Indian Premier League, 36th match: Kochi Tuskers Kerala v Delhi Daredevils at Kochi, Apr 30, 2011
Delhi Daredevils won by 38 runs
30 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Sreesanth to Warner, OUT, 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

DA Warner b Sreesanth 3 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Delhi Daredevils 4/1   V Sehwag 0* (0b)   S Sreesanth 0.1-0-0-1

Sreesanth to Ojha, OUT, 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

NV Ojha lbw b Sreesanth 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 4/2   V Sehwag 0* (0b)   S Sreesanth 0.4-0-0-2

Jadeja to Venugopal Rao, OUT, 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

Y Venugopal Rao lbw b Jadeja 1 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

Delhi Daredevils 35/3   V Sehwag 25* (18b 4x4)   RA Jadeja 0.2-0-1-1

Vinay Kumar to Nagar, 1 run, OUT, 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

Y Nagar run out 22 (30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

Delhi Daredevils 91/4   V Sehwag 55* (38b 5x4 3x6)   R Vinay Kumar 2.4-0-23-0

Vinay Kumar to Sehwag, OUT, 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

V Sehwag c Hodge b Vinay Kumar 80 (47b 8x4 5x6) SR: 170.21

Delhi Daredevils 132/5   TR Birt 14* (11b 2x4)   R Vinay Kumar 3.5-0-35-1

Powar to Birt, OUT, 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

TR Birt c Vinay Kumar b Powar 20 (13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 153.84

Delhi Daredevils 145/6   IK Pathan 7* (3b 1x6)   RR Powar 1.4-0-18-1

Singh to van der Merwe, OUT, 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

IK Pathan run out 13 (7b 1x4 1x6) SR: 185.71

Delhi Daredevils 157/7   RE van der Merwe 2* (4b)   RP Singh 4-0-29-0
