Commentary

A dramatic collapse. They've lost seven wickets for 12 runs in 17 balls to throw it away, and squander an excellent opportunity to reach the top of the table. Bhatia's over did the trick, and held his cool superbly in the end to return excellent figures of 4 for 15. Ultimately, given the margin of victory, it's going to go down to those dropped catches and that fateful over from Vaas at the death that made all the difference. Delhi, for all purposes, are now safely through to the semis. Stay tuned, we'll get you the details from the presentation.

Gilchrist: "We just handed the victory away with just bat and ball. You can't drop catches like that. We committed cricket suicide. The standard of catching in this tournament hasn't been high, and it was disappointing to release those two points today. We need to keep working hard, we're still in the mix."

Sehwag: "I was pretty happy with the total, but Gilchrist and Symonds played very well. Sangwan bowled really well, and Bhatia did well at the end, bowling the yorkers and the slower ones. We have a motivation that if we win, we get US$50,000 from our franchises. That's always a nice motivation to have." Wow.

Bhatia is the Man of the Match

Bhatia: "It was just bowling the yorkers and the slower ones, and bowling according to the situation. We have to be calm, and that's where the mind works. It's all about mind games."

That's all we have from here folks. Hope you enjoyed the game, and do tune in again tomorrow, which is a double-header. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us at Cricinfo.

Bhatia to Shoaib Ahmed, OUT, he's holed out in the deep, can't really blame him, low full toss on middle, struck down AB de Villiers' throat at long-on

Maqsusi the last man. Can he make amends for his expensive over?

With 13 needed off 4, you don't look to work one away, what was he doing?
