Mumbai Indians won by 8 wickets (with 19 balls remaining)
10 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Malinga to Warner, OUT, the famous Malinga yorker makes an early entry, Warner's feet go nowhere, his bails fly a distance after the ball crashes into the stumps, Malinga provides a big early breakthrough, as he does so often, is there anyone with a better yorker in world cricket today?

DA Warner b Malinga 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Delhi Daredevils 11/1   V Sehwag 10* (5b 1x6)   SL Malinga 0.2-0-1-1

Malinga to Chand, OUT, Malingaaaaa, Chand's debut hasn't gone well,fast length ball, Chand has no clue to Malinga's bowling, stumps in disarray, as is Delhi's innings, Chand was looking to smash that towards midwicket, that balll hits the middle of middle, what a start from Malinga

UBT Chand b Malinga 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 11/2   V Sehwag 10* (5b 1x6)   SL Malinga 0.4-0-1-2

Murtaza to Finch, OUT, Delhi in dire straits now, a direct hit from Sachin Tendulkar removes Virender Sehwag, Mumbai are ecstatic, Finch played the legstump delivery towards short fine leg and sets off for a single, hesitates midway but Sehwag still wanted the run, Tendulkar fired it in and hit the stumps, Sehwag so far out that the third umpire wasn't needed

V Sehwag run out 19 (16b 2x4 1x6) SR: 118.75

Delhi Daredevils 27/3   AJ Finch 6* (7b 1x4)   AG Murtaza 1.4-0-10-0

Harbhajan Singh to Finch, OUT, and that's the end of Finch, this is turning into a mismatch, a tossed up delivery from Harbhajan, Finch goes for the sweep, top-edges it and Tendulkar is shouting 'catch it, catch it' as Rayudu seems to have misjudged it slightly early on, he moves across to his left from deep backward square leg quickly though to latch on to the ball, Delhi four down now

AJ Finch c Rayudu b Harbhajan Singh 8 (12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Delhi Daredevils 40/4   NV Ojha 11* (9b 1x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 2-0-12-1

Murtaza to Ojha, OUT, that's the end of the partnership, Murtaza breaks through, Ojha skips beyond leg and launches the ball towards long-off where Malinga accepts the catch

NV Ojha c Malinga b Murtaza 29 (30b 2x4 1x6) SR: 96.66

Delhi Daredevils 82/5   Y Venugopal Rao 22* (23b 2x4)   AG Murtaza 3.2-0-16-1

Murtaza to Pathan, OUT, is he gone for a golden duck? Pathan guides the ball towards short cover and sets off for a single, there was no run in it and he has to turn back, fielder fires in the throw to the keeper, who breaks the stumps, a gazillion replays required to take the decision, I think he is out, and after much deliberation, the giant screen says 'Out', not a great comeback for Irfan

IK Pathan run out 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 82/6   Y Venugopal Rao 22* (23b 2x4)   AG Murtaza 3.3-0-16-1

Malinga to Venugopal Rao, OUT, Malinga is unstoppable, a swinging low full toss, Venugopal looks to drive that one, but the movement means he can only gets an inside-edge on it, and ball carries on to the base of middle stump

Y Venugopal Rao b Malinga 26 (25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.00

Delhi Daredevils 88/7   RE van der Merwe 2* (3b)   SL Malinga 2.2-1-8-3

Malinga to Morkel, OUT, oh dear, Morkel's got a new bat but that isn't enough to keep another Maling toe-crusher out, another yorker, another bowled, the richest man in India is quite happy with that, Mukesh Ambani jumps out of his seat to applaud Malinga's fourth

M Morkel b Malinga 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 88/8   RE van der Merwe 2* (3b)   SL Malinga 2.4-1-8-4

Harbhajan Singh to Yadav, 1 wide, OUT, turns that one a long way, Umesh Yadav can't cover for the spin, it slides past the pads as he looks to nudge the ball to the leg side, Jacobs collects and have an eternity to remove the bails, Delhi nine down, will they be the first team to be bowled out this season?

UT Yadav st †Jacobs b Harbhajan Singh 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 90/9   RE van der Merwe 3* (4b)   Harbhajan Singh 2.3-0-14-2

Malinga to Dinda, OUT, no they can't, Malinga gets a five-for, 5-13, third-best figures in IPL history, it's not bowled this time, it's short of a length, slower one, Dinda is much too early into the shot and the gently lobs to mid-off, and Delhi have folded for 95

AB Dinda c Franklin b Malinga 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 95/10   RE van der Merwe 8* (6b 1x4)   SL Malinga 3.4-1-13-5
