Tomorrow, the Kings XI Punjab take on the Rising Pune Supergiants in a dead rubber, while the Mumbai Indians take on the Gujarat Lions in an extremely crucial game. We hope to have your company for that. Till then, it's goodbye and goodnight!
...
Nair: "I have no words to describe the feeling. I think it was my best IPL knock. I played a couple of seasons of IPL now and I am used to adjusting from the longer formats. I wasn't connecting it very well; happy that I did tonight but happier that the team won."
...
KARUN NAIR has been adjudged as the MAN OF THE MATCH!
...
Zaheer: "Amazing the boys fought out there - not only in batting but fielding too. Everyone wanted this win badly. We needed to win those crucial situations but we knew that we were going to hang in there till the end. This season has been about the young guys who have been amazing."
...
Warner: "Fielding was sloppy. If you miss the chances, you pay. We thought 150 was par and sure it held up but it's a hard ground to defend. Big boundaries and Karun Nair played an exceptional knock. We have another game coming up and we have to refresh."
...
The youngsters stepped up once again for the Daredevils tonight. Nair played a match-winning innings while Pant played a decent supporting role as well. Brathwaite fired for a few overs, but in the end, it was the Karnataka batsman, Nair, who guided the team home. With this win, Delhi have kept their hopes alive of qualifying for the playoffs. The horses for courses approach that Delhi have deployed so far, has worked and it looks like they will continue doing the same.
...
Karun Nair, REMEMBER THE NAME! What a magical innings. He kept his cool even after those last two overs that were brilliant from Mustafizur and Bhuvneshwar. He finishes unbeaten 83 off 59 with 3 sixes and 8 fours, which included the match-winning boundary.
...
19.6 Bhuvneshwar to Karun, 4 runs, DD WIN, Karun Nair take a bow. Coming back to the ball, it was a length ball angling in, Karun backs away and swats away and Warner dives and misses it. He slams the ground in disgust. Karun exults, DD have breathing space.
...
SUPER OVER, anyone? 2 need off 1!
...
19.5 Bhuvneshwar to Karun, FOUR, back of a length, Karun backs away and flat bats it over mid-off. Oh, Nair, you beauty! What a shot down the ground. Even Warner cannot stop it, who ran across from long on, and dived to stop that, but fails.
...
What death bowling by Bhuvneshwar! Just 5 off the first 4. 6 needed off the last 2!
...
19.4 Bhuvneshwar to Samson, 1 LEG BYE, full ball on the pads, Sanju can't get it away.
...
7 runs needed off 3 balls. What a game this is turning out to be!
...
19.3 Bhuvneshwar to Karun, 1 run, fast ball on off, extra bounce too, Karun backs away and then can get only his gloves onto it. That ball went only towards extra cover.
...
19.2 Bhuvneshwar to Samson, 1 run, yorker on the boot, squeezed it to fine leg. That was an excellent yorker on leg stump​. Sanju somehow got something behind it, and scampered for a run.
...
19.1 Bhuvneshwar to Samson, 2 runs, length ball angling in, hoicked away to square leg.
...
Can Bhuvneshwar defend it? He is about to bowl the last over!
...
Just 5 runs and a wicket in that over by Mustafizur. DD need 11 runs off the last over.
...
18.6 Mustafizur to Karun, 2 runs, full ball on middle stump, clipped to wide of long on for another brace.
...
18.5 Mustafizur to Karun, 2 runs, full ball on off, driven to long on. We go upstairs to check for the run-out​. Karun is in. Excellent cricket all around. Nair hits the ball towards long on and sprints back for the second, before a brilliant throw by Warner enables Ojha to take off the bails.
...
18.4 Mustafizur to Karun, no run, excellent ball outside off, inside the tram lines as Karun backs away but cannot reach the ball.
...
GAME ON? Is Mustafizur bowling a game-changing over?
...
18.3 Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, walks to a full ball on the pads and clips it uppishly to long on at Warner.
...
18.2 Mustafizur to Brathwaite, OUT, Fuller ball on off, Brathwaite cuts, the ball flies towards short third man where Sran takes an absolute blinder. It has been a day of the fielders, it seems. They have been taking blinders, affecting run-outs and spilling sitters. They are, in essence, shaping the game.
...
18.1 Mustafizur to Brathwaite, no run, length ball angling away from Brathwaite who misses with his waft.
...
Mustafizur to bowl the penultimate over.
...
...
12 runs from this over. The last two overs have given away the game to the Daredevils.
...
17.6 Bhuvneshwar to Brathwaite, 1 run, ball on the pads is clipped to square leg.
...
17.5 Bhuvneshwar to Brathwaite, FOUR, length ball angling in, Brathwaite swats, gets the inside edge​ past Ojha. Fortune favouring Brathwaite at the moment, who looks to cut a shortish ball, gets an under edge​ past the keeper towards fine leg for four.
...
17.4 Bhuvneshwar to Karun, 1 LEG BYE, fast length ball following Karun, who makes room to swing across the line but is hit on the pads.
...
17.3 Bhuvneshwar to Karun, no run,banged in ball sails over Karun who misses his bat.
...
17.2 Bhuvneshwar to Brathwaite, 1 LEG BYE, hit on the pads and they sprint across for a single. Karun was out had that kick from Bhuvi been on target.
...
17.2 Bhuvneshwar to Brathwaite, 1 WIDE, way outside off stump.
...
17.1 Bhuvneshwar to Brathwaite, FOUR, full ball on off, Brathwaite slashes it with that power and the ball screams across to the point boundary. Brathwaite comes into the act now. Full and wide outside off, and Brathwaite​ unleashes a ferocious cut shot past point for four. DD are sailing towards victory at the moment.
...
14 runs from that over. Was it the game-changer? Bhuvneshwar to bowl to 18th over.
...
16.6 Sran to Karun, SIX, slower ball outside off, Karun sits to one knee and crunches it over​ deep mid-wicket. Sweet sound! Nair is playing a gem here. Another slower one, only fuller this time, and Nair, after waiting for ages, heaves it over deep midwicket for another six. He is playing on 70 off just 51.
...
16.5 Sran to Brathwaite, 1 run, slower ball that jumps at Carlos, who plays it to point and takes off. He was out if the ball had hit the stumps.
...
16.4 Sran to Karun, 1 run, much fuller ball is drilled to long on.
...
16.3 Sran to Karun, SIX, short ball, Karun​ waits for it on the backfoot and unleashes a scathing pull over mid-wicket. Change of pace, short ball, it sat up, and Nair absolutely smoked it high and long over deep midwicket for a massive six. He is proving out to be a match-winner here. Can he take them through?
...
16.2 Sran to Karun, no run, full and wide, Karun cannot reach it. Ojha and Sran appeal too.
...
Brathwaite is the new batsman. Sran would be delighted with the wicket of Duminy.
...
16.1 Sran to Duminy, OUT, Slower ball, and full towards then stumps, Duminy walks down the track and looks to go downtown. He fails to clear the fence as he lobs the ball high up in the air. This time Warner gulps it at mid-off and slams the ball on the ground in anger.
...
...
15.6 Mustafizur to Duminy, 1 run, DROPPED, this time by Bhuvi at sweeper cover. Bhuvneshwar, who had affected a brilliant run-out, has spilled an easy catch. What has happened to the Sunrisers? First Warner, and now Bhuvi! Two excellent fielders have dropped two sitters.
...
15.5 Mustafizur to Karun, 1 run, fast and short, Karun can't his pull this time.
...
15.4 Mustafizur to Karun, FOUR, now the scoop is played to perfection as Karun walks across to a slower ball and heaves it behind the stumps. Mustafizur was darting them short, and Nair, judiciously, walks across the stumps and scoops the ball over the head of Morgan at short fine leg for four.
...
15.4 Mustafizur to Karun, 1 WIDE, outside off.
