Right then, that is all we have from this game. The action continues on Tuesday, May 17th as Mumbai go up against Hyderabad. That game starts at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). As you know, our coverage starts well in advance. So do join us for the same. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Shardul Thakur is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his four crucial wickets. He says that he always likes to perform in crunch times and these last two games are important and he likes to perform in pressure situations. Tells that his two-wicket over in the Powerplay was important and after that spinners came into play. Mentions that there was dew after the 12th over and that was probably why he thinks that they did not bowl Kuldeep in the last over. Says that he is working hard on his batting and is looking to perform with the bat whenever he gets an opportunity.
Rishabh Pant, the skipper of Delhi, says they wanted to win two games in a row and it happened finally. Adds that the change of pace from Liam Livingstone,was good against Warner. and can't really fault Warner in that dismissal. Tells that the process was to take the game till the deep as the wicket was slow as well. Mentions that they will assess the wicket in the next games. On Kuldeep Yadav, he says the dew kicked in, that is why he didn't want to gve someone a massive over. On Shaw, he says it is 50-50 and he'll know about him in the next game.
Time for the Presentation...
Mitchell Marsh is down for a quick chat. He says that it is a great win and one can never judge a wicket until both teams bat. Tells that he thought that they are a little below par in the first innings but their spinners bowled well and credit should be given to bowlers. Mentions that he wanted to score as many runs as possible in the Powerplay before it starts turning and Sarfaraz Khan batted well and they lost some wickets in the middle overs but is happy to get a win. Tells that they are peaking at the right time and they have a great squad and it is all about getting momentum as they move forward.
Mayank Agarwal, the skipper of Punjab, says they didn't bat well between 5-10 overs and there they lost the game. Admits it was a chaseable score, the wicket was not as bad as seen but wickets felt regularly. Adds that two points are still crucial and a match to be won, they will try to play their best cricket there.
Time for some interviews!
In the game dominated by spinners, Thakur got four wickets and got crucial ones and that made the difference in the end. Punjab needed someone to play an anchor role like Marsh did in the first innings but they crumbled under pressure. However, all credit to Jitesh Sharma to take the game deep and Punjab have surely found a gem in this Vidarbha batter. Delhi move to the fourth spot now and things are getting quite interesting in this intense playoff race.
In the first half, it was Mitchell Marsh who held Delhi’s innings together with a mature knock of 63 as wickets kept falling at the other end. It was evident in the first innings itself that spinners will have a big say in this game as Livingstone and Rahul Chahar troubled Delhi batters and especially Livingstone who got three big wickets. Delhi managed to get 159 on the board and Punjab needed a good Powerplay as batting in the middle overs was always going to be tough. Punjab started brightly as Jonny Bairstow started from where he left off in the last game. However, Anrich Nortje got rid of him and after that, a double-wicket over from Shardul Thakur brought Punjab’s train off the route. The innings was derailed further as spinners wreak havoc and from 53-1, Punjab crumbled to 82-7. Delhi were looking all set for a big win but a tactical error from Pant to not bowl a spinner and some brilliant batting by Sharma took the game close. However, Shardul Thakur came back with another double-wicket over and ended Punjab’s hopes of a victory in this game.
Delhi win this crucial game and get those important 2 points to take a big step forward towards a playoff spot. However, they would feel that they could have won this game by a bigger margin once they restricted Punjab to 82-7. However, credit should be given to Punjab and especially Jitesh Sharma to take Punjab close here and that has meant that their net run rate has not been hurt as badly as it was looking around the 13th over mark. However, this loss will still hurt them and they now need a couple of results to go their way to make it to the playoffs.
