Rishabh Pant celebrates match-winning knock with sister: SEE PIC !!

It's towards a phenomenal victory over Gujarat Lions by 7 wickets on Thursday night.

"I wasn't thinking about the three runs [to reach his century], I was just thinking about chasing down the runs as quickly as I can", Pant said.

Earlier, legendery cricketer Sachin Tendulkar dubbed Pant's knock as "one of the best innings" in tournaments history.

Later, Shreyas Iyer as well as Corey Anderson turned up the match for hosts.

MTV Awards Celebrate Gender 'Fluidity'
Evangelist Franklin Graham lashed out on Twitter Monday night at MTV's first gender-neutral acting awards. The first award presenter was Asia Kate Dillon, the first gender non-binary character on television.

The 133-run stand ended with the run out dismissal of Raina and soon Karthik followed the suit after bringing his own half century.

"Glad that you haven't been watching videos of me batting", Delhi Daredevils coach Rahul Dravid jokingly told Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson after their aggressive knocks guided the team to its second successive IPL win.

Pant-Samson added 143 runs for the second wicket to help Daredevils keep their IPL 2017 campaign alive with a seven-wicket win. Gujarat was 13/2; they were expected to play responsibly, Raina taking full responsibility got off the mark with a six of first ball his early big shots helped Gujarat to get back on track with 58/2 at the end of power play.

Thereafter skipper Raina and Karthink joined hands and the duo mixed caution with aggression to take Gujarat forward.

China trade deal is big, but not that big
The takeaway: "It's a lot like Trump's executive orders that talk a lot but didn't do much", according to the former US official. China will issue licences to two American financial institutions to underwrite bonds by July 16.

Both these players have the uncanny knack of hitting sixes, even off good balls, and what that skill does is give them a chance to stay with the required run rate even with all the fielders back once the restrictions are done.

The misses hurt Mohammed Shami first as Raina took 14 off his first four balls before Raina picked out Samuels at midwicket on 42 only for the Delhi debut to shell the ball. But Karthik was at his attacking best as he smashed Amit Mishra for a six and a four.

At one stage there was a stretch of four consecutive sixes and five in the space of eight balls in the 11th and 12th overs bowled by James Faulkner and Ravindra Jadeja.

But an over later an in-form Raina departed as he fell prey to an unnecessary mix-up.
