END OF OVER:
1 | KKR: 7/1

That's all from us. Thanks for joining, see you tomorrow

Prithvi Shaw is the player of the match: I thought I missed an opportunity to finish the game rather than the one run I needed for a hundred, that I was disappointed about. I think the pitch changed, the footmarks were opening, the slower ones were working well, there was turn on offer so we were looking to work the ball into gaps"

Shreyas Iyer: "Definitely a long day in the office, should have finished it off earlier with the bat, but Kuldeep bowled well. You can't control things when Andre Russell gets going. One team needs a player like him, even mishits go for sixes, tough to plan against him. I hope Prithvi Shaw can keep doing this for us, he is very talented. Before the super over Rabada said he is only going to bowl yorkers, he missed the first but nailed the rest"

Rabada: "We weren't sure who was going to bowl, then Hopes told me it was going to be me. I guess you have to keep your wits about you and be clear about what you want to bowl, what helped was that I was clear and backed my plan"

12.15am What a match this turned out to be, Delhi finally winning it a they should have earlier because of the position they were in. Shaw with his 99 earlier and Rabada with that Super Over later. KKR will be happy they took it to the Super Over but their bowling didn't look great today

Rabada to Uthappa, 1 run, full toss punched to mid-off and Rabada roars because Delhi have sealed this Super Over
0.5

Rabada to Karthik, 1 run, he goes across and paddles the low full toss fine, fine leg is fine enough to run to his right and keep it to one
0.4

Rabada to Uthappa, 1 run, almost in the block hole outside off, Uthappa digs it out towards point for a single
0.3
W
Rabada to Russell, OUT, bowled him, right in the block hole to uproot the middle stump. What. A. Delivery. Russell made room for that delivery, Rabada trusted his skills and went for the block hole again, that's as accurate as one can be. Middle stump uprooted

AD Russell b Rabada

0.2

Rabada to Russell, no run, gets the block hole this time, no way Russell can smash that away, no time for a run either

Seven required off five now

0.1

Rabada to Russell, FOUR runs, aims for the block hole, it's a low full toss on the toes and Russell has flicked it away in the gap on the leg side, goes to deep midwicket for four

KKR have had two super overs before this and lost both

END OF OVER:
1 | DC: 10/1

12.10pm Looks like Rabada will bowl the over, Dre Russ is rotating his shoulders in the dugout, he will have Dinesh Karthik for company

12.07pm Andre Russell is padded up and is shadow practising. Kallis has a chat with him

That's just 10 scored by Delhi Capitals. Will it be enough if Andre Russell comes out? Who will bowl for Delhi? Let's see.

0.6

Prasidh Krishna to Pant, 1 run, he tries a reverse hit on the last ball which is wide outside off, he gets only an edge that is collected after a bounce by the keeper. They manage only a single

Prasidh Krishna to Pant, 2 runs, slow and short of length outside off, Pant waits and pulls to leg, they come back for the second again as the throw isn't accurate enough

Prasidh Krishna to Pant, 2 runs, he makes room, Krishna pitches it wide outside off and Pant lofts it over the covers before Chawla cuts it off running to his right from long-off

Prithvi Shaw the next batsman

Prasidh Krishna to Iyer, OUT, that's one down, Iyer has handed a skier to Piyush Chawla. It was on length outside off, Iyer sent it high down the ground and Chawla ran in from mid-off to take that

Prasidh Krishna to Iyer, FOUR runs, he goes across for the short ball just outside off, Iyer does well to swivel his bat and send it fine of short fine leg for four

Fine leg in the circle for Iyer

Prasidh Krishna to Pant, 1 run, short of length outside leg, Pant pulls to deep square leg for one

END OF OVER:
20 | DC: 185/6 (1 run required, RR: 9.25)

11.58pm Rishabh Pant will take strike for Delhi with Iyer at the other end. Prasidh Krishna will bowl

11.50pm Such drama, what a turnaround, after that Shaw 99. This is a lot like the Pakistan v Australia ODI yesterday in which Pakistan were cruising in the chase after Abid Ali and Rizwan century, only that they lost in the end. Delhi haven't lost yet. At one point it looked like KKR had nothing up their sleeve to pull it back until Kuldeep came back for his second spell after his expensive first two overs

There are discussion going on in both dugouts, possibly discussing who will bat and bowl for the two teams

W
Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, 1 run, OUT, IT IS A SUPER OVER. Ingram went across a bit, Kuldeep pitched it on length just outside leg and Ingram swept it away, as Uthappa swooped in on the ball in the deep. Accurate throw, Ingram takes too much time to turn around for the second and he can't make it

CA Ingram run out (Uthappa/†Karthik) 10 (13m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Two needed off the last ball, one to tie and Super Over. DK sets the field. Ingram on strike since they crossed, shaw watching from the boundary rope

19.5
W
Kuldeep Yadav to Vihari, OUT, he has found the fielder in the deep, who else but Shubman Gill. What a match this has turned out to be all of a sudden. Short ball, pulled away and it went straight to deep midwicket off Vihari's bat

GH Vihari c Shubman Gill b Kuldeep Yadav 2 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, no run, this one turns away from Ingram and beats the outside edge. He brings his back leg back just in time

Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, 2 runs, that was a run-out chance and Kuldeep has fluffed it! Ingram punched it through the covers and they came back for the second, the throw was accurate and reached Kuldeep with Vihari not there yet but he didn't collect the ball

Around the wicket to Ingram

Jeetesh Dhanara: "Is that the first 99 of IPL??" Kohli once got out for 99 too, Raina once scored 99*

Kuldeep Yadav to Vihari, 1 run, flat and quick towards off, worked to leg for one

Shaw is sitting with a dejected look just b beyond the boundary, his head hanging back, with his pads on
