Mayank Agarwal's another high score of 99*(58) ended up in vain as the team failed to cross the winning line once again. Despite Agarwal's valiant effort, Punjab could manage 166/6 at the end of their 20 overs. However, Delhi chased it comfortably with 7 wickets and 14 balls to spare. Shikhar Dhawan who is in great touch, played a classy knock and Prithvi Shaw's initial firepower in the powerplay ensured DC were able to chase that total convincingly.
