Spare a thought for Rishabh Pant, who smashed a blistering ton, yet his team failed to defend the target. Contrasting tales for both teams as HYD are the first team to enter the Playoffs while DEL are the first team to crash out of the tournament. Anyway, time to conclude the proceedings for today. The T20 League caravan rolls on, join us back tomorrow where Rajasthan take on Chennai at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Until then, it's a goodbye from all of us here. Cya!

Sixth consecutive win for HYD - the most they have had in succession in T20 League going past the five they had at the end of 2016 and start of 2017.

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Match: The Gabbar was always there - Yes! He's back (Smiles). Rishabh played an amazing knock, he took the game away from us. But we believed that we'll go in with a positive mind-set. I have played lots of cricket over here (at Kotla). I am glad that I scored 92 runs and I am looking forward to score more runs. There was no chat between us (himself and Williamson), we were doing our job. Kane has been playing brilliantly throughout this season and I was just in the flow, had to go for it. That's my class (on making it look too easy).

Williamson: We wanted to go out and keep playing as a team. And we have been playing on tough surfaces, so it was nice to go out and execute our batting plans. It's always tough chasing here. (At the half-way stage) we thought it was a tough surface, keeping a touch low perhaps. Pant played a special knock. They had a score above par. Dew played a little part, yes. Wicket was a good surface towards the end. A bit of partnership at the top, which gave us the momentum. We were batting with intent when chasing 180. I think when you are rotating the strike the boundaries start to come. It was nice to get that partnership. Shikhar was outstanding; certainly put them on the back foot.

Pant, Orange Cap holder: (On the loss) It's very harsh for our team because the pitch played better in the second half due to the dew. Happens in cricket sometimes, your bowling unit doesn't click. (On his knock) I was just trying to see the ball and hit it clean. Took my time early on and things worked out well. (Regarding the run outs) Happens, it was miscommunication. I just misjudged the run. Part and parcel of the game. After the couple of run outs, I just wanted to take extra responsibility for the team. (Whether it's his best knock) Not sure right now, but it's certainly among my best ones.

Iyer: I think it was a brilliant total to get on this wicket. Because the start we got was really disheartening. I think towards the end, the ball was coming nicely onto the bat. The wicket played well towards the end. Was a two-paced wicket. We didn't get many opportunities to get them out, so they played well. (On being out of contention for play-offs) There's always hope to carry into the next season. It's going to be really important as youngsters that we get along in the coming games. It will give us a boost for the next year. The experience will help in India A games and other matches.

In the end, it was a canter for HYD. Both experienced batsmen taking their side home without any hassle. Well-calculated chase from the visitors. Despite losing Hales early, Dhawan and Williamson bided their time, settled into their groove and compiled their respective fifties. DEL bowlers were all over the place, never at any point they were in the game in the second half.

Boult to Williamson, FOUR, game, set and match - HYD. Williamson finishes things off in style. Slanting on middle and leg, KW gets across and whips it over square leg to take HYD into the Playoffs. No-one in the deep and it'll be a boundary
Boult to Dhawan, 1 run, hacks it away to deep square leg and the scores are level now
Boult to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan moves into the nineties. Short, aiming at the body. No problems for Dhawan, who gets into a strong position and pulls it witheringly through mid-wicket. No chance for the fielder in the deep
Boult to Williamson, 1 run, very full outside off, Williamson arrests his high backlift and jams it to third man
Boult to Dhawan, 1 run, full and zooming at the stumps, crashed down to long-on

Trent Boult [3.0-0-32-0] is back into the attack

- This is the 3rd 100+ stand for HYD not involving Warner - all by Dhawan & Williamson
- 86* is the highest by Dhawan for HYD, going past 82* vs MUM in Vizag in 2016

Plunkett to Williamson, FOUR, Plunkett ends his spell with a four. He has taken quite a beating today. Overpitches this time, Williamson accepts the gift with glee and drills it through extra cover
Plunkett to Dhawan, 1 run, driven with authority to long-off
Plunkett to Williamson, 1 run, how isn't this called a no-ball? Clearly looked like it was above the waist. Williamson enquires the square leg umpire and is amused. Anyway, Plunkett slips in a full toss that is just about waist-high, swatted to deep mid-wicket
Plunkett to Dhawan, 1 run, full outside off, a leaning drive to long-off
Plunkett to Dhawan, 2 runs, not sure if this is the plan from Plunkett or he is not getting his rhythm right. Lasers it down leg, Dhawan spindles across and pulls it behind square on the on-side. Shaw from the deep runs across and keeps the pair down to a brace
Plunkett to Williamson, 1 run, angling on middle and leg, nurdled in front of square on the leg-side

Only 6 from Harshal's over. Some respite for DEL there.

Harshal Patel to Williamson, 1 run, heaves across the line, rolls away to deep square leg
Harshal Patel to Williamson, no run, played meekly to cover
Harshal Patel to Dhawan, 1 run, oh, Harshal fools Dhawan with this cutter that holds up on the pitch slightly. Dhawan is early into the hoick and squirts it off the cue-end down the pitch. Patel bends low and can't stop that
Harshal Patel to Dhawan, FOUR, this boundary brings the 150-run stand between the duo. Harmless length delivery outside off, no mercy whatsoever. Dhawan leans across and bashes it over extra cover
Harshal Patel to Dhawan, no run, seemed like the off-paced delivery, Dhawan again can't get his timing on the pull. Drags it off the inner half and Pant makes a good stop prancing to his right
Harshal Patel to Dhawan, no run, goes wide of the crease and hurls it full outside off, Dhawan goes with hard hands and mistimes it back to the bowler - who gets a fingertip and parries it to mid-on

Harshal Patel [3.0-0-26-1] is back into the attack

Time-out in place. 24 runs required off 24 balls. Mere formality now as the final rites is underway at the Kotla. KW and Dhawan will try to boost the NRAJ by going hammer and tongs. For DEL, they can only pray for a miracle.

Plunkett to Dhawan, 1 run, shortish outside off, poked into the off-side
Plunkett to Williamson, 1 run, nudged gently to deep mid-wicket
Plunkett to Williamson, SIX, another tripe ball on leg-stump line, it's half a dozen. Banged in short, on leg-stump. Williamson swivels and helps it over disdainfully to fine leg. The ball lands on the ad cushions, the umpires took the confirmation of the third umpire before signalling it a six
Plunkett to Williamson, 2 runs, this is the epitome of unimaginative bowling by DEL. Keeps drifting it down leg, Williamson is happy to shuffle inside the line and tickle it very fine. Harshal Patel with a sliding stop but can't prevent the duo from stealing the second
Plunkett to Dhawan, 1 run, Dhawan triggers for a second before opening his bat face to guide this fuller length delivery outside off towards point
Plunkett to Williamson, 1 run, very full outside off, Williamson waits in his crease and quells it to point for a single

Liam Plunkett [2.0-0-19-0] is back into the attack

Just 36 runs needed in 30 balls. HYD are sleep-walking through this chase.

Boult to Williamson, 1 run, lowers his pace does Boult, 119kph length ball on the pads. Worked neatly to deep square leg
Boult to Dhawan, 1 run, punched on the up to sweeper cover
Boult to Williamson, 1 run, run-out chance missed. KW had almost given up. Nothing going DEL's way at the moment. Squeezed to point and they take on Iyer's throw, who misses the target at the non-striker's end
