commentary

That is it from this game! Bangalore move to the top of the points table for the moment. Delhi will be heartbroken but can take a lot of positives from this loss. The action continues on Wednesday, 28th April. As Chennai will look to regain the top spot as they take on struggling Hyderabad. That game begins at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Make sure you join us for that game. Till then, goodbye and take care!

For his sublime innings and the knock that was the difference between the two sides, AB de Villiers is named the Player of the Match! De Villiers first talks about his best shot. Tells that while the one over extra cover was a good one but he enjoyed the one over mid-wicket off Rabada was his best one. Adds that he hardly manages to get him away so he is happy. Tells that it is important to be fresh for every game. Adds that he worked hard at home and in the hotel room during the quarantine. Tells it is all about being fresh and managing yourself. Feels that they have a few experienced players in the side and young Indian bowlers who have done really well in international cricket. Adds that these players come with a lot of confidence and he along with Virat and Maxwell try to help them with whatever they could.

Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that he did feel that the game was getting away from them but praises Siraj for bowling that fine last over. Feels they could've done a few things better and the game would not have gone this far. Says that they lost two quick wickets. Praises the knocks from Patidar, Maxwell, and de Villiers. Tells that they felt 160-165 was a par total on this wicket. Smiles and says that they thought there would be dew but there wasn't any. Tells that Maxwell is their 7th bowling option this time around and adds that bowling is their standout feature. Virat says that when you captain for so long, you do feel pressure but adds that he goes with the guts of the bowler. Praises de Villiers and mentions that de Villiers has not played any competeitve cricket for 5 months but keeps producing knocks like these.

Stay tuned for the presentation!

Earlier in the evening, Bangalore were put to bat. They were in a spot of bother as they kept losing wickets regularly and none of the batters could convert the start. But AB de Villiers once again enhanced his reputation of being a superhuman. His unbeaten 75 off just 42 balls, including 23 off the final over propelled them to 172, a target that was marginally enough.

The hero of the final over, Mohammed Siraj is up for a chat. He says that his yorker was going good and he executed it. Adds that he did not think double mind as he was clear with his plan to execute the yorker. Mentions that playing Test matches has increased his confidence. Further says that he has learnt a lot from Bumrah and Ishant Sharma during the Test series.

Rishabh Pant, Delhi skipper, says that he is disappointed that they lost this match. Adds that Bangalore scored 10-15 runs more. Mentions that the spinners were not getting help in the end overs and that is why he gave Stoinis the last over of the innings. Further says that they will learn from this game and Hetmyer played brilliantly.

A look at Siraj's figure would make it look like he had a torrid game but he was brilliant especially in the final over, defending 13, he did an impeccable job to win the game for his side. Harshal Patel was once again amongst the wickets as he finished with a brace. Siraj and Jamieson grabbed one each. The latter was brilliant in his first three overs but was taken to the cleaners in his final over. Sundar and Chahal went wicketless but were economical. Kohli will be happy that his bowlers have once again delivered and won the game for them!

Chasing 173, Delhi did not get off to a good start as Dhawan and Smith both departed in the Powerplay. Shaw was looking good but failed to convert his start. Stoinis too failed to kick off after getting a start. With 81 needed off 44 balls, it looked like Delhi were out of it. Pant was struggling to time the ball and Hetmyer hadn't batted much this season. Hetmyer though came back to haunt his former side. His 53 off 25 almost snatched the victory from Bangalore but Pant, unfortunately, could not do the job in the final over as Delhi failed by just a mere run.

What a final over from Siraj! You little genius! He has come leaps and bounds and bowled a tremendous final over to win the game for Bangalore. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and Siraj is certainly the man for Bangalore this season. So close but yet so far for Delhi! They fought till the end but that was just not enough. Valiant effort from Hetmyer but it just was not enough.

Harshal Patel to Shimron Hetmyer, Full delivery on middle, Hetmyer pushes it through mid on for a single.

Harshal Patel to bowl the 17th over. 2/16 from his two overs so far.

Strategic Time-Out! Bangalore are in pole position in this game but Delhi are certainly not out of it. They need 56 in 24 balls but have two players who can hit the ball a mile. Captain Rishabh Pant has been patient so far but will now have to change gears. Hetmyer has played 12 deliveries and done well. Can this pair take Delhi over the line?  Bangalore were poor in the death in their last game but before that have been impressive, can they deliver under pressure?

Kyle Jamieson to Shimron Hetmyer, IN THE AIR AND DROPPED! Oh My! Has Devdutt Padikkal dropped the game here? Tough to sight the white ball when it goes high in the air but Padikkal should have taken that. Full toss around off, Hetmyer does not get under it and ends up miscuing it high in the air. It goes towards mid on. Padikkal runs and tries to get under it. He overruns it slightly and tries to take it behind his shoulder. The ball pops in and out of his hand. The batters take a run and Hetmyer will be thanking his stars here. Can he make it count now?

Change in bowling. Kyle Jamieson is back on!
