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

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

Delhi Daredevils 5/0   DA Warner 4* (2b 1x4)   P Kumar 0.2-0-5-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 9/0   DA Warner 8* (3b 2x4)   P Kumar 0.3-0-9-0

Harris to Warner, FOUR, and again Harris gets the ball to rise rapidly, Warner looks to fend that, gets the outside edge which flies well wide of first slip and to the third man boundary

Delhi Daredevils 14/0   DA Warner 13* (10b 3x4)   RJ Harris 1-0-4-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 20/0   V Sehwag 6* (5b 1x4)   P Kumar 1.3-0-16-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 24/0   V Sehwag 10* (6b 2x4)   P Kumar 1.4-0-20-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 39/0   V Sehwag 16* (11b 3x4)   P Kumar 2.1-0-25-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 43/0   V Sehwag 20* (12b 4x4)   P Kumar 2.2-0-29-0

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)   P Kumar 3-0-38-0

Srivastava to Warner, FOUR, not as convincing from Warner this time, the ball moves away from him as he looks to cut, it is on to him quicker than he expected and the ball flies off the top edge past slip

Delhi Daredevils 69/0   DA Warner 31* (19b 4x4 2x6)   SJ Srivastava 0.5-0-16-0

Nayar to Warner, FOUR, back of a length, just down the leg side, helped along to the fine leg boundary

Delhi Daredevils 76/0   DA Warner 37* (22b 5x4 2x6)   AM Nayar 0.3-0-6-0

Chawla to Warner, FOUR, first ball of spin, short from Chawla, smashed to the square leg boundary for four by Warner

Delhi Daredevils 83/0   DA Warner 43* (25b 6x4 2x6)   PP Chawla 0.1-0-4-0

Chawla to Sehwag, FOUR, not a good start from Chawla, another boundary, to midwicket, a horribly short ball from Chawla

Delhi Daredevils 88/0   V Sehwag 34* (19b 6x4)   PP Chawla 0.3-0-9-0

Valthaty to Warner, FOUR, the hundred stand comes up as Warner finesses the ball behind backward point for a four, nicely done

Delhi Daredevils 102/0   DA Warner 56* (31b 7x4 3x6)   PC Valthaty 0.4-0-11-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 108/0   V Sehwag 41* (23b 7x4)   PP Chawla 1.1-0-16-0

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

Delhi Daredevils 114/0   V Sehwag 46* (25b 8x4)   PP Chawla 1.4-0-22-0

Nayar to Nagar, FOUR, Nagar is underway, width on offer and he slashes that past point for four

Delhi Daredevils 156/1   Y Nagar 4* (6b 1x4)   AM Nayar 1.2-0-14-0

Harris to Ojha, FOUR, lovely touch from Ojha, skips towards leg and opens the face to get a faint tickle past the keeper for four, Gilchrist puts in the dive but in vain

Delhi Daredevils 188/4   NV Ojha 4* (2b 1x4)   RJ Harris 2.2-0-17-0

Srivastava to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, beautiful hit from Venu, makes room and carves it over extra cover for a boundary that brings up the first 200 of the season

Delhi Daredevils 202/4   Y Venugopal Rao 17* (9b 1x4 1x6)   SJ Srivastava 3.3-0-39-0

Harris to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, Delhi piling on the runs, a length ball spearing down leg, Rao slams it to midwicket for four

Delhi Daredevils 213/4   Y Venugopal Rao 22* (12b 2x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 3.1-0-30-0

Harris to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, Rao on fire here, a short ball on legstump, Rao stands tall and pulls that authoritatively to square leg for four

Delhi Daredevils 222/4   Y Venugopal Rao 26* (13b 3x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 3.2-0-39-0
