Chasing 172, 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.
One of the closet game of the IPL:-
A look at Siraj’s figure would make it look like he had a difficult 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!
Rishabh Pant, Delhi skipper, tells that he is disappointed that they lost this match. He adds that Bangalore scored 10-15 runs more. Pant also 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. 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
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that he did feel that the game was getting away from them but appreciates 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.
