23:28 (IST)01 Apr 2019

BOWLED! After being hit for a six Shami cleans up Pant for 39. The bat face came down a bit late and that was Pant's undoing. DC- 144/4, Delhi Capitals need 23 runs in 20 balls

23:21 (IST)01 Apr 2019

Pant lofts Ashwin for a six and the 50-run stand between Pant and Ingram DC-135/3, Delhi Capitals need 32 runs in 27 balls. KXIP need to break this partnership to comeback into this.

23:19 (IST)01 Apr 2019

First Imgram times one through covers with perfection and then Down the pitch and over the bowler's head for a huge six!  DC- 128/3 (15 ovs), Delhi Capitals need 39 runs in 30 balls

23:05 (IST)01 Apr 2019

Rishabh Pant's run rate in this year's IPL:
v spin 7.77
v pace 14.10
Having spin from both ends would appear to be a sound move against Pant. 

23:04 (IST)01 Apr 2019
Swept for FOUR!

Colin Ingram with a fine sweep as Ashwin drifts one on the pads. Delhi moving comfortably ahead. DC- 98/3

22:55 (IST)01 Apr 2019

Ashwin traps Dhawan with the carrom ball. He cramps Dhawan for room who misses and gets hit on the pads first. KXIP get the big wicket right at the halfway mark. DC- 83/3 after 10 ovs

22:44 (IST)01 Apr 2019
Here is Mr. Pant

Mumbai fans won't be forgetting too soon what Pant did to their team at the Wankhede. But he has to bat a lot more than just five overs this time. 

22:40 (IST)01 Apr 2019

Viljoen gets his first IPL wicket. Good length delivery outside off that Shreyas reaches out to, the ball takes the inside edge and rattles the stumps. Viljoen is pumped up!!! He punches the air, almost punches the fist Brett Lee style and then his eyes seemed to bore into Shreyas Iyer's soul as the two walked past each other. That is some scary stuff. 

22:33 (IST)01 Apr 2019
End of the powerplay

This has been a good partnership from Shreyas and Dhawan. Apart from the one time when Shreyas almost chopped on off Shami, the pair have played a chanceless innings thus far. DC 49/1. 

22:21 (IST)01 Apr 2019
3 overs gone

Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer steadying the ship for Delhi. Both players have a hit a four each but nothing more flashy than that. Wicket conservation seems to be the priority at the moment. 

22:09 (IST)01 Apr 2019
7/1 after 1st over

Shaw was stood there for some time as it was not clear whether he was bowled or caught behind. Replays showed that Rahul had caught the ball and knocked off the bails as a reflex action. There was a nick too so it was indeed a caught behind. Dhawan then hit a four off the penultimate ball of that over. 

22:05 (IST)01 Apr 2019

How about this for a start. Prithvi Shaw caught behind off Ravi Ashwin off the very first ball of the innings. He was dismissed one run short off a century in the previous and now he walks without scoring any. 

21:52 (IST)01 Apr 2019
KXIP 166/9 after 20 overs

Mandeep ends the proceedings with a six and a four so it is not all doom and despair for KXIP in the death overs. 

21:51 (IST)01 Apr 2019

Rabada with a bouncer that hits Shami on the body. Mandeep has almost run all the way to the other side before Shami could even spot him and he decides to leave the crease. Rabada respectfully takes off the bails at the non-striker's end before giving Shami and apologetic fist bump. All that sportsmanship could have led to an awkward situation as the third umpire had to take a look at whether Rabada took the singular bail off without touching it with the ball first. But the big screen says out so no problems there. 

Delhi Capitals XI: 1 Prithvi Shaw, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Shreyas Iyer (capt), 4 Colin Ingram, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Hanuma Vihari, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Harshal Patel, 9 Avesh Khan, 10 Sandeep Lamichhane, 11 Kagiso Rabada
