Balaji to Warner,
that's the end of Warner, he's not looked himself in the last couple of games. Again stuck pre-meditatedly on the back foot, and goes for a compulsive cut though Balaji kept this very tight outside off. The resultant under edge crashed into the stumps. Bala is chuffed.
DA Warner b Balaji 2 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33
Unadkat to Sehwag,
Unadkat has picked up the most important wicket of the day. He's got Sehwag on the pull, with another serious bouncer. 134 kph, hurries onto Sehwag who this time goes for the shot. He was clearly late on it, and ended up top-edging as it got big on him. Fine leg was waiting.
V Sehwag c Balaji b Unadkat 34 (23b 5x4 1x6) SR: 147.82
Iqbal Abdulla to Pathan,
this time, no Pathan c Pathan. This time, it is Pathan c RTD. Looks like Irfan was the designated attacker in this stand, he skated out to the first ball of spin he was facing and looked to cart him with the spin over midwicket. Didn't hit it well enough, and RTD settled under it in the deep.
IK Pathan c ten Doeschate b Iqbal Abdulla 9 (12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 75.00
Pathan to Birt,
Delhi are sinking. Birt bites the dirt. Yusuf gets him with another fired-in short ball. Birt went for the pull but that hurried on him, and he ended up lofting straight to Shakib at deep midwicket.
TR Birt c sub (Shakib Al Hasan) b Pathan 8 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 72.72
Iqbal Abdulla to Hopes,
KKR move closer to the win. Hopes is gone now, cutting a short ball outside off straight to cover. He's hardly come forward, and is probably hampered by the injury. He's just hacked this half-tracker straight to cover.
JR Hopes c Tiwary b Iqbal Abdulla 25 (30b 1x4 1x6) SR: 83.33
Iqbal Abdulla to Ojha,
Ojha combusts. He's not managed to get to the pitch of the ball, or cover for the spin. He's just blindly hoicked Abdulla into the Kotla night, and Lee settles down under it, well inside the straight boundary.
NV Ojha c Lee b Iqbal Abdulla 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
Lee to Venugopal Rao,
Lee, you champion. He's produces a one-of-a-kind run-out, seemed like a scene out of NBA this. Length ball outside off, Venu goes for a big swipe and misses. Nagar comes for the single, Venu responds, the keeper collects, Lee arrests his follow through and back pedals towards the non-striker's stumps. The throw is looped in high, Lee leaps up to collect, and then twists mid-air and then slam-dunks the stumps down from a big height. Venu was stuck behind Lee, not that he even had a chance of making his crease. Spectacular.
Y Venugopal Rao run out 19 (18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 105.55
Lee to Nagar,
another duck for Agarkar. Lee sends down another thunderbolt yorker outside off, Nagar squeezes to mid off, Agarkar has hared halfway down before turning back. Easier collection and finish from Lee this time.
AB Agarkar run out 0 (0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -
Balaji to Nagar,
Nagar is gone now, he's not timed the pull to another slower bouncer, he looked to swat it from well outside off, and ended up popping it to the keeper.
Y Nagar c †Goswami b Balaji 19 (12b 0x4 2x6) SR: 158.33
