Post-match presentation: Anil Kumble: "Maybe 160-165 we could have chased, the toss was crucial, but we should have made a better fist of the chase. Delhi played exceptionally well. One loss doesn't really matter, we have two home games coming up, we hope to pull it off there."

Gautam Gambhir: "They way Collingwood played set the game up for us. I said at the toss that anything above 170 will be difficult. Whoever comes in Delhi and plays has a tough time."

The Man of the Match is Paul Collingwood: "Yeah, I hit it pretty well, being in Bangladesh for five weeks probably helped. We have been fortunate enough to win three tosses, but you still have to put in a good performance and we have."

That's it from us today, do join us for tomorrow's game between Deccan and Rajasthan.
