Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s a wrap of this game. Thanks for reading. Goodbye and good night from myself and Alex. Cheers

Pant: Always happy whenever I take the team home. Last time I could not finish it, so this time I wanted to finish it. The pitch is always turning at Kotla, I just took the game deep. Firstly, we thought about doing within 10 overs [and go ahead of CSK], but then after wickets we just milked it around. Sometimes, you need to change your game according to this situation and that’s what I did today.

7.20pm Cheers, Alex. Here’s Rahane: We had our moments from the first game, but could not capitalise. Some of the guys are playing their third or fourth game, so it’s tough on them. Really happy with Parag – the way he handled pressure and showed his character. Gopal continued his form from last year and he’s a magnificent legspinner who always thinks about wickets. We knew 150 would have been difficult, but we did not bat according to the plan. The spinners – Ish was fantastic – KG bowled well. My season was good, batting-wise. As a captain, it’s a different role.

Delhi win by five wickets with 23 balls to spare. Rajasthan’s season is over. Brilliant knock by Pant to finish off the great work his bowlers did to restrict the Royals to just 115. Deivarayan will step in for the post-game presentation.

16.1 6 Sodhi to Pant he smashes this short ball into the crowd over wide long on! Pant brings up the win and a half-century in style! Brilliant innings. It was a drag down and he sat back and clubbed it to ice the game. SIX

One run to win. Sodhi to bowl.
