Commentary

Delhi have won it comfortably in the end, thanks mainly due to the one man, Dave Warner, who spanked a 44-ball 79 on a difficult pitch. Barring him, none of the other Delhi batsmen looked comfortable at the crease chasing what I think was definitely a par score.

Harris bowled well, Mahmood got a couple but it was the Indian pair of Awana and Praveen Kumar who failed to hold their end up. Delhi will end at the top of the points table and play the Qualifier 1, Punjab is out of the tournament, Mumbai Indians are through and Chennai manage to hold on to their slim hopes. It is now between Chennai and Bangalore for that fourth spot.

Presentation

MJ: Good end to the league stage, couple of good buys, will start all over again in the playoffs but will look to take the confidence ahead. I don't remember when I led five fast bowlers, 160 would definitely be a competitive score.

Gilchrist: It was a much better pitch, 160 would have been the ideal total. The team fought really well, pleasure to lead the side, suspect this might be the end of the road for me in the IPL but let's see how it goes.

Yadav, man of the match: Not a matter of habit, but good to bowl like this, good track, lot of help on this pitch, swing and bounce is a dream for a fast bowler and this was it. The feeling is always good to get such pitches after bowling on slow and low tracks!
