Shikhar Dhawan is given the Man of the Match award for his fluent knock. That's all from this game but don't go too far away as the second match of the evening between Kolkata and Mumbai will begin shortly. See you there. Cheers!
Earlier in the evening, Delhi opted to bat and started strongly on the back of valuable partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer. Just like Bangalore, they also lost the plot in the middle phase but then Axar Patel and Sherfane Rutherford hammered a 46-run stand off just 19 balls to push the total past the 180-run mark. Their partnership in a way proved to be the differential factor. Amit Mishra, Axar Patel and Kagiso Rabada were right on the money with the ball and played a vital role in defending the total. Delhi's fielding was a bit sloppy initially but then they pulled up their socks and caught a few brilliant catches. All in all, a great win for them and they will be immensely pleased with the outcome.
Delhi are in the playoffs for the first time since 2012! An incredible win for them and they have pushed Bangalore on the brink of elimination. The touring team started their run chase in a brisk manner and were in a dominating position after the Powerplay. But Delhi bounced back after that to remove both the openers. AB de Villiers and Shivam Dubey got together for a partnership but once the former was dismissed, the home team pressed home the advantage. Gurkeerat and Stoinis tried their best but the required rate was too high and eventually, they failed to overhaul the target. For those who are eager to know, Bangalore are not yet out of the tournament and still have a mathematical chance of making it through, of course depending on other results.
19.7KRabada to MStoinis
In the air... safe! The fielder seemed to have not gone for the catch there. A full toss on the stumps, Stoinis hits it towards long on. Tewatia, the sub, runs in but then takes a few steps back. Collects it on the bounce. Just a single. DELHI WIN BY 16 RUNS!
19.6KRabada to MStoinis
A dot now! Bends his back on this one and bowls it short. Stoinis looks to muscle it over the bowler's head but misses.
19.5KRabada to MStoinis
SIX! That has been nailed! Short and on the body, Stoinis picks it, waits for it and then sends it sailing into the mid-wicket stands.
19.4KRabada to MStoinis
Slightly shorter and on middle, Stoinis looks to pull but it goes off the inner half towards the keeper.
Umesh Yadav is the new batsman in.
19.3KRabada to WSundar
OUT! Sundar holes out! Rabada gets another. The slower one on the fuller side, WS looks to clear the long on fence. Gets more height than distance and Iyer there takes it.
19.2KRabada to MStoinis
Short and on off, Stoinis pulls it all along the ground towards mid-wicket for a run.
19.1KRabada to MStoinis
A false start! A slower one which comes out wrong and down the leg side. Stoinis looks to flick but misses.
18.6ISharma to MStoinis
Another single! Which means 26 needed from the last over. Slower one outside off, Stoinis mistimes it towards cover for a single. Excellent comeback over by Ishant. Just the 4 runs and a wicket from it.
18.5ISharma to WSundar
Short and on the body, Sundar looks to pull but it hits the higher part of the bat and rolls towards mid-wicket for a single.
Washington Sundar is the new batsman in.
18.4ISharma to SinghMann
OUT! That has stuck in the webbing. Delhi have taken some excellent catches today and this is probably the best of them. Ishant bowls this one full and outside off, Mann looks to go big but only manages an outside edge. The ball flies to the right of Pant who dives and sticks one hand out. The ball manages to stay in. The dangerous looking Mann is gone.
18.3ISharma to MStoinis
Just a single! Delhi have no problems with singles. Full and wide outside off, MS looks to go over the off side but only manages a bottom edge towards Pant. He fumbles and a run is taken.
18.2ISharma to MStoinis
Dot! Gold dust at this stage! This is outside off, Stoinis swings but misses.
18.1ISharma to SinghMann
Slower one and outside off, Mann looks to swing but it goes off the inner half towards deep mid-wicket for a run.
17.6KRabada to MStoinis
Play and a miss! Only 6 runs off the over, a top one by Kagiso after 16 coming off the last over. A length ball outside off, Stoinis pushes at it and misses.
17.5KRabada to MStoinis
Another terrific delivery. A near yorker around off, Marcus keeps it out through mid-wicket and scampers back for the second run.
17.4KRabada to SinghMann
Back of a length ball on off, a sharp delivery, Mann tries to heave across the line but it hurries into him and he ends up playing it aerially towards long on. The fielder collects it on one bounce and the batsmen switch ends.
17.3KRabada to MStoinis
A cracking delivery by Rabada. He spears it on middle and leg, Stoinis digs it out towards point for one.
17.2KRabada to SinghMann
Slower bouncer on middle, Mann top edges his pull shot down to fine leg and completes a single.
17.1KRabada to MStoinis
Starts with a length ball on off, Stoinis closes the face of his bat and works it behind square leg for a run.
Kagiso Rabada is back into the attack.
16.6ISharma to SinghMann
36 in 18 now as the last ball is a dot! Still an excellent over for visitors. This could probably be the momentum changing one. Mann once again looks to go over the leg side but this one is way outside off. He misses.
16.5ISharma to SinghMann
FOUR! Make that 16 with one ball to go. Bangalore are right back in this. A fortunate boundary but they won't care. This is outside off, Mann looks to hit it over the leg side but the ball hits the top edge and flies over short third man. 36 needed in 19.
16.4ISharma to SinghMann
SIX! FLAT! That has hit the ropes on the full. Poor ball though, it is on a length. Mann clears his front leg and then whips it through mid-wicket. It goes all the way. Mann now getting into his own. 12 from the over so far with two balls to go.
16.3ISharma to MStoinis
Very full on off, difficult for the batsman to get under it. This is stroked down to long off for a single.
16.2ISharma to SinghMann
On the leg side, Mann looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards the leg side. A leg bye is taken.
16.1ISharma to SinghMann
FOUR! This is what Mann needs to do! Boundaries are the call of the hour and he finds one. Shuffles in and then flicks it through square leg. No one in the deep and a boundary results.
Strategic break! Bangalore were 82/2 during the last break and now they are reeling on 136/5. The chase has completely fallen flat on its face for the visiting team. All the top guns are back in the hut and Delhi certainly have the upper hand. The required rate has touched 13 now and Bangalore need something extraordinary from hereon to achieve the target and stay alive in the tournament.
15.6SLamichhane to SinghMann
Mann is happy taking the singles. The googly and Mann goes back and works it through mid-wicket for a run. 10 from this over.
15.5SLamichhane to MStoinis
The googly and on middle, Stoinis goes back and pulls it through square leg for another single.
15.4SLamichhane to SinghMann
The googly and Mann does not pick it, he looks to cut but the ball turns in. At the very end, he guides it towards short third man for a run.
15.3SLamichhane to MStoinis
This is flatter and on middle, Stoinis pushes it down to long on for a single.
15.2SLamichhane to MStoinis
SIX! That is huge! As easy as you like. A little too full by Sandeep and he pays the price. Stoinis lofts it over the bowler's head and it goes a long way into the stands.
15.1SLamichhane to MStoinis
The leg spinner on off, Stoinis pushes it back towards the bowler.
Sandeep Lamichhane is back into the attack.
14.7AMishra to MStoinis
Flatter and on off, this is pushed down to long off for a run. 11 from the over but it is below the required rate.
14.6AMishra to MStoinis
Now a couple! Runs starting to come now. Short and outside off, Stoinis goes back and cuts it through point for a couple.
14.5AMishra to MStoinis
FOUR! Need a lot of these. A very good shot this. It is tossed up on off, Stoinis leans into it and strokes it over the bowler's head for a boundary.
14.4AMishra to SinghMann
Another single as this is stroked through covers. Not sure why the two are not stepping on the accelerator. They need to get going.
14.3AMishra to SinghMann
What was that? The googly outside off, this one turns back in sharply and also there is extra bounce. Mann looks to hit it through the off side but due to the inward spin, he is hit on the gloves.
14.2AMishra to SinghMann
A better throw and it would have been close! Mann drives it square on the off side. They take one and go for the second. The fielder throws it a little wide to the keeper who looks to deflect it onto the stumps but misses.
