So, that is it from myself, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Arijit. Do stay tuned to OneCricket and CricketExchange's coverage of a lot more matches
Dwayne Bravo: We didn't do well with the bat but the energy we showed in the field was commendable. I said in the team meeting that we should keep our destiny in our hands and not depend on other teams to qualify. 
Dominic Drakes(Player of the match): "The wicket was really flat. There was a team meeting and it really worked well. Yeah, I enjoy the moment when DJ Bravo gives the ball to me at hard times."
An easy win for Delhi Bulls in the end. They qualify for the play-offs with this 12-run victory. At the half-way mark, a target of 101 was expected to be easy to be chased down but the Bulls bowling attack came up with different plans. 

Skipper Dwayne Bravo started off with the heroics as he dismissed Johnson Charles with a slower delivery. A few deliveries later, Hazratullah Zazai fell victim to a stunning catch from Sherfane Rutherford. Bangla Tigers' collapse continued as Adil Rashid got rid of Will Jacks and Karim Jacks with two superb googlies in the third over.

The duo of Faf du Plessis and Benny Howell tried build a partnership but it was broken in the sixth over. Left-arm Sheraz Ahmed produced a superb yorker to dismiss Howell while Dominic Drakes had Du Plessis caught at deep backward point off his very first delivery. A couple of deliveries later, Drakes had James Faulkner drag a slower delivery onto his stumps. Drakes' over got even better when Luke Wood top-edged a cut shot to deep third. 

The West Indian all-rounder also got a fourth scalp when Vishnu Sukumaran miscued a lofted shot to long-on. In the end, Dwayne Bravo finished off the match without much jitters!
