Delhi's reply started in the worst possible fashion as openers Murali Vijay and Quinton de Kock went in the opening two overs.

Mayank Agarwal and Pietersen put on 63 for the third wicket but the Indian went for 31 and the former England batsman was deceived by young leggie Yuzvendra Chahal in the 12th over, stumped after hitting two fours and a six in his 29-ball innings.

Dinesh Karthik contributed just one before becoming Muttiah Muralitharan's second victim, but Delhi's top scorer in the tournament, JP Duminy, kept his side in contention.

The South African hit three sixes in making 48 from 30, but after he was clean bowled by Mitchell Starc, his side needed 40 from 14 balls and that proved too much.
