Delhi Daredevils won by 38 runs
30 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)
  Delhi Daredevils innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner b Sreesanth 3 7 0 0 42.85
1.1 It's the good Sreesanth first ball, even though it needs some low bounce. Sreesanth bowls short of a length, around middle and leg, and the ball doesn't get up and squeezes under Warner's bat. Off stump gone 4/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* c Hodge b Vinay Kumar 80 47 8 5 170.21
17.5 They finally get Sehwag out. Well worked-out dismissal. Vinay goes round the wicket, has long-on, deep extra, and sweeper-cover, and angles the ball across hi. It is a slower ball, and he doesn't get his all on this shot towards extra cover, and picks the man on the boundary. Top innings, though - 49 off the last 15 balls he faced 132/5
View dismissal NV Ojha lbw b Sreesanth 0 3 0 0 0.00
1.4 What do you do Jack? This ball hasn't bounced at all. It's bowled back of a length, Ojha goes back to defend it, but it has almost rolled along the ground, hitting him on the boot. No wonder they use this ground more often for football. Good old surli, as we call it in gully cricket, or how Kapil Dev described Kirti Azad's effort to get Ian Botham in the 1983 World Cup semi-final 4/2
View dismissal Y Venugopal Rao lbw b Jadeja 1 10 0 0 10.00
6.2 Gone! Not the best of shot. Playing around the pad, and also playing for the turn. And Jadeja is not the biggest of turners of the ball. Pitches outside off, going straight with the arm, hitting him in front. Looks pretty straight, unless replays show that he was hit outside the line of off. And the relays show it hit him in line with off 35/3
View dismissal Y Nagar run out (Jadeja/†Patel) 22 30 1 0 73.33
14.4 from Vinay Kumar, another slower ball, too full, though, and driven wide of sweeper-cover. There was a couple in here, but Nagar was always slow, especially when starting out for the second. Consequently, an accurate and flat throw from Jadeja catches him short 91/4
View dismissal TR Birt c Vinay Kumar b Powar 20 13 2 1 153.84
18.4 slog-sweep, but Powar is delightfully slow through the air, and Birt is that half a second early into the shot, skying it to deep midwicket 145/6
View dismissal IK Pathan run out (Singh) 13 7 1 1 185.71
19.6 Singh to van der Merwe, good straight drive, but this is a run-out because he has got a finger on it on its way to the stumps at the striker's end. Don't expect the non-striker to be in the crease at this time either. They have not yet decided on this, but Irfan has already thrown his pads off and has started bowling some looseners. Given out finally, and correctly 157/7

  Kochi Tuskers Kerala innings (target: 158 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BB McCullum b Pathan 7 7 1 0 100.00
2.1 so does MCCullum. You can't fight this track this way. McCullum charges at Pathan again, assumingly to negate the low bounce, but Pthan pitches this short, and the ball stlll manages to sneak under the bat. Pitched half day the track, hitting the middle stump half way up. Go figure 15/2
View dismissal M Klinger c van der Merwe b Morkel 2 6 0 0 33.33
1.6 van der merwe you beauty! I was looking at the square-leg boundary as Klinger clipped this nicely off his pads. And in the way stood RVDM, who jumped at least as high as a goal post, and caught this in two hands. Lovely catch 10/1
View dismissal PA Patel b Pathan 1 3 0 0 33.33
4.3 Call the hobbits. This is sneaking under Parthiv Patel's bat too. All you have to do is bowl short, and on the stumps, and watch the magic. Patel's off stump gone, and he is squatting SRT-style 28/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Sehwag b Agarkar 18 28 2 0 64.28
9.4 Mahela looks at the pitch with disgust. And he is not the first one on the night. Looks to chip this over midwicket, the ball doesn't come on at all, and he ends up lobbing it to midwicket. That's the game for Delhi 50/4
View dismissal BJ Hodge c †Ojha b Morkel 27 25 3 0 108.00
13.1 No it isn't! This game is gone. Morkel comes back and bowls a peach to get Hodge out. Lovely bowling too, didn't need the wicket to do anything here. Back of a length, pitches off, moves away slightly, enough to take the edge 77/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja c van der Merwe b Agarkar 31 22 3 1 140.90
17.6 Full toss hit straight down wide long-on's throat, but they are checkingnif this is too high a full toss. No it isn't, says the replay. Off you go, Ravindra 118/7
View dismissal B Akhil c †Ojha b Morkel 13 9 0 1 144.44
15.2 Too good, is Morkel. He is the only one getting extra bounce from this wicket. This one jumps from back of a length, and takes the edge as Akhil heaves away 93/6
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Yadav b van der Merwe 11 9 0 1 122.22
18.5 and it's all over. Vinay Kumar gets a thick edge on an intended big hit, and it lobs to point where Yadav takes an athletic catch 119/10
View dismissal RR Powar b van der Merwe 0 1 0 0 0.00
18.1 Bowled him! No uneven bounce here, as it is a full toss that has gone straight through and hit the middle stump. Powar took half a step down the track, but was done in by this quick low full toss 118/8
View dismissal S Sreesanth b van der Merwe 0 2 0 0 0.00
18.3 Taste of his own medicine for Sreesanth, who got two wickets with shooters, surlis himself. The boot is on the other foot as this pitches back of a length and hits the base of the off stump. Not much he could have done with this one 118/9
