Delhi won by 6 wickets
Delhi win this match comfortably by 6 wickets and 3 overs to spare!

Andra needed early wickets to make this encounter into a low-scoring thriller and they just did that courtesy to Harishankar Reddy who took the big wicket of Shikhar Dhawan and Hiten Dalal and created some pressure on Delhi early on.

Nitesh Rana and Anuj Rawat (33 in 31) struggled at the start but did well to set themselves in and saw through the powerplay. Rawat was the one who took on the dominant role and started to cut loose himself and collected the boundaries.

Andra did not introduce spin in the first of the innings and continued with their pace attack. Unfortunately for them, Delhi batters Rana and Anuj continued to bat through and calculated the pace of the innings quite nicely.

Sasikanth finally got the breakthrough for Andra in the 11th over where Anuj after hitting a boundary looked to work it down to the third man but instead edged it straight to the keeper. Rana continued bat through at the other end. Himmat who joined Rana did not waste much time and got going.

Rana unfortunately was run out and his stay came to an end. Himmat Singh (32* in 23) towards the end just took the attack to Harishankar Reddy and created the most expensive over for the match to help Delhi get over the line with 3 overs to spare.

Himmat looks in a bit of a hurry and might be hungry for his lunch here. He just belts away for a maximum and a couple of boundaries to the bowler who took a couple of early wickets. Lalit hammers the winning runs and helps Delhi cross the finish line with 3 overs to spare.
