That's it for this game everyone!! We hope that you enjoyed this live coverage between Delhi and Kerala. Stay tuned on Sportskeeda for all the live cricketing updates from around the world. This is Navjeevan Rajput and alongside me, Sameer Deodhar signing off till then take care and stay safe!!
Robin, unfortunately, failed to bring up his century as he looked to finish off the game in a bit of a hurry and was caught out on 95 runs. Salman the new batsman ensured that there was no further drama in this innings and finished the match off and won the game for Kerala with one over to spare and by 6 wickets!
Luck started to favor Kerala as Vinod who as clean bowled by Ishant was provided a lifeline as it was front-foot no-ball bowled by Ishant. What brought upon Delhi after that was absolute carnage in Wankhede. They continued to bat on and obliterated the Delhi bowlers whoever came on to bowl.

The duo managed to bring up a 100 run stand in the 16th over and none of the Delhi bowlers knew how to get a wicket here! Robin along with Vinod just motored along and did some smart batting by depositing the bad balls into the stands!
Both the batsman started to accelerate on this batting wicket and kept up the required run rate. The partnership flourished as they had a 51 runs stand between. Sachin had the softest of dismissals as he chipped one straight to Lalit who tossed it up to him.

Robin continued to collect the boundaries and kept his side in the game by scoring at the required run rate. Robin, later on, reached his half-century. Robin along with Vishnu Vinod shifted gears quickly and kept on scoring those boundaries.
Coming in to chase a big total, Kerala did not have the best of starts as the Hero from the previous match MD Azharudeen was sent back to the hut by Ishant Sharma for a 0. Kerala skipper Sanju Samson then came out to bat and got going alongside Robin Uthappa and started the counter-attack.

Unfortunately, Samons stay at the crease did not last long as he was sent packing by Pradeep Sangwan when he was batting on 16. Sachin Baby who was the new batsman in did not waste much time and got going along with Robin at the other end.
Ishant bowling the previous over in hopes that he could pull off a miracle and take the match to the last over. Unfortunately, that wasn't supposed to be the case so as Salman Nizar the new batsman hammers a boundary and a maximum to finish the match off. Kerala thus pulls another emphatic win over Delhi with one over to spare!
18.6 Ishant Sharma to Salman Nizar, SIX! Advances again and the top-edges lands outside the fence behind the keeper! Kerala have pulled off a victory over Delhi by 6 wickets!
18.5 Ishant Sharma to Salman Nizar, FOUR! Ishant watches Nizar dance down the track and drops one short, Nizar keeps his eyes on the ball and swivels it to deep backward sqaure leg for four! Scores tied!

18.1 Ishant Sharma to Vishnu Vinod, Vinod taps the length ball just outside off towards the keeper, very close to the stumps
Robin's innings finally comes to a close in the previous over. Although, he has done the best for his side as Kerala is now inches away from a thumping victory here! They need just 8 runs in 12 balls!

Ishant Sharma comes on to bowl the penultimate over!
