Delhi Capitals climbed to the top of the Indian Premier League with a seven-wicket win over Punjab Kings on Sunday.
Victory took 2020 runners-up Delhi two points above Chennai Super Kings, who have a game in hand.
Punjab suffered a setback before the match when captain KL Rahul was hospitalised with acute appendicitis.
Stand-in captain Mayank Agarwal did his best to cover the loss of his fellow India batsman, and this season's leading run-scorer in the IPL, with an unbeaten 99.
But wickets fell around him as Punjab were held to a total of 166-6, with South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada taking 3-36.
Agarwal went into the 90s in the last over, a four and a six off the penultimate two deliveries from Avesh Khan saw him to 95.
Needing six off the last ball for his hundred, the opener could only manage a straight-driven four along the turf.
Agarwal faced 58 balls, including eight fours and four sixes.
India batsman Shikhar Dhawan's 69 not out guided Delhi to 167-3 as they won with 14 balls to spare.
