That's all we have for you from commentary. Thank you for joining us, hope to see you for the first double-header this season tomorrow. Goodnight

Amit Mishra is Man of the Match in his 100th IPL game. "I think nothing much to say. Just trying to take wickets, I got success, really happy today. Wicket was on the slower side, little effort needed to spin the ball. I wanted [to bowl the fourth over] but I supported the captain. We worked hard on batting and bowling and fielding, and it came out very well on this game. We hope to do good work in later matches too"

"It was required. The win was required for us. Happy with the way we put our efforts on the field. It was a good toss to win," Zaheer Khan says, "The energy out there was fantastic. We want that young energy, you want to see that energy on the field and very happy with the way the boys threw themselves around. We kept taking wickets, Mishra was really good. We want to build momentum at the right time, let everyone express themselves freely. We are playing RCB in a couple of days, and this will will definitely help"

11.00 pm So an early night for us then. Delhi Daredevils' openers were a tad nervous at the start. They were 28 for 1 at the Powerplay, but with only 112 to chase, there was never any pressure on them. Quinton de Kock anchored the innings with a strokeful fifty - gets a pat on the back of his head from the opposition captain and his South Africa team-mate David Miller. Amit Mishra, though, was the match-winner tonight with his 4 for 11 from three overs.

"Exactly, not enough runs. Quick turnaround on Sunday, had a few chances on the field, the guys out their bodies on the line. Massive difference, momentum gets broken when you lose quick wickets. Have to look at the batting line-up," says Miller.

Aman: "Bizarre captaincy by Miller. Took off Sandeep Sharma after a wicket maiden and never bowled him again. Took off the seamers when they were doing well, brought on spinners who were by and large leaking runs, but kept them going. Lack of experience and nous showing?"

Sahu to Negi, SIX runs, in the slot for the slog sweep and Negi does not disappoint. Sends it soaring over the midwicket boundary to stamp Daredevils' dominance on this match

Sahu to de Kock, FOUR runs, goes against the spin, but he had reached the pitch of the ball and therefore doesn't have to worry about the risk. Lashes a flighted delivery over cover

Patel to Negi, 2 runs, on the pads and Negi plays a neat little leg glance to get off the mark

Pawan Negi's been pushed up the order again

Patel to Samson, OUT, he's missed a straight one. Samson hared down the pitch and looked to slap one down the ground. But Axar bowled it quicker and flatter, it sneaks below his bat and knocks the stumps
