Kohli has given more than a hint that he ain't going to rest. We'll sign off from this game with some pleasant news for Indian tennis fans. After defeating former US Open champion Sam Stosur, India's Ankita Raina is now targeting a spot at the Tokyo Olympics.

Virat Kohli: It was an important toss, but even after losing it, the way we bowled was nice. Showed character but the game got away, 185 on that pitch with three spinners in their ranks was going to be tough. We were thinking 160-165, we had a chance. In crunch moments, Delhi played better than us. With the bat, we started very well. PP was outstanding, I got off to a start but me and AB getting out to balls you don't get out to changed it. We can only focus on having fun, that's what we decided to do and has helped us win four out of the last six games. We don't want to take too much pressure. The fun factor should never go away, we still got two games and we'll work hard. We'll go out there, expressive cricket and be positive. When we're done with the two games, we'll sit down and see where this tournament goes.

Delhi Capitals beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 16 runs. Great team performance by the Capitals. They make the playoffs for the first time since 2012. RCB can still mathematically make it but they need a lot of luck now and it seems very unlikely.

How good was Rabada tonight? 36 off 18 is very much in the realms of possibility in a modern-day T20 chase. To deliver two tight overs and give nothing away to close out the game, absolute masterclass. For Ishant to come back the way he did after bowling a poor 17th over was equally commendable.

Shreyas Iyer has been superb as captain. The least experienced in the field of eight, but has he got it all right at different times?

Rabada to Washington Sundar, OUT, caught at long on! The slower ball does it. He camped back and tried to launch a slower ball over long on, got under it and Iyer stood well inside the rope and took the simple catch

Navjot S Bhatia: "While we have seen players dropping dollies in the field this season.. DC have held on to some of the difficult catches today : 2 for Patel , Dhawan and that last one by Pant was brilliant." Rabada around the wicket
