That will be all from your host Abhishek alongside my co-commentator Bala as we bid you goodbye from Sportskeeda. Goodnight if you tuned us from India! Do join us tomorrow as well as we have the 2nd India vs New Zealand Test match starting off live from the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. 
Dwayne Bravo (Delhi Bulls captain): That was the aim (qualifying for the Qualifiers and not just getting the win). So, I am very proud of the boys. First, we have to be professional. Winning the tournament is also very important. We have to enjoy this win and then focus on the next match. In this tournament, there is no such thing as peaking at the right time. Any team can take the game away from you in a match by playing better than you. 
Ramanullah Gurbaz (Player of the Match): Bismillah Rahman Rahim! I am in good form. I was just positive and did my job. DJ Bravo as a captain, you would be relaxed every time. I learnt a lot about cricket from him. I can't explain my emotions. 
Defending a total of 135 runs, Delhi Bulls tried their best to restrict Team Abu Dhabi to 107 runs as a run more than that would squash their hopes of making it to the Qualifiers. And boy, they did it in some style!

Eoin Morgan started the innings with spin and Hemraj got the wicket of Paul Stirling in the very first over. With the duo of Phil Salt and Liam Livingstone looking dangerous in the middle, things were going out of the hands for the Bulls. 

The duo took Team Abu Dhabi from 8/1 to 41/1 in 13 balls. However, Salt fell first to Shiraz Ahmed ending his 9 ball sojourn scoring 25 balls. Liam Livingstone was the next one to depart after scoring 29 runs off 14 balls. 

Adil Rashid took his wicket and he scalped Colin Ingram and Jamie Overton as well with his googlies to complete his hat-trick. The rest of the batting line-up crumbled like a pack of cards as the death bell rang near to them. 

Dominic Drakes took a three-wicket haul while Shiraz Ahmed and Chandrapaul Hemraj took a wicket apiece. With the win, Delhi Bulls would be oozing with confidence heading into the Qualifiers as they are two wins away from lifting the coveted 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 title. 
Done and dusted! And with that 49-run win, Delhi Bulls surpasses Team Abu Dhabi on the points table to make way into Qualifiers 1.

9.6 Dominic Drakes to Naveen-ul-Haq, slower ball full outside off. Squirts it out to short thirdman for one
9.6 Dominic Drakes to Naveen-ul-Haq, gets the direction wrong with the final delivery of the innings. Goes well down the leg-side. Has to reload it once again
9.5 Dominic Drakes to Merchant de Lange, low full toss on middle and leg. Drives it down to long-on for a single
9.4 Dominic Drakes to Naveen-ul-Haq, good length ball on the off-stump. Lofts it straight back over the bowler but finds Dwayne Bravo at long-on
9.3 Dominic Drakes to Merchant de Lange, full ball on middle and leg. Lofts it straight down to long-on for a single
OUT! Farooq has to depart. Team Abu Dhabi are 8 wickets down and Naveen ul Haq should be the next batsman in. 
9.2 Dominic Drakes to Muhammad Farooq, OUT! Drakes gets one! Brilliant catch by Rutherford! Short of a length outside the off-stump. Farooq miscues it to the left of mid-off in a bid to force it. Rutherford dives to his left and plucks it out.

9.1 Dominic Drakes to Merchant de Lange, good length ball closer to the off-stump. Drives it to mid-off and takes a single
9.1 Dominic Drakes to Merchant de Lange, off-cutter angling across the right-hander. The umpire reckons it is a touch too wide of the off-stump
Just three times Marchant de Lange managed to connect the bat with the ball and on one of those occasions, he nearly got caught out. Team Abu Dhabi require 57 runs to win from 6 balls.
