23 April 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, the crowd finds its voice with Sehwag on strike., a short of length ball is defended off the front foot


Kumar to Sehwag, no run, Praveen has his hands on his head after he beats Sehwag with a ball that jags away after pitching on off, Sehwag looks to drive and can't get bat on ball, that's more of what Gilchrist wants from Praveen on this green track

Delhi Daredevils 10/0   V Sehwag 0* (2b)

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, overpitched on middle and off, Sehwag gets forward and defends towards cover


Kumar to Sehwag, 2 runs, Sehwag gets off the mark, but not too convincingly, he wants to launch that over extra cover off the front foot, doesn't time it at all, Piyush Chawla runs after it in the hope of getting under that lofted shot, it too far for him


Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, much better stroke from Sehwag, both feet off the air as he clips a legstump delivery through midwicket, no power behind that shot but it fetched him a boundary


Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag's in top gear now, he's been given width, never a good idea, he latches on to that one, and powers it over point for four


Kumar to Sehwag, 1 leg bye, that one jagged in sharply from off stump line, Sehwag looks to whip it to the leg stump but it is off his pads

Delhi Daredevils 25/0   V Sehwag 10* (7b 2x4)

Harris to Sehwag, 1 run, quick incutter from Harris, did that hit him on the glove as he looked to guide that to cover, Sehwag's doesn't wring his hand or show other signs of discomfort, perhaps the ball hit the handle


Harris to Sehwag, no run, Harris troubling Sehwag here, Sehwag is cut in half by a ball that snakes in after bouncing


Harris to Sehwag, 1 run, and again Sehwag survives and awkward shot, he was looking to work that to the leg side, gets the edge past slip and down to third man

Delhi Daredevils 29/0   V Sehwag 12* (10b 2x4)

Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, Praveen's poor day continues, a full toss to start the over, all too easy for Sehwag, who doesn't move his feet, just a swing of the bat to send the ball over the bowler's head


Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, much better from Sehwag, cut in from Praveen, Sehwag again wants to play it to leg, edged down to third man, this hasn't been Sehwag at his best


Kumar to Sehwag, 1 wide, another wide, down the leg side


Kumar to Sehwag, 2 runs, full and on the pads, whipped towards deep midwicket where Ryan Harris has plenty of ground to make before he can cut it off


Kumar to Sehwag, 1 run, just outside off, played towards short third man


Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, width from Praveen, thanks say Sehwag and slashes that powerfully past point for four to bring up Delhi's 50, not a bad start at all after being sent in

Delhi Daredevils 52/0   V Sehwag 27* (15b 5x4)

Srivastava to Sehwag, 5 wides, big movement for Srivastava, unfortunately for him that starts on leg and swings a long way down, that was 138kmh

Delhi Daredevils 104/0   V Sehwag 37* (22b 6x4)

Chawla to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag also shows his soft side, a full ball pitching outside leg beautiful use of the wrist, throw in some terrific timing and that ball is speeding away to the square leg boundary


Chawla to Sehwag, 1 run, again on the leg stump, worked to midwicket


Chawla to Sehwag, FOUR, Chawla continues to get stick, a length ball on offstump, Sehwag makes a bit of room and launches that over extra cover for four, he's closing in on his half-century now

Srivastava to Sehwag, 1 run, lovely from Sehwag, lifts his front leg as he glances the ball down towards fine leg


Srivastava to Sehwag, 2 runs, short ball rises sharply on Sehwag, an ungainly nurdle as he gets the ball away from shoulder height, Sehwag has to dive to make his ground as he comes back for the second, and that's his first half-century of the season, Sid Monga points out another first, first dive he's seen Sehwag dive to make his ground


Srivastava to Sehwag, SIX, nothing working for Punjab, Sehwag gets a top edge as he pulls the ball, gets the top-edge and the fielder at deep square leg was interested but it just about clears him and the rope


Srivastava to Sehwag, 2 runs, smashed off the front foot through extra cover


Srivastava to Sehwag, 1 run, a slow full toss to end the over, inside-edged onto the pads, Sehwag doesn't know where the ball is after it cannons off the pads, it's behind his leg, Warner calls him through for a single

Delhi Daredevils 128/0   V Sehwag 59* (31b 8x4 1x6)

Hussey to Sehwag, SIX, Hussey's first ball of the season is clobbered over long-on by Sehwag for six, fasten your seat belts, folks, carnage ahead


Hussey to Sehwag, SIX, another six, Punjab are clueless, Kotla crowd goes bonkers, gets his front leg out of the way and swats that over midwicket for six


Hussey to Sehwag, SIX, make that three in a row, at this rate, Punjab will need more than Agarkar's largesse to win this game, this time over deep square leg, Sehwag in an everything-must-go mode here


Hussey to Sehwag, OUT, relief for Punjab, the Delhi crowd is silenced, Sehwag goes for his fourth six in a row but can't latch on to the ball as well as he would have liked, a bit of an inside-edge and that is taken smartly by Karthik at deep midwicket
