Commentary

Daredevils take it close but still can't snap their streak - they will look back on the lack of acceleration towards the end of their batting, and the large number of extras.

Pietersen: "Incredibly tough to get over that one, our strength has been our batting in the last five-six, but ... it just wasn't meant to be. Hopefully, we can finish well, today was a team effort."

How good was Akshar Patel's innings? Keeping his cool even as the match got tight, after the M&M show ended early.

apoorvagj: "Peitersen doesn't know Manan Vohra? Are you kidding me!!! What is means is that there was no strategy discussed against Vohra last night. "

Presentation ceremony:

George Bailey: explains the decision to demote himself, says he wanted to keep the left-right combination going, especially as there was a short boundary on one side. "I thought they got a better start than they should have, they were probably under par but only just."

Man of the Match is Akshar Patel: "If you want to play cricket for a long time, you have to perform in the pressure situations. I have told the captain that I don't mind bowling at any stage of the innings, I want to prove myself here."

Right, that's a wrap from me. Our video show 'The Huddle' will start soon. Stick around for that. Thanks for the mails today, will Daredevils ever win?

Parnell to Dhawan, FOUR runs, it's all over, Kings XI win another, making absolutely certain of their place in the playoffs, Delhi sink to their seventh straight loss, the result was confirmed with a powerful pull towards deep midwicket for four, it was tight, but once again Kings XI pull through

Parnell to Dhawan, 2 runs, great running from Aksar Patel there, that full toss was drilled past the bowler, didn't look like there would be time for two, but Patel was nearly lapping Dhawan there, so quick was he off the blocks

Parnell to Dhawan, 2 runs, short ball, Dhawan doesn't know much about that one, a top edge towards square leg, Tahir has plenty of ground to cover, so the batsmen can hare back for the second, in time to beat the throw

Eight off five now.

Aalhad Kulkarni: "So in a sense, Kumar Dharmasena should be the Man Of the Match if KXIP win :P"
