Indian Premier League, 26th match: Delhi Daredevils v Kings XI Punjab at Delhi, Apr 23, 2011
Delhi Daredevils won by 29 runs
23 April 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Warner, no run, first ball comes in to Warner, who defends it to the leg side


Kumar to Warner, 1 wide, way down the leg side


Kumar to Warner, FOUR, thats power from Warner, a touch short and on legstump, Warner hammers that past a diving deep backward square leg for four


Kumar to Warner, FOUR, slower ball from Praveen sits up for Warner, 108kmh, Warner gets back and cracks it past extra cover for four more, not the finest of starts from Praveen


Kumar to Warner, 1 run, full and on the legstump, Warner leans across and tucks the ball to deep square leg, the fielder at the boundary slips but manages to stop the ball


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   P Kumar 1-0-10-0

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


Kumar to Warner, 1 wide, Praveen is having trouble with his line today, once more slips it past leg


Kumar to Warner, no run

Delhi Daredevils 26/0   P Kumar 2-0-21-0

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 Warner, 1 run, full and on offstump, driven to mid-off for a quick single, there is a direct hit but Warner is easily home


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   P Kumar 3-0-38-0

Kumar to Warner, 1 run, worked towards short third for a single


Kumar to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, length ball on offstump, worked off the back foot to the right of the bowler for a single


Kumar to Warner, 3 runs, length ball outside off, powered off the backfoot towards past extra cover, where a diving in the deep keeps the batsmen to three, David Hussey it was who did the fielding, which gets some applause form Praveen


Kumar to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, length ball on offstump, worked behind point


Kumar to Warner, OUT, Punjab pulling things back here, Warner is gone as he again gets on one knee and looks to clear long-on as he has so often today, this time he can't get it past Ryan Harris, who is lurking in the deep once more, end of Warner's innings

DA Warner c Harris b Kumar 77 (48b 7x4 4x6) SR: 160.41


Kumar to Finch, 1 run, Finch wanted to play his first ball towards midwicket, gets a leading edge back towards the bowler

Delhi Daredevils 180/3   P Kumar 4-0-45-1
