19.5 - Comment! Delhi Capitals won by 5 wickets.
19.5 - Comment! MS Dhoni: The wicket behaved slightly better in the second innings, it came on slightly better which made it slightly easy for the batsmen. But overall, we can not really take the credit away from Shikhar, he batted really well and was supported really well by the other batters. I feel this game will give him a lot of confidence when it comes to executing outside off yorkers, I feel that will be one delivery that is slightly difficult to hit.Bravo was not fit, he went out and was really not able to come back. That was the reason we had to bowl. The option was between Karn and Jaddu so I went ahead with Jaddu. Maybe not enough. Shikhar's wicket was important, we did drop him quite a few times. He is somebody if he is batting, he will keep ticking the scoreboard. He will keep taking his chances. If he is there on the crease, he will always maintain a good strike rate. I felt his wicket was crucial. Also there was difference between the first and second innings. There was just enough dew, there was not a lot of dew, just enough to make it slightly better and that creates a difference between the first and the second innings.
19.5 - Comment! Shreyas Iyer: We have been gelling well as a team from the first day of our camp. We know the strengths and weaknesses of each other. We have embraced each other's success and failure in the same way. I just told one of the teammates today that today the way he batted, it was really mesmerizing to see. Also gives me some breathing space as captain. I was very nervous, did not know what to say because it was getting to the last over. I knew that if Shikhar stays till the end, we will win. But the way Axar struck the ball was amazing to see. Whenever we give the Man of the Match awards in our dressing room, he is always there. He is an unsung hero. His preparation is always on point and he knows what he is doing.
19.5 - Comment! Man of the match - S Dhawan (Delhi Capitals):- Runs:101 - Balls:58 - 4s:14 - 6s:1 - S/R:174.13.
19.5 - Comment! Shikhar Dhawan: Of course, I do have a few strategies according to pitch. I feel I have courage. It (fitness) is very important. Luckily, I was able to work a lot on my routine due to this long break we had due to Corona. It is very special (first IPL ton). Playing for 13 years, so very special. Really happy. At the start of the tournament, I was hitting the ball but I was not converting the 20s or 30s into fifties. Once you start doing that, you get more confidence. I just want to continue the same form and make the most of it. I keep my mindset positive, I do not think a lot.
19.5 - Comment! That is it for this match. Hope you all had enjoyed our live coverage. Join us tomorrow for more cricketing action. Bye for now and God bless you all.
