That ends our presentation for tonight. Thanks for joining us

Shreyas Iyer, also the Man of the Match: "It is rally difficult to defend here. Such an amazing total but still. It is always a thrill to come and play here. Winning the match is an icing on the cake. I thought today was the right time to take the bowlers on on a smaller ground. I took it one six at a time. I won't say I am a gifted player because I know the hard work and smart work I out into it. We keep talking about the close victories. This was one of them, and it is always satisfying. That after losing Mishra when he was bowling so well. We were confident we had two good overs left but you never know on this wicket at Sharjah. We have got a good platform, but we have to be insatiable from here on."

Dinesh Karthik: "The way the boys batted is something I am proud of. We kept fighting, which is the nature of this team. To be honest, a couple more sixes, and we would have crossed the line. So not much to fault the bowlers for. Perhaps 10 runs too many, but two more hits and we might have been through. We want to give Russell more time to make an impact on the game. We will discuss Narine's role with the coaches, but I have got full confidence in Narine."

DC at the top of the table after a smooth win against KKR. They batted to a plan before unleashing mayhem in the last five overs. Their two big fast bowlers gave them the start they needed. Russell batted in the middle, but failed. And then when Morgan and Tripathi made it interesting, Nortje came back to seal the deal
