21:24 (IST)08 Oct 2021
Chahal's momentary brain fade 😡🗣️🔇🔉

Virat Kohli wasn’t too chuffed with Yuzvendra Chahal. And Shimron Hetmeyer wasn’t too happy with Shreyas Iyer. Hetmeyer had been bamboozled by a Chahal googly and as the ball ran towards short third man, Iyer rushed across for a single. Hetmeyer was late to react and ran. The throw was spot on at the non-striker’s end but Chahal was still busy appealing for lbw. And the ball flew dangerously close past the untenanted stumps with Hetmeyer way out of the crease and Chahal just about curtailing his appeal at a fair distance from the stumps. Kohli winced and gestured to him that he should have ran to the stumps to collect the throw to effect the run out. Meanwhile, Hetmeyer was voicing his grievance to Iyer to verbalise the call for single rather than just run across: “Call!” Neither the batsmen nor the fielding side was happy there.

21:22 (IST)08 Oct 2021
Pant the best diver in DC 🥽

Batsmen treasure their straight drives but can’t be said the same about the non-strikers. Twice in a row, Shreyas Iyer had Rishabh Pant scrambling to safety and sprawling to the ground. Iyer drove Yuzvendra Chahal straight back in the 13th over and Chahal dived. So did Pant. Chahal had stopped the ball first time and smiled at Pant. Next ball, rinse, repeat. This time Chahal couldn’t stop and the ball ricocheted off the stumps with Pant yet again on the lunge to save himself from the potential run out. Chahal had another smile as Pant dusted himself off and ran past him for the single. All that effort had perhaps drained him for not long after Pant fell, edging an attempted cut off Dan Christian to the ‘keeper.

21:17 (IST)08 Oct 2021
DC finish at 164/5, RCB need 165 to win

Last over. Can Hetmyer take DC to 170? Let's see. Siraj comes in to bowl. And Patel hits a four off the third ball. Very good over from Siraj. And he gets a wicket in the last ball. Hetmyer walks. DC finish at 164/5 after 20 overs.

21:10 (IST)08 Oct 2021
One over left

Harshal Patel in for the 19th over. He will be bowling to Ripal Patel. It's Patel vs Patel. 1 run as Hetmyer is brought back to strike and promptly hits a 6. And two back to back wides. These extra runs can prove costly later. Over ends after 10 runs. DC 158/4 after 19 overs.

21:01 (IST)08 Oct 2021
Siraj snares Iyer

18th over begins. Just 2 left after this. Siraj in the attack. And Iyer is gone. Holes out to long-on and gets done. DC 143/4 after 17.4 overs.
