...
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.
