That ends a fantastic run chase. Delhi go on top of the table courtesy this victory. Yet another team wins going after the runs. Yes, yes, yes... there was a team which lost on Sunday night trying to chase but the mantra in this edition has been basically batting second. That is primarily because of the dew factor. Having said that, Tuesday's match is an interesting one - Chennai hosting Hyderabad at Chepauk. Dew will be on offer but the surface is tricky to bat. What will the captain winning the toss decide? Join us at 8 pm local (1430 GMT) on April 23, 2019 for all the action. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
RISHABH PANT HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS UNBEATEN 78 FROM 36. Pant says that he is feeling lovely, having been able to take his team to victory. Admits that he is disappointed that he was not picked in India's World Cup squad but eventually turned to focus on doing the basics. Stresses that everyone in the team knows their role and credits the support staff for their work.
Victorious Delhi captain, Shreyas Iyer, marvels at the way Delhi have performed away from home. Says that they seem to get better wickets on the road. Admits that it is not good to be giving reasons for not understanding one's own home surface but stresses that is the way the team is playing at the moment and there is plenty of positivity within. On Rajasthan's score, Iyer says that he was expecting around 200 seeing Rahane bat and praises his bowlers for restricting them under 200. On Delhi's plan for the run chase, Shreyas says that one of the top four had to bat deep and tonight, Pant did that. Praises Shaw for hanging in there as well.
Shikhar Dhawan is now up for a chat. Says he is enjoying his game and is quite relaxed after the win. Mentions he has changed his eating style, becoming vegetarian and it is going good for him. States his approach changed from the game against Bangalore as he knows he needs to be a lot more aggressive. Tells earlier on they were losing wickets early and hence, he needed to be there. Now, he has decided to go after the bowlers straightaway and is enjoying doing that.
Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith, says they did not finish as well as they could have with the bat. Credits the way Rabada, Morris and Ishant bowled. Says the wicket they played on is probably the best one they have played on here. Appreciates the way Delhi began their chase and acknowledges the effort from Pant. Steven also states that the dew made him change tactics as he had to bowl Gopal in the Powerplay. Mentions it is not easy to bowl in the dew, the wicket did not change a lot but it was difficult for his bowlers. He ends by saying they chose the option of saving Archer towards the end and he bowled well but giving him a few overs upfront could have also worked.
Earlier in the evening, a century by Ajinkya Rahane took Rajasthan to 191, which would have proved enough on many days but not tonight. Steven Smith gave him good company in a 130-run stand but the hosts lost the plot towards the end, where they managed just 41 in the last 5 overs.
Dew. It was always due. And that is why we felt that the home side were 10-15 runs light. They should have got to 200 having been 150 in 15 but lost their way. With the ball, their bowlers struggled big time and no one really looked to put pressure on Delhi, though Archer and Parag were economically okay.
An extremely well-planned run chase. The 72-run opening stand between Dhawan and Shaw set things up and though Rajasthan did come back with 2 quick wickets in the span of 8 balls, the 84-run partnership between Pant and Shaw almost sealed the deal then. Shaw was just beginning to get frustrated but the cameo of 78 from just 36 balls from Rishabh Pant took the pressure completely off Prithvi. Slowly, he eased into his own but the stage belonged to the wicket-keeper dasher.
Pant roars. The Delhi dugout claps. Ganguly is smiling. Ponting is happy. Smith is not. Is that the end of the road for Rajasthan? Is this the beginning of the dominance for Delhi?

Jaydev Unadkat To Rishabh Pant
SIX! Yes, that is a maximum. That has hit the ropes on the full! Pant is pumped up as he is the one who finishes it off in style. A short ball and it is once again on the slower side. Pant pulls it high towards the mid-wicket fence. It seems to have hit the ropes on the full. The umpires take it upstairs and replays confirm that. DELHI WIN BY 6 WICKETS AND WITH 4 BALLS TO SPARE!
Is the game over? Well, Stokes did signal it has hit the ropes on the full but the umpires have taken it upstairs to check.

Outside off, Ingram backs away and looks to cut but gets a thick outside edge to third man. A single taken. 5 needed from 5 now.

Jofra Archer To Rishabh Pant
SIX! BANG! Pant has probably delivered the final blow! Brilliant shot this. It is full and on middle, Pant powers it over the long on fence for a biggie. 6 needed in the last over. Delhi's game to lose now.

Jofra Archer To Colin Ingram
Excellent stuff from Archer. He bowls it full on middle, Ingram pushes it towards mid off for another single. 12 needed in 7 balls. An important last ball coming up.

Jofra Archer To Rishabh Pant
Comey of errors there! Very costly, very costly at this stage of the game. Rajasthan can't afford this. Archer bangs this short and it is the slower one. Pant looks to pull but only manages a top edge which goes high up in the air but lands in no man's land in the mid-wicket region. They take one but then Binny who runs in from mid-wicket, slips as he tries to pick the ball up. The batsmen take two. Then however, the ball slips out of Stokes' hands who does the mopping up job giving the batsmen another run. Three in total!

Just a single now! Another yorker on off, Ingram jams it out towards point for a run.

Jofra Archer To Colin Ingram
Two dots in a row now and nearly a run out. Archer goes full this time, Ingram ends up playing outside the line as he looks to smash it through covers. It goes off the inner half towards the bowler who makes a half stop. Ingram is off for a run but Pant sees Smith at mid off getting to the ball quickly so he refuses the single. Colin though makes it back in time.

Bangs it short and outside off, Ingram looks to cut but misses. A dot to begin. Gold dust.
Colin Ingram walks in for the finishing duties. Jofra Archer returns as well. 3-0-20-0 so far.
