Delhi 36-2 (4 ovs); D/L Target: 71 in 6 ovs | Scorecard

Left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat to bowl the third over. He beats Maxwell twice in a row with full deliveries slanted across him as the Australian tries to swing it on the leg side.

Unadkat then bowls a wide yorker as Maxwell is beaten again before he gets a thick outside edge which flies over short thirdman for a four.

Maxwell finally gets off the middle as he powerfully clubs a length ball down the ground over long-on for a six.

Unadkat bowls the last ball well wide of the off-stump as Maxwell throws his bat to slash it over point for a four to make it 14 from the last three balls.

Delhi are 29 for one in three overs, needing 42 from three overs for victory.

Ben Laughlin comes into the attack. Pant smashes the first ball straight for two runs before he skies the next ball high down as Tripathi makes a valiant effort but is unable to hold on.

Delhi's hopes receive a big jolt as Maxwell is foxed by the slower ball from Maxwell and is caught behind for 17.

New Chris Morris is also beaten by the slower one from Laughlin before he slices the last ball behind point for two runs.

Delhi are 36 for two in four overs, needing 35 from two overs for victory.
