That's all from us. Thanks for joining, see you tomorrow

Prithvi Shaw is the player of the match: I thought I missed an opportunity to finish the game rather than the one run I needed for a hundred, that I was disappointed about. I think the pitch changed, the footmarks were opening, the slower ones were working well, there was turn on offer so we were looking to work the ball into gaps"

Shreyas Iyer: "Definitely a long day in the office, should have finished it off earlier with the bat, but Kuldeep bowled well. You can't control things when Andre Russell gets going. One team needs a player like him, even mishits go for sixes, tough to plan against him. I hope Prithvi Shaw can keep doing this for us, he is very talented. Before the super over Rabada said he is only going to bowl yorkers, he missed the first but nailed the rest"

Rabada: "We weren't sure who was going to bowl, then Hopes told me it was going to be me. I guess you have to keep your wits about you and be clear about what you want to bowl, what helped was that I was clear and backed my plan"

12.15am What a match this turned out to be, Delhi finally winning it a they should have earlier because of the position they were in. Shaw with his 99 earlier and Rabada with that Super Over later. KKR will be happy they took it to the Super Over but their bowling didn't look great today

almost in the block hole outside off, Uthappa digs it out towards point for a single

w
Rabada to Russell, OUT
bowled him, right in the block hole to uproot the middle stump. What. A. Delivery. Russell made room for that delivery, Rabada trusted his skills and went for the block hole again, that's as accurate as one can be. Middle stump uprooted
AD Russell b Rabada

Rabada to Russell, FOUR runs
aims for the block hole, it's a low full toss on the toes and Russell has flicked it away in the gap on the leg side, goes to deep midwicket for four

KKR have had two super overs before this and lost both

DC: 10/1CRR: 10 

12.10pm Looks like Rabada will bowl the over, Dre Russ is rotating his shoulders in the dugout, he will have Dinesh Karthik for company

12.07pm Andre Russell is padded up and is shadow practising. Kallis has a chat with him

That's just 10 scored by Delhi Capitals. Will it be enough if Andre Russell comes out? Who will bowl for Delhi? Let's see.

0.6
1
Prasidh Krishna to Pant, 1 run

11.58pm Rishabh Pant will take strike for Delhi with Iyer at the other end. Prasidh Krishna will bowl

11.50pm Such drama, what a turnaround, after that Shaw 99. This is a lot like the Pakistan v Australia ODI yesterday in which Pakistan were cruising in the chase after Abid Ali and Rizwan century, only that they lost in the end. Delhi haven't lost yet. At one point it looked like KKR had nothing up their sleeve to pull it back until Kuldeep came back for his second spell after his expensive first two overs

There are discussion going on in both dugouts, possibly discussing who will bat and bowl for the two teams

w
Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, 1 run, OUT
IT IS A SUPER OVER. Ingram went across a bit, Kuldeep pitched it on length just outside leg and Ingram swept it away, as Uthappa swooped in on the ball in the deep. Accurate throw, Ingram takes too much time to turn around for the second and he can't make it
CA Ingram run out (Uthappa/†Karthik) 10 (13m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Two needed off the last ball, one to tie and Super Over. DK sets the field. Ingram on strike since they crossed, shaw watching from the boundary rope

19.5
w
Kuldeep Yadav to Vihari, OUT
he has found the fielder in the deep, who else but Shubman Gill. What a match this has turned out to be all of a sudden. Short ball, pulled away and it went straight to deep midwicket off Vihari's bat
GH Vihari c Shubman Gill b Kuldeep Yadav 2 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, 1 run
some width outside off, chipped down the ground for one
19.3
Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, no run
this one turns away from Ingram and beats the outside edge. He brings his back leg back just in time
19.2
2
Kuldeep Yadav to Ingram, 2 runs
that was a run-out chance and Kuldeep has fluffed it! Ingram punched it through the covers and they came back for the second, the throw was accurate and reached Kuldeep with Vihari not there yet but he didn't collect the ball

Around the wicket to Ingram

Jeetesh Dhanara: "Is that the first 99 of IPL??" Kohli once got out for 99 too, Raina once scored 99*

Shaw is sitting with a dejected look just b beyond the boundary, his head hanging back, with his pads on

Ferguson to Shaw, OUT
oh he's gone for 99, would you believe it. Ferguson was bowling one short delivery after another, this one angling in towards Shaw's head, he pulls, gets a top edge and Dinesh Karthik goes back a few steps towards short third man and takes the skier. Shaw is utterly disappointed with that, he would have been the youngest centurion in IPL

Kuldeep Yadav to Shaw, 1 run
dropped by Kuldeep although that went very quickly to him. Low full toss to Shaw, he slammed it back and Kuldeep hardly had any time to react to go to his right. He'll keep strike

Russell is not looking in good shape here, but he's not bowling at the moment. Shaw on strike on 97

17.5

Kuldeep Yadav to Pant, OUT
he's found the fielder in the deep! He pitched that waayy outside leg, Pant went closer to it, slog-swept while taking one hand off but didn't get much distance and holed out to deep midwicket
