Shikhar Dhawan | acting captain for Delhi Capitals: It was a thrilling game and shouldn't have gone to the Super Over. We should have won it easily, but we made few mistakes but that's part of the journey. I feel that the two boundaries which Avesh got hit, we should have contained them. But, it's part of the game. We were dominating the game whole time, shouldn't have let it go that way in the end. It was very tough to bat specially after the powerplay, turning and holding. Kane Williamson played a good knock, he's a champion player and he always shows his class. It's good to win the game in the end. We made it quite thrilling going to the Super Over and chasing it down. Those little things make a huge impact, I am glad that David didn't complete that run, we got the edge over that and we ended up winning the game. Absolutely, looking forward for it (Ahmedabad) and glad that the wicket's going to be a bit more better than this one. We are playing nice as a team. We are not depending on one player. Prithvi Shaw, Man of the Match: It was a good wicket in the first six overs and then it slowed down, but it was fine. I felt the wicket was behaving a bit slower, the spinners were bowling well. 160 was good enough to defend, but a close game. I am just doing all those stuff I have worked with. It's helping me right now, so I think I should continue that. I didn't think about it (Super Over) but Williamson played fantastic. He played a really good knock. Axar bowled really well in the Super Over. I wasn't there, I knew Shikhar bhai and Pant would go for sure because Rashid was going to bowl for sure. So, they wanted Pant and Shikhi to go and hit. Steve Smith: I fit in really well with this crew. They are a good bunch of guys. We are playing some good cricket as well, nice to get over the line and in the nail-biter tonight. I have worked with Ricky a little bit, he was my captain when I first started playing international cricket, so I know him well. He's done some really good things with this franchise. He is very calm, he brings great energy to the group. It's been a good first couple of weeks. This wicket's been pretty difficult to score as well. I probably tried to over-hit the ball today rather than just timing it and using the middle of the bat a bit more. We have seen on this wicket, guys who have tried to muscle the ball and over-it it haven't done quite as well. Just fortunate to get over the line in end. Kane played a smart innings to get deep and gave them a chance. Fortunately we are on the right side of it tonight.  David Warner: It has been a tough one. The way our bowlers came back after the powerplay was fantastic. We knew on this surface if you got off to a flier it is always going to be tough in the middle, the bowlers executed well. I thought Vijay, who is not one of our strike bowlers, bowled fantastically, could have bowled him an extra one, that's the handiness of having him in the middle but the bowlers got us to a good total to chase. Obviously Jonny at the top of the order and Kane taking it deep, we couldn't bat well in the middle overs. It depends on the selectors, it was a harsh call as per my opinion (On leaving out Manish Pandey). But at the end of the day it is a decision that they took and you cannot discredit Virat, he's a very good player and the surface was difficult. They bowled well in the middle and made it challenging for us. If you hit the ball to a world class fielder, you are going to get run out 9 times out of 10 (about his run out). They've done it the hard way but importantly they've got the job done. Just want to take a moment to point out how important the umpire's decision on the field was on that fifth delivery with DC needing two off two in the super over. If that had been given out, then even if the decision was overturned through review, the run wouldn't have counted. Even the last ball for that matter. Then there was the short run as well from SRH which could've made the difference. Rashid tried really hard but he didn't have much to work with as Axar just didn't let the pair of Warner and Williamson get away. Had to be Bairstow though, surely? He was brilliant to provide the flier that was so crucial earlier in a tall chase of 160 on a challenging pitch. Williamson maneuvered the middle overs well but he seemed to be running out of gas towards the end and it was Suchith's cameo that gave the final flourish for a Super Over finish. Axar was too good though on a pitch where things were stacked in his favour. Ball 6 - Rashid to Dhawan, leg byes, 1 run, Dhawan misses the sweep but they'll get through for the leg bye. That's the win for DC. A scrappy, scrappy win. This googly was quite full but the ball was pitching outside leg which is why the LBW shout was turned down Ball 5 - Rashid to Pant, leg byes,1 run, SRH have taken a review but it's a desperate one as Pant misses the slog sweep. This is turning in from leg and would miss leg stump. 7/0 Ball 4 - Rashid to Pant, no run, length ball fired in on middle, Pant makes room looking to hoist it over extra cover but it spins in and takes an inside edge onto pad Ball 3 - Rashid to Pant, FOUR , Pant goes reverse and swipes it over short third man. Bold option, which is what you'd back Pant to take at a time like this. 6/0 Ball 2 - Rashid to Dhawan, leg byes, 1 run, pushed through flat on leg, back of a length, it skids through on Dhawan as he looks to pull and deflects off the pad. 2/0 Bowling most Super Overs in IPL 4 Jasprit Bumrah 3 Rashid Khan * 2 Mohammed Shami 2 James Faulkner 2 Kagiso Rabada - And for the first time we have spinners bowling Super Overs for both sides Ball 1 - Rashid to Pant, 1 run, the googly's quite short on middle but Pant can't put it to the fence. Pulls it hard to deep square leg. 1/0 Rashid's going to bowl this over for SRH now I assume. Yep. Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant are the two batsmen for DC. Warner and Rashid trying to get their field right. The gamble has paid off for Pant. Axar hasn't let him down. And turns out, there was a short run from Warner off that last ball. So the target is just 8 . Where was Bairstow? Ball 6 - Axar to Warner, 1 run, lovely from Axar as he bowls it right in the blockhole. Warner goes deep in the crease but can't do much other than squeezing it through midwicket. Races back for two. Just seven off the over, courtesy Warner's short run Ball 5 - Axar to Williamson, leg byes, 1 run, DC have gone for a review off the fifth ball as Williamson misses the reverse-sweep and is struck on the pad. They go through for the leg-bye as the umpire turns down the appeal. Looks quite close though. Nah, it's missing leg stump, didn't straighten enough. 6/0 Ball 4 - Axar to Williamson, no run, short again, but this one stops in the pitch and turns sharply as Williamson looks to pull and beats the outside edge. 5/0 Ball 3 - Axar to Williamson, FOUR , dragged down short by Axar at the stumps and WIlliamson punishes him by nailing the pull through square leg. 5/0 Ball 2 - Axar to Warner, 1 run, slogs again as it turns in, this time drags it off the inside half to deep square leg. 1/0 Load More Commentary

Already a big gap emerging between the top three teams and the bottom two. Delhi have gone to second place, while SRH stay second from bottom with one win. Uphill battle from here to make it through. That's all from us today. We'll have the presentations updated below when they happen. It's a goodnight from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Akshay Maanay, Abhinand Raghavendran, Kumar Abhisekh Das and Naga!

- And for the first time we have spinners bowling Super Overs for both sides

Ball 1 - Rashid to Pant, 1 run, the googly's quite short on middle but Pant can't put it to the fence. Pulls it hard to deep square leg. 1/0

Rashid's going to bowl this over for SRH now I assume. Yep. Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant are the two batsmen for DC. Warner and Rashid trying to get their field right.

The gamble has paid off for Pant. Axar hasn't let him down. And turns out, there was a short run from Warner off that last ball. So the target is just 8. Where was Bairstow?

Ball 6 - Axar to Warner, 1 run, lovely from Axar as he bowls it right in the blockhole. Warner goes deep in the crease but can't do much other than squeezing it through midwicket. Races back for two. Just seven off the over, courtesy Warner's short run

Ball 5 - Axar to Williamson, leg byes, 1 run, DC have gone for a review off the fifth ball as Williamson misses the reverse-sweep and is struck on the pad. They go through for the leg-bye as the umpire turns down the appeal. Looks quite close though. Nah, it's missing leg stump, didn't straighten enough. 6/0

Ball 4 - Axar to Williamson, no run, short again, but this one stops in the pitch and turns sharply as Williamson looks to pull and beats the outside edge. 5/0

Ball 3 - Axar to Williamson, FOUR, dragged down short by Axar at the stumps and WIlliamson punishes him by nailing the pull through square leg. 5/0

Ball 2 - Axar to Warner, 1 run, slogs again as it turns in, this time drags it off the inside half to deep square leg. 1/0
