Presentation

Ajit Agarkar is the Man of the Match and he says: "It is good that Irfan, Morne and Umesh have been bowling so well. They put the pressure on the batsman, I need to just stick to the basics. I thought we nearly made a meal of the chase, there was pressure but I am happy with the way it ended."

Mahela Jayawardene, the Delhi Dardevils' Captain says: "Very happy with the way we played. We made a few mistakes but happy to cross the line, I thought the bowling was great. We bat deep in the line-up, it was great that the guys fought hard. We need to make sure that we prepare well. It is good to have games like this."

Marcus North, the losing Perth Scorchers' Skipper says: "I thought 140 was a par score. I thought we played very well in the first 10 overs, we then lost our way after the dismissal of Shaun. Credit to Delhi for pulling us back."
