So with that, we complete today's coverage of the match between RPS and DD. Do join our live coverage for the match that will be contested between MI and SRH tomorrow. 

Until then, goodbye and goodnight!
In the end, RPS have registered their second win in three games, while their run-rate has also taken a major beating as they find themselves sitting in the seventh position on the points table while DD sit pretty as a part of the top four. 

Sanju Samson is adjudged as the man of the match for his stellar knock of 102 off 63 balls including 8 fours and five sixes.

He says: "
Very happy with the knock and to be part of a winning team. Very thankful to Rahul Sir and Paddy Upton for working with me a lot. We had a long training camp and the results are showing.

"I am working on my batting and am keen to iron out my mistakes. It was fun playing with Morris and also Rishabh Pant because he is a hard-hitter of the cricket ball, they helped me string together useful partnerships"

Zaheer Khan says: "Almost a perfect game, we needed that. This team has got plenty of potential, just need to back them. We just need to work on the processes".
"We have some good headache in our bowling, Shami, Rabada and Jayant are sitting out. It's just about clicking during a match situation".
"I have strong muscle memory I guess, the 92 Tests I have played has helped. The physios and trainers have worked a lot, I am enjoying my time. We have a young side, there's plenty of energy around. We got a lot of things right in the first game, but this win will help us go a long way in the tournament"

Ajinkya Rahane says : "I thought 180-190 would be good on this wicket. Credit to Delhi; Sanju (Samson) in the middle and Chris Morris at the end. I think our bowlers bowled well in the middle; Tahir and Zampa"
" Delhi got the momentum in the last three overs. No blame at all. When you are chasing a big target you need two big partnerships and we didn't get that"
"In T20 you have to learn from the past and move on. We have to believe in our ability and look forward to the next game".

It's no ordinary sight to see a top-order batsman strike a T20 century and it hadn't taken place in this year's IPL. That is, not until today. Sanju Samson, the Kerala-born top order batsman essayed a gem of an innings en route to the first century in this season's IPL with a classy mix of aggression and finesse aided with a little touch of innovativeness. 

As if that wasn't enough to knock the sails out of RPS's boat, Chris Morris produced probably the innings of his IPL career till date and his exceptional 9-ball 38 run knock that consisted of 4 fours and 3 sixes took away the game for Pune even before they stepped out to bat. 

RPS started off well, scoring 10 runs off the first over but after Zaheer Khan removed both openers in a space of two overs, none of the other batsmen could find their bearing and fell to the guile of the Delhi bowlers, setting up a comfortable 97-run win for the Daredevils. 
16.1 Cummins to Dinda, OUT! It's all over! That's an absolute stunner from Amit Mishra! Dinda chips it short cover, Mishra rushes forward and takes a brilliant catch to end Pune's misery! It's a comprehensive victory for Delhi, outclassing the hosts in all departments throughout the game! 
Pat Cummins will continue. 
108/9 after 16 balls. Delhi needs just one wicket to win from here. Can the next over be the last in this game?
15.6 Mishra to Tahir, no run, slow loopy leg break, Tahir goes back and defends
15.5 Mishra to Tahir, no run, full ball is defended
15.4 Mishra to Dinda, 1 run, full ball on off, slogged down to long on
Imran Tahir is in 
107/9 after 15.3 overs and its time for the second strategic time-out this match. It's been an all-round performance from DD and regular wickets have helped them to get the better of Pune.
15.3 Mishra to Zampa, OUT! Full and spinning away, Yet again, Zampa looks to slog the ball out of the ground, hardly times the ball and Samson completes a rather easy running catch at  deep mid-wicket.

15.2 Mishra to Zampa, no run, full ball, Zampa looks to send the ball into the orbit, is beaten by the spin on the ball. 
15.1 Mishra to Dinda, 1 run, backs away and cuts it to sweeper cover
Amit Mishra to continue
106/8 after 15 overs. All a matter of time now until DD wrap this up. RPS need 106 off 36 balls. 
14.6 Zaheer to Zampa, no run, length ball angled across Zampa who try to play at it but is beaten comprehensively. 
14.5 Zaheer to Dinda, 1 run, slow ball, Dinda slogs it across to deep mid-wicket, only a single, only a single. 
14.5 Zaheer to Dinda, WIDE, down the leg side
14.4 Zaheer to Dinda, no run, short ball, Dinda slogs and misses, makes it an ugly sight in the end!
14.3 Zaheer to Dinda, FOUR! What a shot! full ball on off, Dinda makes some room and slashes at it, manages to clear the covers fielder with ease and the ball rockets to the cover fence for a boundary. 
14.2 Zaheer to Dinda, OUT, or is it? Full ball angled across, Dinda looks to drive, gets the outside edge and it flies to first slip, Karun dives to his left, but the ball appears to graze the grass. Well, well!! The third-umpire rules it as NOTOUT but nevertheless, a fantastic attempt from the Karnataka lad!

Ashoke Dinda is the new man in 
14.1 Zaheer to Chahar, OUT! Down the track comes Chahar, Zaheer bangs it in, Chahar goes for the pull and ends up edging it to Pant, Zaheer has a mouthful for the youngster Chahar. 
Zaheer Khan is in 
100/7 after 14 overs. Almost a lost cause now, RPS need 106 off 36 balls. 
13.6 Mishra to Zampa, no run, flat and full, Zampa looks to repeat the stroke, hit on the pads
