An unbeaten half-century from Nitish Rana helped Delhi overcome a poor start and pull off a five-wicket win over Jharkhand at the Bandra Kurla Complex. Rana walked in with Delhi 14 for 3 chasing 135, and remained unbeaten on 60 off 44 balls (9x4, 1x6) after seeing them through with two overs to spare. He added 64 for the fourth wicket with Dhruv Shorey (30) and an unbroken 40 for the sixth wicket with Pawan Negi (24 not out). Varun Aaron, who struck twice in the third over of Delhi's innings, finished with figures of 3 for 27 from his four overs.

Sent in to bat, Jharkhand lost wickets at regular intervals, with Virat Singh (45) and Ishank Jaggi (42 off 29, 6x4) putting on the only significant stand of their innings, 62 for the fourth wicket. The highest score either side of that was Kumar Deobrat's 13, as Delhi's bowlers, led by Parvinder Awana's 3 for 28, kept them down to a score of 134 for 7.
