6.55 pm Kings XI have been smashed. By nine wickets and 37 balls to spare. They remain entrenched at the bottom of the league with six defeats in eight games. Daredevils, on the other hand, have jumped from sixth to fourth place, a point clear of RCB. They have eight points but have played the extra game.

Sahaj: "Faizan missed his prediction by one ball and one wicket." Top effort it was.

The IPL bids farewell to Delhi tonight, the Daredevils remaining home games will be in Raipur.

George Bailey: "I'm not sure what to say. It felt like when we were batting it was a difficult surface, when they were batting it looked like a good surface, so the answer is probably somewhere in the middle. Full credit to Delhi, they bowled well, JP captained well, put us on the back foot. We've just been trying to get the boys to free up a bit, play natural games. The big thing is not to let these performances define us, it doesn't mean you are not trying or training hard."

Aaron: "how can Bailey STILL be smiling after that performance?!" Hey, it's only a game, right?

JP Duminy: "Definitely good to win going into the second half, we have been inconsistent, we want to correct that and it's a good start today. We always knew if we can get the lefthnders in I would come into play ... things are going well with bat and ball. Long way to go and big performances are needed. Unbelievable, isn't it? (Zaheer's comeback). His experience. So great to have Zaheer back."

The Man of the Match is Nathan Coulter-Nile, who took 4 for 20 in four overs.

Coulter-Nile: "It was a little bit up and down early on but the dew came in and made it easier for us. Makes a big difference, having him [Zaheer] out there, talking to the guys. I thought we were good enough from the start, we just need to keep winning and scrape into that top four."

We've come to an end of our ball-by-ball coverage of this game, but in 20 minutes the toss will take place in Mumbai, where they are taking on Rajasthan Royals. So hop on over to that scorecard. Thank you for all your emails this evening, cheers.
