MATCH RESULT: Delhi Daredevils 7/123 (Sehwag 52, Pathan 14, Agarkar 11*, Beer 2/18, Mennie 2/21) df. Perth Scorchers 5/121 (S. Marsh 39, Katich 34, M. Marsh 20, Morel 3/19, Agarkar 2/14) by three wickets. Points: DEL 4, PRS 0. MOM: Agit Agarkar (DEL).
Agit Agarkar has been named man of the match with a terrific all around game, 2/14 with the ball and helping to see the Daredevils home with the bat. That is all we have for you for this match. Stay tuned for the next match in the CLT20 beginning shortly.
They had every chance with an over to go but two boundaries were enough for the Daredevils to get over the line. They'll likely advance to the Semi Finals while the Scorchers will head home after the Group Stage as they still search for a win.
Conditions were tough for batting throughout the game and it showed, the bowling was tight and the Scorchers kept themselves in the game by taking wickets on a regular basis. They came close but ultimately came up short with their modest total of 121.
A thrilling end to the match with the Delhi Daredevils getting up with three balls to spare to give themselves the best possible chance of making the Semi Finals.
