mind but a victory is more important and hence, he did not look to go big. Adds that he was happy to work it around and stay till the end. On the pitch, Shikhar says that the track here is very different than the one in Delhi and it is a lovely wicket which supports both, the bowler and the batsman. Further says that the wicket is Delhi is more challenging and you need to adapt quickly. Says that he is enjoying his game. Also says that after the fall of two quick wickets, they were looking to build a partnership and they did so. Says that Rishabh Pant is very well capable of hitting it out of the park and he too was hitting boundaries on regular basis, which made things easier.
Victorious Delhi captain, Shreyas Iyer, says it is an amazing feeling, winning 4 out of 7 games, which is very rare since the time he has been playing. Adds that it was difficult to select the team but then Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly sat down together and decided to leave Sandeep Lamichhane out for Paul and it turned out to be a good move. Mentions that Dhawan loves to bat on such tracks and credits the way he played, appreciating him for batting till the end. Ends by saying someone from the top order needed to take the reponsibility and Dhawan did it.
Rishabh Pant comes over for a chat now. Says he tries to keep his head clear and play on the merit of the ball. Mentions he wanted to stay there till the end and complete the game as quickly as possible. States pacing the innings is very important while chasing something above 180. Further adds he does not focus on what the bowler is thinking and concentrates more on his strength. Ends by saying they were looking to take it deep and take their team over the line.
Kolkata skipper, Dinesh Karthik, says they were 15 runs short. Admits they did not bat as well as they should have. Adds that he expected his bowlers to put up a better fight. States Lynn and Narine were missed as they are an integral part of the team, but praises Gill for doing a very good job. Mentions it is hard on Joe Denly to get a game after a long time and get dismissed on the very first ball but expects him to come back stronger. Ends by saying they will try and come back stronger in the next game.
Just three bowlers took wickets. Prasidh Krishna, Andre Russell and the last, by Nitish Rana. No wickets for Ferguson, Kuldeep, Chawla or Brathwaite. Their spin department is struggling while the pace department has not been at its best either. This win takes Delhi to 4th spot in the points table, while Kolkata stay on second. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
Not the greatest outing for Kolkata with the ball. The focus has been so much on Andre Russell that all the other factors have been ignored. Ian Bishop on air mentioned that the home side have taken the least number of wickets this season. What about their batting? Where has it fired? Even in this game, it was more of Andre Russell's blitz that took them close to 180. Shubman Gill played a lone innings at the top.
Focussing away from the individual landmark, let us now move to the team performance. Delhi entered the Eden with 1 win in 8 outings against Kolkata. Finally they have doubled their wins. Well orchestrated, with Shikhar Dhawan batting till the end, with good support from Rishabh Pant. Delhi might have felt that they were in trouble having lost 2 inside the Powerplay but with Gabbar around, they were always comfortable. The 105-run stand for the third wicket sealed the game for the visitors.
Wow. Did not think this would happen. Everyone was waiting for a Dhawan century. But poor guy has been stranded on 97. 97 - would you believe that? But kudos to the team. Chased down 179 with 7 balls to spare. 7th successive run chase in this tournament.

Piyush Chawla To Colin Ingram
SIX! INGRAM FINISHES IT OFF IN STYLE! No hundred for Dhawan. Ingram clears the front leg and then tonks the ball over the long on fence. All smiles though in the Delhi camp as THEY HAVE WON BY 7 WICKETS!

Piyush Chawla To Shikhar Dhawan
On the pads, this is worked around the corner for a run. Dhawan moves onto 97 and Delhi need 5.

Piyush Chawla To Colin Ingram
Now looks to go for the slog sweep but sees the line is not quite there for that shot. He sensibly hits it through covers for a single.

Piyush Chawla To Colin Ingram
FOUR! Edgy, that would do for Delhi! Runs needed in single digits now. This is slower and it is tossed up outside off. Ingram throws the kitchen sink at it but only manages an outside edge to the third man fence.

Piyush Chawla To Shikhar Dhawan
Needed a direct hit! The googly from Chawla, it pitches around off. Dhawan picks it and then guides it towards short third man. They go for a run. The fielder throws it to the keeper who fails to collect it.
Piyush Chawla to bowl. 2-0-22-0 so far.

Nitish Rana To Colin Ingram
A couple to finish! 12 in 12! Ingram dances down the track and hits it hard towards long off. The fielder there makes a good diving stop, can't stop two though. A good over though by Rana, he has given Kolkata some hope.
17.5

Nitish Rana To Shikhar Dhawan
Good running! Dhawan taps it to the right of the bowler and sets off for a single. They complete it.
Mind games... Dhawan lines up for a big hit but then Rana does not deliver at all.
17.4
1
Nitish Rana To Colin Ingram
A risky run but they complete it in the end! Ingram first looks to paddle but then seeing the line is outside off, he guides it towards point. The batsmen go for a single and complete it as the throw from the fielder is a week one.

Nitish Rana To Rishabh Pant OUT!
OUT! PANT HOLES OUT! He has thrown it away! This was just needless. This though has been his problem throughout this edition, plays an excellent innings but does not finish off the game for his team. He walks down the track and looks to go for another one-handed biggie. This time he does not time it and it goes straight into the hands of the fielder at long on. Kuldeep Yadav makes no mistake. 17 needed in 17. Delhi can't surely lose it from here right or can they? We will have to wait and watch.
Nitish Rana is back on! Also, Russell is seen walking off the field.

Andre Russell To Rishabh Pant
SIX! That is probably the blow which seals it for Delhi. The runs needed is below the balls to be bowled. The slower one and it has been picked. Pant lofts it over long on and it goes all the way. The 100-run stand is also up, they have taken Delhi to the brink of victory, they now need to take them to victory.

Prasidh Krishna To Shikhar Dhawan
Good delivery that! Bends his back on this one and bangs it short outside off. Dhawan looks to cut but misses as that one had extra bounce.
Pant is taking a long time to recover, it seems. So the umpires have called for the STRATEGIC BREAK. Delhi are cruising. But we will keep our lips sealed. And our fingers as well. We have seen this in the past that Delhi have cruised through, only to fumble towards the end. What's in store tonight?
Pant is down at the non-striker's end. He seems to be in pain. The physio is out.

So just the single over for Chawla.

Andre Russell To Shreyas Iyer OUT!
OUT! 50th Indian T20 League wicket for Russell. Iyer has been caught down the leg side! Excellent sportsmanship from the Delhi skipper as he has walked. A very soft, soft dismissal and Iyer will be very frustrated with himself. Russell though is up and running in his celebration. A nothing delivery this, down the leg side. Iyer looks to flick but gets a feather to Karthik who takes it and appeals. Before the umpire gives it out, Iyer is walking back. Russell gets his first and it is a big wicket. Game right in the balance now.

Well played in the end! This one jags back in from outside off. Iyer adjusts well and then guides it towards the off side for a quick run.

Lockie Ferguson To Shikhar Dhawan
FOUR! Short and that sits up to be hit! Dhawan is quickly onto the back foot and dismisses it through mid-wicket. 10 from Lockie's second as well. 124 needed in 90.

Lockie Ferguson To Shreyas Iyer
Soft leading edge! Good running in the end! Slower ball again on middle, Iyer looks to play it with a closed face of the bat. He is early to do so and the ball goes off the leading edge towards mid off for a quick run.

Lockie Ferguson To Shreyas Iyer
FOUR! Delightful from Iyer this time! Slower ball and it is very full in length. Shreyas waits for it and then strokes it down to the long on fence. 50 up for the visitors and it has come up in very quick time.

Lockie Ferguson To Shikhar Dhawan
The slower short ball to begin with! Dhawan defends it beside the pitch and sets off for a run. It is a race between the bowler and the non-striker. Ferguson tries to kick it onto the stumps but fails to do so.
Lockie Ferguson is back!

Andre Russell To Shikhar Dhawan
A short ball this time by Russell, Dhawan pulls it to fine leg for a single. 13 runs from the first over of Russell. An unfortunate one for Russell, he could have had a wicket to his name but instead turns out to be an expensive over.

Andre Russell To Shikhar Dhawan
DROPPED AND FOUR! A tough chance though. Russell lands this one just outside off and it is on a length. Dhawan pokes at it and the ball takes the outside edge. The ball flies through first slip. Rana at flying slip dives to his right, gets a hand to it but can't hang on. The ball races to the third man fence. Consecutive boundaries and both lucky.

FOUR! Misfield costs another boundary. A back of a length delivey on off, Dhawan slices it to backward point and fumble by Krishna gets Dhawan a four.
Captain Shreyas Iyer walks in at number 3, replacing Shaw. Andre Russell to bowl.

Prasidh Krishna To Prithvi Shaw OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! No doubt this time and Krishna has provided the much-needed breakthrough. The high-flying opening stand has been cut short. A very good ball this. Krishna pitches it on a length and around off, gets it to straighten just a touch. Shaw ends up playing inside the line and due to the late away movement, gets an outside edge. Karthik behind does really well to dive to his right and take it brilliantly. Add to it that his first movement was to his left. Kolkata now have a chance to pull things back a little. End of an action-packed over, 17 runs and a wicket.

SIX! Poor bowling again! Short and wide, Dhawan would hit that all day long. He cuts it uppishly and it carries all the way. Second maximum of the over.

Prasidh Krishna To Shikhar Dhawan
NOT OUT! There was not a lot of evidence to overturn the on-field call. A brave call in the end. Kolkata lose their only review very early. Krishna bowls this one on a length and outside off, this jags back in sharply. Dhawan tries to keep it out but the ball sneaks between pad and bat. Karthik appeals and it is a confident one. The umpire shakes his head. Kolkata take the review. Now Ultra Edge does detect something but from one angle it seems to be the glove and from the other it looks like the ball has passed the bat. After a lot of replays, the umpire decides to rule it in the favor of the batsman. Probably, the ball hit the pad.
Review time! Karthik feels he has got his man here. The umpire though feels different. Dinesh has taken a review for a caught behind.

FOUR! Krishna is not learning here! He continues bowling to Dhawan's strength. Short and outside off, Dhawan says thank you very much and he slaps it over point for a boundary. 10 from the two balls bowled.

SIX! Dealing in maximums are Delhi here. One to begin the third. It is short and outside off, Dhawan arches and then lofts it over the slip fielder for a biggie.

Lockie Ferguson To Prithvi Shaw
SIX! Top edge and it goes all the way! A maximum to end a very expensive first by Ferguson. He goes short and on the body of Shaw. Prithvi swivels and tries to pull but the ball flies off the top edge, over the keeper's head and over the fence. 14 from the over, not what Kolkata wanted after a tight first.

Lockie Ferguson To Prithvi Shaw
SIX! A flat one! What a shot! Ferguson is guilty of offering a lot of width outside off. Shaw is down on one knee as he lofts it over covers. It is right off the middle and it carries all the way. First of the innings.

Prasidh Krishna To Prithvi Shaw
Delhi are underway! Slightly short and on the body, Shaw works it through square leg. The fielder is in the deep and a single is taken.
We are back for the chase! The Delhi openers, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan walk out to the middle. The former scored a 99 in the previous fixture between the two. Something similar is what Delhi would love. Kolkata on the other hand, would like a few early wickets. Prasidh Krishna to start the proceedings for them. Here we go...
