Morris would be feeling much lighter as well. Deny it as much as you like there's always pressure that comes with such a price tag, so it's good to get that first match-winning performance out of the way. There's no respite for us though with these matches (All. Of. Them) going down to the wire as they are. Until the next one, it's Sagar Chawla saying goodbye on behalf of Raju Peethala, Rishi Roy, Abhinand Raghavendran and Mukesh. Unadkat, Player of the Match: Have a lot of experience now I can say of handling tough situations. Was kind of a homecoming for me. Was bowling with the kind of freedom I wanted with the new ball. Couldn't do that last season. Had to step up this time. Didn't get the first game so I knew the chances when they come, I have to take them. If you see the stats I think I only bowled about four-five change of pace. It was about hitting the hard lengths, hitting good lengths because it was doing a bit. Feel there was a bit of moisture. Made good use of it. Changes you as a person in whole (marriage). Feel more settled, more calmer. Nothing like coming to the ground hugging your wife and then sitting beside guys believing in you. Sanju Samson: Had some hopes with Miller and Morris to come but to be really honest I thought that it was tough from there and I think the boys did really well to get over the line. It's about reading the conditions. Was a bit sticky to start with. Hard lengths and mixing up with the variations was the key. That's also our strength - three left-armers. They are slightly different from the other so we can use it in a different way. We had a chat with him, he was very confident and very clear (Sakariya). Can't do much, was just praying inside. Always sit back and review my game. If I play that match again 100 times I would not take the single (on denying strike to Morris last time). Chris Morris: I thought Delhi bowled really well, David played an unplayable knock. T20 cricket anything can happen in the end, fortunately went our way in the end. (When asked about the single denied in the previous game) I was gonna run back no matter what to sacrifice because Sanju was hitting it so sweetly. Sanju was hitting it like a dream, I wouldn't have been too upset if he had hit the last ball for a six. Dew plays a part here at the Wankhede, it does start to skid on. They hit the back of a length a lot better than we did. We got a few wickets early on, but they hit their lengths way better than we did. Our guys are experienced in taking pace off the ball and executed really well today. If we had to chase 140 odd when we got here, we would have taken it, so happy to get over the line. There are guys who get paid to bat and there are guys who get paid to slog, I know what I am. I am a slogger that swings everything I can, I play so much golf. The last game, the close game, we took so much out of that as a team. Chasing 222, it's quite a daunting task. For us to get as close as we did on the day, we took a lot out of that first game of ours. Guys took a lot of confidence into the game, but it's quite nice to know that we can win a game basically from anywhere after being down in the dumps. That's T20 cricket. Rishabh Pant: The bowlers did a good job at the start, but we let them get over us in the end. We could have bowled a bit better. It's part and parcel of the game and dew played a big role in the end. We were 15-20 runs short. But at least there is something to gain from this match, the bowlers did a great job at the start. Hopefully if something like this happens we can pull it off. In the second innings, there was much more dew, so the slower ball wasn't stopping. So we had to something in the second innings. 23:16 Local Time, 17:46 GMT, 23:16 IST: Morris gives a thumbs up to the dugout before Unadkat runs over for a big hug. The most expensive IPL buy has shown his worth here today. He was denied the strike by Samson in the previous game. He wasn't striking it clean when he came in today. Took a while to get one off the sweet spot, but then once he found his range it was game over for DC who weren't that impressive in the death either. The Capitals had worked so hard to get themselves into a dominant position despite having just 147 on the board. With Miller's wicket, they were favourites. But Morris was standing in the way, cashing in on missed yorkers and ordinary slower balls, capping off a rare low-scoring game here at the Wankhede. There was a bit in the pitch with the extra grass helping the seamers. Unadkat made good use of it earlier to finish with figures of 3/15. He then chipped in with the bat as well, giving Morris company when the winning runs were scored. Presentations soon. 19.4 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, SIX , high full toss, must've been close to a no ball but it doesn't matter. Morris has dispatched it over square leg for six. RR clinch a thriller 19.3 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, no run, tries to go back to the yorker and offers it in the slot outside off. Morris drills it hard. A couple of yards either side of extra cover and this would've been four but he's found Dhawan to perfection, stinging his hands 19.2 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, SIX , Chris Morris you beauty! Slower short ball, Morris picks it, waits on it and makes it disappear. Absolutely crunches the pull over square leg. It was the back of the hand variation from Curran which he uses quite often and sometimes gets predictable 19.1 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, 2 runs, fine yorker on middle but Morris has done a good job to squeeze it away wide of sweeper cover. Gets back for two. Clears the front leg nicely to enable the shot Another match down to the final over. 12 to get.

This has been helped on its way, and helped for a massive six over fine leg. On pace delivery on leg stump, Morris remains steady in the crease and just whips it nonchalantly. What power off those wrists 18.4 Rabada to Chris Morris, 2 runs, third umpire called into see whether Avesh Khan has kept this inside the ropes. Yes he has. Slower leg-cutter outside off, spins away to find a thick edge as Morris slogs.

Mid-off is in the ring, he tries going over that fielder but he's missed it by quite some way 18.2 Rabada to Chris Morris, no run, full outside off, 137kph cross seam delivery, Morris swings and misses. Bounces more than he anticipates 18.1 Rabada to Chris Morris, SIX , now he finds the sweet spot to bring the game to life again.

So nice to see Unadkat have a good outing, starting his season well after a few difficult ones previously. Morris would be feeling much lighter as well. Deny it as much as you like there's always pressure that comes with such a price tag, so it's good to get that first match-winning performance out of the way. There's no respite for us though with these matches (All. Of. Them) going down to the wire as they are. Until the next one, it's Sagar Chawla saying goodbye on behalf of Raju Peethala, Rishi Roy, Abhinand Raghavendran and Mukesh.

Unadkat, Player of the Match: Have a lot of experience now I can say of handling tough situations. Was kind of a homecoming for me. Was bowling with the kind of freedom I wanted with the new ball.

If you see the stats I think I only bowled about four-five change of pace. It was about hitting the hard lengths, hitting good lengths because it was doing a bit. Feel there was a bit of moisture. Made good use of it. Changes you as a person in whole (marriage). Feel more settled, more calmer. Nothing like coming to the ground hugging your wife and then sitting beside guys believing in you.
