Player of the match: Ali Khan
That brings us to the end of the first day of the Super League stage and the T10 league continues to give us some wonderful cricketing action! Three more bangers coming your way tomorrow from Round 2. You do not want to miss any of the action! Stay tuned as we'll see you back tomorrow then. This is myself (Rishab) and Prashanth biding good-bye. Have a great night!
It was that brilliant spell earlier on from Ali Khan that helped the Bulls restrict the Gladiators and that did prove to make a huge difference in the end result. They bowled really well and the blitz from Pollard towards the end not being enough to give his side a daunting total. And then of course the openers for the Bulls did all the damage and a complete all-round performance as they pocket two more points! Dominating effort and a comprehensive victory in the end for them! 
None of the Gladiators bowlers could create any sort of pressure on the batsmen at the top. They needed early wickets which they never got as the bowlers were being smacked left, right and center all around! Imran Tahir being the only one there who picked up the two wickets to fall but it was most certainly too late by then as the Bulls had raced away with the chase! 
It was never going to be easy defending 118 given the format of this game for the Gladiators! Turned out to be a one-sided chase as Gurbaz and Lewis got the Delhi Bulls off to flying start. They completely took the game away with their merciless hitting at the top, smashing every bowler all over the park. The way they started, there was no way the Gladiators were coming back in the contest. Glorious batting from the duo as they killed the game at the very top. Gurbaz almost getting to a fifty that he missed out on. Sherfane Rutherford in the end continuing the fireworks and ensuring that the Bulls got over the line comfortably in the end! 
Finishes off in style and easy as you like does Rutherford! 8 wickets and just about two overs to spare! Convincing victory for them this and they will be pleased with the show they have put up tonight. Job well done there!
8.1 Cameron Delport to Sherfane Rutherford, BULLS WIN BY 8 WICKETS! Length ball down the leg side and Rutherford helps this one over short fine-leg for a boundary to wrap up this contest
This has been a really well bowled over from Zahoor Khan with the full length deliveries and the bouncers. Not a lot left for him to bowl with but he's done well enough. Doesn't matter now as the Bulls are just a hit away! 1 needed off 12

Imran Tahir getting both the openers! The googly again and a fantastic knock from Gurbaz coming to an end! The Gladiators fighting back here but is it really too late? Looks like it is as Rutherford taking over the action now! He's made sure they are doing this without much trouble and that is some glorious hitting. Unlucky for Tahir though. Just 6 more needed off 18 now
