Needing 11 runs in the last over bowled by Mustafizur Rahman, Roy struck a four and six off the first two deliveries but missed the next three deliveries, thus giving the Delhi dugout a few anxious moments. When the score was 194-7 after 20, they must have thought the match was theirs to win. Furthermore, he applauded Jason Roy and Rishab Pant for their innings against his team. Whereas, Delhi never had a chance of holding the trophy and is gunning to win the coveted title under veteran opener Gautam Gambhir's guidance. With one needed off one, Roy swung again and this time made enough contact to clear the infield on the off side and ensure his outstanding debut for Daredevils did not have a Super Over. With one ball remaining in the match and the scores level, the superb Surrey star lofted the ball high over the tight ring of fielders, and gave Delhi their first win of the tournament. Chris Lynn did look risky scoring 49 runs (including 1 six and 7 fours) off just 34 balls, but apart from him no one could weave any magic. The hosts lost six wickets for 28 runs with Kieron Pollard falling for a duck.

Williamson's stay was cut short by Mitchell Johnson whose fullish delivery on the leg stump was flicked on to square leg where Andre Russell took an easy catch. Daredevils batsman Shreyas Iyer said they were expecting a target of around 220 and were obviously happy to be going after 195 instead. Windies opener Evin Lewis (48) finally came to his own and was part of a hundred run partnership with Yadav which personified carnage on the cricket field.

In the build-up, this was a clash between an established powerhouse and a team full of promising talent; in reality, it was a scrap between two sides searching for their first win in the season. But soon after that, Rahul Tewatia applied the brakes and send Lewis back, who was caught by Jason Roy at mid-off. He smashed six boundaries and a whopping six sixes in his assault, ramping up his aggression once he passed a half-century and with the game on the line. Surya, who hit seven fours and a six, unsuccessfully reviewed the decision.
