Haryana won by 5 wickets
That's all from this game! Do join us tomorrow for another action packed day of cricket, as all of us at SportsKeeda bring you all the live action from around the world. I have been Ankit Sharma, along with Pradeep Somashekar, calling it a night! 
Credits to Rahul Tewatia and Rohit Sharma to keep their nerves, and live up to the challenge. Both of them too, got an odd edge here and there but escaped with luck on their side. Another dominant display of Haryana, showing their capabilities in this tournament. Just one game to go for them in the group stage against the second seeded Kerala. A must win game for Kerala to qualify on points, but Haryana won't fall that easily, as they'll be looking to extend their unbeaten run. 
Delhi will be disappointed with this performance. They started the match batting first, lost their captain in the blink of an eye, but fought back bravely, put on a great batting display, only to be held in the death by some top class bowling. 182 is normally a good total, but at this ground, with the dew coming in, it would have taken a tremendous bowling effort to restrict the in form Haryana batsman. Delhi started off poorly with the ball as well, leaking runs in the very first over. They did come back, got in quick wickets of settled batsmen, only to walk into a pool of arrayed shots and dominant batting. 
A thrilling contest comes to an end with Haryana rising as the winners, extend their unbeaten run with just one game left in the group for them. Sitting comfortable at the top of their group and will aim to finish there itself. A complete performance from Haryana, started the batting positively, attacking from ball 1, despite of losing wickets along the way, their approach hardly ever changed. Tewatia and Rohit have done a phenomenal job, having come at a time where wickets were following in quick succession but they countered everything thrown their way with a flamboyant performance. All eyes were on Tewatia to take it home, but Rohit Sharma was the hero off the two, scored 48 off just 21 deliveries. 
Haryana have chased the total, quite easily I must say looking at how the innings went. Delhi had their chance in the middle overs, when they got quick wickets, but Rohit Sharma and Rahul Tewatia made sure there are no further casualties. A brilliant chase by Haryana who have won by 5 wickets. 
18.2 Nitish Rana to Rohit Sharma, ALL OVER FOR DELHI! What a game of cricket we've witnessed. Haryana have stormed into this game and stole the show right at the end and won this game out of no where. That was full on the off stump. Rohit comes on the front foot to tap it away from the cover region as they decide to come back for a second to win this encounter by five wickets! Haryana's unbeaten run continues!
18.1 Nitish Rana to Rahul Tewatia, low full toss on the off stump as Tewatia on the front foot drives it down the ground to long-off for a single
An iconic Rohit Sharma pull shot for a maximum! Same iconic name, same iconic shot, but it's the rookie Rohit Sharma to pull two back to back sixes to seal the deal. Just 3 runs needed now. Poor bowling for Sangwan, too loose, albeit the sloppy fielding, the bowling had to be better. 
Over: 18 | Summary: 6 1 2 2 6 6 Bowler: Pradeep Sangwan Score: 180/5
17.6 Pradeep Sangwan to Rohit Sharma, SIX! BANG! Went even further this time over the fine-leg boundary for a huge maximum. That was short again into Rohit who swivels to pull this one but not in control of the shot as it top edges over the fence this time. 23 runs from that over, Haryana are almost home!
17.5 Pradeep Sangwan to Rohit Sharma, SIX! BAM! This time gets hold of it and SMOKED it way over the deep backward square leg region for a huge maximum. It was short into Rohit on the leg stump line as Rohit swiveled to pull that one to make the most of it!
17.4 Pradeep Sangwan to Rohit Sharma, short delivery into Rohit as he swivels and pulls this one away but not in total control of that as the fielder at backward square leg runs back to hold on to it but falls safely in the end, another brace picked up
17.3 Pradeep Sangwan to Rohit Sharma, back of a length on the middle and off as Rohit goes on his knee to flick it on the on-side but top edge's way over the keeper's head as it falls just inside the ropes as Ishant Sharma runs across to cut it off, they come back for a brace
17.2 Pradeep Sangwan to Rahul Tewatia, touch fuller on the off stump as Tewatia smashes that one past the cover region as they get only a single
17.1 Pradeep Sangwan to Rahul Tewatia, SIX! Short delivery into Tewatia on the off stump and he SMOKED that one just over the head of the deep mid-wicket fielder who was well inside the ropes but couldn't hold on to it, goes all the way for a maximum!
Pradeep Sangwan, back into the attack. 
6 runs off the over, coming in singles and doubles, sufficient for Haryana to counter spin. Tewatia will look to take on the seamers with 3 overs to go and 26 needed. Delhi looking for a breakthrough, especially the wicket of Tewatia. 
Over: 17 | Summary: 1 1 1 0 1 2 Bowler: Nitish Rana Score: 157/5
16.6 Nitish Rana to Rohit Sharma, full toss on the outside off. Rohit dances down the track and smashes it towards deep covers as the fielder runs across to cut it off, couple of runs taken
16.5 Nitish Rana to Rahul Tewatia, touch full on the middle and off as Tewatia was quick enough to set himself up for a reverse sweep but doesn't hit it of the meat of the bat as the ball runs towards covers for a single
