23:36 hrs IST: Shikhar Dhawan in the man of the match for his resilient batting performance.
23:33 hrs IST: Thanks to this result, Delhi Daredevils are now out of contention for the play-off spots.
23:30 hrs IST: After the match, Rohit Sharma said: “The batting went wrong tonight. 138 was too less on that wicket. We knew the wicket wasn’t easy but we got nowhere near a good score. Sunrisers bowled well and kept us guessing. We just wanted to try something different by batting first today, and it didn’t pay off.”
“I think batting second was much easier, but 138 is too less. If you don’t take wickets, it’s always going to be hard. We discussed that we need wickets in the interval, but Shikhar batted well. It’s an eye-opener for us on what to do when we bat first, what to do in the first six overs and little things like that. We could be put into bat, it won’t always be in our favour, so we have a lot of learning from this loss.”
