Speaking after the game, man-of-the-match Dhawan jokingly said Delhi should have scored more runs. The move didn't really work at first as they lost both their openers - Prithivi Shaw and jason Roy - in successive balls.
Rishabh Pant remained unbeaten till the end, scoring 128 runs from 63 balls, and smashing 15 fours and seven sixes in the process.

Batting first, the Daredevils put up 187-5 in their 20 overs. In fact, he was the only Delhi batsman to get any measure of the Kotla track with Harshal's 24 being the next highest score from the home side.
