Disciplined bowling from Delhi Daredevils, led by Zaheer Khan, saw them beat Rising Pune Supergiant by 7 runs in their IPL 2017 match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Friday, to keep them waiting to seal the birth for the play-offs. Losing Rahul Tripathi (7) and Ajinkya Rahane (0) early in their innings, meant Pune couldn’t get the start they wanted.

After this game Pune are still placed third with 16 points and slots are wide open for Kings XI Punjab, Sunrises Hyderabad to book their berths for play-offs
