That's all folks! We've had a great time bringing you live updates from this encounter! 

Do join us tomorrow as the action shifts to the Eden Gardens where KKR is set to host CSK in a high-voltage clash! Ciao for now!
With this thrilling win, Delhi Daredevils continue to keep their hopes alive of qualify for the playoffs and occupy the 6th place on the points table while Rajasthan dropped down to 8th place and will need to bounce back quick and fast to make a move up the table. 
Rishabh Pant, Man of the Match: "It is going really great for me but I have no added pressure (On being asked if there is pressure after being retained). I try using different tricks to go against different bowlers. 

That is the way I play and there's nothing special (On asked about his batting style). We all know that every match is a knockout and we will be out if we lose another match. We always play with the same intent and hope it continues". 
Shreyas Iyer: "It was a very important victory for us. This wicket is very good and at this ground even 200 is very less. It is very tough to bowl under pressure and our bowlers kept their nerve and we came back strong. 

The starts that Shaw is giving is amazing and Pant's role is very important. We can still make it to the knockouts and it is important for us to win all the matches. The ground is very small and it is very difficult to contain the batsmen and so I feel our bowlers came back really well". 
Trent Boult, Purple Cap holder: "It's good to get few games and using my skills against some top class players is always fun and everything is a learning curve. It is a learning curve.

Obviously, trying to back myself and also trying to wrack the brains of some people and the management. We are off to Hyderabad tomorrow and we will see how it goes there. We need to take it game by game. He's a quality player and is quite feareless. He goes out there and plays his shots, he has a lot in his tank." (On Rishabh Pant)
Ajinkya Rahane: "A disappointing result obviously. Credit must go to the batsmen for their show. I felt 192 was a little too much for just 17 overs but the wicket was pretty good. The ball was coming on and we did not execute all of our bowling plans well. However, it is still a learning curve for all of our bowlers.

Buttler was obviously magnificent at the top of the order. We all know that he is a very dangerous player and he proved why he is world class. It is excellent to see him in such good form. 

We can still make it to the top four. Every game from this stage is a knockout game and it is important to keep the right mindset. We need to keep calm and maintain a positive attitude and we will need to show character". 
What a thrilling contest this has been! 

Credit must be given to the Rajasthan batsmen for having got so close, courtesy of some scintillating batting from Englishman Jos Buttler, who ripped the Delhi bowling with a 26-ball 67 run knock laced with 7 sixes and 4 fours. 

However, a poor start from D'Arcy Short played antagonist in the end as none of the other batters could find the middle after Short's dismissal as the middle order wilted under the pressure. 

Trent Boult, who deservingly won the Purple Cap with yet another magnificent show (2/26) produced some quality death bowling to restrict the RR batsmen in the end which saw them win the important encounter. 
Over 12 RR: 146/5(RR 12.17) Bowler: T Boult Sum..: wd 1 2 b W 4 1
11.6 Boult to Gowtham, 1 run, Delhi Dardevils win by 4 runs! Another fantastic wide yorker from Boult, Gowtham cannot get it away, brilliant last over from Boult and the Daredevils have deservingly won this contest!
6 runs needed off the final ball!
11.5 Boult to Gowtham, FOUR, Oh no! Shreyas Iyer, what have you done?! Gowtham has slogged this length ball into the heavens, Iyer had to wait for an eternity for it come down, but he has put it down and the ball has trickled across to the boundary. Could this prove to be a costly error?
Jofra Archer, right-hand batsman has arrived at the crease. 
11.4 Boult to Tripathi, OUT! Run out at the non-striker's end! Brilliant wide yorker again, Tripathi misses, Gowtham scampers across, but Tripathi is too late to respond, so Pant has enough time to pass the ball back to Boult, who manages to keep his composure and remove the bails on this occasion. RR need 10 from 2 balls. 
Fabulous bowling from Boult. RR now need 10 runs off 3 balls. 
11.3 Boult to Gowtham, no run, slower yorker outside off, Gowtham misses it, they scamper through for a bye. Surely a run-out opportunity as well, but Boult fails to collect Pant's throw. 
11.2 Boult to Gowtham, 2 runs, full outside off, Gowtham looks to slice that towards extra cover, but he doesn't get enough on it, but there's enough time for the batsmen to run two
11.1 Boult to Tripathi, 1 run, slower ball from Boult, Tripathi doesn't get enough on that slog, it reaches deep square leg where Vijay Shankar does the fielding to keep it down to just a single
11.1 Boult to Tripathi, 1 wide, that is a terrible ball. Boult went for the slower one, but it was too far outside off stump. Pressure falls early on Boult in the over. 
Well,well! Krishnappa Gowtham showing his power-hitting! A six off the final ball and now Rajasthan require 15 runs off the final over. 

Trent Boult to bowl the final over. 
Over 11 RR: 136/4(RR 12.36) Bowler: L Plunkett Sum..: . 4 . 1 4 6
10.6 Plunkett to Gowtham, SIX, you beauty Gowtham! He's connected with that one, a poor length ball from Plunkett, and the ball sails beyond the mid-wicket fence. Gowtham heavs a huge sigh of relief as the RR dugout is up on it's feet. 15 to win off the last over
10.5 Plunkett to Gowtham, FOUR, that'll help! Gowtham looks to slog the leather off that length ball, gets a thick outside edge and it goes past short third-man to give the Royals some hope
10.4 Plunkett to Tripathi, 1 run, length ball from Plunkett, Tripathi gets a good connection, as he hits this down the ground, Maxwell reaches it quickly at long-on to keep the batsmen down to just a single. Lazy running from Krishnappa Gowtham, it could have been a double and Tripathi isn't happy. 
10.3 Plunkett to Tripathi, no run, off cutter from Plunkett, Tripathi misses a sweep, and wears it on the pads. Umpire gives it not out before Plunkett missed a run out opportunity. They've reviewed this one for LBW, presumably, and it's missing leg stump. Delhi lose their review.
10.2 Plunkett to Tripathi, FOUR! Short from Plunkett, Tripathi moves back and swivels on a pull shot to get this one past the boundary, RR will need a lot more of this to get close to the target. 
10.1 Plunkett to Tripathi, no run, off cutter from Plunkett again, Tripathi gets down on one knee and looks to slog it on the leg side, but is beaten
21 runs off that over and the important wicket of D'Arcy Short. Yes, important because he was finally going hammer and tongs. Now RR face the uphill task of scoring 30 runs from 12 balls. Still very much gettable. 
Over 10 RR: 121/4(RR 12.10) Bowler: G Maxwell Sum..: 6 6 6 W 2 1
9.6 Maxwell to Tripathi, 1 run, a little bit of table tennis from Mishra at short-third man! Wide yorker from Maxwell, Tripathi digs it out to short third man,where Mishra palms it on the turf to keep them down to a single.
