Warner and Pant were involved in a crucial 67-run partnership for the third wicket. Playing in his 100th IPL match and 14 months after a horrible car crash, Pant tried to build the innings with occasional boundaries. But he got out for a 26-ball 28 as Chahal induced a faint lower edge for Sanju Samson to do the rest behind the stumps in the 14th over. The asking rate shot up to more than 13 runs an over and DC needed 66 from the last five overs. Stubbs kept DC in the game with two consecutive sixes off Ravichandran Ashwin in the 17th over, but in the end the Delhi side were short by 12 runs.(PTI) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
