Hope you enjoyed our live coverage for this game. CSK await the Delhi challenge in Qualifier 2 which is on Friday. Do join us for that game as well. Until then, it's goodbye and goodnight from us!
Phew, how are the heart rates after that game? Delhi somehow find a way to make things interesting in the end and they've done that on quite a few occasions this season. Nonetheless, for the first time, Delhi have won a game in the knockouts! They now move onto Qualifier 2 where they meet CSK. 

Rishabh Pant [Man of the Match]: If you are set on a wicket like this, you have to finish the game. I took it very close, couldn't finish but next time, I'll try to finish it. I just try to be positive. In T20s, you have to have a big over when you need 40-odd from 4 overs. I just tried to time the ball today. 
Shreyas Iyer: Can't express my emotions. It was such a pressure situation. The last two overs were like hell. An amazing feeling to see everyone express themselves. The start they got was very good. Martin Guptill was tough to control. Mishy bhai [Amit Mishra] bowled really well with that spell. 160 was a good total to defend on this track. You just have to leave batsmen on their own, otherwise, it'll play on their mind. 
Kane Williamson: It was one of those surfaces which would produce close matches. I believe it was a competitive total as after the powerplay it was always going to be tricky in terms of momentum with the bat. If you reflect back on our season, there's been a number of occasions that have been very similar to this one. A little bit frustrating but credit to the way Delhi have played, they are a strong outfit. 
Prithvi Shaw started off on a blistering note, scoring his second half-century of the season. But wickets at regular intervals and then, Rashid Khan's magical double-wicket maiden got SRH back in it. Rishabh Pant almost killed the game with his 49 but his dismissal opened things up to take it to the final over. With 5 needed off 6, the tension and the pressure levels were hitting the roof and in the end, Delhi held their nerve to go through. 
Wow, what a game! Another humdinger! How did it get so close? Delhi once again almost bottled it up but Keemo Paul held his nerve there to take Delhi through. 
Keemo Paul has struck that past square for four and has pulled it off! The Delhi camp is ecstatic! Ricky Ponting, Shreyas Iyer and all the others are all pumped. 
19.5 FOUR! Khaleel Ahmed to Keemo Paul. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Shankar.
Tension all around. This is a realy humdinger here! 2 off 2 needed now and Keemo Paul is on strike. Just 2 wickets in hand. Which way is this going?
Oh drama, drama! Mishra missed but tries to sneak in a bye. But he changes direction as Khaleel tries to have a shy at the stumps. Yes, he's out obstructing the field. 
19.4 OUT! Obstructing Field. Khaleel Ahmed to Amit Mishra. Half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, shy attempt by Saha, shy attempt by Ahmed.
2 off 3 needed now. A big conference and quite a few people are around Khaleel at the moment. 
19.3 Khaleel Ahmed to Keemo Paul. Off cutter short, outside off stump moves in front cutting, mis-timed to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Hooda.
19.2 Khaleel Ahmed to Keemo Paul. Short, outside off stump backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.
Wide first ball and then a single. Pressure, pressure! 3 needed from 5 balls. Surely, Delhi can't bottle it from here! 
19.1 Khaleel Ahmed to Amit Mishra. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Kumar.
19.1 Wide Khaleel Ahmed to Amit Mishra. Off cutter short, wide outside off stump on the back foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Saha.
Meanwhile, Khaleel Ahmed to bowl the final over. He's done well so far but this is a pressure over. 
Final over to go and 5 needed off 6! Keemo Paul is a more than capable batsman and Mishra can hang around as well. But it has to be Paul who has to do it for Delhi. 
Over 19 DC: 158/7(RR 8.32) Bowler: B Kumar Summary: W . 6 1wd . W .
18.6 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Keemo Paul. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.
Rishabh Pant, what have you done? He's holed out at long-off and now, Delhi need 6 runs with just three wickets in hand. Is there a serious twist here? Can SRH believe and pull this off?
18.5 OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rishabh Pant. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover, by Nabi.
18.4 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rishabh Pant. Off cutter back of a length, down leg side on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumar.
Ah, Pant has killed this with a fabulous six down the ground! He's raced away to 49 off 19!
18.4 Wide Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rishabh Pant. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Saha.
18.3 SIX! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rishabh Pant. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs.
18.2 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rishabh Pant. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Guptill.
Bhuvi strikes and Rutherford holes out. Is there a twist in the tale?
