The next stop for us is the battle for supremacy - Chennai vs Hyderabad. What a blockbuster game first up on Sunday. With this being an evening game, will it be a bit of advantage to HYD? Pitches tend to play a little slower in the first half and Williamson and Co. are masters at bowling on sluggish surfaces. It all depends on the amount of grass cover on the 22 yards though. We'll be up nice and early for the build up, do join us. For the moment, goodnight!

So that's curtains then on DEL's progress in the tournament. You got to feel for them. They were very exciting to watch post the change in captaincy, but a lot of damage was already done at the start. Meanwhile BLR have got a good game under the belt, barring the bowling at the death. Kohli and AB have come good in the same game and we heard Kohli say they love chasing. The test for them though would be to chase challenging scores on pitches that are slightly tougher for batting. They next play Punjab at Indore and the batsmen will be waiting to jump onto the plane to Indore, because that is one lovely road out there at the Holkar stadium. The bowlers will have to limit the damage though. We'll talk more about this on Monday.

AB de Villiers (Man of the Match): "To be honest with you it felt a bit weird tonight. Luckily Mishy bowled me one full ball out there and luckily I got it away and that kick started my innings. I started off slowly, luckily Virat was going well at the other end. Started feeling much better after 10-15 balls. It's admirable to see youngsters come here and perform well (talking about Lamichhane), very happy to be a part of a tournament like this. We play for a proud franchise, the management and my team-mates and that is what motivates me."

Virat Kohli: "The table is wide open. It is the right time to get a win for us. It was a great feeling playing in front of a big crowd. Surprising to see so much support for us in Delhi. Again not a clinical show with the ball. We should have restricted them to maximum 160, but they played really well. At this stage of the tournament, maybe we will prefer bowling first because the batsmen can take more responsibility and chase down every total. We understand teams don't want to let us win now. Ask the opposition team to get the runs and tell them we are coming after it. That's what works for our team and it really motivates us. I wasn't happy with the way we finished with the ball, but AB told me in the innings break that we can do this and that is what helped me get into the zone and then I let my instincts take over. It's an honour for me to bat with AB. We were looking to finish it with a few more overs to spare to help the net run rate, but the two points are very important."

Mandeep: I guess we required that victory and very happy that we won the game. We haven't been able to finish some close games, and had we won those it would have been a different scenario. They (VK & AB) made it look so easy. When I went in, the wicket was a bit slow and low, but they really made it look easy with the way they played their shots. Virat's shot (six) over covers was the best shot IMO. Feeling really good. We are really excited about the next few games. If we win keep winning then we are definitely in for the playoffs.

Shreyas Iyer: With the kind of start we got, getting to 180 I thought was more than enough. Unfortunately we weren't able to defend this as well; we aren't executing the plans we form in the dressing room. I don't feel the pressure of captaincy at all. Today was one of those bad days when I couldn't time the ball well at all. The only thing you can do to handle pressure is by scoring regularly. I have a few coaches and mentors whose inputs I take regularly. I wouldn't like to take their names, just in case I forget someone. We are already making 3-4 changes in every game and we are hoping to set up our team for the next season.

Look at the disappointment on Shreyas Iyer's face. Contrasting emotions in the other camp. They have ticked a big box this match - of Kohli and AB (two of their best batsmen) being involved in a big stand. It was always a case of one of them clicking this season, but tonight it all went to plan. Kohli took a lot of pressure off the rest of the batsmen by playing freely. BLR had lost a couple of wickets and the onus was on the famed duo. The captain counter-attacked and allowed AB to play himself in. Smashing 16 runs off Dala the next over after Parthiv's wicket was a momentum changer. After Kohli was dismissed, AB took the baton and took the side home. The dew didn't affect the outfield much. Delhi couldn't quite land the ball in the right areas to prise out wickets. Lamichhane was good to watch on his debut.

Sixth successive win for BLR against DEL at Kotla; 13th in last 14 completed games against DEL in T20 League

Boult to de Villiers, SIX, fitting finish from AB de Villiers. BLR are still alive and DEL have officially been knocked out. Slower delivery outside off stump, AB waits for the ball and lifts this over long-off
Boult to de Grandhomme, 1 run, driven to deep extra-cover. Scores level
Boult to de Grandhomme, no run, slower ball and de Grandhomme fails to connect
Boult to de Villiers, 1 run, full and on the stumps, de Villiers drives to long-on
Boult to de Villiers, SIX, Boult has actually bowled a full toss way outside off stump, but that big back and across movement of de Villiers helps him easily time this kind of sweep shot over backward square leg. He's just awesome to watch
Boult to de Grandhomme, 1 run, full ball outside off stump, de Grandhomme hits this on the bounce to long-off
Harshal Patel to de Grandhomme, 1 run, very full, de Grandhomme drills it to the left of the bowler, who deflects it to long-off
Harshal Patel to de Grandhomme, 3 wides, full and down the leg-side, the keeper can't collect cleanly and they sneak a couple of runs

Colin de Grandhomme, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, out Caught by Prithvi Shaw!! You got to be kidding me. Take a bow Shreyas Iyer. He's placed a man very straight behind the keeper and this ball goes to him. For a moment it looked a brilliant, cheeky scoop shot from Sarfaraz Khan to this low full around off stump, until the little fella - Prithvi Shaw - sneaked across to his right into the frame. He almost made a mess of it, juggled and took it on the second attempt. Don't be harsh on Sarfaraz Khan people, he actually played a good shot, but fell in the trap set by Iyer. Sarfaraz Khan c Prithvi Shaw b Harshal Patel 11(8) [4s-2]

Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, no run, slower ball on the shorter side, Sarfaraz tries to cut and misses
Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, FOUR, oh superbly guided away past point and he thanks the heavens again. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Sarfaraz uses the pace on the ball and beats third man
Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, wide, now he tries to unsettle the bowler by moving around in the crease, succeeds as Harshal Patel bowls down the leg-side
Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, FOUR, lovely lofted drive and this should lift Sarfaraz Khan's confidence. Straightaway looks to the heavens after connecting well. Full ball outside off stump, Sarfaraz hits this over cover
Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, wide, slower ball and it slips down the leg-side
Harshal Patel to Sarfaraz Khan, no run, low full toss thuds into the pad, Sarfaraz misses a flick, easy ball that was, impact was marginally on leg stump, just umpire's call and it was evident to the naked eye that the ball will miss the leg stump. DEL took the chance and went for the review, only to lose it

LBW review taken. Easily missing leg I guess. Impact may even be missing, umpire's call is maximum. Surely will miss the sticks. Waiting for HawkEye, DEL players have gone back to their places, so that tells you the story. MUMSSING, review lost.

Harshal Patel [3.0-0-37-0] is back into the attack

Boult to Sarfaraz Khan, 1 run, great yorker, Sarfaraz gets his bat down to keep it out, the ball takes the stumps as it rolls back
Boult to de Villiers, 1 run, very full and outside off stump, de Villiers drives it to sweeper cover

AB's wicket will spice this game up. BLR still well in front with people who can swing the willow around.

Boult to Sarfaraz Khan, 1 run, the yorker again, sqeezed out to long leg
Boult to de Villiers, 1 run, wide yorker dug out to deep point
Boult to Sarfaraz Khan, 1 run, opens the face of the bat and guides this short of length delivery to third man

Sarfaraz Khan, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Comeback game, the chase under control and all he needs to do is play sensibly and support AB

Boult to Mandeep, out Bowled!! Oopsy! Why would you swipe across the line from a good length on this pitch. Made it look as if it stayed low. The scrambled seam delivery and the ball ignited the stumps after beating the ugly swipe from the batsman. Dan Vettori gestures to someone to go out now from the dugout. Okay, it's Sarfaraz! Mandeep b Boult 13(14) [6s-1]

Boult to Mandeep, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Trent Boult [2.0-0-20-1] is back into the attack

Mishra to de Villiers, 2 runs, short and nudged to deep mid-wicket, Mandeep quickly races back for the second. So Mishra is done
Mishra to Mandeep, 1 run, advances and drives it to long-on, mistimed hit though
Mishra to Mandeep, no run, oh that's dangerously played off the back foot. The quicker delivery, Mandeep manages to get a leading edge that rolls towards short third man
Mishra to Mandeep, no run, driven softly to cover
