That's all we've today in this match as my partner, Pratyush Rohra and I, Sudheer are signing off at the moment but do stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more matches coming your way from around the world. Cheers and have fun.
Dwayne Bravo (Delhi Bulls): Happy with the performance today. it gives the best chance to finishin top 2 if we can manage to win the next game as well. Credit to the team for putting their hand up today and performing like they did. Openers did a wonderful job to finish off the match in that fashion and good to be winning the game. So much talent in the side and good to see such cricket from these boys. I just ask them to express themselves, capitialize in the powerplay and then take it from there. It's the playoff time and need to carry on the good job for the up coming matches with the chance to move up in the table.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Player of the match): Thanks to Allah. Before the game, the captain and coach told me to play my natural game and that we need to chase the target early. So yeah, that was the plan. You have to enjoy the cricket. There is some pressure early on but if you start well, that pressure shifts to the other team. Thankfully, I have some senior players in my side that encourage me. 
That's the end of the match and this has been an entertaining finish to the match with Rahmanullah Gurbaz playing a mind boggling innings against the Chennai Braves attack. He scored his half century in just 14 balls and helped his team chase the target of 81 in just 4.1 overs. Chanderpaul Hemraj, at the other end, played a helping hand of 24 from just 9 balls by hitting the final boundary off the innings. 

Chennai Braves had no chance to restrict the rampaging Delhi Bulls openers. With a very low total to defend, they didn't have the best of the start to the innings and had no chance to come back into the game. 

This win puts Delhi Bulls on 3rd position on the points table with one match to go and chance to break into top two if they win their last league game. Chennai Braves are still winless in the tournament and this has been a forgetful one for them losing 9 of the 10 games played in the tournament. They will need to do some homework before the start of the next season and get in some quality players to turn it around for the next season.
5.0
4.1 Mark Deyal to Chandrapaul Hemraj, FOUR! Game, set, match. Thank you so much for coming, folks! That was a battering if there was one. Into the left-hander at a fullish length, Hemraj gets down on one knee and picks this up with the sweep to behind square leg to find the ropes. The Delhi Bulls slaughter the Chennai Braves by 10 wickets. 
It's almost over. Just 4 more required to win for Delhi Bulls. Rahmanullah Gurbaz has played an absolute gem of an innings in the middle.

3.6 Dasun Shanaka to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, FOUR! Imperious. Fullish delivery outside off-stump, Gurbaz puts the dancing shoes on as if he's facing a spinner and creams a lofted inside-out drive over extra cover for a boundary. The Bulls are just one hit away now.
3.5 Dasun Shanaka to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, into the blockhole around off-stump this time, Gurbaz shovels it out back to the bowler, no run
3.4 Dasun Shanaka to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, SIX! What a way to get the fastest half-century in the tournament! Short and into Gurbaz, stands tall for the pull. Just like everything today, he's swatted it over mid-wicket for a biggie! Gets a big hug from Shahzad as well.
3.3 Dasun Shanaka to Chandrapaul Hemraj, overpitched delivery around off-stump, Hemraj drills it to extra cover for a single. A direct hit would have been gone, no doubt about it!
3.2 Dasun Shanaka to Chandrapaul Hemraj, FOUR! Length delivery wide of off-stump, away from Hemraj's arc as he throws his bat at it. Skews a thick outside edge that evades short third man and skitles away into the ropes
3.1 Dasun Shanaka to Chandrapaul Hemraj, SIX! Tries to bang it in short first up but it's just sat up nicely for Hemraj. Stands tall for a crunching hook over square leg to clear the ropes. Merciless batting!
Dasun Shanaka, right arm medium, comes into the attack.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is on a roll here and he is just taming the bowlers like he is batting in a net session. 19 runs came off that over and now they require just 25 runs to win.

2.6 Curtis Campher to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, OHH! He's disgusted with himself! Short and wide outside off. It was there to be hit but Gurbaz wafts at it tentatively and misses out. 
2.5 Curtis Campher to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, SIX! Good length delivery angling into Gurbaz, he steps down the track again and whips this one over short fine leg and over the ropes for a maximum! Running out of superlatives to describe some of these strokes now.
2.4 Curtis Campher to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, FOUR! THUMPED! Short of a length delivery into Gurbaz, swivels on it to pull towards deep square leg. The fielder might have done better there but that was stuck with some venom. Fifty up for the Bulls!
2.3 Curtis Campher to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, FOUR MORE! Slower ball gone wrong, full toss around off-stump, Gurbaz shuffles a long way across and helps it past short fine leg. No need to run for those!
