Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all from us tonight. Thanks for your company. Double header tomorrow, do join us

Shikhar Dhawan is the Player of the Match: Yeah, I Knew it could be my first T20 hundred but I also knew that the team goal was more important, which is why I looked for a single rather than a big shot in the end. I was just telling Dinesh (Karthik) that it’s a beautiful pitch here, which supports good cricket. At the same time we have to adapt to the Delhi wicket, that’s also a skill to have. I knew I had to stay till the end, we knew we had to take the game deep and we couldn’t afford to lose a wicket when Rishabh joined me in the middle

Shreyas Iyer: It’s amazing feeling and to be honest before the match I was just recollecting the last win. It was really tough for us to decide the team but me and the management got together and decided to include Keemo Paul and the way everyone performed was outstanding. We love to bat on such tracks, the way we played in Mumbai as well, the way Shikhar Dhawan took us through to the end is something to be appreciated. Amazing to watch him. One of the top order players had to take the responsibility and he did.

RishabhPant: I just try to keep my head clear. The plan was to take the game deep. When you’re chasing 180, you need to pace the innings in a way that you complete the match in 18-19 overs. We were just talking about taking the match deep and that both of us should remain there till the end

Dinesh Karthik: “It’s hard on Joe (Denly) coming in first game getting out first ball. Picking wickets has been pretty hard on this ground. Having said that, couple of areas for the bowlers to work on and come back harder

11.35pm Having botched up a couple of run-chases from strong positions, the Capitals have done this perfectly. The two batsmen who got in batted virtually right through to the end, ensuring that their dugout has their finger nails in tact. Dhawan couldn’t get his maiden IPL hundred but he roared back into form, and Pant played with the kind of assurance that might get him his ticket to England, with the squad due to be announced in a couple of days. Knight Riders looked pretty toothless with the ball and weren’t helped by an early fielding lapse, which could have resulted in Dhawan’s wicket within the Power-Play. They’ll need to regroup and figure out ways of taking wickets, particularly when they are defending totals and Russell can’t bail them out

18.5 6 Chawla to Ingram full on middle and Ingram has launched this down the ground to finish the game in style and deny Dhawan the hundred SIX
18.4 1 Chawla to Dhawan quicker one on the pads, Dhawan pushes it to deep squareleg for a single 1 run

17.4 1 Rana to Ingram length outside off, was shaping to scoop it but guides it to point as an afterthought and they scamper one 1 run
17.3 0 Rana to Ingram fired into the pads, pushed back no run
17.2 1 Rana to Dhawan short outside off, cut away to deep point 1 run
17.1 W Rana to Pant full on middle, Pant goes for another one-handed slog over long-on, doesn’t get enough of it and is well taken right at the boundary. Played his role to near perfection, though OUT

16.2 4 Russell to Pant full outside off, overpitched, asking to be driven and Pant obliges, blasting it through the covers FOUR

Avi: “How sensible is Pant today… Maybe a senior partner at other end is helping him… Good for Indian cricket..!”

16.1 1 Russell to Dhawan length on off, pace off the ball, pushed to long-off 1 run

End of Over No.16 Delhi Daredevils 148/2 This Over (10 runs)

yanthan: “How many are worried about Kuldeep’s form? He has been very ordinary this year. Is it because the batsmen can now read his action/hand? I feel he has lost his mojo!”

15.6 2 Kuldeep Yadav to Pant full on the pads, Pant comes down the wicket and pushes it between long-on and deep midwicket for an easy couple. The Knight Riders appear pretty deflated 2 runs
15.5 1 Kuldeep Yadav to Dhawan length outside off, steers it to short third-man to get into the 90s 1 run
15.4 4 Kuldeep Yadav to Dhawan full on off, down the wicket comes Dhawan and targets the short straight boundary, one bounce and off it goes FOUR

End of Over No.15 Delhi Daredevils 138/2 This Over (8 runs)

harnam: “With another relatively easy T20 century possible here, can we all reflect at how rare this was only a few years ago. How long before ODI double centuries become more common as well?”

14.6 2 Prasidh Krishna to Dhawan full outside off, throws his hands at it and slices it past point for a couple 2 runs
14.5 0 Prasidh Krishna to Dhawan short outside off, pace and bounce, beats Dhawan as he tries to punch it with a straight bat rather than cut no run

Sangeetha Krish: “Ok…. Now, it’s time for the customary collapse and super over!!”

praxnit: “in this IPL, DC has become famous for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Hope they won’t do it today.”

Jana: “Based on previous experience, I strongly believe DC has the tendency to make a complete mess until they hit the last winning run.”

Navjot S Bhatia: “Dhawan has hit 3-4 boundaries throgh cover drives in last couple of overs. Should DK not have adjusted the Field accordingly on time..??” Perhaps a case for bowlers adjusting their length and not floating it up

14.4 1 Prasidh Krishna to Pant length on middle, angled in, Pant has a swing, misses and gets one on the unmentionables. He looks winded. Break in play as he catches his breath 1 leg bye
14.3 1 Prasidh Krishna to Dhawan full and angled in, Dhawan makes room and pushes it to the cover region for one 1 run
14.2 4 Prasidh Krishna to Dhawan full outside off, overpitched and Dhawan hands through the ball again, beats the diving mid-off to his right and after that there is no stopping it FOUR
