View dismissal UBT Chand b Lee 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 what a start that is to the season, forget Pitbull, this is what people want to see, Lee steams in and fires in a lethal away-cutter, Unmukt Chand is clueless against that one, off stump is reclining on the turf, all those wanting to see Chand will be disappointed, but Lee is jumping for joy 0/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Kallis b Narine 21 30 19 4 0 110.52
5.5 there's the impact Narine can have, Warner is gone, that was a tough tough delivery first up for Warner, it spat up off the pitch, a lot more than Warner expected, he edges it through to first slip, where the man with one of the safest pairs of hands, Jacques Kallis, snaps it up as comfortably as he has over the past 15 years 44/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Narine b Lee 66 94 52 8 1 126.92
18.6 another full toss from Lee, this time the result is completely different, Jayawradene looks to make room and chip it over the off side, ends up chipping it to Narine at cover, Jayawardene is distraught at that 125/8
View dismissal MC Juneja c Shukla b Balaji 8 13 9 1 0 88.88
8.5 terrific catch by Shukla, Juneja continued to throw his bat at everything, he skipped away from the stumps and skied that towards deep point, the ball is in the air for ages, Shukla has plenty of ground to cover, he charges in and lunges to take a low catch 59/3
View dismissal NV Ojha c Lee b Bhatia 9 9 9 1 0 100.00
11.6 the lack of runs has forced Ojha to go for the bit hit, he steps out and sends it a long way in the air but not long enough, he picks pout Brett Lee at long-off, no problem taking that one, Delhi losing their way here 79/4
View dismissal J Botha lbw b Bhatia 7 7 6 1 0 116.66
13.2 goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and that wasn't going to miss the stumps, struck on the thigh pad just outside off stump, and he's a goner, a touch unlucky for Botha, more reward for Bhatia, who continues to be a canny customer in the IPL 88/5
View dismissal IK Pathan c Tiwary b Narine 4 10 7 0 0 57.14
15.2 Narine is magic in the IPL, how long before the questions over his 1.9million tag crops up, he was much too early into his hoick, sends the ball high and not far at all, Tiwary gets under that at long-off, and Delhi have lost another 97/6
View dismissal AD Russell c & b Narine 4 11 8 0 0 50.00
17.5 this was coming , Russell really didn't have much of an idea of what Narine was bowling, he closes the face much too early to a legspinner and that lobs up off the leading edge to Narine, who collects that easily, doesn't bother celebrating, just drops the ball at his feet, 'boringly easy this is,' he seems to be saying 113/7
View dismissal S Nadeem run out (†Bisla/Narine) 4 13 8 0 0 50.00
19.6 from Narine, Delhi are all out! the batsman goes for another heave, bottom edges it not too far from the stumps, and there's some confused running, easy run-out at the non-striker's end 128/10
View dismissal A Nehra c Shukla b Narine 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
19.5 and another wicket for Narine, Nehra goes for the midwicket swipe favoured by tailenders, he can't get it far enough, and Delhi have lost nine 128/9

View dismissal MS Bisla c Chand b Nehra 4 6 9 1 0 44.44
1.4 Bisla is gone, back of a length ball outside, perhaps bounced more than Bisla expected, he was shaping for a big shot, ends up chipping it almost straight up and a host of fielders have time to get under that one, Delhi get their first 5/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* lbw b Botha 41 58 29 5 1 141.37
13.1 Botha has struck, is that too late for Delhi, Gambhir was waiting on the back foot, this was flatter and not turning much from Botha, Gambhir misses and is struck in front of middle and leg, would that have gone on to hit leg stump? Perhaps, it would have, Taufel was sure though, and he sends Gambhir on his way 93/3
View dismissal JH Kallis c Chand b Nadeem 23 26 20 5 0 115.00
7.2 Nadeem has struck! with a frankly terrible ball, that was a half-tracker, Kallis could have sent that to any part of leg-side boundary, instead he swipes that straight to midwicket, good catch in the deep, and Nadeem has a big wicket 52/2
View dismissal MK Tiwary c †Ojha b Nadeem 23 30 23 2 0 100.00
14.2 Is there life left in this game yet? Tiwary has been all at sea against the spinners today, he was looking to sweep this time, sharp turn for Nadeem and that takes the top edge, loops to the left of the keeper, who moves across to collect that 99/4
