That's all from this match. Yet another loss for Bangalore and they are just refusing to turn up as a team. We now switch our attention to the next game of the evening between Kolkata and Rajasthan. See you soon. Cheers!
Man of the Match, Kagiso Rabada says that it's been a weird tournament for them as a team but he is glad that today it worked for him. Adds that he just tries to execute simple skills and bowl it in the decent areas. Mentions that he just backs himself and states that he is always there for his team. Tells that he tries to execute his skills at the start and at the death.
Victorious Delhi captain, Shreyas Iyer, says that the pitch was two-paced and really tough to bat on. Adds that he trusted his positive skills and did not want the bowlers to get on top. Stresses that the cut shot is his strength but he also focused on keeping the strike rotating by taking singles here and there. Reckons that Bangalore were 10-15 runs short and praises Kagiso Rabada on his bowling today. Is not too happy with the way Delhi achieved this win and wants the other batsmen to come good, though is also positive that they will come good as the tournament goes deep. Says that it is a great feeling to have won the game and then go back to see smiling faces in the dressing room.
Prithvi Shaw is now up for a chat. Says that Delhi seem to have made a habit of taking games close. Adds that finishing off matches was one aspect which was discussed in team meetings and hopes that the next contest does not run so deep. On his own form post that 99 against Kolkata, Shaw says that he enjoyed himself even today and wanted to take the onus of scoring runs quickly. On teams attacking him by bowling straight, Prithvi is not too worried about that and says that his main focus is on playing his own game.
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that 160 was competitive. The pitch was dry but we kept losing wickets and he just wanted to take it deep. He says they did but it was not good enough. Tells that they can't give excuses every game and need to find a way to win. Says he was not happy with the way he got out and feels had he stayed till the end, they could have scored another 25-30 runs which could have made a difference. Feels Shreyas Iyer's dropped catch cost them the game, had it been taken, he feels they could have done well as Delhi panicked towards the end. Wants his team to play expressive cricket and take it easy.
The chase started for Delhi on a wrong note as they lost Shikhar Dhawan for a golden duck but after that Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer combined to raise a 68-run stand. The former, in particular, took Tim Southee to the cleaners in the third over where Delhi amassed 20 runs. That set the momentum for the run chase and the touring team never looked back. Bangalore was abysmal in the field and the dropped catch of Shreyas Iyer in the first over did cost them big time. Nothing much to write about the home team's bowling but credit should be given to Navdeep Saini and Moeen Ali for trying hard.
A bit of a hiccup towards the end but still a convincing victory for Delhi. They played a near-perfect match today and have handed Bangalore their seventh loss on the trot in the League, sixth this season. Their bowlers set it up nicely by restricting Bangalore to a below-par total and then their batsmen scaled down the target with ease. With this win, Delhi have broken their 2-match losing streak and become the fifth team to have 6 points on the board at the moment.

Strategic Break - Only a tragic collapse can see Delhi lose this game. They are well on top and require just 19 runs off 24 balls. Bangalore have been listless in the field and it seems they are just waiting for the match to end.
