commentary

We are done with 59 games! Just the one game to go, the finals. A clash between Mumbai and Delhi. All to play for on the 10th of November, 2020. One side looking for its first title and the other its 5th. It should be a cracking contest. That game begins at 1800 local (1400 GMT). Do join us for that. Till then, take care and goodnight!

Marcus Stoinis is the MAN OF THE MATCH. 38 runs from 27 balls and 3/26 with the ball. Says that opening is something he has done in a couple of seasons in the BBL. States that there was a bit of swing as well early on. On what it was between him and Rashid when the latter dismissed him, Stoinis says he had no idea about it. States that he asked Rashid about it when he was bowling but got no answer to it. Adds that the tournament has been hard on everybody, with the quarantine and all, missing the family. States that Mumbai are a very strong side and that Delhi need to be at their best to beat them.

Shreyas Iyer, the VICTORIOUS DELHI SKIPPER, says that it is amazing. This is the best feeling to have. The emotions have been like a roller-coaster. But as a family, it is an amazing feeling to have. He further says that as a captain, he has learnt a lot. States that he has got a lot of support from the coaches, management and the team owners. Says that the emotions keep going high and low. Is happy with the way they have maintained their temperament. Shreyas states that with the next game against Mumbai, who are a good side, it is important to stay composed. Adds that Rashid is a very good bowler and it was important to play him carefully in the middle overs. Says that Stoinis opening was because they needed to rocket to a good start.

Kagiso Rabada has the purple cap back on. He says that this was his day. States that the primary objective is to win the tournament. Does not mind if they win the tournament and he does not manage any wicket. Kagiso says that when one plays for a good deal of time, there are challenges, mentally and physically. Feels happy that they were good today. Need to be more good in the finals though, he says. States that there was a bit of swing in the warm-up, tried his luck and it paid off. Says that it was a very good wicket to bat on. Says that Delhi has never reached the final since the League has begun. States that the team is glad to have taken themselves this far. Says that the League's magnitude is very high, does not get any further than this. Playing against Mumbai, Rabada says they have a good pool of talent as well.

David Warner, Hyderabad's captain, says that nobody gave Hyderabad a chance at the start. The talk was about the big 3 - Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi. But he is happy with the way they have gone about in the tournament. States that Natarajan was a great find. Pandey did well towards the end stages of the tournament. Believes it is important to take catches and says will do well next time. Adds that losing players like Saha is unfortunate. But Warner also says that it is important to work with what one has got. Says that Hyderabad's fans are very loyal. He says that the team is like a second home to him. The franchise owners are very good and everyone is like family.

Earlier in the game, after Delhi opted to bat first, Dhawan and Hetmyer ensured they took their side to a very good total. For Hyderabad, Williamson along with Holder and Samad tried his best to take his side over the line but his knock and the other two's went in vain.

Coming to the batting now, Hyderabad needed a good start but they had lost 3 in the Powerplay. Also, the problem for them in this innings was them losing wickets at the wrong time. Williamson was brilliant. He calculated his innings excellently and along with Holder first and then Samad, it seemed like he would take them over the line but that was not the case. Once he fell, it was all over.

Delhi it is to meet Mumbai in the finals! What a game though we were treated to. Outstanding. Yes, Delhi was always in control but Hyderabad surely had them worried when Williamson and Samad were batting. They though needed one of the two to play the distance but both fell at the wrong time. Have to credit Stoinis and Rabada for the way they bowled. Especially the 17th over by the former and the 19th by the latter. Have to say it is those two who changed the game with their spells.

Anrich Nortje to Sandeep Sharma, Well, a little moment of comedy in the end. Sandeep Sharma moves too far to the leg side, Anrich Nortje bowls it very full on off, Sharma brings the bat down in time.

They take a quick single. The throw comes to Pant who whips the bails off. The umpires refer it upstairs. Rashid Khan gets in safely though, the replays show.

The umpires want to have a look for the run out. Bat is grounded before the wickets are broken.

Marcus Stoinis to Kane Williamson, OUT! TAKEN! Heartache for all the Hyderabad fans. Williamson, what an innings, 67 from 45. Full and well outside off, Williamson slices the ball while going for a drive. Would have been a wide had he left it. But he goes after it, slices it over cover. It is to the left of Rabada at deep cover. KG gets there and completes the catch.

Marcus Stoinis to Kane Williamson, FOUR! Brilliant, brilliant. Around off on a good length, Kane opens the face of his bat deliberately late, knows Rabada is there at backward point. Gets it wide of him and gets it into the boundary.

What has happened there? Shreyas Iyer was the man at long off. As he picked up the last ball and threw it back towards the bowler, he seems to have injured his shoulder. He gave it his all in the throw and the old shoulder injury seems to have resurfaced. He is staying on but is inside the circle.

Marcus Stoinis is back in the attack. 2-0-17-2 for him so far. Can he get either of these two here?

DRINKS! What a game this is turning out to be! 51 needed in 24. Williamson holds the key and the rest have to play around him. Delhi need his wicket but they would know, one good over and the game could well drift away from them. An exciting passage of play awaits.

15.6
1
Ravichandran Ashwin to Kane Williamson, In the air... but short! On off, Williamson strokes it uppishly towards long on. But it falls well short of Patel there. Axar did not go for the catch as it was well ahead of him, choosing to save what could have been a possible boundary. Just the single. 51 runs needed in the last 4 overs.

Axar Patel to Jason Holder, OUT! CAUGHT! The fielder completes the catch easily. Another goes down. Floated on middle and leg, Jason Holder comes down and looks to loft it over mid-wicket for a biggie. But it was neither a power shot nor a chip. Somewhere in between, it goes straight into the hands of Dubey, who comes running forward from deep mid-wicket. Warner's men need 100 runs in 50 balls.

Pravin Dubey to Kane Williamson, Tossed up on middle, the Kiwi mistimes his sweep through the carpet. It goes to long on for a single.

DRINKS! Delhi well and truly on top! The run rate has been pushed over 10 and they have already taken three. More of the same is what they would want. For Hyderabad. They would hope the two batting out there need to keep going. They did in the game before this one and need to do it here too. Can they? We will find out.

8.6
2
Axar Patel to Jason Holder, Just a couple then! Floated around off, Holder lifts it over short mid-wicket. It is racing away in between long on and deep mid-wicket. Both fielders run to it. Pravin, the long on fielder, cuts it off but it looks like he has touched the ropes in doing so. The umpires have a look. Replays are in and Paul Reiffel is satisfied with the save. Just the two runs there.

Is that a boundary? Or has Dubey pulled it off well? Is his back foot touching the ropes? No, the umpire is happy with it, just the couple.

Anrich Nortje to Priyam Garg, An appeal for LBW but not given. Full and on off and middle, Priyam looks to flick but he misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal for LBW is made but not given.

We are all set for the chase to begin. The umpires are making their way back to the middle. The Delhi players too stride out to the middle.
