all over, dispatches a full delivery over mid-off for a boundary to seal a convincing win
Davids ends the game in style; 125 was a par score but the Cobras chased it down with ease. Unlike Victoria, who had a poor start with the bat, the Cobras seized the momentum in the chase courtesy Brand's quickfire 29. Davids then took over, making 69, with some moments of luck, and Duminy supported him well with a steady 18 in an unbeaten 88-run stand. Bangalore have now been knocked out, and the upcoming game, for them, is a dead rubber. An important one for Delhi though. We'll get you the presentation details in a bit.
Davids is the Man of the Match: "I just told myself that it was good to hit it across the line over midwicket than going for it straight. Brand gave us a good start, and those two Victoria wickets early on helped."
White: "A pretty good wicket with the new ball, but we had a poor first couple of overs. We did well to keep the run-rate down in the end. Delhi have to win their next two games to push us out, and win well too, so we'll see how that goes."
Puttick: "Proud of the guys, we were very professional in the chase. Brand's innings worked very well for us. We never let them going in the middle overs. We are improving and gaining confidence with every game. We've got another game coming up against Delhi, and we are prepared for that."
That's all from here folks. The two teams came into this phase of the tournament with two points; Cobras have boosted their semi-finals chances, and even though Victoria have lost, their net run-rate is very healthy. They are more or less through. Thanks for tuning in. Until the next time, it's goodbye from all of us at Cricinfo.
