The young guy from Karnataka, Karun Nair have kept the hopes alive for Delhi Daredevils to qualify for the play-offs. DD chasing 158 against one of the best bowling sides of IPL 2016 was not easy as pie. The man of the moment Karun Nair kept control on his nerve and believed in himself till the last ball. Finally, Nair steered DD to a last-ball victory by hitting a four on the last delivery to strong contender of Purple Cap Bhuneshwar Kumar.
Mustafizur Rahman was in some dangerous touch as always, he just gave away 5 runs in 19th over and also dismissed Carlos Brathwaite. Even first 4 balls of last over bowled by Bhuneshwar Kumar were in favor of SRH as they just conceded 5 runs from it, but the remaining two balls were driven as 4 by Karun Nair to grab the last-ball victory.

What an innings from nair but if that last ball would have been stopped a superover would be more welcomed #DDvSRH
