20:43 IST: Rabada to Kishan, FOUR! A pressure-releasing boundary from Kishan. A little short from Rabada and while the timing was not very good, the dew aids the ball to race to the boundary line.
20:38 IST: Timeout! Delhi were under pressure during the previous timeout, but what a comeback from the side. Ravichandran Ashwin has ruled the roost with three wickets -- including that of Pollard, while Nortje dismissed the dangerous Suryakumar Yadav. First innings poised for an exciting finish.

19:59 IST: Timeout! Capitals needed that timeout. They began brightly but De Kock and Suryakumar Yadav's counter-attack has put them on backfoot.
19:57 IST: Ashwin to Yadav, FOUR! Poor delivery yet again. Gives too much width and Yadav drives it square.

19:36 IST: Ashwin to Rohit, OUT! Ashwin comes one over too late. Rohit has faced issues with spin early on in the innings and here, he finds the turn into Rohit and the MI captain is out plumb. Departs on the very first delivery!
19:33 IST: Sams to De Kock, FOUR! Best of the three shots so far. This one was a little similar to the first boundary but it was more on the inside. De Kock makes room and sends it down to long-on boundary.
19:32 IST: Sams to De Kock, FOUR! On to the body and slightly on the length and de Kock plays the flick shot. Easy pickings for the South African batsman so far.
19:30 IST: Sams to De Kock, FOUR! What a start! Juicy half-volley from Sams to begin the proceedings and de Kock says thank you very much. He simply guides the ball straight, and MI are off and rolling.

19:18 IST: Delhi Capitals are going with the same team which played against Mumbai Indians -- which means no Shimron Hetmyer.
19:15 IST: Rohit Sharma: Looks like a good pitch, it could play a bit slow. We know we are going to bat first now, so just post a good total. We know we have a good bowling line-up to defend any total. Just got to start well and then take it from there. Three changes, Bumrah, Boult and Hardik are back for Pattinson, Dhawal and Tiwary. We are confident, but it's a fresh game and we got to focus on our strengths.
