Delhi had exited the tournament at the same stage last year and their players came out in this match with a fearless approach. The team management sent Stoinis to open the innings alongside Shikhar Dhawan and the Australian all-rounder got Delhi off to a flying start, scoring 38 off 27 balls with the help of five fours and one maximum.
Apart from his batting, Stoinis also starred with the ball, taking key wickets of Manish Pandey and SRH top-scorer Kane Williamson to turn the tide in his side's favour.
With Williamson and young Abdul Samad going hard at DC bowlers, the game was well poised but Stoinis provided Delhi with the most important breakthrough, dismissing the New Zealand skipper in the 17th over.
He was the second most successful bowler for Delhi on the night behind pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada, returning with figures of 3 for 26 from his three overs.
Delhi will now face defending champions Mumbai Indians in the summit clash on November 10.
