That is it from us at Sportskeeda  today. Do join us tomorrow for clash between RCB and KXIP. We would be keen for your company. Till then, it is goodbye and good night.
Delhi are kept alive and stand sixth.
A match defined by two big partnerships is ultimately defined by the second one of those. First, Raina and Karthik added 133 in 12 overs to repair Gujarat's innings after they were 10/2. After that, it was the young pair of Pant and Samson which absolutely massacred the opposition's bowlers with 143 runs in less than 11 overs. That was more than enough. The fate of the match - and that of Gujarat in the tournament - had been sealed. Gujarat are now knocked out of the tournament. and there would be a lot of thinking that would be going on in the Gujarat camp. They have failed to defend any score this season while Delhi have now hunted down 186 and 209 in consecutive games.
"Sanju and I thought of making use of the bad ball. Most of the time I like to play aggressively, and that is what I did today. We are taking one match at a time and looking to do well," are the words of the hero Rishab Pant.
Man of the Match - Rishab Pant
"Amazing performance. It was one of the best partnerships I have ever seen. We just had to go from ball one, and we pulled this off. We had to play with freedom and I am glad we are executing that," says the host and winning captain Karun Nair
Stylish Player of the Day - Sanju Samson
Maximum Sixes Award - Rishab Pant
Perfect Catch of the Match - Corey Anderson
Time for the presentation.
"It was Rishab Pant's day. He batted really well Sanju Samson. We tried a lot of variations but the game was over pretty early. We don't have that experience with the old ball. Pant and Samson are the future of India. We were 20 runs short," rues the visiting skipper Suresh Raina.
