11.52pm That's it for tonight, folks. Another double-header tomorrow and we will, of course, bring that one to you as well. Make to join us for both of them. Good night.

Mayank Gupta: "Not having so many big names in their squad actually makes it easier for Delhi Daredevils to maintain the balance their final playing XI needs. They have serious talent in squad which can be displayed easily on ground without worrying about someone sitting out."

Anderson: It was the kind of wicket where it was tough to get going. Sanju and Sam set a great platform. It was good to have that platform to go from. We thought 160 might have been a reasonable target during one of the time-outs and in the end it probably was. As a bowler, you have to read the game. Zaheer sets some interesting fields and he's a smart cricketer. It's a nice confidence to have. It was a clinical performance from the bowlers. It's valuable to be able to chop and change combinations. Finding the right people to do the job is key.

Corey Anderson is the Man of the Match.

Zaheer: We just did the basics right. Got a decent start. we didn't lose wickets regularly. The pitch was slow and we executed the plans well. It was important that we accelerate at the right time and the start was good from Samson and Billings. We have good batsmen to hit in the end and the platform needs to be good, which it was today. The way Nadeem bowled was crucial. It was important not to give away runs. I bowled a lot of cutters too. Happy with the way things are going. So far so good.

Maxwell: We were a bit behind with the bat. We probably gave 30 too many in conceding 188. We let ourselves go and gave them too many boundary balls at the back end. We're not executing well enough with the ball. We failed in all three facets of the game today. Axar continues to show he's a superstar and Cariappa did well too.

11.37pm Delhi's bowling delivers yet another comprehensive win. Their pacers have taken 18 wickets in three matches - most by pacers from any team this season - at an average of 16.11. Their average is 11 runs fewer than the next best team.
It's two in a row now, and a team that is looking very very confident. This is their fourth biggest win after batting first too. Zaheer will be a very happy captain. Everybody in his team has done his bit.
Punjab have even more questions to ask of themselves than they did when coming into the game. The bowling attack seems to be flailing about in discomfort at the moment and their two left-handed foreign batsmen looked really scratchy. That team balance has been rocked in the last two games.

W
Morris to Patel, OUT, slower ball on a good length. Axar clears his front leg, slogs, and misses. The ball hits leg stump and Morris finishes with three wickets

Smart move from Axar? A big hit to finish could mean a tiny bit of improvement in Kings XI's net run rate.
