Pant says, "It's a pleasure playing for DD as everyone is supporting a youngster like me. Great experience for me because in the U-19 World Cup, Rahul sir was our coach. It was good to bat with Quinton de Kock, as the wicket was nice and the ball was coming nicely."
...
RISHABH PANT has been adjudged as the MAN OF THE MATCH for his match-winning innings of 69 off just 40!
...
"The effort on the field needs to be applauded. The way the guys ran on the field and gave it everything needs to appealed. It is about being focused, expressing oneself on the field and playing to your strengths. Pant was amazing and special. Someone like Quinton batting with him has helped him a lot. We have seen the form Quinton has been in the tournament and has helped Pant a lot," says Zaheer Khan.

Delhi have jumped up to number 2, Gujarat still number one in the standings.

Suresh Raina: "Disappointing to lose, we did not post enough runs, DD had a good partnership in the powerplays, we need to play well now from here on. Bravo was missed more in the bowling, we have few games way and we have done well away from home. Thanks to the Gujarat crowd. It is a learning curve for us, no need for panic button yet."

17.2 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, SIX! DD WIN by 8 wickets! That is all for the night folks, deposits it over deep square leg, non pulling that one back. In the slot, Samson sinks to one knee, and then launches it over square leg, thumping short, thumping win, all was so easy in the end.
...
17.1 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, 2 runs, brilliant BAZ at deep mid-wicket. Well, McCullum has made his presence felt in the field now. The ball was launched over deep midwicket and had almost sailed over the ropes, but McCullum had other ideas! He jumped in the air, took a one-handed blinder at the ropes, while both his feet were in the air, realized that he was falling over, and threw the ball inside the fence just before he jumped out. What an effort!
...
Jadeja to bowl!
...
12 runs coming from Kaushik's last over, as Gujarat's debacle continues. Just 8 runs needed now from the last three overs.
...
16.6 Shivil Kaushik to JP Duminy, 2 runs, on the pads, clipped to mid-wicket for an easy brace.
...
16.5 Shivil Kaushik to Sanju Samson, 1 run, on off, driven up and over to deep point.
...
16.4 Shivil Kaushik to Sanju Samson, no run, on off, dabbed to short third man.
...
16.3 Shivil Kaushik to JP Duminy, 1 run, driven to long on.
...
16.2 Shivil Kaushik to JP Duminy, FOUR, full ball on off, JP lifts it over short cover, the ball zipped past to the boundary. What timing and placement by Duminy. He is showing his class here.
...
16.1 Shivil Kaushik to JP Duminy, FOUR, JP reverse paddles it fine. The reverse paddle was expertly placed and it beat the man at third man for a boundary.The Delhi batsmen are now playing innocuous shots, and even those shots are going for boundaries. This chase has been mastered by the Delhi batsmen.
...
9 off that over from Jadeja! Kaushik to continue.
...
15.6 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, no run, on a length, dabbed to short mid-wicket.
...
15.5 Jadeja to JP Duminy, 1 run, on a length, spinning in, Duminy dabs it to long on.
...
15.4 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, 1 run, bunted to short cover for a quick single.
...
15.3 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, FOUR, full ball and smacked it straight past the bowler for boundary. That is like rubbing salt against Jadeja's wounds. Nothing going right for the Lions.
...
Well, that was beautifully bowled, but alas, it was a no-ball. He had beaten Samson's outside edge and also had him stumped as Samson was beaten by the turn, but that's all meaningless now. A FREE HIT coming up!
...
15.3 Jadeja to Sanju Samson, no run, STUMPING APPEAL! Oh dear Jaddu has over-stepped it seems. Nothing is behind the line. Yes it is a NO BALL. Who cares for a stumping then.
