...
And that's it from me here, don't forget to catch the second match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab.
...
For his fourth IPL fifty, Sanju Samson gets the Man of the Match. "Feels really good to be a part of this team. Me and JP walked in and talked about having a good partnership because we needed to get a good score. He gave great score. We are doing well as a team and hope we can continue," says Sanju Samson
...
Delhi Daredevils captain Zaheer Khan: "It was difficult if you hit the right areas. The plan was to use the bowlers nicely. The game was going to go on till the last over, that's what I felt in the beginning. It was about executing our plans and keeping 2-3 overs of legspin for Pollard and Buttler. Samson and JP played really well - took their time. They took the responsibility because we played an extra bowler today. It's tough when you have a big break but we are happy with the processes and making sure that practice sessions are not lengthy. There's lot of excitement; always is when you have a young team."

MI looked to be cruising when Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya were batting but the latter's dismissal turned out to be the turning point as MI struggled to find the boundary, Rohit was deprived of strike and in the end, they lost it by 10 runs. DD have now beaten Kings XI, RCB and MI. Will this be the start of something special?
...
19.6 Morris to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, towards long off! Low full toss and Pandya smashes it towards long off but only for a single. DD make it three wins in a row! They WIN by 10 runs!
...
That is an absolute peach of a delivery from Morris, who has got his yorkers spot on.
...
19.5 Morris to Tim Southee, 1 run, another yorker, Southee only manages to get an under edge to it towards De Kock!
...
13 needed off two balls. Two sixes need to tie the match and take it to a super over. SIXER Southee comes to the crease
...
19.4 Morris to Harbhajan Singh, OUT! what a yorker! Dead staright on middle stump, Harbhajan tries to swing across the line and misses the ball. Gets hit in front of the middle stump and the umpire raises his finger immediately after Morris' appeal!
...
Harbhajan Singh walks to the crease. MI need three boundaries here.
...
It was almost a run-out at both ends and in the end Rohit Sharma has to go. The captain goes for 65 and 13 needed off the last three balls.
...
19.3 Morris to Rohit Sharma, 2 runs, what has happened here? Is Rohit out? Wide yorker, outside off, drilled towards deep cover, and they sprint back for the second. The throw comes in, Morris fails to collect the ball and whips the bails off only with his hands and not with the ball. Meanwhile, there was a collision between Rohit and Pandya midway on the pitch and Rohit gets hurt an goes down on the ground! Morris then picks up the ball and throws it to de Kock who whips off the bails and while the third umpire waits to see who is out, a disappointed Rohit walks off angry.
...
Will that be the first of many? That is the first six Chris Morris has conceded in the IPL. 14 needed off the last four balls.
...
19.2 Morris to Rohit Sharma, SIX! Misses the yorker by a whisker, and Rohit launches it over long on for a massive six! Need a few more like this!
...
19.1 Morris to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, low full toss, smashed to long off but only for a single!
...
21 needed off the last over and the captain leads from the front. Look at how animated Rahul Dravid is after that dismissal, which shows just how this means to him. Chris Morris will bowl the last over and Hardik Pandya is on strike.
...
18.6 Zaheer to Kieron Pollard, OUT! That was a slower ball, anmd slightly short, Pollard tries to hit it over th eleg side again, and gets an outside edge towards deep cover where Morris gulps the ball down! Big wicket!
...
That was an error ball as Zak went for the yorker. 21 needed off the last seven balls. Crucial last ball coming up.
...
18.5 Zaheer to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Low full toss, missed his yorker only by an inch, but that was enough for Pollard to launch it over deep midwicket for a huge six! What power!
...
18.4 Zaheer to Rohit Sharma, 1 run, yorker again, Rohit hits that towards long on, but only for a single.
...
That was back-to-back yorkers. That almost took off the batsman's toes. Wonderful bowling from the DD captain.
...
18.3 Zaheer to Rohit Sharma, no run, a yorker between the legs of Rohit who was making room outside leg stump to hit over the off side!
...
18.2 Zaheer to Kieron Pollard, 1 run, yorker on middle stump, Pollard could do nothing about it. Just squeezes it to short midwicket.
...
18.2 Zaheer to Kieron Pollard, WIDE! Down the leg side!
...
Should he have gone for the catch? How costly will that decision to not go for the catch be? Or was keeping Rohit Sharma off strike turn out to be a brilliant move? The answer will be revealed in the next 10 minutes
