All right then. An easy win for Capitals to continue their dominance this season. All-round show to start the second leg, and Capitals are No. 1 now. That is it from us tonight, but catch us for the game tomorrow, as the IPL keeps rolling! Until then, goodbye and good night from Sreshth, Raghav, Thilak and me, Himanshu!

Nortje is the Player of the Match: "Obviously missing out on the first half of the tournament... Personally I wanted to bring the energy. Looking at the first game of the tournament, we decided it was nice to see some grass. Nice to have some sort of assistance, we didn't have to do too much; just keep it simple. I don't focus on that [getting the big wickets]..."

Pant speaks after the win: "Very happy with this performance. We had a good first phase... Happy to start this way. We want to focus on the process [is what Ponting says]. It was a pretty good bowling... our bowlers did a pretty good job to restrict them. We have one of the quickest bowlers in the world. Pretty happy as the skipper..."

Time for the presentations

Ajay : "J.Holder not in form. M.Nabi not in good bowling form either. M.Marsh I think is not available. worries for SRH"

So Capitals go atop the points table after today's win, although they have a played a game more than Super Kings.

Faisal : "With just 8 games played, SRH are virtually out of the playoff race... "

Dhawan has the orange cap: "Enjoying wearing the cap and enjoying the batting... Not a very true surface, so planning according to it. I consciously made the effort to increase the tempo in the powerplay... I love to be an impactful player for my side. Rabada and Nortje are our fast guns. Rabada has been doing great... He just comes and gets the wickets. Nortje is maturing nicely... "

Here's Williamson speaking after the loss: "Didn't get off to the start we would have liked. Some good fighting with the bat at the end; some 25 or 30 short in the end. Bit of a shame, but at the same time, important we keep the attitude the boys showed last time... Been a tough campaign so far. At our bets, we can beat anybody. They are an outstanding side, and have a great balance. They put us under pressure, and that is what you expcet. Things started to unfold for us... It wasn't to be today. Delhi were fantastic... For us, it is focusing on our cricket and trying to improve."

9.26pm So Capitals continue their good form from the first leg. The so called former captain and the incumbent one combine to add 67. A dominant chase comes to an end, with more than two overs left, and eight wickets in the bank too. Save for Shaw, all of Capitals' batters were among the runs.

Holder to Iyer, SIX, hammers this pull over long-on! Iyer dances around in his crease to first hint to come down, and then steps across to this shortish ball outside off. Absolutely slams that beyond the fence, as Sunrisers crumble to their seventh loss in eight games with Capitals' eight-wicket win

Holder to Iyer, no run, good length ball on off, and finds short midwicket with his pull

Praharsh: "Pant is not leaving things till last over after that chase against RCB at Ahmedabad"

Holder to Pant, 1 run, slower ball, and a low full-toss on middle and leg. Flicked to deep midwicket

Will he finish off with a boundary?

Holder to Pant, FOUR, beats mid-off with that crunching drive! The fielder dives to his right, but is beaten. Pant uses his bottom hand to this really full outside off, and caresses that for four

Malli: "I will be disappointed if DC doesn't make to finals"

Over the stumps to Pant
