Arshdeep Singh to Shikhar Dhawan
CENTURY FOR DHAWAN! Back-to-back hundreds for him in the Indian T20 League. Only player to do so as well. Short and wide outside off, Dhawan reaches out and forces it wide of the deep point fielder. Before the fielder can get to the ball, two taken. The helmet has been removed, the arms go up in celebration. What a knock! First batsman in the history of the tournament to score back-to-back hundreds. Take a bow!

He takes the first run. Hetmyer wants the second, Dhawan says no but Hetmyer keeps running. Dhawan eventually gives up and goes for the second and completes it easily.

What happened there? That was a chance but a very tough one. It is the loppy tossed up ball, it dips in nicely. Hooda runs down and tries to work it on the leg side but misses. The ball shoots up after going past and Pant fails to collect. A leg bye taken. Ashwin has been outstanding today although he would have fancied more than Gayle to have put his side in a safer position in the match. He however finishes with impressive figures of 4-0-27-1.

Kagiso Rabada to Glenn Maxwell
OUT! CAUGHT! Maxwell throws it away! A stunning running catch from Pant. Is there any twist in this game? A good length ball outside off, Maxwell looks to launch it out of the ground over the leg side. However, he fails to time it and it goes high in the air towards backward square leg. Pant who has returned in this game after nusring his hamstring injury covers a lot of ground and takes a fine tumbling catch. Surely a needless stroke from the Aussie.

Direct hit would've been really close. Full and outside off, Maxwell drives it towards mid off and calls for a run. Tushar fires the throw at the non-striker's end but misses. Replays show that Maxwell would've been on his bike had Tushar hit. That was a very risky single and not sure why Maxwell is taking such a run when there's hardly any pressure with respect to the asking rate.

Kagiso Rabada to Nicholas Pooran
OUT! CAUGHT! Classic seamer's wicket here. A superb bowling change from Iyer. The game is now coming back in Delhi's favour. Shortish ball just outside off, Pooran watches and seeing the short length, looks to sway away from the line. He does everything right except to pull back his hands in time. The ball takes the glove and goes to Rishabh Pant, the keeper, who takes it with ease. They appeal for a caught behind and it is given. A very soft dismissal to say the least.

Kagiso Rabada to Nicholas Pooran
EDGED AND FOUR! Does not matter at this stage for Punjab though. Pooran gets to his 50, his second in the League. He needs to continue though, there is a long way to go for Punjab in the chase still. Outside off on a good length, Pooran slashes hard at it. It comes off a thick outside edge and goes to the left of Pant. Rishabh Pant dives in that direction but it goes past him to the third man fence.

OUT! RUN OUT! Agarwal is hopping too. Moment of madness from Punjab here. 2nd wicket in the over. Agarwal is livid with Pooran. Tossed up and around off, Pooran pushes it to the right of the bowler. He takes off for the run. However, Agarwal is ball-watching and hesitates for a moment. Pooran keeps running. Agarwal eventually gives up and responds and goes for the run but it is too late as Ashwin quickly gets to the ball and fires the throw towards the keeper. Pant takes the bails off in a flash and Agarwal is short. His bat got stuck in the crease and he fell during his attempt to make it to the crease. He is wobbling as he goes to the pavilion. After that expensive over, Delhi needed something to cover things up and well, they have got a couple of wickets in very quick time.
