11.1

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, 1 no ball, the bowler's over-stepped while bowling a length ball outside off, the batsman tried to cut but was beaten, free hit coming up

11.1

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, a low full toss but Venu just gets under it, lofting it cleanly over the bowler's head for four

11.3

11.5

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, he's teed off! Venugopal stood his ground and swung a length ball in the air towards wide long-on. Has it cleared the boundary? It's been called six but it bounced a couple of feet inside the boundary. The decision is changed to four.

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, no run, defended on the leg side

Delhi Daredevils 85/3   A Mithun 2-0-16-1

14.1

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, SIX, just a flick of the wrists, as Shastri would say. Too full on leg and Venu launches it with a firm flick, sending the ball soaring over deep backward square leg

14.2

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, short of a length on leg and middle, Venu plays the ball towards midwicket and sets off

14.3

Mithun to Hopes, no run, Hopes tries to hit the ball a bit too hard and mis-times it towards the bowler

14.4

Mithun to Hopes, 1 no ball, caught at point! The ball was average, full and wide outside off, and Hopes went after it, slashing with power. He didn't get enough elevation though and Dilshan throws the ball high in the air after taking a sharp chance. The umpire wants to check if Mithun has over-stepped though, and he has. Marginally. That will do though. Hopes stays and has a free-hit coming up.

14.4

Mithun to Hopes, 1 run, full toss on the pad, flicked firmly but to midwicket

14.5

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, no run, short ball outside off, the batsman chases and misses

14.6

Mithun to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, full and wide outside off, cut to the fielder at point

Delhi Daredevils 115/3   A Mithun 3-0-26-1

18.1

Mithun to Hopes, 2 runs, a fullish ball outside off, the batsman makes room and carves the ball in the air and over extra cover

18.2

Mithun to Hopes, OUT, caught behind! But the umpire is checking if Mithun over-stepped again. This time he hasn't, but by the skin of his teeth. Hopes aimed for the big swing down the ground and the angle of the ball across the right-hander induced the edge to the keeper

JR Hopes c †de Villiers b Mithun 54 (43b 7x4 0x6) SR: 125.58

18.3

Mithun to Pathan, 1 wide, that's a wayward delivery down leg side, Pathan swung but had no hope of making contact

18.3

Mithun to Pathan, 1 wide, now it's full but wide outside off, Pathan lets it go

18.3

Mithun to Pathan, SIX, bang! Length ball angling into the left-hander, Pathan lines it up and smashes through the line, hitting it flat and over the long-on boundary

18.4

Mithun to Pathan, no run, Pathan aims for the flamboyant drive over cover but gets beaten by a full ball wide outside off

18.5

Mithun to Pathan, 1 wide, full ball outside off stump, Pathan swings and misses, the umpire calls it wide. Harsh call. Pathan edged that towards the keeper. The ball bounced before reaching AB

18.5

Mithun to Pathan, no run, the slower ball outside off stump, Pathan heaves and fails

18.6

Mithun to Pathan, no run, another full ball outside off stump beats Pathan
